Whilst DDD can be accused of many things I'm pretty sure he's not Jimmy Saville.

Got confused between 16 years old and 16 mph because he didn't use units. And because thats faster than DDD goes.

You know my thighs are called Nuclear and Fission, and if you're not careful there will be an explosion of awesome coming your way.

Don't make me challenge you.

A true scalp is not only overtaking someone but leaving them stopped at a set of lights. As you, who have clearly beaten the lights, pummels nothing but the open air ahead. ~ 'DondaddyD'. Player of the Unspoken Game

Challenge.

Give me details of your commute, I'll find you and I'll overtake you. I may not hold it, but I will overtake you.

This week, train. Forseeable future, train. Not much option unfortunately.

Lets have a Richmond Park lap-off. That way OKGO can play if he puts his rucksack on.

I don't think any rucksack could support such a weight!

Whats your best lap?

the other issue is that at that weight I think I'd void most of the gear on my race bike as its only meant for thin people!

No problem is insurmountable.

1) Parachute it is.
2) Nothing amazing. C. 20 minutes so I ought to get out there and actually try.
3) N+1.

Using some man maths, I did 20 min laps the other day with 230 watts, which at a weight of 80kg is 2.8 w/kg. You are 118kg, so for you to match my w/kg and in theory the same sort of time (conditions and traffic obviously, but for sake of this) you'd need 330 watts, I've done 350 round there fairly recently with a bit more in the tank so assuming you could find a bit more effort in an all out, I think we would end up being very similar but I'd still back myself to manage what I have over you managing to find another 20 watts :D

Think that makes sense, but my head is fried, I've spent the day looking at numbers!
