Video: Friday Fails #45
Is it really a fail if you get up to the top of the stack of pallets? The bike was just a means to an end there...

@WAKIdesigns: have you seen the Friday Fails with dopes jumping without helmets? I'd say natural selection is working just fine...

What are these "European Bike Fundamentals" Miranda refers to in their tagline? Are they different form the Bike Fundamental in North American or Asia? Could this explain to some degree Waki?

Podcast: Off Season Workouts From Adam Brayton's Coach
@WAKIdesigns: actually, low intensity aerobic work will inhibit you from bulking up. the lifting will increase testosterone levels, help with bone density, and keep lean muscle from atrophy as we age. that's why is becomes more important the older you get. You build a large aerobic engine with the accumulation of low intensity work, and the "turbo" addition is the intervals or HIIT you build upon it. For me, the lifting is as much to do with the upper body, and fighting fatigue in the shoulders and arms from riding technical trails. I think pump track sessions and the rowing machine (which seems to be in the background of every mtb gym video) would help.

@WAKIdesigns: How long is a BMX moto? A minute? I tend to ride a bit longer than that. Again, not discounting explosive power, which I know is key for cleaning some technical sections. It is having the fitness to do it over and over again.

Podcast: Off Season Workouts From Adam Brayton's Coach
@WAKIdesigns: Did I say gym work wasn't important? not at all. There are clips of Sagan in the gym and he has better mobility than Bike James, which is kinda funny, but I digress. Power to weight, FTP, etc. are just as important as how many reps you can do in the gym at whatever weight...lifting a hunk of metal is not turning a crank on a bike. Those gains have to be translated into performance on the bike, for the duration of the event.

@WAKIdesigns: uh...no. With the exception of DH, BMX and Sprint track events, the rest of cycling is an aerobic endurance sport. Pretty sure Nino Shurtter is spending a ton of time on the road bike. He may post cool gym work outs on IG, since a stream of a solo road ride would be boring AF, but the aerobic endurance is why he is hammering on lap 7. Same applies to Rude. Even for punters like myself, having the fitness from road miles is why my buddies are smoked after 3 enduro stages and I am still (relatively) fresh,
