I thought I was the only guy in this hemisphere with the sublime knowledge of this secret workout and am deeply troubled to find out otherwise. I mean if 'Brave Sparrow' from 'Mashed bits' knows about it I'm pretty sure it's gone viral by now and tomorrow I'm going to see hundreds of Tri-Geeks on their insanely areo bikes w/ saddles entirely removed from their seat posts while they ride in the standing position for an hour and a half.
This highly advanced and clandestine training method is called the 'All standing' workout or Стояща тренировка in the Bulgarian vernacular. The Pirate was great at the Стояща тренировка. But I seriously doubt he ever trained it; being Italian and a natural climber n'all.
Always one to donkey up and provide copious lip service, the UCI has gotten involved and contrary to everyone's surprise, they are against adopting the Стояща тренировка and the 4U-Nonumbnuts. In fact, they are so put off by these progressions they are maneuvering their considerable resources into a para-legal team of one to halt Treks' frame production as well as stopping any further development of Стояща тренировка at the grass roots level in every cycle club on the planet.
