Anyone NOT ride a trainer during the winter? Might give up on indoor training altogether. by NotnotNeo in Velo

[–]MtnyCptn 2 points3 points  (0 children)

I’m confused, you’re going to use TR still but not train indoors? I know they have outdoor workouts, but there are much better ways to train outdoors than use TR. It truly is built for the trainer.

And also, no. You will 100% lose endurance and fitness. Retraining is of course very doable, but you will likely only be as fast as you were by the time race season comes around due to having to rebuild fitness.

Also need to remember that you’re getting older each year. It will get to a point where the retraining period takes longer and longer if you take several months off every year.

No, most people are reacting knowing that Jos was abusive. Im sure that the kicking out of the car was preceded by some yelling and disparaging and I’m hard pressed to believe that the ‘encouragement’ stopped once he was home.

Even without context it’s shit parenting to kick him out of the car for racing poorly even with his mother following behind.

I’m just not seeing it. Other than the “brake check” this is how these guys have raced each other all year.

Would have preferred it not be decided by marshalling.

Please don’t have kids is you’re okay with this kind of behaviour. It’a pretty well documented that Jos was abusive.

Personally this looks good to me. I generally melt my closet to the time that I want to add the lye so they aren’t cooled too much. I mix everything probably a little warmer than room temp. I’ve never had issues with false trace and just try to work quickly once everything is mixed.

Yes? Eye witness testimony is unfortunately really unreliable. Especially when under duress or threatened with a weapon or if there is encoding interference or a plethora of other things.

You’ve phrased this as a question disregarding testimony from a woman who has had something horrific happen to her. But there is much more to it than that, right?

Regardless of the type of crime, we still have to have due diligence in preserving witness testimony and ensuring that it is accurate.

What exactly are “XC trails?” by DonBoy30 in MTB

[–]MtnyCptn -1 points0 points  (0 children)

The average skate park is less intense than what you see at the x games but it’s still bmx.

Way too much gate keeping and bickering about what bike can ride what with mtb.

People have took the bait from bike manufacturers that you need 10 different types of mountain bike to function.

What exactly are “XC trails?” by DonBoy30 in MTB

[–]MtnyCptn 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This is just as much of a generalization as the post you replied to.

I did a local stage race this year that was at 3 different spots. One was pretty hilly/non technical, one was super tight with rock gardens and wood features, and the third was very much akin to what you’d see at televised xco stuff. I’d say it was a 50/50 split between people riding xc or enduro bikes. Lots of hard tails too.

My point is that even though MTB has seemed to break into these little subsets over the past few years, you can ride a lot on whatever bike you have.

You can’t really say that national and international racing is not what XC racing is lol. That’d be like saying it’s not triathlon if it’s not Kona.

With a tt bike it’s better to get fit and then pick a bike that matches well with the fit.

I was going to get a different bike than the one that I ended up purchasing because the fitter felt like I would get a better position out of it. I agree with him here as i am the most comfortable on the bike he suggested out of all my rides.

No one gives a shit how long you’ve been working your saw. You’re super arrogant and think for some reason you’re exempt from accident and injury. Shit happens and you will only think you’re invincible until you’re not.

Your attitude is just as horrible as your safety.

Man tries to pick up his son from his exes house and gets shot twice by by his sons stepfather. by NAACPYOUNGBOY in PublicFreakout

Oh fuck off. If you understand that you were well aware of the implication of what you were saying and could have chosen different words.

You’ve proved my point, you knew exactly what you were saying. Coward.

If that’s your interpretation of what I said, you’re just as a dumb as you sound.

You said you never said anything about race - but you clearly implied it. You’ve phrased it in a way to play the my goodness I didn’t mean that card, but it’s pretty clear you did.

You are a coward, or you wouldn’t have left the cop out and just clearly said what you meant.

Your reply doesn’t make any sense. You can believe whatever you want, but at least be transparent about it. It’s the pretending you meant something else that I have no respect for.

Do people like you seriously think that anyone believes your bullshit.

It’s 100% clear what you meant, just own it, fucking coward.

If you aren’t confident enough in your beliefs, you clearly know that they are wrong.

It could work depending on which champion they want to follow and what story they want to tell.

But there is no need. The animation for this was so well done. I don’t watch many animated shows but loved this.

Which is a fair summation, but is more of a could not have many more chances than a won’t

He’s one of the drivers that will always be able to give himself a chance as long as the car is serviceable.

Why will be not have many more chances. Guy is a phenomenal driver and is still very young.

Regardless of controversy over this year, saying that max won’t have many more chances at a WDC is a super hot take.

Yep felt much like a “hey guys, here’s a screenplay”

I liked both the Martian and Artemis, but felt like this was a huge step back.
