    Hi Scott,

    There are special magazines for that kind of stuff !
    Maybe you ought to buy one for seeking out what is hot or not, hm,
    that rimes..

    Also there was a lot to do about Lance Amstrong who won the Tour of
    France ( Cycling), where everybody else was using force to get up the
    mountains, he prefered to use his bycicle as it was intented, to paddle
    around. The trick he uses is that he makes more rotations than everybody
    Also that can be learned from those magazines I mentioned earlier.
    Not that I am in depth of those...
