He and his pals came to beat up on us in a local race last year but I've got a podium pic and he's not on it, must have run out of food? Should had the bag on I guess!

I'm just joking around. ...

Agree with this. I don't know about planning an entire ride around a KOM effort, but even if so I don't see how that's a bad thing if that's what you're in to. For sure anything of "value" as far...

Talent is absolutely real. You can watch 6 year olds play soccer and see very clearly that even at that age, some kids have it and some don't. Basic coordination, speed, etc.

I'm a 1, but sadly the free socks and gels I get for being such a badass have yet to translate into mortgage payments. Cat 1 is not pro. Pro in the US is barely pro depending on your definition.

My experience, 5000s aren't overinflating like the 4000s did. 4000 28mm was massive mounted (never measured, eyeball) compared to the 5000.
