    Try holding it for > than 60 mile RR when you're going through a water bottle an hour plus the ones before hand, or a 100 mile training ride with a group.

    The hardest part is getting the flow started. Especially if it is cold out.

    you're right, it's not a problem, but it sure makes it a heck of a lot more comfortable to do it sometimes.

    My bibs are way too tight to even consider an on-the-fly tinkle break. 8(
    It's not how many miles you ride, but how hard you ride them. Time trials aren't races.

    I've had to whizz mid-race and it can be a bit...messy.

    If it is a hot day or you are feeding in liquid form there is a lot of water that needs to go somewhere. Maximal efforts on a full bladder are hell.

    I've had a team mate push me while I've peed (hand on the small of the back and push). I've stopped and peed (I knew the race leader had to go so I stuck with him and the guy helping him. When they stopped, I stopped. We peed. When they chased back on, I sucked wheel).

    Don't know how many times I've stopped during the neutral start to go.

    When ya gotta, ya gotta.

    The Atlanta circuits offered NO place for a "group natural", so they were forced to go on the go.
    In the other stages, it was common to see to 40 or 50 guys stop all together and go.

    If you're drinking that much in a 60 mile rr and have to pee, you're taking in too much fluids
    You're just trying to start an argument to show how smart you are.

    I'm not sure if the producer and/or cameraman were sleeping when that was being shot or what. Actually, apparently they weren't, as they felt the need for a slo-mo version.

    What do the chicks do? Anybody have a slo-mo of that?

    > means greater than. i.e. a 70 or 80 mile one, which equates to almost 4 hours. Feed through liquid and thats 5-6 bottles at 16oz a piece plus one for warmup and one for the race. That's 112oz of fluid. Granted Most of my races aren't this long, but most pro 1-2's are.

    I wonder if that's one of the UCI's reasons for giving women short race length maximums. Having said that, the women are pretty tough - they just go when they have to based on a couple conversations on long training rides.

    Guys do it too.

    Theo de Rooy (not sure how to spell it anymore since the Rasmussen thing where his name was spelled differently from the mid 80s) talks about it to CBS after one of the first Paris Roubaix races CBS aired. He worked in the day long break, went with the winning break when they got caught, looked very good, crashed into Alain Bondue after Bondue fell, and, covered in mud, proceeded to the finish. They ask him how the race went. I think he was sitting in a team car, covered in filth. Rainy day, disgusting conditions.

    "You ride through sh*t, you pee your pants" etc etc etc.

    The interviewer, stunned at the revelations, can't believe anyone would want to subject themselves to such medieval conditions (remember, they're used to interviewing NFL/MLB/NBA players and such - imagine Michael Jordan playing basketball in a manure covered court and having to pee himself while going for 3 pointers?) so he asks a natural (to the interviewer anyway) question.

    "Will you do this race next year?"

    De Rooy looks at the interviewer like the interviewer is insane.

    "Of course, it's the most beautiful race in the world."

    That question became sort of a standard line for CBS, one they'd ask the riders after the finish. The contrast between the conditions and the love for the race is usually too much to leave behind. This is why, even 25 years later, they ask racers "Will you do this race next year?" at the end of interviews. Sounds dumb now, especially when you ask someone like Stuart O'Grady (who is constantly smiling after the race), but at some time there was a reason for asking such things.

    incorrect. you've either never done a race or have only done crits/short RRs, this can be a real issue.

    wfrogge - I find it impossible to get started, this past year at Jeff Cup (72 mi.) I (among many others who are "*** shy" like me), were jumping curbs to get into the bushes after the race, I attacked at the end a few times just to speed things up and get to the line so I could whizz. One guy used the excuse of having to whizz so bad that he quit a lap early as a reason for not finishing the race.

    LOTs of guys going during the race, they got to the side of the road or back of pack with a team mate, got out their junk - usually by pulling bibs down, not pulling leg up, and let it fly. It was typically near the feed zone, where things were a bit more chill.

    I've tried to practice this when training alone, but have issues getting the flow started, maybe I need some flowmax

    Once racing starts I have this same problem. Even when I stop I have to focus.

    Going in the neutral is no problem. If it's a longer race, I'll make sure I stop then, even if I don't feel like I need to go, just to be sure.
