Christian Vande Velde training in Switzerland
(Franca Pedrazzetti for The New York Times_
Team Slipstream-Chipotle's (soon to be Garmin-Chipotle) Christian Vande Velde is the subject of a piece in today's New York Times and offers lots of good suggestions for aspiring cyclists as he discusses his training regime. He can generate 470 Watts for 10 minutes so he is probably worth listening to, even if the article appears in the "Fashion & Style" section of the newspaper. I guess the fashion element is that argylle pattern...
However, I am not so sure about the recipe for on-the-ride food: peanut butter, rice and Nutella. No beer mentioned anywhere.
N.B. In looking at the on-line NYT today, June 20, I see that the article about Christian Vande Velde is the most e-mailed article of the newspaper!
