Interesting. So is an IV really required, or can you do it just by drinking exactly enough? I hear Robic had a ridiculously low number of hours off-bike. Too few for an IV, I'd think. I suppose you could be on an IV while sleeping. Does Dave have an MD this year?

Gotta agree with that. I find Kish less exciting though, mostly because he's already done so many.
