    Ummm. I'm too busy waiting for the Lemond edited version of ProCycling to turn up at WH Smiths!

    No, really? I didn't know he was guest editing it. I liked the one in 1996 where Robert Millar guest edits his own retirement issue tribute Pro Cycling...was a very good way of doing the magazine...allowing a top rider in to give their expert views...IMO pros should be invited to more often by cycling mag owners...and it puts the rider under the spotlight too

    Dropped through my door this morning, looks very good from the quick flick I had through it. Going to have to join the pile of reading material on my desk though.

    winter is... really not that bad for you Brits.

    We just got 40cm (that's 16 inches) of snow over two days, it's -20 Celsius and snowing again. Riding to work takes a double dose of determination in the morning.

    You mean you are still riding to work in those conditions? :shock:

    Call me a bit of a softie but that does seem a tad cold. Wrapping up warm then?

    Christmassy though innit :wink:

    Oh, it's plenty Christmassy through a window with a mug of hot tea in your hands. In the traffic on the CX bike, it's quite another story. It's a rather particular type of self-punishment. All my messenger buddies are still working, so things could be worse. Hell, some guys are still riding their fixies in this stuff!

    I guess it's the reason Canadian road cycling stars have been rather scarce since Steve Bauer. I guess it's also the reason we make killer MTBers, though. Riding in fresh snow gets you to your target heart-rate in no time. When you get the winter blues, just remember that, unless you live in Antarctica, it could always be worse.
