    When I was fit headwinds were my friend, well at least as being competitive goes. My major stud moments were all riding into a headwind that was an absolute disaster for climbers.

    None of the above. First is can I catch their wheel.

    The only place I think of that is sort of like that is the Orange Line Bike path.

    It is not a good thing to play Rugby Saturday, drink at the reception and then show up at the start line for TT still trying to get rehydrated.

    Different years there are quite a few. Sylvere Maes, Fausto Coppi, Lousion Bobet and Felice Gimondi come to mind. At least 3 more from the very early days.
