I don't care anymore.

Pellizotti back in the peloton

He of the curly locks signs with Savio's team, which has also had its primary sponsor guarantee funding through at least next year. No Giro; Pellizotti's first race back will be the Circuit de Lorraine.

Fugly out of Giro

Understandable, but still disappointing. The RadioShack team has been hyping him being their Giro leader since before the calendar even turned to 2012. I was looking forward to seeing what he had riding for himself.

Vuelta a España announces wildcards

Pretty safe choices: Argos-Shimano, Cofidis, Andalucia, and Caja Rural. First time Argos-Shimano rides two Grand Tours in the same season in their history.

Giro d'Italia mountains jersey now blue

Can't say I like this. It made perfect sense to have the secondary jersey classifications be the colors of the Italian flag (the old purple jersey for the points class was just ugly as sin), and the blue jersey is just perfect for the leader of Tirreno-Adriatico as well. I guess it still can be, but the uniqueness is part of what made it special. Bottom line, this is gonna take some serious getting used to.

Kevin Van Impe retires with immediate effect

Says his heart is no longer in it. Also, I never heard that story about dope testers tracking him down when making funeral arrangements for his child. That's beyond low.

I don't know, maybe it's because I'm subscribed to the Giro's facebook feed, but that race of all races is always on my mind. I've already done one post on the Giro, fan-gushing, and will surely do...

Tour of California teams list

LeoShack and OmegaStep both invited, as if there were any doubt. Horner vs. Levi is on. GreenEDGE, 1t4i, and Colombia-Coldeportes also in.

On hypothetical CAS judicial activism

Sincerest apologies, but yeah, this is gonna be sticking in my craw for a little while.

Already dreaming of the Giro

Is it too early for a post like this? Nahh, it's never too early to dream of the Giro. Especially not with the teams already announced. While we won't know exact squads for a couple of months, of...

Oh come on

Even if he was the dopingest doper who ever doped (which he probably wasn't), banning him from sportives now smacks of hubris. Dude hasn't been a competitor for six years. What purpose does this actually serve? I guess you could say I feel the same way about his results being stripped. C'mon, what's done is done.

Also-pedaled

So Philippe is the rider of the year in a runaway. I'm guessing nobody really has a problem with that. Who's your silver medal? I didn't include an 'other' option because jesus, if it's not one of...

Noob level cyclocross questions

Okay, so I've seen a fair number of posts extolling cyclo-cross. As someone who still doesn't really get it, could you help me understand a few things?

Let the jersey-honoring begin

Cav confirmed for Paris-Tours, may ride Giro del Piemonte and Giro di Lombardia.

What does this year's Vuelta mean?

Wasn't it just before this Vuelta that everyone was saying it would have one of the strongest fields of any Grand Tour in recent memory? This was going to be the revenge of Jurgen Van Den Broeck...

Garcia Dapena on doping at the 2010 Vuelta

Says he and Zeke were friends, but "never shared anything more than friendship." No organized doping at Xacobeo.

Mosquera out of Vuelta

So why was he even kept under contract? To keep his points for the ProTeam license?

Projecting Vuelta a España wildcards

I'm a big fan of cycling, and of predicting things...and of pretending that I know what I'm talking about. It's always interesting and fun to me to see if I can correctly handicap what's coming....
