    Heavy breathing

    I've been noticing that many top riders seem to breathe real heavy when of the bike - almost sort of snoring. Any explaination for this, or is it just a coincidence?

    Aero difference between 46mm and 58mm Reynolds

    Hi! I was wondering how big the difference is between the AERO 46 and AERO 58? I ride in Denmark where the races are often decided in the cross winds. My biggest force as a cyclist is to sprint, so i'd like to go with the 46 tubular model (58 doesn't come in a tubular model) if the aero...

    Strength Training for Sprint Performance

    You are absolutely right that the lead out is very different from the finishing sprint. Training that will be part of my program. Sometimes during the season the team will be split up, and I will be the primary sprinter. I really want to make sure to put up a decent sprint in those instances :)

    Bill Black's HOP

    I would guess that HOP workouts are somewhat more specific to road racing than evenly paced intervals - but also that they might not give the same gains in FTP. So, what do you think the ratio between steady state intervals and HOP-type workouts should be throughout the base/build?
