Team GB is on some next-level training program for sure.

I guess the major questions are:

- Did Team GB sandbag (hold back) for 4 years?, or
- Did they truly become faster since the last round of World Cups and World Championship?


Team GB training program is like 7 mysteries of the world :lol:

Someone should spy on them and find about this mystery

Their funding from UK Sport is directly proportional to them hitting their medal targets at the Olympics therefore they fully concentrate all their resources on that to the detriment of everything else.

taras0000 08-16-16 06:21 PM

I don't necessarily think that GB have been sandbagging. What may have been going on is that they've intentionally structured their seasons to work around the WC season.

Training is not a steady progression, but a series of "mini-peaks" that lead to a final Peak Event. It could be that they have intentionally scheduled their training programs so that the valleys in between the peaks are coinciding with major events. They are still progressing throughout the duration on the program, but essentially are doing just enough to qualify for the major events, and keeping their A Game to themselves to keep everyone else in the dark.

I think you may be right. There was talk of them "training-through" the World Championships leading up to London.

With that being said, I would imagine that it would suck to be fast enough to win a World Championship, but your coach have you so deep in a hole that you can't come out of it to collect it...then post winning times in training.

10 dollar carbon frames!!!!
road frame shipping fee is 20 dollars

This will be a perfect frame for indoor training!!
If the frame cracks, it wouldn't be a problem because it's only 10 bucks lol
And who is going to use a 10dollar frame for outdoor training.

Can someone get this for me?(I will send you the money by PayPal)
because they only ship to US.....
I am currently in South Korea and going to LA in a week.

that looks like a scam. Sell something at an insane price, say it takes 6 weeks to arrive, by the time the first buyers get fed up waiting you're gone with the money.

There's absolutely no way they can make those for that price. Carbon fiber is essentially a commodity, and it isn't cheap.

I definitely agree with you but....

so I wouldn't worry about my money.

Also it's only 30dollars. So I would give it a shot
and if I don't receive the frame, I could contact eBay or PayPal :thumb:

Flatballer 08-17-16 10:47 AM

Yeah, I thought about that too. It is Paypal and eBay, so you're pretty much covered. It's certainly tempting, because, like you said, it's only $30. Hell, I'd get the aero road and track bikes for $60 and call it a day.

I'm just catching up on reading and see that your seller link returns the message "no longer a registered user." And perhaps more worrisome, recent sales have included the intriguingly titled "New Wind-up Toys Dancing robot chain dance robot clockwork toy" and "Fashion Necklaces Unisex's Men Stainless Steel Cross Pendant Necklace Chain."

If it shows up, wear a helmet....

That's a great article...but they fail to mention that the bike was not very stiff. One rider of that bike mentioned that, "It was like riding a wet noodle."

Official UCI video on checking road bikes according to the rule book. Not quite sure exactly how much it differs in comparison to track bikes but I'm positive it can help out a few people, or at least be of interest to some :D
