I just got back from the bathroom and saw the latest developments in this thread. Spooky synchronicity!

may i suggest that you address the message rather than your bizarre assumptions about a messenger…a person you never met, knew or communicated with. what a sad way to go through life just because some internet poster is not agreeable..

andy, my dear, please relax…i’d venture to call your posting (pls note i did not lavish you with the term you unjustly threw at benotti, though, by my reckoning, it would be more appropriate for you), yes, i’d venture to call your posting spineless. The reason ? You jab and run. you never stay around long enough to engage into a man-o-man exchange of opinions (and it is not about wasting testosterone !) . and yes, if you faced me on the street with such tactics it would not be pretty…i mean i'd want to hear the explanation.

Yes yes we know, you debunked the laws of physics. You're very clever indeed. Good for you.

I'm dying to hear more about your debunking of altitude training btw. When are you going to start a thread on that?

Something that I am interested in though is the effect of hip flexion on leg blood flow. I remember reading a paper once about speed skaters having a problem since the femoral artery gets "kinked" hence increasing leg vascular resistance. The AIS track cycling guys also told me once that the TT position tends to be less efficient overall (ie: sitting forward with greater hip extension) but is better for power production. So you would expect a trackie to be comfortable in that position, but I wonder how long it takes to become comfortable in a position that is more efficient (hence better for long ITTs) and furthermore, is the position which happens to be the most efficient energetically the same as the most aerodynamic? That is a potential trade off that might take more time to get right than just doing wind tunnel testing alone. So maybe it's not ALL just about position and Cda but the interaction with some other factors that could affect performance??

We started getting into it here: http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthr...t=18691&page=3 (referenced a bunch of studies you might enjoy).

Perhaps you'd like to clarify what your mate armchairclimber meant here:

Not LHTL, but actually training on steep mountains, at altitude, adds to Wiggins peak something or other.

Go.
