    Friday and 206 km up for the week. I got some bad news today, an old mate Dick Jensen, (the older Wheelmen’s Club riders will remember him) is in John Hunter hospital in Newcastle  suffering with emphysema. Dick has been a heavy smoker all his life and he also worked in refrigeration reconditioning and was always inhaling the fumes and gases of the trichloroethylene washing baths over the years and it probably has finally caught up with him. Dick was a very good rider and his daughters Joanne and Kerry and son Stephen used to race with the Parramatta CC.
    On my ride this morning I had done 25 km before arriving at SOP and whilst circulating around the station there were a few light rain drops. I noticed three riders: Geoffrey Wong, no rust stainless steel John and Ben who should have taken his cab home, huddled sheltering under a shop awning, so I called out to them “Come on all you heroes, let’s go,” and go they did, straight to George’s Quad café.

    There are only two types of problems.
    There are only two types of problems worth solving. And they are MY and OUR problems. It is nice to have a bit of fine weather now. It has been wet and stormy lately and as a roof repairer, I get told about lots of roofing problems. And when you get problems all day long, it gets you down. I feel sorry for doctors and dentists. They get a fresh problem every 15 to 30 minutes…. It is no wonder that doctors call for the pill.We live in a world full of problems. If we feel that there is not enough, we create some more. In a consumer orientated world, the marketers love creating problems because they have just the right product to fix it. In fact, the whole world economy is based on people saying that they can solve someone else’s problems.
    We have doctors (sorry to all the doctors out there…I picked you because you are an easy target) who are on the opposite end of the scale in optimal health dishing out medical advice. And Clergy of questionable morality preaching a sinless life. Every profession has examples of “do as I say. Not as I do”. It is easy to have solutions for   more ...

    Parasites of the peloton

    1.an organism that lives on or in an organism of another species, known as the host, from the body of which it obtains nutriment.
    2.a person who receives support, advantage, or the like, from another or others without giving any useful or proper return, as one who lives on the hospitality of others.
    Straight up let me just say I am not against drafting (aka ‘wheel sucking’) per se. I’ve written about it before (http://carbonaddiction.net/2014/02/09/whinge-whinge-whinge/) and I know it works. I know it’s part of our sport. And I know it’s a tactically shrewd and highly expedient way to approach your racing, be that on the professional roads of Europe or the potted crit tracks and velodromes of club land. Yes, I even do it myself.
