NO doubt they are way more expensive (the Zipp 404 bike wheels are abut $2K for the set).

Yeah, a Belgian womens' CX competitor. This has been making the rounds in the online cycling community. She claimed it was a friends bike and the team coach handed it to her accidentally. Oh yeah,...

I need to watch this again.

And a bit off topic, I am running some really cool loaner wheels while mine are getting serviced. Carbon isn't just for cars anymore.

I can't bear the thought anymore of going 37 miles in a car at once, unless I'm hauling my bicycle to a ride or starting a road trip to an auto race. :)

I will be driving 900 miles to CO this...

I almost never watch races live anymore, or anything else for that matter. For the very reasons you stated.

When it's warm I mostly pace about 16-17 MPH. I've done 35 mile rides at 18-19 MPH in a group with a paceline. In the winter months when it's colder I slow down a bit to 14-16 MPH pace. My average...

Right, but I didn't ride every day (227 days), so my average ride distance worked out to 36.5 miles. I'm 57 but everything seems OK. I can see riding regularly until I can't get on a bike.

I still think there is a big difference. Le Mans race car engines run flat out for 4, 6, 12, 24 hours at a time. That's what I'm talking about. The whole package has to endure for longer periods at a...

Yes, but F1's races run less distance than LMP1's very shortest races. Le Mans "sprint" races go 50% longer than F1 races. It's an apples and oranges comparison. F1 cars are higher performance and...

Agree. All you heard was tire and wind noise. I know someone who worked corner safety and said the Audi diesels freaked him out with the way they would sneak up coming around his corner.

Audi was one of the most popular brands in ALMS, second only to Corvette. They had a huge contingent of loyal fans. The marketing aspect was clearly important to them as well. You couldn't look...

It was known to be a fake entry from the beginning, to manipulate rules for how many lumps are allowed for the season.

I can understand getting rid of a loved car. I'm still not over my M3 and that's been gone since '08. Last month we traded in one of our WRX STIs and got a 2015 loaded Forester 2.5i Touring. We got a...
