A few days back he was interviewed and mentioned that his trainers wanted him to do a warm-down once he got off the stage.

I'm not sure how much value that has after a 200km liason, but there it is...

edit: Doh! 20f5'd

Yes, these top guys are athletes, there is no question of that.

Not " sportsmen" like the snooker and darts but true athletes

Fully programmed fitness training regimes - it might only ultimately prove a couple of minutes, but it's now coming to that!

CDP and a few others have cycling related activities as serious hobbies and would be competing on bikes or in triathlons if they weren't fortunate enough to be where they are

International rugby has had the spinning bikes on the touch line for a few years now - keep loose, warm up cool down etc.

They will be on ice baths after the stage next

Morning catch up done - dog walk and gym next, a few chores and catch you all for the final party - but what a party it's going to be - it could be the most focused stage yet

A massive thanks to PM for arranging Pyn's call-in tonight whilst away with his family and all that.

This was a milestone call-in. Almost all the apprehension is gone now, but not quite. Pyn knows the limits of his bike like never before in his life. I had a little laugh when he mentioned the sports bikes trying to keep up with his RR on knobblies. Some of us can relate to that story I'm sure. Probaly his best masterclass so far riding in dust with the number of overtakes today. He can't drop his guard yet. He'll be listening to every little noise, but he can enjoy a one-day ride to the finish of Dakar 2013 surely?

Went for dinner and came back to Lopez taking a 15 minute engine change

Lyndon almost sounded like he was tired

Luis defies all odds, again

No news about Kurt's engine......

Other than first place, we're heading into the last stage with a race for the podium

best F5 season ever? YES
