The correct term should in fact be "leg tearing" not leg ripping. Ripping would imply that the leg has been yanked completely off in a quick and "almost" painles manner. What happens on the daily lunch ride is more akin to "tearing" as it happens slowly and if all goes well, quite painfully indeed. This has been done in a few different varities from long fast flat sections of road, to long grinding back breaking climbs. The result is usually the same, with at least on of "the guys" wimpering about working too much or out too late... At least we look good in our custom team kits though... Thanks Shaun!!!!
