  1. Yeah it's actually kind of bizarre for me, the older I get, the less I can deal with heat. I actually prefer cold and damp. It's almost the opposite from everyone else. That said, the coldest you can ever be is cold on a sailboat. It's wet and you don't dry out for days if you are offshore. Yeah old Hatch has a way with words there, lol
  2. If it's good enough for Andy Hampsten, it's good enough for me.
  3. I love weather like that, ha.
  4. 100%. That's how I roped my wife in to watching cycling as well. "Honey look at all the beautiful landscapes and castles!!!"
  5. I have to say, I'm about to tune out at this point. It's become too predictable.
  6. If you want to spend that much then I would 100% go bespoke. You could catch one of the UK shirt makers on a trunk show, Budd or Turnbull are both fantastic. Turnbull actually comes to Austin. US shirt makers can be ok if you find one, but it's going to take some digging.
  7. Yeah, honestly from an entertainment perspective (definitely not a sporting one), having a tired Pog, and half trained Jonas, Remco and Roglic at the Tour would be epic.
  8. Vinge is so banged up I can't imagine he will be in form by the Tour. You never know though
  9. Milan is a goddamn animal
  10. Yeah that is the eternal debate on tethering. It is so circumstance dependent there really is no one answer. I can tell you if you are in a spot where your tether is long enough to let you go all the way into the water while the boat is moving, there is no way even a young fit person would be able to get back onboard unassisted. Any kind of speed at all and you better have a knife to cut the tether loose or you will get drowned and beaten to death on the hull.
  11. Yeah, may be. Throw out some budget numbers @williemackgarza and maybe can give you some more specific recs
  12. Maestri was definitely in the "I'm just happy to be here" camp after that one. Awesome to see him go for it
  13. As it should be. Honestly, if he wants an Austin local, I may not be much help. But @CoTex suggestion for proper cloth is totally servicable. Kamakura makes solid off the peg stuff too. I'd probably recommend getting some shirts and just finding a local alterations tailor to tighten up the fit if he doesn't want to splurge on MTM
  14. Lou Loooooouuuu.... That crazy bastard did it.
