    I guess it's probably a bad idea to ride just before starting a 24 hour fast and "cleansing" in preparation for a colonoscopy.
    Thanks.

    perhaps, but it's a better idea than riding after you start

    AZTR, Watsup???

    When a poster goes silent there can be many reasons. Stealth mode, pissed off, crashed, fat, bored, sick, tired of reading about crashes and etc.

    The last we heard was a new uber secret diet destined to turn AZT in to a Schleck brother look alike.

    Almost a comprehensive list, but not quite. In my own case it was injured (but not crashed) followed by fat, followed by pissed off.

    But I too had noticed that AZT had gone quiet. Hope he's OK.
    There have been many days when I haven't felt like riding, but there has never been a day when I was sorry I rode.

    Successful routine medical procedure. A lot of personal issues that are leading to a lot of unexpected work and sadness. No riding since Tuesday evening. Will try to make up for it a bit over the weekend. One recent positive was that my wife won her age grade and was first woman overall for the Pasadena Senior Games 5 Km (Running) Road Race. We'll both be in Minneapolis if I live that long.
    Thanks.

    Skipped a race today because I woke up with a bout of gout in the ball of my right foot. I used to get those a lot when I was fatty and drinking mass quantities. Not sure what triggered this one, but it sucks.

    Do UCI Pros Race Enough

    It seems like the favored racers are crashing out of the TdF more this year than the past. I wonder if it is due to the type of training / racing schedule. My observation is that the UCI pros are training more as a team at team camps and less actual racing. And the stakes for performance are high. That yields higher speeds with less skills.

    In the old days, UCI pros trained and then raced themselves into shape in key races leading up to the grand tours. Dunno if there is a paradigm shift or not and maybe my observation is too anecdotal and colored by losses of Schleck, Froome, Cav and others plus the crashes by Van Garderen and Talanski.

    Unless you've been on a bacon burrito diet for the past few months, I can attest that you are not fat.

    I think this year is somewhat of an anomaly. Cav crashed himself out plain and simple. The Candy Brothers were flashes in the pan. The UK stages were fairly dangerous due to the crowds although the early stages every year are crashy with the lack of climbing and the flat finishes. Talansky got chopped but that's nothing new.

    My wife did win catering for 20 from Chipotle for a 1/2 Marathon she did. We invited 30, 20 said they were coming, 8 showed up and the portions provided would have been good for 50 or so.

    That might have contributed.
