Just read a bit about Garmins doctor saying they looked into the use of xenon . I have a low grade chemistry O,level and don,t really understand the ramifications of all this . Is this anything to do with Sir Daves marginal gains ?  17

Can you point us to where you read this?

If it's good enough for the Russian Olympic Team, it's good enough for Garmin.

This is my prediction for how it will eventually be packaged (and mark my words! it will eventually be packaged!):

And this is how you administer it:

Put me down for a crate!  3

I used something like this way back in 2007, on a snowboarding holiday in Copper mountain, Colorado. It's so high up, they sell this stuff in the local grocery store to help tourists acclimatise. Needless to say I bought a pack or two, and boy did it help. Instant relief from headaches and nausea.  1
Just had a ride over Kingsclere downs on some very harsh hills, and would have loved to use a mini version at times, but really should just train more on hills.  26

Found it! Thanks.

...Prentice Steffen MD, head physician at Garmin-Sharp, told Cyclingnews that although the team he worked for looked into the idea of using the Xenon, they were quickly put off...

You do realize we're talking about Xenon gas here. Right?

Are you telling us you were on the Russian Olympic Team? Or that you road with Garmin?

If neither, then please tell me what store in Colorado sold you "something like" Xenon gas? I'll be there as soon as they open their doors this morning to buy out their whole stock!
