    Why? I think that's fairly obvious. So then, exactly why is offering up one potential solution to a problem a bad thing? And why was it necessary to do the unprovoked hate routine just because they...

    Blue Mountain 200K?

    Anyways, do you need the seat bag? And the handlebar bag? Seems like overkill for a 200K. You can lose a little more weight, and more importantly, (probably) gain some aero...

    At one point on last years Fleche you seemed to have a bad patch due to insufficient eating. You never seemed particularly sleepy, though. Were you just good at bluffing?
