For a while, when recovering from a knee operation, I experimented with an mtb chainset on my road bike. 48/38/24 and a 11-28 cassette.

I needed it because I have a lot of very steep hills on my...

At least I've got something I can do as well as Froome. Ride over paint lines on a wet road, downhill, on a bend, and fall off.

But I can't get up and carry on as well as he can.

Up until about a year ago 80% of my riding was single-track or MUP. But after a couple of accidents, which at 69 take a longer time to recover from, I got a road bike and more recently my riding is...

IMO Kittel has moved to his left. Look at the direction of Kittel's wheels. He is moving to his left when Cave is already passing him. I'll go with the judges on this one.

Welcome and well done on the achievements so far.

I always admire people who can get up and exercise at that time in the morning. :eek: I've still got 2.5 hours sleep to go at that time.

Without race officials ruling on incidents such as this there is more chance of random people affecting the result.

You can ride as far as you want to if the bike fits, your arse is saddle trained, and you are not trying to race.

It helps, of course, if you have built up a good base of regular miles, so perhaps...

Earlier this week I had planned to go for a longish, hilly ride, but in the morning had moved a lot of heavy furniture from one home to another so my back was giving me a fair bit of pain.

For riding a bike these weightlifting type exercises are just overkill. You are riding a bike, not WWF wrestling.

Flexibility exercises will be OK, plus experiment with bar height and reach, and...

I'm going to even it up. Next time I see a 90 year old on a bike I'm not going to give him chance to DROP THE HAMMER.
