  1. Good show as always. Well done!

    First and foremost, I am a golfer to the core. But, I used to be a cyclist and still love the sport. As such, I would like to address the comments made about cycling requiring more analytical ability than golf.

    To the uninitiated, cycling can appear to be a mindless sport that does not require any serious analytical ability. However, in the case of competitive cycling, this is not at all the case.

    A serious bicycle race usually consists of several teams, all of which are trying to get one of their riders across the line first. In order to achieve this they must account for the course they are riding on, the strengths and weaknesses of their own team, the overall abilities of the other teams present, and numerous other factors. As the race progresses the team strategy will likely change quickly and often as they react to what other teams are doing.

    Long story short, competitive cycling does require a ton of analytical ability.

    I still think that golf requires more analytic ability than cycling because as golfers we make our own decisions, or make them jointly with a caddie or playing partner. In cycling team decisions are made by the whole team, along with a coach or two.

    My 2 cents.
