Honest question(s) 1. Why would Anderson & Husky be SO secretive about an injury (and I think an injury is involved here) 2. Why would Anderson & Husky risk making an injury worst by competing? Would it be because -as it happened in outdoors- ... more »

Great to see Bam Bam in such a great shape. Always a fun rider to watch.

What. An. Animal. There's like 20 riding lessons in that 1:26 video (which lasts... 20 seconds? in real time)

You don't win 9 championships at this level by *just* being quick. You need to add *smart* to the mix. I know it is impossible, but I'd love to see the guy race for many years to come.

That is correct. Road Cycling has been plagued by doping cases (probably more than any other sport), with all the biggest names been tainted by it at some stage in their careers. I mean, it has been an issue since the first Tour de France, the idiots ... more »

I know Craig Alexander, and I know how Ironmans work. If you re-read I've stated "there is no conclusive Scientific evidence". I did not say: - Training on Altitude never works - Everything is bullshit. - No new evidence ever is going to prove otherwise ... more »

You think only red blood cell counts come into account on athletic performance? There is a whole array of physiological processes that we're only beginning to understand (we know a LOT, but there's just a ton more to figure out). On aerobic exercises ... more »

There is no conclusive scientific evidence that training at high altitudes provides an advantage at sea level (training at altitude does provide an advantage when performing at altitude versus athletes training at sea level). You just won't be able to ... more »

Exactly. Tomac looks super confident and in control, but things can go south in the blink of an eye, and with the speed he is carrying that could spell disaster. I guess the press were just as much in awe as the rest of us with ET's final charge to actually ... more »

Been there. Dad (me) Anderson fan; Son #1: Kroc Fan, Son #2: Tomac fan. I was giving both kids a hard time on Moto 2, then THAT happened. Thank you Tomac for shaming me in front of my kids!

JA21 was focused in SX up to Las Vegas. He has had only 2 weeks worth of outdoors training. That showed last week and reared its head late on the motos yesterday. If he can keep improving we'll see a lot of action there. Couple more weeks and Husky and ... more »

Dakar is gone. It will be held in Peru entirely (sand!!) Youthstream is trying to get another south american race. If they get that Argentina might still be on. If not it is probably gone.
