Ryder Hesjedal OUT of Cannondale-Garmin Valentines video

Oman, oh boy. No, really.

  The Tour of Oman is almost upon us and we have taken the extra step of downloading the iPhone app. Yes, we have Oman on hand 24/7 and that feels good. Like having the Vine app or Spotify or Minecraft. I am good to go into the desert. Oman is everything that the tedious, […]

Terpstra. A bad card for Boonen?

Tinkov media nonsense.

  When you see Oleg Tinkov’s name attached to any quote, you immediately turn on the bullshit detector, the nonsense gauge and the farce meter. The Russian millionaire tycoon and Tinkoff-Saxo team owner works the news the way the old school Russian propaganda machine did. It’s an almost fact-free, truth-devoid experience. He says one thing, […]

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 […]
