Gear. 

This is 3 years old or something like that but it’s the correct approach to bike racing.

Question dump. Top to bottom.
That’s awesome. No I have not. I’ve always just tried to eat healthy but not worry about the calories. 
Greg is a rad dude and I believe he rode clean. 
I shoot for something in the 54cm top tube range. For most of those bikes they call it a medium or something. From there I adjust the cockpit to get my desired reach. 
I mostly agree with you but I’ve definitely done a few races where I know I did some damage and probably cut a year or two of my life.

Try it out see if it works for you. 
I don’t know. I ride in my kit because that’s what I’m comfortable in. 
OMG no.
I have.

Going with four at a time with these question dumps due to certain peoples memory constraints. 
I haven’t had any trouble yet. 
Not well.
I think the joke is mostly on the people that think the guys that wrote them were being super serious. 
Saturday you could hop on the Rocket Ride. There is a facebook group for it if you want more info. Don’t know anything about Friday rides. NYC Velo will rent you a good road bike. Bring your own shoes and pedals.

This is the first time I ran into someone wearing world champ socks who was pulling them of well.

Fanboy selfie ensued and was documented.

Greg is the greatest ATMO.

Bike practice.

I think the extent to which people play up their suffering is generally overblown. But you can’t be good at bike racing without being able to dig your self in to such a deep dark place that suffering becomes an appropriate word for it. So maybe…
Yesterday at the NCC Crit a rival teams manager was pushing me back into the race after a mechanical and pushed me directly into another person who also happened to be pushing someone into the race. I lol’ed. I also don’t think it was on purpose. But that’s what I got for you.
My immediate though is what’s wrong with a traditional double? 
Probably. 
There is a Hess on 4th ave but I wouldn’t call it good as there are usually a bunch of cars blocking the self service station for no reason. 
Totally.
Huh?

This trip was so much driving and the racing was bananas. I’m glad to be home.
