Do you think the majority of the OLN audience had a "clue" as to what Chris was talking about when he starts throwing out words like watts and lactate buffers?

It's so funny that they have that dork racing car guy hosting the show and then Chris comes out and starts spouting wattage. I love it but do you think that behind the scenes, the producer is pulling his hair out?

Funny stuff.

I think that most cyclists, sports medicine oriented people, and Dr.s did, but not the average, occasional viewer of cycling.

I loved the look from Chris after Bill Patrick's cutesy comment that oh yeah, I ride like that every weekend - uh, huh, right, Bill.

How I did it, I am recodring the tour with a Sony GVD-200 then uploading to my computer through a Divx 5.0.2 codec. This lets me save the entire 2 hours on a regular CD-R.

I'm glad they do stuff like this. It shows that they respect their core audience. Thankfully, they aren't dumbing it down to the lowest level like the Olympics, to the point where it becomes unwatchable.

If people don't understand it, they can ignore it. But for some, the seed is planted. They might look this stuff up, and later on, when Lance is storming up some mountain and Phil comments on wattage (it would probably be Paul), these people will say "hey, I know what that means now."
