    Good point - he'll probably still be 20+ though, its based on the last 12 months so will still include the 2012 TdF, San Sebastian and Dauphine...

    Some people may be interesting in looking up Durianrider on YouTube, he is on a high carb - low fat raw vegan diet and has been for 12 years or so now. Very interesting bloke, does a lot of cycling at a very high standard, 36/7 years old and under 8% body fat. His diet definitely isn't for everyone (myself included), but it's interesting none the less.

    Warning, he is a health activist, so be prepared to turn the volume down! (he shouts, a lot).

    Now this is what is crazy, in a twisted way, I've thought so much about this that I feel one could argue, in fact, that, because (!) winning the game Standard-Style is harder (!), arguably (!), then maybe Standard Players deserve not only their own (!) prize but a better (!) prize!

    I have to wonder why do you think Sram grease isn't good enough for your hubs.

    Precisely because I don't think the most expensive is necessarily the best. There are many tinkerers and fettlers on road.cc who will have stumbled across otherwise unsung brands. I guess you're not one of them then.

  • road.cc mobile site or fantasy app?1 year 8 weeks agoThanks Gkam. Android forum

    Thanks Gkam. Android forum app would suit me - yes please. I think a fantasy app would be amazing (note to bosses!) and would be a nice addition to the game. Could be part of premium package or standalone fee (or both?). I'm not a premium player but would pay for an app.

    It's time USADA brought about some more 'Reasoned Decisions' More and more fans are suspicious that the UCI is in denial and reluctant to upset the 'Stakeholders' by ruling on high profile riders suspected of cheating. I believe the blood passport is no longer reliable (if ever it was) Armstrong got round it at will.

    Yes, I know, Grolsch is Dutch, not German...

  • gluten free1 year 8 weeks agoMy 7yo son is also coeliac

    My 7yo son is also coeliac and was diagnosed just over 2 years ago - he now follows a strict GF diet but eats plenty (lots of rice, meat and GF cereals and GF pasta).

    As I also have 2 other (younger) children, we decided that it was not really feasible for the whole family to go GF, but we do now eat a lot more fresh food and almost nothing processed - very few manufacturers are prepared to say "gluten free" on their packaging and it's unfair for us to eat biscuits (for example) when he can't. There's also a surprising amount of food that has wheat/wheat-derivatives in it - ice cream, for example.

    On the beer front, he is already looking forward to cider and wine and, I have heard (although not checked) that some of the "pure" German beers (e.g. Grolsch) are effectively GF as a result of the brewing process. I am looking forward to conducting more personal research in this area!
