Two world class examples of Crossfit transfer to the elite.
Larry’s experience is awesome. He grabs an old Huffy and rolls with a bunch of geeks. I know the exact kind of rider you are talking about. I have a client who is Crossfit and her husband is a bike guy. He came to me for a period of time but was embarrassed that his wife was kicking his rear after he was spending more than twice the time in training.
I’m not too scientific but I can use my eyes. Did anyone see Tyler Hamilton the day he had to drop out of the Tour? He took off his jersey and a camera got up real close. His torso looked like a P.O.W. It was certainly good for sit a top a bike saddle but it did little else. If you can’t carry in your groceries from the urban assault vehicle then there is something wrong with your fitness.
