    Rasmussen doped?

    But Lance had Dr. Ferrari, human F1 Program engineering. Nowdays, no freakin way anyone can associate to much with the smart guys...

    SO what, with DOPING?

    Its that attitude that keeps the problem such a secret. Its like murder or beating your wife, its unspeakable. If the attitude of the USADA was more liberal, they could end it by taking people and paying them for info, and not punishing them. Instead its USADA vs Gansta USA. Such a...

    Cat 1/2 doping

    I have a teamate thats older, and I just cannot see him doing that ****. I got beat last year in a race by a couple 50+ guys. I'm 18... They still have the endurance, and field sprinting is won by experience. If there is a drug culture in masters, I would laugh!! I think if you get beat down...

    SO what, with DOPING?

    Yes, Gregor mentions what Ti-Man wrote a while back. Everyone's body responds differently to drugs. Some gain massive power output from steroids, some just gain waterweight and a bad temper. EPO is great for some, for others, they already have great blood levels. Give people a chance, dont...

    SO what, with DOPING?

    Nascar is more even now than it was many years ago. Richard Petty, Dale Earnhardt SR, Gordon?? Cycling is more even then it ever was before as well You point is that everyone is so strong it comes to team tactics, not rider individuality. On a final climb, how many teamates of the GC riders...

    TT's arn't worth upgrade points either because they are bogus.

    300 Watts FTP will get me....

    TT'ing isnt the race of truth anymore. Its a competition of who can cheat more with ultra expensive wheels and aero frames. Only at the pro/ 1 level is a TT a legitimate contest... BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOORRRRRRRRRRRRING

    300 Watts FTP will get me....

    The climbing potential for a 65 lb rider with a 300 watt FTP would be awsome. Thats like a 6 or 7 year old kid being able to run a marathon in sub 2:25... Could you imagine a little kid riding a 40K in 55 minutes? I bet they are out there, mabe just sitting at home playing videogames instead...

    300 Watts FTP will get me....

    If the human weighed 65 pounds at 60 inches tall and could somehow manage to muster 300 watts for a sustainable power output... the conditions were flat with no wind influence... The bicycle described weighed 16 pounds and was of triatholon or TT bike type aerodynamics...That would be a time of...

    Cheater's Justice for Vino!

    It doesnt matter, they are all on drugs and lots of them, and probably gene therapy as well. You people are out of touch with reality. Operation Puerto was about public publicity, not "catching cheaters." Anyone who's smart enough to run the biggest sporting event in the world, from a...

    could i have a future in this sport?

    The wattage to do 21mph on a normal flat to rolling road with neutral wind is about cat. 3/4 or 5 fitness level depending on terrain and your position on the bicycle. Typical cat. 1 riders can hold 30 mph for a 90 minute crit going around corners. Pros can hold 30+ for 4-6 hours. Typical winning...

    could i have a future in this sport?

    Depends on where you live and how motivated you are. If you live in an area where you cant compete in a sanctioned race at least twice a week, you can forget about making it to cat. 1 or 2 in the next couple years. You cant possibly know a certain "potential" without going into a lab and...

    My experince with drugs and blood doping

    Most of these guys probably did it their whole careers. The WADA rules state they can only prosecute on the last 8 years. Cyclingnews.com sort of, suggested that.

    Tour of California...should it go ProTour?

    Its not fair to Div II, III teams. The ProTour is not all about ability, but connections and $$ as well. Look at Tinkoff Credit Systems. They have all the ability buy no ProTour License. What do you say to a team like Toyota United who have riders capable of winning stages, but may be excluded...

    Cycling -- dead for me

    Its not a matter of whether or not these cyclists are on drugs, its a matter of whether or not they are being prosecuted fairly. You cant just plant evidence in a murder trial, just like the LNND Lab cannot use unfair, botched testing protocol. There needs to be no resonable doubt, which there...

    how much training hours per week?

    :) Most coaches are frauds. I do think though, she shouldnt just give up on cycling, the training weeks she's managing to complete is the result of structured training. I girl cant just make it through 400km every week without some good advice. However, you dont need to pay someone to tell you...

    Threshold

    Whoa, mabe if Lance is sitting completely upright on his road bike, mabe not even then! I know Armstrong has ridden rolling Time Trials at over 33 mph(2002 TdF) and his watts were a little higher to, like 460ish. I think thats more like the average speed in a mountain TT!!

    how much training hours per week?

    To reverborate on that, 85% would be threshold training, not aerobic capacity. Starting out with threshold intervals, 5 minutes is a good length repeated about 4-5 times. This ensures a gradual weaning into it. But it sounds like she's already doing a lot of that. I think she needs to focus on...
