𝗪𝗵𝗮𝘁 every cycling nerd 𝙬𝙖𝙣𝙩𝙨 is to be faster.
𝗪𝗵𝘆 do they want to be faster? Because they want to look cool and be like their heroes in the Tour De France.
𝗛𝗼𝘄 do they become faster? Well, the reality is you need to train more and eat less calories so that you become stronger and lighter to get...
