Ya, I get that nasty groin pain too, more so at the start of the season when the muscles are re-adapting to riding again. Stretching is key, lunges, squats, the funky one where you put your foot up on a wall. Remember to stretch before AND after, some will even say before, durring and after but then your just spending the day stretching instead of ripping it up like ya should be. Oh and drinking after a big days riding doesnt help things either as it dehydrates you further which basicly means when you go to sleep the night after your body isn't healing like it should be. I've learned the hardway (see my post on tendonitis) and now I'm still in serious pain even though the season is over (what a downer).
