    I don't think I'm who you think I am... I wasn't on a podium last weekend. And my hair is fabulous.

    Warming up is done by pedaling through the throngs of adoring fans to the sign in...

    Or something like that.

    This is a weird, random thing to write. A little spooky, too, since I don't have a clue who you are.

    Might want to give calcium a try.

    And upping the training if that's possible. I always cramp when I'm least prepared for a race. If that's not an option, then I'd give calcium a serious shot for...

    This seems like a pretty personal thing.

    Personally, if I get in a proper pre-race ride either the day before or the morning before an afternoon race (meaning a 30+ min ride with a couple of...

    Me, too. And that's what I would have always suggested, getting plugged into a club with some experienced people and riding as much as you can with them.

    But this whole Strava phenomenon has...

    These are probably the fields that average 28 mph with the last couple of miles at 35+ and a final sprint of 40+. Of course, that's just the Cat 4s. :p

    Started around 16-17; started racing immediately. Quit around 23. Picked it back up at 29. Didn't improve much in the time off.

    I don't agree with this simply because I do think it's a barrier to entry, as others have mentioned in this post.

    In an ideal world, safety trumps all else. Practically, however, this can be a...

    Why?

    What does it matter to me if you do or do not believe what I write? It doesn't. You can choose to ignore what I say all you like. Doesn't matter a bit.
  18. Good call. Like I said multiple times in...

    Good call.

    Like I said multiple times in previous posts, anyone with a powermeter can get out on the road anytime they want and see those power numbers are b.s. for those speeds.

    No point in...

    You quoted me, but then started going on about my sprinter winning with a 4 guy leadout in a cat 3 race?

    I don't know what you're talking about. I'm not a cat 3 and haven't said anything about...

    It's winning on the internet, dude. Don't you know how important this is?

    Just like a sprint (for those of us who can't jump to 40 mph), you gotta be a little crazy to go for it. ;)

    Summed up so succinctly in one sentence what I spend multiple paragraphs trying to get across.

    Pretty much no one does. That, too, should be clear.

    Why has this turned into something about racer ex? He has nothing to do with anything that isn't related to what he can do.

    You obviously...

    Thanks for the correction. 33 is closer to 35 than 32. But it's not 35. And it's certainly not anywhere close to 40.

    Yes, Boardman was on a road bike (though it was on a velodrome) Sorta the...

    Then what ARE you going on about with regards to racer ex?

    It's like you're not even reading the thread when you make your replies.

    And let me just reiterate where this tangent came from.

    I said there is a huge difference between riding at 35 and riding at 40 mph. Which there is. Anyone can go out and try to do it.
