Where to start ...

If George had "stepped up his game" and worked harder, he would have been dropped when the attacks started and come in even further back. He's not an idiot -- he was going for...

The iBike works well. Probably an order of magnitude better than what you're attempting. There's HR drift within a ride, decreasing HR inertia in subsequent efforts, stroke volume changes between...

TSS is certainly more flexible, but there's a place for kJ. One definition of SST would be "crunch as many kJs as you can, given your current time and CTL constraints." That's when I track kJs,...

Nice reply. I was writing something, but yours is better.

Usually you have to be a cat 4 to race masters. That rule isn't about fitness, it's about requiring racing experience (your 10 cat 5 races) before mixing with the other packs.
