FYI Jack 'n' Back

Check it out while it lasts ! FOGBEES are #1 on team list for contributions ( due to early participation and early registration and a few early donations ). Go to the MS site and observe our team name at top of list of teams. Might as well celebrate before the big corporate teams swarm us.

HEY GUYS! Well it's good to see your riding today. Tampa has been great, sunny, high 80's and lots of hockey. Sorry to report we lost all three days 2-3, 1-2 and 0-6 to the champs. Great teammates from Canada; we had a beer party and b-bque yesterday on the Gulf of Mexico beach and I got to have dinner with my uncle that I have not seen in 5 years who lives a few hours north of here. I miss you guys and look forward to riding next week although I heard it was going to get cold (is that true?) Well take care and have fun at Big L's.

PS: No I didn't drink beer down here (but I was tempted)

The Doping Dilemma

. . .Nothing is more physically crushing and psychologically demoralizing than getting dropped on a climb. With searing lungs and burning legs, your body hunches over the handlebars as you struggle to stay with the leader. Once you come off the back of the pack, the drive to push harder is gone. About halfway up a leg-breaking climb, that familiar wave of crushing fatigue sweeps through your legs as you gulp for oxygen in the struggle to hang on.
. . .Cyclists on the 1984 U.S. Olympic cycling team told how they had injected themselves with extra blood before races, either their own or that of someone else with the same blood type. “Blood doping,” as the practice is called, was not banned at the time. . . Click the title to read more.
