    Other rider singular. One on one is not the same tactics as eleven on one. And by the way, Pereiro didn't exactly concede to Voigt. He still sprinted, just Voigt beat him.

    I'm going to assume you've never raced and try to be kind. When you know an attack is going to come, you have to keep a little in reserve to call upon when the punch gets thrown. If you don't,...

    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...

    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.
