what drivel

Postby 20/20 » Tue Nov 24, 2009 14:36 pm

I’m amazed at some of the rubbish written in this forum, it’s no wonder that triathlon where we need to excel in three sports (plus transition) has pushed the boundaries of training and sports development.

Can I suggest that you guys look at some of the excellent Tri focused sights for an insight into modern proven training methods, particularly cadence.

Youll be faster, smoother and more stylish and given what ive seen of club runs you could all do with cleaning your bikes more often. Losing the mud guards would be a step forward too.

Aces! If only I'd known!

While we're playing the generalisation game... Could you guys Tri (gerrit?) riding in a straight line some time?

yes ive heard this many times we cant ride in straight lines etc but its just not true. I rode in a rode race recently and the quality of bike handling was an eye opener. Ive never seen anything like it before!!!!

On the subject of the road race I did, (which I of course won) i noticed there was lots of "sitting in" and spinning of the gears. I reccomend a simple improvement stick it in a big gear and leave it there.

I won because the superior training available to triathletes allowed me to believe in myself and break away fro a solo win. Triathletes dont need to draft we can ride strongly for ourselves.

Yes - I seem to remember Spencer Smith setting the cycling scene on fire when he tried it.....

Not that I'm knocking him - he's caught me several times at IM distance races - after giving me a head start.

One of the by products of the superior training advances that triathletes have developed is our figures. Because we don’t need to spend days stooped over our handle bars and can train all areas of the body, we have better physiques and core strength.

This means we can achieve more from less cycling specific training and is something you could all benefit from.

Additionally our straighter backs more defined torso’s and more muscular build is more attractive to women and this is reflected in the numbers of chicks involved.

This is what happens when your cadence becomes too high (and why we stick to bikes):

Thats not a serious comment surely? sure there are some oddball characters but were inclusive and supportive. Attitude is important too and this is another area where cycling would be improved.

Sure we have elitist attitudes too but we do our bragging on the course not in a winter club run conducted at geriatric speed. What is the point of those really? long base conditioning? an outdated and dicreditied technique.
