The secret to getting stronger on the bike!

Here it is folks – the secret that all pro cycling teams and the fastest guys on your club ride have been hiding from you for decades. The reason they’re decimating you on every hill climb and leaving you in their dust on every town sign sprint. They know it, they use it, they repeat…

I’d much prefer he was forgotten and ignored,…
