    I've had a tough spring this year. I went to an allergist who determined I had allergies to tree pollen, dust mites and mold. The irony was on the spirometer test despite having symptoms I was able...

    Today is my day off but yesterday I completed 582 miles in May. The pollen in the air here is still very bad and my EIB keeps me indoors. I found a technique to try and deal with it Friday evening...

    Tinkoff needs to get serious about the other 7 members of the Tour de France team if he expects Contador to do well. This team was so bad there must have been a smell when they passed by as a group;...

    It must be embarrassing for Contador to run the last half of every stage by himself surrounded by seven Astana riders. For all Tinkoff's jabbering and money spent it looks like his team consists of...

    No one disputes that some of those associated with auto racing are physically fit. But that assertion (not 'fact') doesn't make them athletes. I ride 6000 miles a year and workout with weights but...

    Same combination for me. The past months have been filled with the classics and 'tours.' Our cable gets all NBCSN, USN and BEIN. Yesterday I watched the Giro, Tour of Norway final and Stage 2 of the...

    Thanks! I understand you chose to let it go. However I'll aim this out in general. First of all having watched every stage of both the TOC and GdI there have been a number of riders bailing...

    I can identify with Talansky. I suffer from allergies from the tree pollen. I've tried three times to go out and ride and each time at twenty BPM below my usual my bronchioles hurt like hell. I...

    There was an hour long summary, but is was snippets of all the stages. Sucks really. They've shown only two UCI World's women road championship races. However they've shown the same bloody Belgium...

    I thought I was the only one who felt this way. At last year's Tour he was getting no support. At the end of his best chance stages there were no lime green shirts to help out. If he went to catch...

    The last and most serious crash was partly caused by poor barrier design permitting the crowd members to extend their arms (and cameras!) into the path of the riders. Last fall there was a horrible...

    Three crashes this Giro were caused by outside influences. I was watching the finish with Contador. A cameraman with a Canon DSLR and long 500mm lens had it stuck over the barrier shooting. These...

    An occasional infrequent NSAID is fine. I don't think anyone is advocating daily use. My mother in law almost died with an ulcer from using Ibuprophen daily for years. I still use it occasionally...

    I use the Miolink. I also own the Garmin chest strap. The Garmin strap, unless washed after every 3-4 rides would short out for me from the salt in dried perspiration. The Miolink never fails to run...

    Good for you. The last few pairs of transitions I got I told the doctor where I wanted the reading area to go to. He doesn't get to decide unless you let him. Your money, your decision.
