... and I thought it was just because I was on my first cup of coffee. The gist of it that I thought was funny is that he trains hard, not to win anything but to be stronger so he can train harder. That's pretty much why I push myself on the bike. Just so that I can be stronger and can push myself harder.

Not even so he can train harder, he's training hours on end just so he can continue training hours on end for the rest of his life.

Sounds brutal and pointless to me. Towards the end on the long ride I did Sunday, the brutality and pointlessness of the activity seemed most evident to me. It felt good though when I stopped. :)
