Our Sat morning group ride had a guest domestic pro. There were only six of us and he was a very nice guy. There's really nothing funnier than trying to have a conversation with a guys who's barely breathing while you're at 90% MHR.

Yeah, back in Texas we had a higher level MTB rider ride with us on our Saturday morning MTB road/gravel road ride.

He blew us all away regularly without breaking a sweat (figuratively)

He would be stretching and riding with no hands at times when most of the rest of us where huffing and puffing.

Bobby J was around in december and I got to hang on his wheel for a little while(while riding over my tongue). He really looked like he was coasting uphill while the rest of us were putting out a good effort

There's a cure for that, you know...having a conversetion at a high heartrate?
Try singing when you're riding. Just make sure there's no other cyclists around, they'll laugh. I ran into a racer who was drafting me while I was singing about banana's and cocaine.

Fast Freddie came to our team camp at the beginning of the year. He made a joke that we were going to do a tempo ride together (ie his tempo). Oh boy. I ended up sitting on his wheel for a few minutes before we rotated riders and then got to pull up front. oh man. what a workout.

Ex teammate Andy Guptil (Colavita) rode with us a few times last summer. One time in particular, I was drilling it uphill as hard as I could, and he pulls up next to me looking like he's on a recovery ride, and says nonchalantly "You're the fastest cat4 I've ever seen." lol

No, no, no.... Start talking in a country accent. Like if you catch up to a break-away say something lik "Boy, yews is dumber den a pig takin a **** on a Wednesday, in't cha?" Or when passing someone at a good speed, casually say "Howdy!".

And if all else fails, just recite Ivan Drago lines.
