    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?

    I haven't heard that before, but I would assume if someone on a bike is breathing making that sort of noise then one of two things are happening: 1.) they're actually asleep; 2.) they have some sort of obstruction in the airway, either a bug got jammed in there, or it could be the way their mouth is made with a low and thick soft palate which will narrow the airway, or they may be overweight with some excess neck tissue restricting breathing which would allow them to snore while asleep too...hopefully by the time they went to bed the ones with the bug stuck in their throats would have taken care of the situation.
