I also like the news about the TT of the 2007 Tour going through the Tunnel between England and France. I bet Winter 2006 training will include a lot of sessions involving the new VCO2 Max techniques.

I'd actually like to try this out. Wouldn't this bike solve that problem recumbents face when trying to go uphill? shifting your weight back off the pedals making it harder to go uphill. Mind you you'd feel like you were a missile on decents.

I can't say i'd look forward to the 'presure' points around my guys.
