    There's a book out there that covers a lot of this.

    In the meantime, here's a tip that's pure gold: spend as much (or more) time working on bike handling skills as you do on power training. Power...

    I think Voodoo was talking about sports like softball and disc golf; easy sports that everyone in the world can play without much instruction or training.

    Kit Design - Less is More

    I ride with the Wolverine Sports Club established in 1888. (Many of the original members are now dead.)

    For the past 20 years, it's consisted of a touring group, an elite racing team, a speed...

    I've read about mustard and pickle juice relieving cramps almost instantly.

    i haven't had cramps since i read that, so i suppose i could deduce that simply reading about pickle juice alleviates...

    I mis-wrote that. I just said Giant when I should have said Cal Giant in the second reference. Yeah, they're not seeing an uptick.

    In most cases like this, someone in the organization at some...

    There's no ROI at the local level. I can't think of any local team that is garnering enough publicity to make a dent in the consciousness of the public.

    That makes sense. But in regard to fit, do you want them almost touching the knee? Or at a point about 4 or 5" above the knee?

    I've had conversations with vendors, and they're trying to convince...

    Longer shorts, why?

    Trying to find a new vendor for kits in '15 for our club/team. It seems that every manufacturer is going to the much longer inseam for the shorts. They nearly reach the knee now.
    Not sure why that...

    Right about here is where you lost me.


    If you have extra wheels, you'll likely save your race wheels for race day and hard rides.

    So then the next question is: do you share your prize money? Or not?

    Just curious.

    So shoot me. I'm racing this year on a 2006 Trek Madone 5.9 and I love it.

    I bought their new 5.9 last year and HATED it. Loved the electronic shifting, but I could NOT get that bike to go fast,...

    We (VeloPress and I) are actually exploring this as a topic for a book. Though I'm not sure my writing style is best suited. Mark Johnson would be a better fit.

    I think we're no different than any other sport, really, when it comes to taking things more/less seriously.

    But I think cycling has more of its population in the middle-serious range, if that...

    Except for one or two stages this year*, the BOTD (Breakaway of the day) came after a flurry of attacks in the first 10k of the race. One after the next. RadioTour is constantly updating us as to who...

    Thanks, all, for playing along.

  20. Audio from Inside the Caravan at the Amgen Tour

    Here's a sound clip you might find interesting.

    It's a recording of Radio Tour, which is broadcast throughout the race caravan.

    The breakaway on Stage Six had a 50-second lead. When the...

    For what it's worth, I saw FAR FEWER costumed characters at the Amgen Tour this year. And far fewer of them running alongside. On the final day, there were only a handful.

    I think that trend has...

    I had to fill 50 seconds. It was a challenge to shorten intros such as Jens' and a bigger challenge to lengthen intros such as the entire Bissell Devo team. They had nothing on their resume`.

    I agree with this. The guy who wins the race is the national champion. Without question. I just think it sells the sport short to say it wasn't a team effort.

    It's incorrect to think that there's money exchanged on a team like SmartStop or in ANY women's team. I promise you Mike Creed was not making deals with other teams, and I promise you he has nothing...
