Re: 2016 TdF, Stage 7: L'Isle-Jourdain → Lac de Payolle (163
I'm hearing from my friends who are currently around the Tour that CheckMyPecs' "Upper-body training for cyclists" thread has made a big impression among the current cycling peloton. It has been talked a lot recently. Lots of riders have decided to train their upper body before the Tour which gives them better bike handling skills and better protection of their bones from fractures. It has also improved their peak aerobic performance, hence they're less tired during stages, which leads to better concentration and riders make less mistakes. This alltogether contribute to the fact that no one has crashed hard enough to force him to abandon the race so far. :surprised:Praying Mantis said:Withdrawals Stage 6:
198 of 198 riders remain in the race - for the first time in history at the start of stage 7.
