The Science of Sport guys break down the Lance controversy.

Wyatt tacks away from the trails to focus on road marathons.  I appreciate someone who welcomes variety.

Adam Hewey‘s TRT attempt report.  I really enjoyed meeting Adam and had fun.  What did we learn from each other? Don’t shine your headlamp into a pit toilet.
