comment Why recover with carbohydrates, instead of with protein?
@Stephen - the poster did not mention the duration of the ride and for full endurance rides not consuming carbs is strictly more correct. The liver in theory has a two hour store of glycogen. For many people this is "a long ride"

-1. An increased tailwind on stages heading West-East would assist riders increasing the upward trend in speed.

The race distance has not regressed to the mean, rather it has consitently decreased over the years; see the additional plot in my answer. I downvoted you because the speculation ("I feel...") on doping and technology is not borne out by either chart provided.

comment What is the common “vocabulary” for the captain and stoker to communicate?
Also 'Bump!' - the effect of the stoker is different from 'Hole'

revised Why not place the cleats further back on the foot?
Corrected remarks on torque when singlespeeding; it tends to be lower cadence, higher torque than geared riding.

@John - I haven't had any issues with toe overlap. The only issue I did have was having to move my saddle forwards by an equivalent amount that I had moved the cleats backwards.
