    Crit race - is there a strategy

    I'm going to try crit racing in a few weeks, fitness is ok for C/d grade, just wondering if there's any strategy tips from peeps here. Most Zwift races have a few surges to break up the pack then usually a slugfest or sprint to the end, is there another way or is that how it mostly goes?

    Fasting, who does it

    Anybody doing it, and if so how's it working out? I've been reading some pretty vague material on it and apart from the whole not eating part it seems a little too good to be true. Would be keen to hear any views on it, esp some critique as that seems pretty slim pickings. So if you do it...

    Other spirits

    A wee thread to roundup the other drinks besides whisky & rum (with their own threads) that burners are enjoying, however that may be. Mixed, on ice, neat, perhaps an intercontinental adaptation, what is it? Myself presently is some plain old cognac, neat.

    Entry level race bike

    HR getting high / Heart stress test

    When I'm riding on the trainer e.g. zwift race, my HR just keeps going up and up to around 185-190 and I hold it back a bit to avoid it going 190+, which I figure is sensible as using the old super accurate equation my max should be around 185. It's a bit disconcerting because zwift results...

    Have been thinking about upgrading the wife's bike, and dreaming about new wheels for myself. Had a brain wave that I possibly convert my current bike for her. She has an older Anthem X 29er, and oddly it's quite similar in all effective rider cockpit dimensions to my Trance, the TT is the...
