    Why winter train so much?

    Why train during the winter? Good question. I can be moderately active in the winter and start trainning again in the spring and reach the same level as I did the previous year. Trainning in the winter gives that extra percent, the difference between 6th and 3rd, 30s quicker in a TT, ect...

    2008 Ftp?

    I am sure Absalon is over 6. I know Roland was well over 6 at his peak. The top women, particularly the small ones, are actually fairly close to the top men in watts per kilo. It goes to show you that watt per kilo isn't everything, absolute wattage is important.

    Things are looking bleak

    I agree with you on that, for most of the part. The late selection dates creates problems for many athletes. However the medal contenders know way in advance that they are going. For example Alex Wrubulski (who crashed really hard in road race BTW) and Premont knew early on that they were...

    Things are looking bleak

    Nothing is wrong with Clara's gold (did she get gold? I could swear that it was two bronze medals). Your previous statement implied that more than one canadian women had medaled. When to medal in womens road and TT events it took probably the best female athlete in Canadian history. Didn't...

    How far on 8 hours a week?

    I have to disagree with you. A race, even a crit, should far exceed your average daily load. If this isn't true then you are either racing in a category way to slow for you or you are trainning way to hard and to tired to race properly. If you are able to one full hour of FTP per day for the...

    How far on 8 hours a week?

    Did you also notice that Sam is the same guy who one the best hand made bike recently. Sold the bike for 13,000 to Lance Armstrong. I use to work and ride with Sam when he was doing the HPV thing. The crazy thing is Sam has a good engine but not a great one (he TTs at 43-45kph on regular TT...

    How fast is condition lost?

    Fast. Really, really fast. It is quite disturbing how quick you lose conditions. If you take a month off it will take some where around 3 months to get back where you were.
