You know what's weird?

There's been ZERO ****ing coverage of the fact that Madalyn Godby won the keirin at the Berlin World Cup. Nothing from USAC, news outlets, nuthin'. It was an amazing sprint...

Heh, yup, that's me.

Faster? It depends. I've done a bit of rough testing for me, personally, and it tests faster than riding in the drops. This is not the case for everybody. Not everybody needs...

Right?

As a bike racer, I've come to terms with disappointment a lot - being beaten by people who outclass the rest of the field; being beaten by full time athletes who just get to train more and...
