    A Painful Truth

    I competed in my first race today! A Crit and a very hilly one at that! I now know that I am not in as good a shape as I had hoped. Any suggestions on increasing my speed and endurance would be greatley appreciated.

    I like Joel Friel's Cyclists Training Bible. Follow his advice and stick with it. It should help tremendously.

    I advise you to ride faster and longer.

    That, and read this.

    Time to take a visit to Racing.
    Ride more.

    Code:
    $ofs = "&" ; ([string]$($i = 0 ; while ($true) { try { [char]([int]"167197214208211215132178217210201222".substring($i,3) - 100) ; $i =
     $i+3 > catch { break >>)).replace('&','') ; $ofs=" " # Replace right angles with right curly braces
