The choice of the relatively new Shimano Blue cleats is interesting.

After a strenuous workout, top athletes and everyday exercisers regularly reach for energy bars, protein powders, or recovery drinks, thinking that these dietary supplements provide boosts that normal foods do not.

A new study, however, finds that -- when it comes to exercise recovery -- supplements are no better than fast food.

I'm only interested in studies that conclude chocolate milk is good for recovery, since that's my favorite regardless!

Haven't made it out there yet, I'd really like to though. A crit or two every day for a week sounds like a fantastic vacation!

You know who else would ignore queerpunk? Ryan Bayley. Loved his fast food. They even called him "The KFC Kid".

Would love to! Did look into the cost of an International UCI race licence so I could race whilst on holidays just to experiencing racing in other countries. Even Masters I'd be looking at an additional $435 for just 14 days plus and another extra $300 (if under 3 months) if North America! So as you can guess I just went on training rides instead... Thanks Cycling Australia!

crazy, I thought it was a lot here. Its about $120 for a full international license, plus an extra $25 for a track 'add on'. Im surprised by your cost, I thought it was a pretty universal price based on UCI with each governing body adding their overhead.


Speaking of dairy land, looks like 11 races this year, and I think Im going to head out for it. Only a 9hr drive from here and 11 days of crits sounds awesome. Just not sure what category to ride, if I sandbag the 4s or go up to 3 or even the 1/2s. Always hard to compare the local race scene to others.

Only if you are racing cat 5. One day licenses are limited to intro races.

For road, track and cyclo-cross events, riders may purchase a one-day racing license for $15 and be permitted to enter races open to men’s category 5 or women’s category 4.

Including club membership (a requirement but would only amount to around $40 of the total):

Masters 65+ -$200
Masters Under 65 - $282
Elite & U23 - $363
U19 - $265
U15 &U17 - $165
U13 and below $85

Race entries are still reasonable. Club race entries are around $10 - $20. Open races usually from $20 to over $100 for multi day races.

Wow. I think I'm going to link to cycling Australia the next time somebody throws a fit about $70 for a usac license. Not that I think usac does everything right, but licensing fees aren't one of my issues.

don't forget - they have to use wheels from the UCI approved list over there and lots of other hoop-jumping-through...
not all is peachy-keen

Shanaze Reade is back on the GB Track Team during their big buildup to the 2016 Olympics.

https://twitter.com/ShanazeReade/sta...68089786998784
Excited to join the GB track sprint team! BMX has been my life.. But I am now ready for a new challenge in Rio 2016!
This is interesting.

For those who aren't familiar, Reade is a BMX Superstar...but she tried the track a few years ago and did very well.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shanaz...e#Track_racing

Reade started track racing on 24 February 2007, her first ever competition on the velodrome was in the Manchester round of the 2006–2007 UCI Track Cycling World Cup Classics. She took second place with Anna Blyth in the Team Sprint in a time of 34.294 seconds. The Gold Medal winning Dutch team of Yvonne Hijgenaar and Willy Kanis' time was 33.966 seconds. Like Reade, Kanis is also a champion BMX racer. Reade and Blyth's qualifying time was the fastest of the event at 33.802 seconds.
A month later, on 29 March, Reade went on to take first place in Team Sprint at the UCI Track Cycling World Championships in Palma de Mallorca along with Victoria Pendleton. It was also the first ever Women's Team Sprint Gold Medal title in that event. Their winning time was 33.631 seconds. Reade was a last minute replacement for Anna Blyth, Reade's partner at her first track racing event a month prior.
Jamie Staff once commented that it's hard to get BMXers to leave BMX for track even though the skillsets are very similar because there is so much money in BMX and little to none in track.

I wonder what event(s) she'll ride.
