Yeah... legs like twigs :oops: ... really makes it plain that road cycling has very little to do with brute strength.

Try racing against Jared Graves - One of his Training ride 102k's 290watts average at 120bpm as a base ride average speed 35kph. Seen peak power of 2500watts lol

Stupid figures. But that's what you get when you get paid to ride as well.
