    Kate Courtney races bikes for free at Stanford; the school is NOT paying for her education because she can pedal well.

    As far as Stanford is concerned, she's a normal student, not a varsity...

    You might get into Stanford, University of Chicago or an Ivy League school over someone else of equal academic talent (the top 3-5% of students, in terms of both test scores and GPA)...

    Not necessarily more expensive bikes. I'd say it's that the CAT5s actually paid for them.

    I'm watching the post-race show right now.

    I think what most impresses me is the post race hostess. She can rap with these dudes in like 12 different languages. She's got a Walloon (Gilbert), a...

    I really don't understand C-G sometimes. I really think some of the guys on that team have much more legs than sense. Like Ryder Hesjedal riding at the back of the field and losing 4min when Astana...

    I think Doge thinks that is a quote from the former CEO of USAC, also named Tim Johnson.

    There are plenty of people that make "BSA30" bottom brackets, actually. Zipp, Enduro, RaceFace, etc. Threaded, but with a much larger bearing (6806) than a GXP or Shimano cup.

    Looking for my first real (non-CX) road bike in the better part of a decade. Going to get back into road racing. Looking for suggestions. 50cm or so frame, as I'm a tiny little man. 52-53cm ETT.

    Don't take this the wrong way, but it's hard to win or podium in a crit when you're a lap behind.

    I didn't win a single race in the 4s, and I don't think I finished in the top 10 in a mass sprint...

    Today was supposed to be 2x20min Z4.

    Ended up doing 20min, then 15min after a long break.

    I got hit by not one but two wasps through my jersey and shorts towards the end of my first interval....

    I am. But almost entirely on the MTB. A bit of cross.

    Thus, I have a boat load of disc wheels, all carbon. Three pairs of tubulars, two pairs of clinchers. Don't own any aluminum wheels anymore....

    TrainingPeaks/coach bumped my FTP up again last night. F***.

    Getting faster is all fine and dandy until you realize that you have to ride faster/harder all the time. Zones and all that. Blah.

    Anyone have any tips for a lowlander (~2,000ft) who will be racing at 7,000-12,000ft this summer?

    I'll be living at 5,300ft or so, and riding around there isn't really noticeable (10w off FTP, or...

    Yes, minutes. Great workout.

    My ideal weight is 141/64kg. At least, it was back when I was racing on the road exclusively, prior to joining the Army. If I can get down to 143lbs/65kg now, and push...

    Let's be honest about it.

    If you can get out of bed in the morning and do a lunge, you have enough muscle and enough raw strength to win the Tour.

    At 300w, and 90rpm, you're doing a one legged...

    I spent most of 2013 at 7,500'-8,000' in Afghanistan. Felt like I was breathing soup when I got back home to the US.

    FoCo is obviously a lot lower than that, at 5,000'-5,300', depending on where...
