So when he’s pain-free and the doctors clear him, he should be ready to play. — Larry Davis

When I got off the bike at the end of the Tour, it was finished, — Lance Armstrong

We’ve got to adjust. — Anne Donovan

Dancing is like riding a bike. — Jamie Bell

People want the bike that Lance rode. It’s a huge thing with them. — Tom Kuefler

We are here to test, and it’s better that the problems emerge here rather than in the race! — Sete Gibernau

Today I rode the new bike all day and we made some good progress. It was the first time we’ve had chance to spend a lot of time on the chassis and engine and I went quite a lot faster on it than I did last time here so that’s positive. It’s still a prototype machine and there are a lot of things we still need to try because it’s quite a bit different to my other bike. It would have been nice to test the two bikes back to back but I’m sure we’ll get a chance tomorrow. — B. R. Hayden

I hate going to the gym, so sweating outdoors sure beats sitting on a stationary bike staring at my navel. — Tom Selleck

To limit oneself to finding a mate on hikes is the wrong thing to do. I belong to Parents Without Partners, Events and Adventures, Space City Mixer and Great Expectations.

She likes to bike ride and ski, too. — Ken Levine

We were looking for the optimal set-up of the bike for the Brno track so it wasn’t until near the end of the session that I went full out, — Valentino Rossi

I will also be biking in various kinds of weather to get used to all kinds of situations. — Ericc Powell

I travel often, which can make maintaining a workout schedule a little difficult, but I try to make time for it whenever I can. Sometimes I wake up extra early so I can fit in a run or a bike ride, and other days I’ll just blast music and jump around or watch a 30-minute exercise video. — Bethany Mota

I think the more trails anywhere the better. This is an obese city, – and it’s not a street-friendly place, so riding a bike on the street is bad. — James Rhodes

Of course fixing this vibration is now our main focus and today we worked a lot with the entire team to try to find the right way forward. We had great cooperation between the two riders and both crews, exchanging information and experience and this is very important for the team’s progress.

We’ve already done many days testing with this new bike and mostly it’s going very well, now we have two more days here to continue with our improvement. — Davide Brivio

Our bike worked really well when we went to Qatar for pre-season testing so we hope that this will be the case again. — Valentino Rossi
