Have you cycled more than Alonso in the last month?
I remember reading an article about David Coulthard back in the day, describing training rides where he’d road ride up to the top of the mountains above Monaco, then swap to a mountain bike (that had been shuttled up by his coach) and ride down offroad.
Might be an uplift business idea in there somewhere. Well, for a sadist who loves climbing anyway 😉Posted 5 years agoplop_pantsMember
Before Leon Camier moved to Andora he often rode our tuesday night crits at Lydden motor racing circuit. He was quick. Good 2nd cat level. Nice memory of him patting me on the back when I won one night.Posted 4 years ago
If you are ever down Ashford, Kent way be sure to visit the Blue and White cafe on the A20, you can meet his mad mother who owns it (she’s great!). The cake, oh the cake!samuriMember
Don’t forget guys, these lads get paid many, many millions to be very fit indeed. If I was getting that sort of money out of season I’d be riding a lot too.
It’s a shame isn’t it? You could be the very best person in the world at writing audit reports. You could be a hundred times better than your nearest competitor. These audit reports would be things of beauty and taste. They would reduce the readers to tears and yet you’d still only earn £27654 a year and be expected to prop a desk up in Milton Keynes for your entire life.
But get lucky, be gifted with driving skills instead of audit report writing and you earn 20 million quid a year, live in Monte Carlo, ride your bike all day and get sucked of by a podium girl every night.Posted 4 years agomboySubscriber
Road riding seems very popular with the motor sportists. I know Button rides and I think quite a few of the motogp chaps do too.
Troy Bayliss is/was known to be a very competitive road rider, even when after he finished riding MotoGP. I’ve got it in my head (think I read an interview with him a couple of years ago) that he had a proper go at road racing after he quit racing motorbikes for a bit, and was doing quite well. Thing is, the fitness and physiology required to make someone a good F1 driver or MotoGP racer will naturally lend itself to being good on pedal power too. That and the inbuilt competitive nature of these guys!Posted 4 years ago
