When Sid Patterson was setting his 24 hour track records, he would have one can of beer per hour and nothing else.

Those would be Sid's records which have since been beaten right? Now you know one of the reasons.

I also know someone who used to race scratch at the Melbourne to Warrnambool in the 60s/70s who would start the race with a 500ml bidon of flat coke (thats coca cola before the jokes start). Thats a 265km race with 500ml of liquid - and THAT liquid is also a mild diuretic.

Anyone who tries to enhance their performance by taking legal drugs is an idiot. How can any witchdoctor potion, amino acid protein mega x factor y chromosone compound bonded to xray receptors replace a few more reps in the gym, a few more ks on the road or a bit of determination?

No pill or potion will replace hard work. If you think anything legal will help you improve your performance, youre an idiot. You dont deserve to be on a bike.

As for Protein powder its nothing more than dried egg. See a dietician, cost you less than powders and correct the problem, dont mask one.

Asthma is natures way of weeding out the weak, if you have it, you should stay at home. You lot would have been bred out if it wasnt for Ventolin. BTW, get a dose of Hookworm, that cures Asthma.

pssst.... your knuckles are dragging.........

You need to follow the Ferrari protocol and take IV Tequila to mask the beer. If it works, tell me your dosage; that's where I seem to have problems.

You can buy Hookworms now on the Net. They really work for you wheezers. The hookies supress the parts of your immune system that cause Asthma. Mum and dad live in your guts for 30 years and you **** out babies and you dont even know they are there.

http://www.asthmahookworm.com/ if you want to be a gun rider and overcome the handicap that is Asthma, then get some worms into you.

You can take all the supplements in the world but they wont be a replacement for hard work and determination. I bet most of you on them are not even 25 when it can be said that you finish growing naturally. Throw all that **** in the bin and eat and train and give your body a chance to develop its true potential before you spend your money on rubbish.

Determination is almost a lost art. Every sport in the world is looking for the magic pill, the replacement for hard work. Fairy dust as Dr. karl calls it, it doest exist. I bet some of you wear the "holographic balance aid wristbands" that channel energy.

If you want to be a good rider, ride. If your mates get up at 6 and do 100k, get up at 4 and do 200k. Ride to work, ride home, ride at night, ride 12 hours a day on the weekend, Get a job that allows you to ride more hours. Use your annual leave and sickies to ride. Ride on the rollers in front of the TV. Do more and heavier squats than your mates. If youre not riding 1500k a week youre not trying.

Work on what is between your ears. Actually ride until you fall off, dont pretend that you couldnt go a yard further. Ride through the feeling that your lungs will burst. Dont quit. Believe in yourself, not a product. Dont listen to your mates. You dont live in their body. Their pretend improvements wont be yours. Spend your money on a good diet, a good bed, good sleep, good massages.

Nancy Wake rode a fixed wheel bicycle during WW2 to deliver a message. She rode 360k in 24 hours through the French alps, fearing for her life, knowing that if she did not deliver the message, her Marquis friends would be murdered by the Gestapo. No food, no water, no gears. She knew she had been riding in her sleep as every so often she would wake as she fell onto the road or into a ditch. She was revived a couple of times with brandy by locals. The message got through.

Most of you pill, potion, gel lot couldnt ride that distance on the flat on a fixed wheel bike.

Thats the determination you need to have to be a great rider. If you dont have it, see a sports psychologist. The reason why one sprinter beats anther by an inch is in the mind not the body.

f*ck me, you're entertaining.
ever heard of quality over quantity?
how about overtraining syndromes?
there's plenty to be said for competing with determination and winning with "heart", but what you describe is just ludicrous training regimes that'll drive you into the ground with serious fatigue...
if your logic was valid then every GC contender would have trained for the tour by doing the giro, dauphine and suisse. ever noticed how no one did??
