Don't get me wrong, I agree that being in control is the key, and I believe that the extra practice time can be significant. In all likelihood we will see a good race, and crested butte practice-gate will recede. But I do expect the issue to receive ... more »

I just look at this and think how hard this enduro thing is to manage with the growth so fast, and the officiating and rules lagging behind with so few staff to manage these fine details, and anticipate these issues, and so little experience built up ... more »

Most people are absolutely blown away to learn that flat pedals allow you to pedal at a lower percentage of vo2max at these lower outputs. But there is actually a lot of data from studies that show this to be true. It has more to do with lower recruitment of muscles because you are only pushing down. You get similar results from mid foot cleat placement clipped in.
