UCI 揭露，Brian Cookson 擔任總裁的薪水是CHF340,000(就目前匯率，約NTD11,220,000)，比起上一任Pat McQuaid 少了CHF110,000
2. Astana 對反禁藥車隊聯盟MPCC 玩了一把巧妙手段，簽下Franco Pellizotti
MPCC 規則2：Can’t hire, until two years, a rider tested positive and suspended more than six months.
但很顯然的Astana 簽下Franco Pellizotti，隨車隊練習...直到2014 年5 月再讓他上場
CyclingNews 認為：Astana appears ready to try to bend the MPCC rules by signing a contract with Pellizotti that begins on January 1 and allowing him to wear the Astana jersey and attend training camps.
但inrng 表示：This isn't bending the rules, it's breaking them.
Q 半仙認同inrng 的觀點！
3. Lampre-Merida 任命新team manager：Brent Copeland
主要是借重他的長才重建車隊並與國際接軌...看看Lampre-Merida 簽下世錦冠軍Rui Costa 擔任多日賽以及爆缸賽主將，留任Filippo Pozzato 對付石板路，而Diego Ulissi 也留下來鎖定單日賽...除此之外，也簽下Sacha Modolo 主攻衝刺，以及中國人徐剛開發426市場
4. Who had the biggest year in 2013？ Albert Timmer！
Timmer--荷蘭文裡的"木匠"--沒有顯赫戰功，UCI 排名第110，甚至一整年Q 半仙都沒看到他的報導，但他是Argos-Shimano 衝刺列車裡重要的發動機，多少麥雞頭的勝績是他頂上來的
除此之外，無論是出賽里程還是出賽日都高居WorldTour peloton 之冠...
How to Fuel for Your Ride
|Moderately paced commute
|High-intensity race or ride
|Century or other long ride
|Weekend group ride
|On days when your slow-to-moderate rides are sandwiched around an eight-hour desk session, avoid fast-burning fuel. Instead, reach for protein, healthy fats, and high-fiber veggies, fruits, and grains, which will keep hunger at bay until lunchtime.
Try: Scrambled eggs with vegetables, mixed berries, and a slice of high-fiber toast with nut butter
|Your body will be left with little energy for digestion. "Top off your glycogen stores with extra carbs the night before," says Marrs. Two hours preride, eat a low-fiber breakfast with a small amount of protein plus fast-release fuels, which clear your system quickly.
Try: A piece of toast and a smoothie made with berries, banana, and plain yogurt
|Long rides call for the slow-release energy offered by protein and whole grains.
Try: An egg burrito with sweet potato, spinach, and salsa. Doing a multiday ride? Include water-dense fruits for hydration and anti-inflammatory foods such as walnuts and berries, which help repair muscle tissue and alleviate soreness
|A two- to three-hour weekend ride on flat and rolling roads will burn through most of your energy stores, so eating a carb-rich breakfast is essential. Pair grains with fruit, advises Boulder, Colorado-based coach John Hughes: "You can digest more carbs per hour if they're from mixed sources."
Try: Oatmeal (not instant) with milk, berries, and banana
