    How to improve the run?

    This silent, unspoken partnership that I love with running or riding (seems to be mostly running). There have been a few events where I have hugged complete strangers after crossing the finish line because we both know that we couldn't have achieved what we did without each other.

    What lifetime do wheels get?

    Assuming you wheel has then, if you can’t see the holes then they are worn out. They don’t go the whole way through, like wear indicators on tyres

    What lifetime do wheels get?

    They usually have little wear indicators drilled into them. Bontrager have just started a 2 year crash replacement deal with a heavily discounted replacement policy after the 2 years

    Jan Fredeno - Training

    Was listening to that on the way to work. Wasn't it Armstrong saying that he did the majority of his training just below lactate threshold?

    Bike Lights

    Bontrager lights have got a lot better and their warranty is pretty good.

    Creating Value

    I think it depends on the sponsor as to how you can add value. Find out the sponsors objectives from the sponsorship and target that. But you can create a brand which can attract sponsors. Look at Phil Gaimon, the Lama from here and DC Rainmaker. Consistent delivery of quality content with a common theme will build an audience and familiarity which will ultimately build trust which sponsors will be happy to leverage. But you MUST be consistent, content is King.

    What training did you do today...

    Tradition dictates that lunch at Bright Brewery is the final activity of the trip before the drive home.

    What training did you do today...

    3 days in the Vic Alps. 316kms with about 5,800m vert. Buffalo, Hotham, Back of Falls and Tawonga ticked off with many beers and cokes consumed. Learnt all about the perils of dehydration the hard way

    Vertical Oscillation - what's going on?!

    I suggest you oscillate less vertically to reduce your vertical oscillation.

    Aus Road Nationals Start Tonight

    Neither of them were in any conditions to ride the wheels of anyone. All they would do if they tried, would be provide the perfect lead out and allow the other guy the opportunity to make just one hard effort. The only way I see things going different is if they both continued on a bit further before playing games, but you could see they were both pretty spent.

    Is drafting cheating or other?

    It's cheating when you do it. It's part of the game when I do it. Simple.

    Aus Road Nationals Start Tonight

    "They" always say you need to be prepared to lose a race in order to win. Unfortunately they were both prepared to lose and in the end they both did. Whichever one of them did the work at that point in the race was very unlikely to win. Think about how their legs must have been feeling at that point. A sustained effort would have robbed them of any kick.

    How good is Gigante??? She rides in our bunch regularly and is super strong. A mate just posted a pic on IG if we on my wheel, therefore I am claiming complete credit for her win.
