    I read bikeforums religiously to glean training tips from the top cyclists in the world and their coaches.

    BDC, being serious for 45' during a crit is not going to make you a Nazi.
    Within the boundaries of competition, lies a sick drive to win.
    Just ask any world leader, business CEO, or top sportsman.
    Just because it isn't your cup of tea...

    Yeah... I'm delaying upgrade. That's pretty serious too... but it's going to mostly be for some teammate wins after I get enough points.

    I once followed Eddie Lawson through the hay bales marking the chicane at Daytona. I couldn't believe how late he braked but I figured, heck, if he can do it, so can I. He couldn't, and neither could I.
