i rode with lance armstrong today...

#1 Postby durianrider » Wed Jan 14, 2009 12:55 am

3hours in the mountains around adelaide. lance was more interested in my bamboo bike than what i eat. his assistant, elizabeth was on a motor bike following and taking shots. she called me back and asked me about what i eat. she told me lance has a close friend that is a vegan athlete. she almost fell off the back of the motorbike when i said 'actually im a raw vegan. 100% raw plant foods. NO COOKED FOOD EVER!, i get my carbs from fruit.' she was like' but you ride so fast! thats insane!'

then we hit a 7km climb and i attacked off the front. i was going too fast for lance and the team, cos they just let me go. i guess the guys are saving their legs for the real race that starts on sunday.

somehow i made a video of the ride and will post it on youtube shortly..
when i got back to the city the local journo's did a story. they took photos and i was wearing my organic athlete kit. it will run in tommorrows paper that has over 500 000! readers! lol! the journo loved the part about how i can eat up to 60 bananas in a day and ride 515km in a day.

so now lance armstrong knows whom durianrider is..lol! the crazy vegan dude from adelaide that races a bamboo bike..

ok, gotta go hydrate, carb up, rest up, stretch up etc, cos who knows what opportunities tommorrow will bring us?

Thats great! 60 bananas a day?

I eat about 50 a week, I thought that was a lot! You should see the look I get at the Whole Foods when my basket is full of bananas!

Nice work! :o

60 a day?!? You must have one hell of a compost heap.

AND a Bamboo bicycle? Wow man. I want pics.

Sounds like it was an awesome ride! 8) And a great opportunity to share being a raw vegan athlete.
