    Don't get hung up on numbers. First race, you'll be doing great to finish with the pack. If you're really asking "Can I win my first cat 5 crit with a 2.48 w/kg ftp?", the answer is that the odds...

    Fitness matters, but crits are more about strategy and pacing than ftp. There's also no shame in finishing a cat 5 crit DFL. Pin on a number and go into it with the attitude that you are there to...

    I raced against a guy who had the sudsing issue. It rained for half the race, and he left a trail of white foam oozing out his shorts and on the road. It did have the effect of seeing to it that no...

    I sometimes forget how city dwellers are paragons of bike-friendly considerate driving, whose only interactions with cyclists consist of heartfelt "attaboys" and frequent muffin and coffee handups...

    Dear Abby.

    I like X. Other people like Y. I'll make a vaguely insulting generalization about them. Should I keep using X?

    So in other words, as long as you turn off everything that distinguishes your phone from a cycling computer, it'll work just fine.

    I make it a point not to debate with people who dismiss arguments as nonsense. You seem very personally invested in this issue.

    And yet it happens. Some batteries aren't in perfect condition. Sometimes you forget to plug in the charger overnight. Sometimes you get an unexpected opportunity to ride. etc etc etc

    It doesn't have to happen every time to be a problem. It just has to happen once. It happened to me more than once before I bought my Garmin.

    I don't mean to brag, but I'm naturally twice that awesome. In fact, I used to work at it a little (in between winning Nobel prizes and kicking Eddy Mercx's butt up and down the Alps), but I got...

    What's worth for you not to take a bug or debris to the eye while riding, or not to get road rash on your eyelids in a wreck?
