LOL No offense, you people are hard core and all, but don't you have other stuff? I mean with a job and a wife and a kid there is no chance I could train enough to ride those sorts of miles let alone go do it.
I remember reading that Lance had a job, wife, and a kid as well ... He managed to ride quite a lot also.

*more down to earth example*

99% of all riders have full time jobs, kids, wife, and still find time to ride an accomplish their goals be it racing , double centuries, or just riding that weekly 50 mile group ride every Saturday.
