So professional...............

There are very few things that Pros do that regular dorks on bike do as well (go fast uphill for example), but thanks to the Pezcyclingnews website, I discovered 2 things I have in common with the Pros of the Saunier Duval team.
1. I think it is critical to staying warm to keep your neck covered. I hate those hood/entire head masks, so I rock a "neck gaiter" or whatever you want to call it and so does the pint sized, pocket rocket, power house, Leanardo Piepoli!
2.Recovery is the key and you need to search out every legal advantage. As seen above I am not afraid of doing what needs to be done. I was ashamed of my compression socks until I saw this photo. Me and the boys in yellow are on the same page-but they don't have SE Racing socks and the dog to chill with-so sad for them.
Now if I could lose another 20 pounds and gain a couple 100 watts I might be getting somewhere.

Tricia says that when she saw this picture, she didn't realize Clive was sitting next to you. She just thought that was your regular leg-hair!

That's so not true! Alright I didn't see Clive but you made the rest up. Actually I was thinking about the compression stockings they put on me when I was in the hospital with G. I don't know why they did it but it was great until I woke up in a pool of sweat. - T
