  1. MY CBD EXPERIENCE : I am an old guy (( 57 )) a dedicated roadie , with a LOT of past injuries. …. I have been dosing liquid CBD for 2 weeks now during ride / training ….. I am usually in a constant state of DOMS (( from riding )) and neck shoulder pain (( from a serious fall )) …What I have noticed is…… 1) If its HOT outside it does not feel as hot and if it is cool outside it does not feel as cool (( kind of a very mild analgesic effect )) ….. 2) The best effect of all so far is that after max effort standing hill climbs were I usually suffer from deep soreness for days afterward. I was UN-effected by the max effort climbs with no post ride soreness whatsoever …Granted this is so non scientific and so such as short term anecdotal experience …… The other good thing is I did not experience any negative effects thus far…..Note: I have taken CBD at work and I don't feel so great on it just walking and talking at work I feel a bit of "anxiousness" …..So it is inconclusive in my short term experimentation.

  2. I donโ€™t know or care about cbd but, If anyone would like to trail their thc products on me please feel free to hit me up. I see only benefits from from my personal usage. โœŒ๏ธ

  3. "We've got a break with four CBD athletes, five minutes on the chasers, but will they keep their advantage? Let's see. They're just two miles from the Munchies Zone." And I grin and say thanks, Dylan, for looking into this. It seems to be a top seller at the convenience store, so maybe that's the secret ingredient, convenience.

  4. My wife has a so-far undiagnosed neurological disease that causes amongst other symptoms pain in nearly every muscle of her body and mild buzzing like tremors. Sometimes those symptoms are strong enough to keep her awake at night even though she has taken the prescribed medications. Whenever this happens, she takes some CBD oil, and soon falls asleep. And sheโ€™ll sleep the rest of the night afterwards. I believe in that stuff.

  5. I love backwards hat Dylan. ๐Ÿ˜‚ I laugh every time.
    I guess thatโ€™s why all the downhillers were so fast back in the day, even though their bikes were crap with todayโ€™s standard. It was probably the only doping test they would have failed as well.๐Ÿค˜๐Ÿค”

  6. I think there's plenty of CBD in the hash I vaped last night ๐Ÿ˜€ really helps with my training induced restless leg syndrome, muscle soreness, and insomnia without any toxic nastiness. Ridiculous it's on WADAS banned list when it's not exactly performance enhancing, and isn't even toxic. Remember when snowboarder Ross Rebagliati had his Olympic gold medal taken, then they gave it back.

  7. First off have you ever tried it for yourself sure he has his opinion but thats his opinion not yours i took a long time to make the decision to use cbd why because I'm an alcoholic in record 11 +years clean and sober originally started to use cbd when i got off antidepressant effector xr yes doc keept me on way to long side effects of effector xr was worse then what it was to fix so with my doc we tried cbd it took some time to find rite combo but what I get from cbd outways what someone else thinks and in this process I discovered the benefits to my mountain biking yes it improved drastically went from getting my ass kicked to buy ten +minutes to this year podium 2 1st place and 1 2nd place finish so yea do the test yourself to find if it works for yourself you won't know if it works unless you try it me im in and yes cbd saved my ass thanks for your input Dillon but hey I don't go buy science I go buy what it has done for me !!!!! It might not work for you but you will never know if you just go buy what somebody else's opinion is cbd check it out you might just be surprised ๐Ÿ˜ฎ ๐Ÿ˜‰

  8. Hey Dylan what do you think of trainerroad, they seem like good guys but the plans they make have people doing huge interval workouts 5 times a week! everyone i know who used TR has said how burnt out they got and never finished a plan fully without missing lots of workouts in the back half.

  9. Hi Dylan, with regards of the lockdown and the races being postponed and cancelled, what training do you recommend that we do now? I have just finished my build training plan, 1 month. I did 2 months of base before that. I am starting a recovery week, but I had planned to start the specialty plan afterwards. As it was supposed to be mid season now. Shall I continue with build, or start all over with base? I suppose there will be at least 2 months notification before the races are restarted – enough time to do a 1m base and 1m specialty phases.
