    I do know one of my ride buddies is about 160 and I weight around 122. When I'm rolling 200ish watts and 20-21 mph, he is easily rolling 260-280 watts. When he is rolling 200w its more like 17-18...

    I would say most keep riding. I can say this based on the fact that if there's actually a prize, others will use every advantage they can get to win and if that means not stopping then so be it. 90...

    if you do go and think you will just be surviving, use it as an opportunity to work on seeing how much of the race that you can ride without pedaling/conserving energy

    I do quads, calves, hamstrings, muscles in the butt (not sure what they're called lol) both before and after rides. Also try to use the foam roller or at least the stick every day (every other day at...

    For me it depends on what kind of intervals I am doing. Being able to crack out a max 5 minute number in the first 1/3 of the race probably won't do anything but waste energy. However being able to...

    Best way to do it is go to national level races and ride well, preferably top 10-20. Obviously the better your results the less you need. Then start contacting different teams. It helps to start with...

    2-1 was about 10-11 months, just a little over one full Florida season, just a little longer than it took me to go from 3-2 but way shorter than 4-3 and 5-4 cause I raced almost every opportunity I...

    Depends a lot on course as well as whether you're fresh or not for it (a lot of the promoters like to do TT's after road races at least around here in local races).

    +1, I would change the 100 minute day at 90% down to maybe 2x60 min at tempo (more like 83-87%). Also instead of 3x20 at 90-95, why not do 2x40 at 87-93% (or SST)?

    I would like to hear what your...

    I think a lot of this depends on where you are from as well. Certain states (ahem Florida) have a lot of category inflation and you see guys who are in p1/2 races who are fat and out of shape or...
