Garmin hits rock bottom in team wins.

Garmin going down or maybe up? Life ain’t real sunny in the Land of Argyle, home of Jonathan Vaughters and the Cannonade-garmin squad. A Team Victory Ranking on InnerRing shows them second to last with less wins than FDJ and IAM Cycling. This was a shocker. FDJ is routinely described as a messed up operation […]

Warren-Zevon

Aru wins Vuelta, Zevon howls.

  Aaoooooo! Too bad late 70’s singer-songwriter-crazy Warren Zevon wasn’t around to watch the fireworks at the 2015 Vuelta a Espana. Specifically stage 20, where Fabio Aru of Astana, trailing Uber-surprise Tom Dumoulin by six seconds and down to his last mountain stage, destroyed the Belgian to win the overall tomorrow in Madrid. Zevon would […]

Mark Cavendish

Cavendish in Africa? Comedy ensues.

    First reaction: who’s the clown in the MTN Qhubeka jersey with the witless joke? Really, truly, supposedly? Word on the internet from sources with no grip on reality or agent with desire to pump up market value or just plain desperate act have Mark Cavendish going to MTN-Qhubeka along with faithful lap dog […]

Tyler Hamilton video. What’s it worth, really?

  Sort of like watching the first film at the USADA Anti-Doping film festival, right? There is now a film clip meets cautionary tale on Travis Tygart’s favorite website in which the former Postie, Lance lieutenant and eventual Tour rival Tyler Hamilton gives us his end-take on a sordid career of drugs and lies. “It […]

Esteban-Chaves-Orica-GreenEDGE-1

Old man Chavas at Vuelta

  Esteban¬†Chaves is only 25 but he is doing a fabulous imitation of old man Chris Horner in this Vuelta a Espana. The COlombian on Orica-GreenEdge has won two stages while big names like Chris Froome (Sky) have cracked a bit and Tejay van Garderen (BMC Racing) have crashed out. In other words, after eight […]

Rigoberto-Uran-2014-630×419

Where is Cannondale-Garmin going?

  Reading the news that Cannondale-Garmin was perhaps planning to sign Rigoberto Uran (Etixx-Quickstep) and maybe even Pierre Rolland (Europcar), I had to ask myself, what’s going on? Is this a smart rebuild and reload move or some strange, misguided, grab-bag fail? Because it sure feels grab-bag. Then again, maybe we’re just stuck on old […]

Knog Lights hits massive media home run

Tempting to use the word genius and that would debase and dilute the term even further. And yet … we might have to … this is a tight call. Yeah, genius. Know lights, who make very cool little compact and powerful bike lights (and bike locks) just delivered a brilliant advertising campaign right to our […]

Vuelta. Froome pushes Vuelta to top of grand tours

    Javier Guill√©n is a pig rolling in shit. He’s won the grand tour 10 million Euro Superball game. A genie popped out of a lantern or empty bottle of Sangria and gave him all his Vuelta a Espana wishes. With the recent announcement that Tour de France maillot jaune master Chris Froome will […]

Dombrowski cleans up for Canondale-Garmin in Utah

The supposed clean team of pro cycling now had its first doping case and the PR firestorm was intense. There were calls for team boss Jonathan Vaughters to step down […]
