The entry on Feb 26 is very interesting, and demonstrates him to be a noble person. Good luck to him in his charitable endeavours.
Anyone know what DHEA is and does for a bike rider? My layman's knowledge of physiology tells me its the 'feel-good' hormone (governing anabolicism, recovery etc) and is the opposite to cortisol. That right? Wasn't this the same thing Tyler was allegedly positive for?
Feb 15 entry is pretty amazing example of pure natural talent on the bike. 3 months training, incorrect clothing, tiny amount of fuel, loss of one contact lens then the other and then arriving solo. Class.
I'm sorry but there is nothing impressive about this at all. So what he won a race at altitude and only been cycling a while fine, but he was already living at altitiude and was very decent marathon runner, hardly the average guy off a street in the UK.
As for giving up well he's f**ked anyway, 33 by the time he could come back and he was hardly a big name anyway.
Unfortunalty this type of story happens all to often, its just they don't blog about how great they are.
