    I quite like big Tex. Obvs I thought he was a douche but now I kind of love just how much of a douche he is.

    Still would never wear livestrong bands.

    Speaking of which, you know I said my old man was getting a Sky?British cycling Dogma? My mum said he went out on it in full Sky kit.

    He used to rock a heavy Astana kit back in 2008 and a Gerolsteiner before that. Sort of love it.

    Yep truthfully I don't go out half as much as I daydream about. its the dark nights that have shut me down and limited time from having kids.

    Hehe.. That's ace... Living the dream!! Which Sky rider do you think he was dreaming to be when he put the hammer down?

    In related Team Sky cringe moment, last month in Gran Canaria my dad came back from the shops wearing his Sky jersey with casual shorts and sandals... I didn't let it happen twice.

    Ha ha, I like to think Henao Jr but truth be told I think he only knows Wiggins...

    Yeah etiquette is funny but at least a) it's been developed in the brutal headwinds and rain of Northern Europe b) it's at least partially acknowledged and c) doesn't matter what you're wearing when your legs/heart are screaming at you to stop!

    This year I'm amazed at how many low cat racers are doing a Froome and staring at their stems.

    No lie, I spoke to a guy in a training crit who told me that he was confused because he wasn't hitting his numbers. It's a 40 minute hammer-fest ffs not a 3 week Grand Tour. I think you'll have enough left in the tank for work tomorrow, mate.

    I'm on there, but it's mostly running at the moment. Once the weather gets better I'll head out on the bike a bit more.

    There's a few sportives take place in the Peak District each year, I might have a go at a couple this year. I also fancy doing the dunwich dynamo at some point.
    Shout going out to Potsy. Your Mum looks like she's made out of pipe cleaners. Get her off the wizz.

    haha i've actually found when cycling up the long painful hills just staring down at your legs can be a good distraction from the fixed agonizing tease of that which you're trying to reach

    Have you cycled back to your bit after a night on the tiles? I remember you asked about locking your bike up once. Actress, maybe? Which was on an icy November night. Wouldn't surprise me if you'd walked it, come to think of it. But fuck me, that's a dreary bike ride if ever there was one.

    NO! Look at where you're going. As soon as you look down you're fucked.

    yeah man, it was pissing it down, i sobered up in like 10minutes and got leg cramp on the way home, fucking sucked.

    i did it again in summer tho on a sunday and the train runs hourly and I'd just missed the previous one but then managed to get home before the next one would have even left the station, i was less drunk that time though.

    I'm not sure about that, I've experimented with a few ways, tried focusing on the top, setting targets along the way e.g.a lamppost 50m away, then the next... etc, and fixing my gaze on the road a few meters ahead and had most success with the last one. Helps to achieve that state of "zen" where you stop thinking about how much pain you're in completely, ha.

    My favorite way is just to get out of the saddle and nail it for a bit when you start to struggle though (head down!!!), that way it seems like you're actually resting when you settle back down at the same pace as before.
    What a ridiculous clusterfuck of totally uncool jokers.
