    Not to get into the low-carb diet thing, but you really only need carbs when you need carbs. If you calculate the calories required for a 50 mile ride, it doesn't require much, if any, carb loading,...

    I used to wonder why my evening rides were so much faster than rides first thing in the morning, even though I should be more fresh. It boils down to tension. I've noticed this with other activities...

    Thoughts after ten days? Contador can climb a cat 1 faster with a broken leg than I will ever climb, even if I had the next 100 years to do nothing but train 7 days a week.

    Sagan will eventually have to learn to be patient and not do the work so others can take advantage. Not to take anything away from galloping Tony G, that attack was brilliant.

    And then Contador is out, Nibali dominates the 1st big mountain stage and the gc race seems like it might be over just as quickly as it started. Maybe too interesting too early.

    Nothing wrong with a track bike for on the road training just as long as you have access to a geared bike or trainer for recovery rides.

    And a few barbed-wheel chariots pulled by angry Andalusian horses thrown into the sprint finishes.

    Seemed to me that Van Avermaet was trying to slow Sagan down on the last couple of pulls. Sagan might have stayed off the front if he had just kept going on his own. But yes, it makes no sense to...

    I prefer Kirby/Kelley as well and have never found Sean Kelley difficult to understand.

    Liggett/Sherwin are enjoyable for the one race a year, but the tour tends to be more spectacle and soap...

    I'm not a big fan of the revolving filler, err coverage. Phil, Paul and some occasional Bob is plenty. Christian, with that thick Chicago accent, is just too hard to understand. Jens Voigt was great,...

    Andy crashed, again. I don't think the Schlecks' problems are physical. Trek didn't them any favors by not sitting them out. A dose of reality and then having them do the Vuelta (with a lot less...

    Yes, doesn't matter what body type you are, more protein than you really need will just go to fat or stress your liver/kidneys and have the opposite effect from what you want. If you want to bulk up,...

    And now king of the mountains. Another "old" Trek guy came within a 100 meters of taking the win. Time might have run out already for the Schlecks, but I think Jens could go for another year or two...

    In spite of some notable old guys, they actually have a wealth of really good young riders. In fact they will have both the oldest (42) and youngest (20) rider in the tour this year.

    I think the course favors Contador, and he also seems to be in the best form. But wouldn't count out Nibali, or even Rodríguez in spite of the recent injuries.

    The Experts Panel decided the blood passport showed abnormalities from March 2011 until August 2011, but the rider was notified in June 2013. Why not notify the rider in September 2011? So yes, they...
