don't mean in general, we all now that ;) No just while they ride major tour. Hard to imagine after butchering themselves for some 100mi of hard racing and knowing that tomorrow is another day.
maybe you should ask them. nmcollinsc

Greg LeMond said he "takes care of his needs"OffTheBack

I read this in an interview way back when, probably in 1990 or so. The interviewer told LeMond that Sean Kelley had said that he abstains for a week before a classic and three weeks before a major tour. LeMond's response was "Then Mrs. Kelley must still be a virgin! I take care of my needs during the Tour de France"

Sex the night before a race won't slow you downStraightblock

I can't think of a better way to unwind after a hard day in the saddle. Seriously. The testosterone is probably really pumping. Sex will calm the nerves allowing them to sleep at night. The old wives tale of sex "weakening the legs" is garbage - debunked years ago. I'm sure if Cipo "knocked one off" an hour before a stage, then his legs would be shot. But the night before?? Go for it Cipo!
