I tend to agree with you on this one, sure we all have our own opinions on foul language, diet and lifestyle but I believe we are all here because this sport brings us together, a mutual interest if you will. Van Zweel sure does a lot of 'talking' via youtube but he is/was(not sure if he still is) a SA pro cyclist and he sure has the power to back up his talking. So why not support him? It takes a lot telling everybody beforehand what your goals are and run the risk of publicly humiliating yourself when you do not achieve them. I am actually glad he gives info about the ride and upload his half everesting efforts to strava so people can see what it takes riding at that level. I would love to see a few of these keyboard warriors try and ride at that pace for 10 or 20 repetitions. So please keep the updates coming Paul.
