    Le Tour - Team Sky

    Froome was the better rider when wiggo won it. He’d be expecting the same treatment. Is this his last one?

    The Great Transitions Beer Mile! (Port Mac)

    Tooheys new seemed a popular choice. Understandable given the location. But what’s with Batman drinking cider?!

    Heart checks, stress test etc

    Without having any symptoms, really up to you and how much peace of mind you need. I had a stress echo done last year (33yo) and was probably the fittest I’d been. Pulled up lame in the pool one night, was like a switch was flicked and I didn’t know if I was going to make it to the end. I had been feeling pretty run down, but forced myself to go. Anyway over the next few days got tightness in the chest which over another week or so settled on the heart. Went to doc who diagnosed myocarditis and ordered rest - no problem as I struggled getting up stairs without being stuffed at the top. Lasted another couple of weeks, and found out had history in family of heart problems. Went back to doc who ordered stress echo due to lingering symptoms and family history. By the time the test came around I was much better, but fark me the test was hard. Unlike goughy, I had to run for as long as I could, which was really a hill sprint on treadmill. Then back on table and having to hold breath while coming down from absolute max heart rate. Horrible. Anyway, everything sinister was ruled out and myocarditis confirmed as far as possible. Took about 10 months for all symptoms to disappear. Haven’t gotten back into real training since April last year. Has made me hyper aware of any niggles. Moral of my text book above, check family history, there’s a lot of things that can be passed down esp heart related. Get checked if any doubts and listen to your body! If more tired than normal, maybe skip a session or two.

    Sagan worth every cent (point?) at the moment.

    Sky also had 3 or 4 in the top 10. They'll be able to limit any potential losses in the mountains. It's going to be tough

    SO.......???

    My ignorant, internet opinion is it costs fark all for IM to run a race in Asia. I imagine there would be a heap of money from the host city playing the tourism card to get the foreign cash. Doesn't work so well for Australia - too expensive to travel and holiday, even when you live here. Western money goes a long way in Asia. Locals complaining about disruptions? Repeat that down the barrel of my AK.

    Wireless headphones

    I totally forgot about the headphones than came with the iPhone. That's probably a good place to start....I do like spending money though.

    Wireless headphones

    The cost of the Bose is a bit scary. Do travel a bit so could be handy there, but wouldn't run with them I don't think. Have never run with music to date, don't imagine that will change. Thanks for the other tips, will look into. Still a couple of weeks away. Heading to nz for the snow so will use the tax back scheme. And stock up on (more) scotch

    Wireless headphones

    Looking through this thread, dayum it got sidetracked. Anyway, looking for some headphones when using the kickr. Thought noise cancelling would be best and wireless. But open t suggestions. The latest bose get great reviews, but don't know how sweat proof they'd be. What are people using?
