if you want to do the riders school.. .be there at 8 with your gear...
not sure how they do the riding part, but if I am not on my bike at the same time, you can use mine...that could at least get the school part done, and then you could work out the corner work... sprints would be hard because I will be riding mine then...but if you really want to do it.. shout out and see if any of the guys are going to have extra bikes that day... some bring several... you might could use one to get your sprint requirements done...with a you break it you fix it understanding...and what are you going to break.. a lever?

(June 14 2010) -- Gatorade isn't the only greenish drink that athletes crave. A new study indicates that pickle brine could help athletes when they need it most.

Researchers say the juice at the bottom of a pickle jar is more effective at staving off crippling muscle cramps than water.

To prove the salty premise long believed by some trainers and serious athletes, scientists induced toe cramps in male college students after forcing the subjects to bike to the point of mild dehydration. The average cramp lasted about two minutes and 30 seconds.

Pickle Juice Sport
A new study has revealed that pickle brine might be more effective than sports drinks at treating muscle cramps, confirming a longstanding assumption in the sports world. Football players, cyclists and triathletes have been sipping dill-flavored drinks, including bottles of Pickle Juice Sport, for years.

Those who downed the brine stopped complaining of cramping within 85 seconds -- about 37 percent faster than the water drinkers and 45 percent faster than when they didn't drink anything at all.

The study might come as a shock to some fitness fanatics, but it didn't surprise Brandon Brooks, who has been selling a dill-flavored athletic drink called Pickle Juice Sport for years.

"I rolled it out as a novelty beverage, but pretty soon the trainers and the teams were saying, 'You guys have the tiger by the tail here -- you don't know what you're dealing with,'" said Brooks, who's found a way to brew the drink without even using any pickles.

Brooks' beverage has become a common sight on the bike frames of cyclists, in the fridges of triathletes, and even on NFL sidelines, where he says the New York Giants have been his biggest customer.

He's even signed Dallas Cowboys tight end Jason Witten to endorse the drink.

According to Brooks, Pickle Juice Sport offers athletes the right balance of salt, fluids and vinegar -- yes, vinegar -- that they need to keep cramps at bay.

"Too much vinegar can cause the system to purge in an athletic setting -- which is the last thing you want," he said. "We found a good balance."

Like regular sports drinks, Pickle Juice Sport is loaded with electrolytes, but Brooks argues that the addition of vinegar helps deliver the much-needed liquid to the parts of the body that crave it most.

"The salt retains the fluids and the vinegar penetrates the muscle," said Brooks, who urges athletes to down about 8 ounces of his beverage alongside their regular servings of water or sports drinks. "You really need both agents to make it work."

Dr. Kevin Miller, the lead author of the study, told the Times he thinks pickle brine helps cure cramps because it triggers a nerve reaction.

In fact, pickle brine seemed to ease cramp pains so quickly that he doubts it even had time to leave athletes' stomaches before it started to work.

Instead, Miller and the other researchers argued that pickle juice might spark some kind of "neurally mediated reflex" that helps give the right cues to misfiring muscles, which are thought to cause cramps.

Though the study offers some concrete proof that pickle juice can quickly treat muscle cramps, the salty drink is still just a drop in the ocean at major sporting events compared to water and other sports drinks

Man, I didn't know there was so much involved...thought it was just show and go for some reason...thanks for the info guys...

I was looking at some 100-125 on craigslist the other day the prices were not bad.

the wife just emailed me that she had to buy another ice chest... my normal trackday ice chest won't hold all the stuff she bought to take ....I have never had cherry juice and grape juice and pickle juice and gatorade and water all together before... and cheese and crackers and protien bars.. and fruit, I forget what kinds she said...I know we are going in a 3/4ton sixpack truck with an 8' bed but ....
sounds like I am going to have a really great day and not have to worry about starving or being thirsty...

Anyone else going out there and riding?

I'm debating leaving work in Katy and just driving or coming back to get the bike and ride out.
