Lunchtime fun: don't waste those turbo calories! + video

Got a Lemond trainer with a big fan? Make the most of it...

"Yeah, but can Mark Cavendish do this?", asks Olympic-gold-medal-winning triathlete Simon Whitfield. The two have a lot in common, according to this vid. Cav's won Giro d'Italia stages, Simon's been to Italy. Cav's won Tour stages, Simon's been to France. They both own a Specialized Venge Di2. But Simon's got another trick up his sleeve, thanks to his Lemond turbo trainer and its beefy fan...

It's a cracking party trick. Can Cav do it? no doubt, although with the tour looming he's probably got other things on his mind. Certainly it'd be interesting to line Simon up against Cav and see who could get their castle up the quickest. My money's on the Manxman. Against pretty much anyone...
