I read that O'Grady went to the hospital for "hypertachicardia". It also said his heart rate was up at 235 bpm...DAMN!!! Anyone know what hypertachicardia is? I'm 37 and regularly see 180-190 bpm and push to 195-200 bpm sometimes. I'm just wandering if this is related; I had a stress test done last year and was told to keep on riding.

I doubt it. If youre pushing it to levels expected of your heart rate you are fine. You will know if you have it cos your heart rate will suddenly jump anywhere from 20-50 beats, above what you should be at. This also would happen sporadically and not every time you push your heart.

Just because you have high heart rates you achieve, this is normal.
