As you may know the @TeamQUON blog always tries to be informative and educational so that our followers depart from the blog, enlightened and well informed in all facets of, ah, um. life.
As such, it has come to our attention over recent months that a number of cyclists within the Canberra Cycling community have begun to train on their race wheels (Oxymoron intended).
We have spent QUONsiderable amount of time analyzing this trend and have come to a few QUONclusions. People are doing this as they believe it is;
Firstly the uneducated understanding that being an A Grade HHHHHHHHHHHhhhhiter entitles you to do so.
Secondly the incorrect assumption that you have them so you should use them.
These two misQUONceptions are just that, mythQUONceptions.
Athletes and hubbards alike should understand that riding race wheels whilst attending a training ride do not make you look cool and fast. It simply screams out;
"I NEED ALL THE HELP I CAN GET BECAUSE I CAN'T KEEP UP"
So next time you go for a "roll" with the race wheels on, whilst not racing, you probably need to invest in a pair of compression socks.
NB: Dodger you're exempt. High 5. Love rads
