    Gary,

    << Next season's a new deal, come in ripped or die :) >>

    Wow, between you, me and Liz, I guess you and I die, cause Liz will be the only one of the 3 that is ripped :-)

    We love to mtb race. We use the road bikes to train but it is no where as much fun as the mt bikes. Western Maryland and West Virginia were made to bike.

    Just trying to stay in front of the wife 4 back in the Discovery Jersey. The http://www.skiwisp.com/ has a Wed night mtb race series every other week that is a hoot.

    I've been trying to knock off a century (100 mile ride) one day a week, with the other days being hill climbs, touring, or whimpering on the couch about my sore legs.

    The way I keep road bike rides interesting is to pick a different route each time to keep the monotony to a minimum.

    I commute to work 3 or 4 days a week (30 mile round trip), which helps the late winter weight come off.

    Every rotation of the pedal is another turn next year.

    Naaaaah. You'd only be nerds if you calculated the mechanical advantage of your crank arms, the amount of horsepower you are generating, how many kilowatt hrs you've "burned" (and what that would cost from your local power company), the relative time&space differences between you on your bike and a stationary frame, and then started to translate the units between english and metric just for fun (like translating between watts and BTUs..except for the seconds, of course... trying to convert that into different units would just be silly...)

    (Um, you don\'t do that, right????)

    Wicked shots there Dranow!

    Liz, when you climb...Big Chainring :twisted: just joking!

    Re: the under 17 pound super bike, a buddy of mine (same age as me) in California just bought that bike (for a lot more). He uses it in ITU races. I'll have to sneak a ride on it when he come to Brampton (near me) for a race.

    I bet your next bike will be a Cervelo P3C, I can see it.

    BTW, nobody wants to hear about "baby fat" until it gone! :P Keep it up, Flying Dranows

    mmm...subway. Eat Frrrrreash!

    Hi, New to forum.Left knee reconstruction 30yrs. ago. Have done daily rehab for 30yrs.. Reconstructions again 91',97'. Left knee 3x the size of right knee (bone mass from bone on bone for 30yrs.). Still racing but in past yrs. could not see enough gates to improve. Have always gotten slower as season progresses. Purchased skiers edge worldcup with slope simulator in Feb.06'. Have worked out on machine everyday since purchase. Wt. 150,Ht 5'8", #5 setting on foot pads, slope pins removed, poles held out front horizonal, 20 turns on back of slope simulator(as if I have lost balance on tails) 120 turns on front (as if I am skiing correctly). I am trying to make good sprinting turns not riding machine. Currently skiing 164,9s rossi. ski says 14m. hoping to be able to handle a real GS ski next year. If this works you can watch my handicaps 06'-07'.

    Gary,

    I've been experimenting using the WC trainer in an aerobic mode. Basically I get on a start making turns at just below my lactate threshold (150 bpm for me). So far my best is 40 minutes and 3200 turns. I'm hoping to get to an hour, but it is mentally tough to do so. BTW, about every 5 minutes, I do a burst of 100 turns touch to touch, and then go back to aerobic turns. Additionally, about every 10 minutes, I'll also do 100 turns in a tuck.

    I don't know if this work will translate to results, but at least mentally it is helping me. BTW, I've just about closed the SL gap on Kruse (it was 4 seconds a run at the start of the year, it is now down to a couple of tenths). Hoping I slide right on by this year.

    Bogie
