On the SFB 'man down' thread I posed this question:
Can any medics comment on the nature of a heart attack in someone who is a regular cyclist and therefore likely to be pretty fit? I think it would be a useful discussion here and help raise awareness of potential heart conditions that fitness won't prevent but could help reduce the impact of.
And quite a few people have suggested we start a new thread so here it is. I know that the risk of heart attack can be related to many factors other than just life style, but I don't know any more than that and there is loads more I don't know that other people clearly did.
