how long will it take

before

stock halo bikes

creep into the 20-30k range ?

Regarding Henao, I find myself agreeing with Sky

although it is yet more speculation

my impression of the study that Sky might be undertaking with Henao

is to 

take him through a cycle of low altitude and high altitude exposure

under a period of intense observation

to follow his blood values during a forced washout period 

to see if genetically

he may show an altered response to altitude exposure

as has been documented 

in Andean high altitude native populations

if this is the case

this is exactly what i would do to either verify 

anomalous blood values

Illustration of why the Critical Power Grand Tour Study 
overestimated W’ estimates 
and 
underestimated CP
above is the critical power model fit to data points
(from the 24 hr MTB champ data set from Andy Coggan)
in the 
2-20 minute range (as commonly done in lab studies linking CP to VO2)
and
10-50 minute range (as used in the GT study)
note that these fits use more points (and likely better quality points)
than the study
and 
still produced
wildly different estimates of W’
15 kj vs 35 kj 
and 
CP
308 watts vs 281 watts
it would be awesome if the CP model 
was valid in the 10-50 minute range 
it would be awesome
if it was not dependent upon the range looked at 
but
it is not
and sometimes smart people get it wrong
(myself not excluded)

Contador is BACK !!! (?)
Fresh off his Tirreno-Adriattico
and proclamations of an imminent TDF showdown 
beyond our wildest dope-scarred dreams
its time for a bit of paint by number race analysis reality check 
(numbers courtesy of Vetooo @ammattipyoraily)
and 
the answer is 
sort uv
compared to a fop fuel years 2006 Giro Ivan Basso
Contador would have been gapped about half way up the climb
giving up in total
42 seconds
over the 5.24 km 8% ish grade climb
in watts normalized to a froome size 67 kg .35 CdA rider
Contador was in the 5.8 nW/kg +/- 2% range
versus
Basso in the 6.1 nW/kg range
ie
a top a podium 
but well off the pre-ban FingerBang glory days.

Q: really wanted to know, with the horner leg question, was about bike fit: do you have any idea why his left leg is toed so much, why it seems he has to have it toed in so much? since it seems like that's a likely reason why he keeps getting injuries in that leg.

no sorry without examining the guy I don’t know if its a structural, neuro-muscular, or a bike fit issue issue. if the plane of the movement of the joints is not reasonably aligned with with the plane of the cranks then it does make sense that the stress has to go somewhere raising the likely-hood of over use injuries.

Q: what are the negative affects of clembuterol? Thx

this sounds more like a steroid forumn question.
