  1. Wish Jack had asked him about his diet – wonder if he operates 95% on fat/protein. (Certainly nothing like my diet).

    • In the previous interview (broadcast in January) I did ask him about his diet and calorie intake. He said cheese and sausages would be the mainstay.

    Wait till You heal and start again.
    Other injuries will develop riding one legged.
    If you must ride.. use hands to cycle. While you recover.
