  1. $9775 for 4 days? You're kidding right? You could ride your bike in Italy for 4 months for that much money!

  2. I think it's intended for types that ride Cervelo R5CA frames at £7.5k ... bankers, perhaps. I understand firms wanting to make the sport seem a little more, well, up-market, sophisticated, exclusive, perhaps, but this is just ridiculous. What sort of insights do they really think Cav is going to reveal that you wouldn't get from reading his book? Nice for the craic, but it's marketing gone mad.
