Sunny Dubai or rainy Etoile?

  Inner Ring did a terrific job the other day with his Tale of Two Races analysis — the big money, hot and sunny, superstar riders, Tour of Dubai and the poorly attended, under-funded, close to death Etoile de Bessèges. Rich sheiks and oil barons have money to throw around and the Etoile has to […]

Boswell to battle Dombrowski in Tour of California?

  You know how this goes, right? It’s like one of those TV sitcoms with the two young dudes, good friends, first job in the city, and pretty soon they’re fighting over the same girl or promotion or whatever. Is that what we’re going to see in this year’s Tour of California? Former teammates at […]

Craving: new Ritte Ace

    I want, I want, I want. The incessant drumbeat of my grasping, shallow, consumerist mind. Yes, my latest fixation comes from the folks at Ritte and their just released Ace road bike. God, it’s beautiful and the frame is a mere $2700 which I have in my bank account at this very moment, […]

Armstrong hits two parked cars. Not driving like skirt?

  Disgraced pro cyclist Lance Armstrong’s drive to overturn his lifetime ban for doping has hit an obstacle. Two actually.

Astana & Armstrong. Same story?

  Woke up laughing. How else to react to the silly and manipulative news that the Kazakh Cycling Federation considered shutting down the Astana WorldTour team of Tour de France champion Vincenzo Nibali. Yeah right. Hah-ha-ha. Trying to float that kind of bullshit is almost brilliant in an old school, crude propaganda kinda way. Sounds like […]

FDJ wins TDF in 5 years. Why wait?

    Twisted Spoke keeps coming back to FDJ boss Marc Madiot’s silly comment the other day. He figures that at last the playing field is even and his French stars can finally win the French grand tour in maybe five years.

Cummings tops Valverde in Mallorca.

  It’s the “Home Wrecka” from MTN-Qhubeka. Steve Cummings won stage two of the Mallorca Challenge beating former doper and scofflaw Alejandro Valverde on the final climb up Mirador d’Es Colomer. That had to feel very good — sort of like beating Vino back in the day. “I’m really happy with today’s victory,” said Cummings. “I knew […]

Beware the Tour de France Python

  Attention Tour de France contenders: you must face down the dangerous Python if you have any hopes of winning le maillot jaune. The 2015 edition will for the second year in a row take on a mini-Hell of the North. To quote the Le Tour website: “Seven sectors and just over 13 kilometers of […]
