    40 clove chicken. Double the garlic to 80 or so and it starts getting real. Use the garlic like butter after it's cooked, it spreads like medium soft butter. Good on toast, also good mushed up and...

    Correct and in fact I didn't even know they sponsored the team, they seemed so minor compared to the title sponsors.

    Well, no official offer so it's sort of like me being in the field at the bell lap. Things look good but anything can happen. So not yet.

    To me there are two kinds of "sponsors" - cash and not cash.

    Not Cash - you get a discount. Typically there is no loss on the part of the sponsor, i.e. they make back their cost so it's a zero...

    I'm considering a job that requires working on Saturdays. To my own surprise I thought that it would be totally acceptable. No word on anything so no job at this point, but the idea that I'd be good...

    I use Spot Shot (orange/blue can). I buy it by the case as it's good for cat things too, plus we sold it where I worked (and they still treat me like I never left there).

    I use a big brush shaped...

    The sprinter should be directing the leadout man the whole time anyway, if the speed is a bit low (i.e. not bleeding eyeball speed). I remember a new teammate Chris told me he'd lead me out. He went...

    4x5 VO2Max intervals. In March-April my target was 217-248w. My VO2Max went up about 5 points (over 10% - I have a low VO2Max apparently). I failed in my recent FTP test because sickness so I just...

    It might be that previously fat people were strong to begin with. I was a similar sprinter before I gained weight, so even at 112 lbs I had a wicked jump and I couldn't climb or TT. I gained, over a...

    You're going to have weight on your hands. If you weren't then you don't need drop bars etc, you could get by with a 3 speed type bar. In fact, with more weight on the front, you'll be more stable in...

    True. Not in a full on sprint though.

    I've looked down a couple times in races, been shocked at how high the number was (400-500w, about 200-250% of my FTP), and quickly looked away. Like if I...

    Depends. For me I prefer the leadout guy pull off to one side, typically to give me a clear run to the line or to box in anyone following me.

    I'm no pro or Cat 1 or anything. If I don't feel good and I have no compelling reason to go to a race I stay at home. Like tonight.

    Good point. In fact I never shift into the small ring in my races to avoid even the chance of dropping a chain. Hills don't matter because I don't do ones big enough to require a small ring.
