the last line of the Wikipedia entry made my stomach sink :(
It does seem to be an odd bit of information to add, as it really has nothing to do with his cycling career, etc. I wonder if Esa would comment as to why that is part of the Wiki entry?


Fingers crossed I have picked a winner this time round :)
Nearly every, single one of my friends have ended up getting divorced—even those who I was certain it would work out for. But for every one of those who have gotten remarried, it has gone exceedingly well the second time around.  ;)

So all the best wishes for your future!  :)

    I'm nearly 6'4" and weigh around 190-195 (87kg) normal and can get up to 200-205 (91kg) if I'm lifting weights.

    A few years ago when I raced alot more and trained 10-12 hours a week I got down to 177 pounds (80kg).

    My wife found me sexually repulsive but I was killing it on the bike!!  Amazing that pros like Mario & Stegmans get down to 155!

    All of this means nothing to me, ive no idea what a KG is in real money. I have edited the wiki entry and removed irrelevance though.

    Hey everyone... no idea what the last line of wiki was all about? I've just cut and pasted what I've found which is this: and worked as a wine maker and wine educator near Sydney. (The only inacuracy I can find is that I retired in 2000 not 1999! Esa!

    It said on the end that you had been married twice, both of which ended.
    Which is not relevant to a cyclists wiki page so i zapped it :D And ive given you an extra year.

    Cheers Dim!  :D Would you like a 'palmares' to add? There's a few missing 'stats'...

    As for the marriage break-ups etc... guys/girls, fellow velo-roomers, I suffer from Bi-Polar Disorder which unfortunately manifests itself in many unpleasant ways. I cannot have been a particularly 'nice' person to have lived with and as such friends and family have suffered too. It's pretty well documented, but just thought I'd mention it to the forum! (It's ok, I'm normal-ish... they medicated me to the hilt!)  :lol

    Eso,

    When you were in top form - winning world championships etc - what sort of power was you putting out for 4k TT's?

    Thanks,
    Keith

    Keith... to be utterly frank, I'm not entirely certain, but I would figure somewhere near 600w! Don't forget at that time (circa 1988-1991) power-meters were rare, and not as sophisticated as today... I did come across an entry in a recently 'unearthed diary' for a 10mile TT I did in 2000 (which was 438w) and was a low 19min ride...  :)

    I don't race, but I am 183 cm/6 ft and my weight has on occasion been as low as 50kg/110 lb. Currently I think I'm about 58. I still feel and am healthy - I just look like Chris Froome.

    I have massive issues with body image, being emaciated isn't a good look. Especially at my young age when every other guy is trying their hardest to look beefcake.

    I have been 182cm and 80kg for as long as I can remember, literally 15 years.

    But now the season is all but over I am looking to put some hard work in and shed some kilos to try and better myself next season.

    I have lost almost 3 already and whilst on my bike am starting to feel weaker. I suppose I need to get through this period as comfortably as possible and accept some suffering for the greater good.

    My body needs to get used to ingesting less calories and I need to figure out a way of giving myself a treat now and again without losing my desire to keep weight off and pigging out.

    Its an incredibly tough balance, especially when I have done 0 in my life to date to try and control my weight.

    Mhm. I have always been around this flyweight, I am 1m82 and I weigh 62 kilograms. No matter how much I eat, drink, snack, do nothing I remain around this weight. And that frikking sucks in the polder when you have headwind and its raining and its cold. :)

    The steepest parts uphill here are the tunnel, or the roads leading up to the dykes.. Damn :D

    It is pretty funny to read this back in comparison to today.

    I just stood on the weighing scale and I am now weighing 65,5 kilograms. I am in good shape and currently I dont have much fat on my body, flat stomach, no lovehandles sorry ladies :-x :lol, all that stuff. So I guess some of the time ive spent in the gym has payed off :P.


    Currently I feel very healthy, I still eat bad fat foods (Kapsalon :(), drink beer all that stuff, so none of that has changed since my previous post. I guess I can still feel healthy at both 62 kgs and 65 kgs. :)

    Still working really hard on this.

    79kg is the lightest I have been since teens. But I am trying to give myself the odd treat and not go starvation route again.
