    Never be afraid to ask if you spot an empty and better seat on a long flight. Avoid alcohol as such except for maybe one (1) glass of red wine if available. It's a great natural sleep-aid if consumed...

    How true. I used need about 3 of those short sprints and then at least 4/5 min to spin out... until I made the mistake to get off my bike and sit around for 15 min because of a start delay... all the...

    Much good advice here. I remember from my high school/college days that after summer break my metabolism had to readjust after 6 to 7 weeks of paella and bouillabaisse holiday food and doing very...

    I believe in the same that most have posted here. I think warmup is essential for any athletic activity, at any level. All the aforementioned interval techniques work well. I would recommend to...

    Was wondering when I was going to catch condescending demeanor. But what can you expect from a disheveled tin foil hat. Must be that only the forum matadors really know whats up.

    I respectfully disagree. Unless you wish to infer that I don't know the carbon fork on my Bianchi versus the alloy fork on my Colnago.

    I thought that a few of the support cars got a bit too close to some of the riders, specially on the descents. Yesterday too. Today, one of then even tried to overtake a group on the last...

    I have a hard time laying this at the feet of Spec, simply because freak breakage can occur out of left field for just about anyone. Still believe that carbon in spite of its advantages is partially...

    Not the only one. I know them well, I grew up in the area. The Vosges mountains and the Black Forest alike have some "nice" climbs of 6 to 12 km length av. with a few grades here and there that have...

    I also prefer Kirby/Kelley... except for Kirby's "such lovely men" (hehe). Have no trouble understanding Kelley. And I was quite fond of Phil and his castle tours. Not so much Sherwin who's not...

    Thanks for the link. I've enjoyed the album. Wasn't sure who was next to Merckx... thought it was Gimondi at first but it turned out to be Roger Pingeon. Figure everybody recognized Hinault.

    Hate to speculate (lol). Froome's a climber, in form, he's got a chance. Rodriguez, Nibali, Contador... if? Wiggins will concentrate on the TT
