I have been experiencing neck pain recently, most often when I am in the drops (preventing me from riding in the drops for more than 30sec or a minute). The pain is at the base of the skull, caused by holding my head up to see better when I get low.

Is there any exercise or streching I can do to prevent this pain?

go see a chiropractor, you have a cervical spine problem. I am a chiropractor and could fix you no problem. Or you can listen to others that have no idea what they are talking about.

While I'm sure the poster appreciated your help, I'm surprised that you'd even frequent roadbikereview.com if you thought nobody else here had a clue. What value would there be in it for you?

person in America (somewhere else?) able to give a definitive diagnosis AND PROMISE A CURE, given only the the following complaint read over the internet: neck pain while in the drops.

I had such a problem cured handily by a bike fit technician--the setup that worked great for me when I was 28 worked poorly 10 years later. I have no idea whether you may be similarly helped. In my own case, my next move would have been to consult a physician.
