Jeukendrup and Gatorade have apparently designed a series of custom drink mixes depending on temperature, concentration, etc. Pretty ridiculous considering that many teams are lucky to get frames that actually fit right.

breaking news: Bradley Wiggins admits...

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/wiggins ... tour-again

... 8) for THAT confession we have to wait just a lil bit more

as for his current situation - fans say he's got nothing to prove at this point. others point out his remarkable 2012 season (compared to previous and present year), and some gossip he's afraid to dope any longer hence his 'lack of motivation', 'misunderstanings within SKY' and 'health issues'. as there's no solid evidence supporting any of those claims, i guess we've no other option but to put Wiggo in the 'one timers' bracket, along Landis (dope), Evans, Sastre (although those two had been some solid contenders for a few years), Pereiro (currently a retired ...football player) and Schleck (who clearly lost his...uhm..brother). the only cyclist capable of repeating his triumph is Contador (dope). i feel i lack too much knowledge here in order to draw any conclusions, but i wonder - what the heck happened to the cyclists' career/performance cycle - aren't they supposed to peak for a bit longer than one-two seasons?

It sounds like he is preparing himself, and the world, for an early retirement. Which might be a smart thing. Go out while still on top. But don't come back. Every athlete who tries a comeback seems to fail spectacularly... Michael Jordan and Lance Armstrong come to mind.

Wiggins won his first world title (of 6) in 2003 when he was 23, and won the TDF and 4th Olympic gold (medalling at 4 consecutive Olympics) in 2012 when he was 32.

How many peak years do you want?

It's no surprise to me. Seeing him bottle it on that descent in the Giro spoke volumes to me about where his head was. I don't think he's got it anymore. This is not a criticism of him, it just suggests the reality. And last year was like winning the lottery. He couldn't have chosen a better set of circumstances.

On the other hand, some sporting combacks turn out brilliantly. Michael Jordan comes to mind :wink:
