King Size Joy

Happiness, the XL size. Ben King of Cannondale had every cycling fan in the world excited by a daring breakaway win in stage two of the Tour of California. King got away early on a fast descent along with two other insanely hungry riders and just kept going and going and going. Even with 10K […]

Rohan Dennis is the MAN in California.

Neal Rogers over at cyclingtips laid out the case for Dennis winning the overall in the Tour of California. It’s a pretty compelling and well-reasoned case and most juries would buy the evidence without much debate. Dennis is one of the few experienced GC riders coming to California with major TT skills (former Hour record holders […]

Review: Knog Blinder 640 light

We live in a time of incredible illumination. No, we’re not talking about genetic medicine or disruptive algorithms or amazing philosophical discourse around the globe. All that’s nice but we’re talking actual illumination. There has never been a better time to light up your way on a bike. Fenix, Light in Motion, Blackburn, Cycliq, Nightrider, […]

Hesjedal down 30 in Giro

It’s amazing how fickle bike racing can be. She’s a mean mistress, a dominatrix, a nasty bitch in tight black lycra. You can train like an animal for months, weigh your food, avoid even a single glass of wine and beer, sleep in an altitude tent, do your training camps, build your life around eat, train, […]

Demare talking big in Giro

After coming in second place to massive German turbo Marcel Kittel in stage 2 of the Giro d’Italia, Arnaud Demare made a fool of himself. The Francaise Des Jeux sprinter, and breakthrough winner of this season’s Milan San Remo, said that Kittel was beatable. And that’s true, Kittel is a flash and blood human being and if […]

Giro’s big three on GC. No guarantees.

Nice summation work by the endlessly experienced Andrew Hood at Velonews on the top three Giro d’Italia favorites. While there are the usual dark horses and second tier riders in with a shout (as the Brits like to say), it does feel like the top three of Vincenzo Nibali (Astana), Alejandro Valverde (Movistar) and Mikel […]

ESTEBAN-CHAVEZ-1

Orica-GreenEdge. Most Interesting Giro team

Of all the WorldTour teams in this year’s Giro d’Italia, the most intriguing might be Orica-Greenedge. They have two new and fascinating cards to play that seem sure to shake up the race at some point. For La Corsa Rosa, the Aussie squad brings Columbian climber Esteban Chavez and sprinter Caleb Ewan, mountain goat and […]

Adverse Weather Protocol. A fresh proposal.

Tour champion Chris Froome is justifiably peeved about the riders union (CPA) suggesting the brother of the Tour de Romandie race oraganizer as the rider rep on any Adverse Weather negotiations in that same exact race. Seriously folks, that’s insane and embasrrassing. This is the same riders union that finally woke up and started making […]

Liege-Bastogne-Liege. Snooze?

I feel funny saying this but I found Liege-Bastogne-Liege to be kinda dull except for the very last moments. I woke up at 6:30 AM California time, turned my laptop browser to SteephillTV and picked up a low quality Eurosport feed with Sean Kelly. Really, how said is it that you can get HD quality […]
