Here's something to rile the pretentious, obnoxious, wannabe Speed Racer poseurs out there.
You know? The sort who rave about losing 200 grams with their aerodynamic, wind-tunnel-tested, seamless, OCLV-formed, clean-room-assembled, high-modulus carbon fiber rims, lovingly custom polished between the nubile thighs of former Baltic state virgins before delivery...
And then proceed to gain 2 kg from pigging out on brownies and ice-cream.
Do you see oil tankers built from carbon fiber beating cigarette boats?
Didn't think so.
Some riders are all talk; some, all fats; others, all engine.
You know what?
Biker Fox has more street cred than you.

You are (I hope) taking these tests seated behind a desk. Now imagine attempting the equivalent whilst piloting a 1.5-ton car, a 2-ton SUV, a 12-ton truck, or a 20-ton bus.
Or, they are taking the test.
And, you are the cyclist.
