They just started cycling and only bought the bikes a couple if weeks before. The only reson they did the race was explained in the episodes prior.

If you win a crit after a couple of months of cycling you would be cheering as well.
Also some of the people they beat were

I love how some people criticize something they didnt bother to watch.

How does this sort of shit happen? You'd think if you're getting paid to work on bikes you're not gonna be terrible at it...

I took my bike to one of the shops in my town after it got wrecked in a car crash and just told them to do whatever they needed to since the other person's insurance was paying for it anyway.

One of the items they charged on the receipt was just a general "tune up charge" so I figured after picking up the bike it'd be good to go, but nooooo. Seat wasn't properly bolted down, handlebars weren't properly connected to the stem, front brakes were so tight they rubbed, and back brakes were so loose they didn't contact at all. All stuff that took me a couple minutes at most to rectify, and it wasn't really my money, but wtf? Why charge someone for a "tune up" if you do even set it up before giving the bike back?

/BRT/: Bike Racing and Training

'Race Season is Coming' Edition
(and women racers in full kit with it)

Previous thread (>>1026641) is on auto-sage.

Most of you should be all the way through Base by now and Building towards your Peak weeks. Post your progress, gentlemen!

Reminder: Post power in watts-per-kilogram, not just watts.

If you're a poorfag and need basic training materials, here's a link to a .pdf copy of the previous edition of The Cyclists Training Bible:

>>1051582
training with no carbs at a slow pace is like distilled endurance riding in theory

you are building up tons of ketones and aerobic mitochondria whilst doing it which is the point

it seems crazy though, I read stories of people riding 100 miles in keto or running a ultramarathon in keto

I'm going to try the over/under approach this build of 4 days keto Z2 riding then carb up like crazy and do a day of VO2max interval and repeat for a couple months
>>
>>1051585
I feel like for a racing scenario, this is really stupid. Sure, you CAN ride 100 miles keto or whatever, but you probably won't be very fast.

There are no pro keto riders. Vegans, yes (and no vegans in the world tour I assume), but not keto.

Carbs are just too good as pre, post and during race food.
>>
>>1051585
Here's my problem with the idea, though: You couldn't operate above Zone 2 intensity that way. The higher the intensity, the greater the glycogen-to-fat ratio you're using. If for instance you tried to ride for an extended period even in just Tempo, I'd expect that after, say, 20 minutes, you'd not only completely bonk, but you might just pass out, your blood sugar so low you wouldn't even be able to stay conscious. That couldn't be healthy for you. At the very best you might be able to do something as extreme as this during pre-Base, or early Base, but not beyond that point.

This is all just my not-so-scientific opinion based on experience and my own sensibilities. If you want to post articles or research papers from credible sources (not just some guy riding his bike) explaining that this works, won't hurt you, is beneficial, and overall isn't just the ravings of some madman on a bike, I'll read them, but my own experiences of getting down to race weight by limiting carbs during Base, as I've described in an earlier comment, show me that if I went to the extreme you're describing, I'd probably be getting passed by grannies on adult trikes and feeling like total crap afterwards. Without data from studies done by very credible sources, I wouldn't take a chance of fucking up an entire race season because I was experimenting with some highly questionable training methods.
>>
>>1051591
The faster/harder you go, the more you need carbs, plain and simple. I'd challenge anyone on keto to go do 40 minutes at Threshold. They'd lose.

Melbourne

First is a B class
Built by Commonwealth Engineering Corporation (comeng) in Dandenong in the late 1980s/early 1990s
Second is a W5 or W6 class tram, the last of the mighty W class trams built in the 1950s by the Melbourne Metropolitan Tramways Board at the Preston depot. The MMTB was a completely in house vertically integrated setup, it designed, built, operated, and maintained its rolling stock.
W class trams were the exclusive rolling stock in Melbourne from the 1920s to the Z class entering service in the 1970s, and continued in revenue service right into the 1990s.
Today a small batch still operate on the City Circle route, and three are leased to a private operator that has renovated them into restaurants that operate through the most scenic routes

Depends on what section of East Colfax you want to get to. If you want to get to Fitzsimmons, home of U of C Medical center, Children's Hospital, and the new VA hospital, then you could take the A line and transfer to the recently opened R line. For the rest of Colfax, there's service via the #15 bus, commonly known as the Zoo Bus.

There's hundreds of stations and train stops in my country which have no personnel at all. Pic related is one example. It's slightly unusual because it's one one of the most-used railway lines in all of Germany, connecting the Rhein-Ruhr area with Hannover and then Berlin. I've never seen any staff there.
It might not be depressing because of its cool geographical location, but it is one of the most retarded constructions ever built.

Virgin America was not first to offer some of the services that other airlines got rid of or started charging for. They are also not a budget airline.

Now they are going to cease to exist. Alaska might integrate some of Virgin's services into its expanded operations though. And despite their noncommittal language, Alaska will almost certainly ditch all of Virgin's A320s (most are leased anyway) and A320 orders (including the neo) and leverage it to get discounts on addition 737 MAXs.

Somewhere on the other side of the globe, we are melting Edition.

Post your rides, post photos of riding, tell us about the ride. Even trainer rides are allowed!

I'll start off with a cautionary tale. I've always ridden with just one spare tube (aside from all day affairs) with the reasoning that if I had more flats then I'd just patch them as I went.

What this did not anticipate was a grass patch FULL of fucking goatheads, which ruined both of my tubes utterly and completely.

So yeah always carry two spares folks.

Went up to the hills for the first time in a few weeks. Times up were ok considering being out of practice, but got stuck behind a car coming back down. I wouldn't have minded so much if the L-plater hadn't pulled in front of me RIGHT at the start of the descent and proceed to drive it agonisingly slowly.

Coming back was good though, wind just about perfect.

Did my first century of the year. It was 20 F when I started, but above freezing by the time I finished. Gained (and lost) ~3300 feet and enjoyed a 15-20 mph tailwind for most of the return trip.

I did it with my slicks and kind of regret it. Sure, the riding was easier, but I had to change my route a couple times after finding that quiet roads above 2500 feet are still covered with ice. The lower roads were pretty nice though, just a lot of sand on the edges.

I got tanlines from the ski goggles I wore. They're pretty silly - dark arcs around my cheekbones. It's not warm enough to lose my balaclava yet, but exposing some of my face feels nice, especially on ascents.
