"I was shocked to see that out of 198 world-class athletes, 52 percent would be willing to give up their life for five years of an undefeated run of wins," Goldman told Reuters during the 2004 Olympic Games in Athens.

He repeated the survey every two years for the next decade and the results were always the same - around half of the athletes polled were ready to die for gold. "Some of the athletes are only 16-years-old," Goldman said. "To be willing to die at 21 is a serious psychological mindset."

Speaking of 21, Simon has invited NZ to his overdue 21st

http://www.stuff.co.nz/sport/olympics/c ... Velthooven

Simon van Velthooven, who dubbed his Olympic cycling keirin bronze as "the nation's medal", went a step further the morning after by issuing an open invitation to his overdue 21st bash at the family farm in Manawatu, between Palmerston North and Feilding.
"At the old farm in Manawatu, there'll be a big barbecue and a sheep on the spit and a few brews handed out. It's a 48 hour open home so anyone's invited."

I would think they'd be somewhere around 95 to 105 inch gearing.
