Now you just waft around on the back of the bus smelling of brylcreem.

I used to draft behind buses, great fun but you needed your hand over the brake lever

As a cyclist, drafting at high speed for hours is also fucking knackering. There is a reason that cyclists get dropped.

Totally different scenario to Kipchoge though.

Not exactly as great as Banisters sub 4 minute mile say's every dumb fuck over 50.

A brilliant achievement well done Kipchoge.

Having pacemakers does help psychologically and with pacing yourself.

It does not give the advantages of drafting as a cyclist though in terms of the speed benefit it gives you when cycling - that's just nonsense.

He had revolving teams of pace-makers line abreast in front of him who were not running the full distance along with him.

Ask a cyclist how much easier that makes things


Fucking hell. I knew there would be some fat cunt on here telling us how it's not really an achievement.

Most of us would do well to run 100 meters in just over 17 seconds.

Kin nell!

I'd definitely have to be on the performance enhancing stuff, though - probably a bit of mandy or gear.

Just over 17 seconds for the 100 metres.

420 reps.

Ridiculous.

If these yoghurt-knitting global warming activists are correct, that's a skill he's going to find very useful if he wants to get to the well before everybody else in the morning...

Just like Roger Bannister then?

Re: Eliud Kipchoge runs marathon distance in 1hr 59mins 40.2secs
There's a wholesale difference between drafting and pacemaking. Drafting is around thirty times more effective for a cyclist than it is for a runner. These guys were pacemakers - keeping him mentally focused and literally making the correct mathematical pace for the time target. They weren't putting their noses in the wind for him.

Yeah, piece of piss, when you have pacemakers.
