Sorry, who's an idiot? VanSummeren?

I'm amazed when I read this kind of ignorace. We were just chatting about similar prejudice with Quitana. Yeah, you won much respect with Roubaix, but one shouldn't forget how quickly it can be lost. Re: Astarloza going alone with 40km remaining in Amstel: "He [Astarloza] is such an idiot" ..."Well, he is a Spaniard. It's not for nothing that they have great economic crisis. It's what happens when you don't use your head."

2013 Movistar Kit

5

All blue with the neon "blobject - M" Movistar logo. No white at all as far as I can tell from the pics in the store. I preferred it with the white sides as it looked more traditional (except the weird asymmetrical shoulder treatment). This is very minimal. Not bad, but I liked the White.

Paris Roubaix Tees

11

I've seen some art and such for sale before, so I hope it's cool to post these on here. I've been working on a Tee design for Roubaix and this is what I came up with. We're going to print a small run if people wanna get in on them. We'll be donating $2 of every shirt sold to Les Amis de Roubaix cause they keep the cobbles going. Any Feedback is appreciated, and thanks for checking them out!

I was away on vacation for a week so perhaps this has already been discussed, (but a quick search turned up nothing). It appears official, now, that Valverde will return with Movistar for 2012. h...

I don't understand how you can feel that way about Lance, or why.

There has been a lot of talk about Lance lately, understandably. To me, this is further confirmation of something that I have suspected for a number of years and leaves me feeling somewhat sane....

Feedback Please - European cycle tour.

Ok, I'm off to Europe again to ride, ride, ride my bike and since it's so heavy around here with all the Landis-HHSNBN business, I figured I'd talk about something that makes me happier than that....

Iginla willing to waive no-trade clause

"If they don’t want me here and they want to move in a direction or rebuild or believed they could do better, I would look at it," the Calgary Flames captain said Wednesday as the players packed up their belongings at the Pengrowth Saddledome. "Absolutely. You want to play where you’re wanted and have people believe in you."

"I really don’t care how many one-way contracts we have. … I think there’s six kids in (the summer development) camp who are going to knock the (crap) out of some guys for jobs, and I love it. That’s the way it works. Simple. And I don’t have any problem with that. That’s part of being a really good hockey team. The kids have pushed to the point where someone, who everybody thinks is on our team, is not on our team."—GM Darryl Sutter, talking with the Calgary Herald about his team’s makeup for the coming season.
