La Rabobank peaufine ses réglages

Because it just sounds so much better in French. Because it reminds me of old Sixties Spy Films. And because we need a thread to dump general pre-Worlds info about women's racing. Rabobank have...

Dutch Roads gettiing ready voor de Worlds

4

It's painful to see this happen to the little streets of the Netherlands, but according to the rules of the Worlds, all roads must be a minimum width. Here's a report from local TV station L1 Limburg showing one such victim being "cured". And bookmark this page from the same station for what looks likely to be lots of background news stories coming up next week.

Ride High? Ride Low? Tour de l'Ardeche and Brainwash Ladies Tour

It's the end of the season now, and for those looking to be on their best form for the Worlds there are two vastly different races to choose from to get that last little bit of preparation in your...

So who's Joe's mystery Aussie?

22

Lots of talk about omerta recently, but we're probably all guilty of ignoring stuff from time to time. Joe Papp dropped a none too subtle hint on his Twitter account that Jeannie Longo's husband was one of his clients a full year before ther story hit both the mainstream and the cycling press. Are we going to wait just as long for this story to come out in the open, or is it time for some baseless speculation over this comment he recently left on Gerard Vroomen's blog? there were several other very high profile clients of mine who they chose not to bring charges against, mainly b/c, while there was evidence of their guilt, there wasn’t the same kind of overwhelming evidence that characterized the other prosecutions. So one of those riders, an Australian, is still racing, winning and making $$$ on the bike today (in large part b/c he followed the personal security and anonymity best practices we documented for our clientele…). There was still reliable evidence that implicated him in doping violations, but not enough for USADA’s standards, which set the threshold so high that they don’t end-up wasting time or $$ on cases that are anything but a sure thing.

Emma finally catches me. She sees I’m in trouble, even offers a gel, but I have plenty – just no more leg muscles. She offers to drag me to the village where it will be flat for a while, but there is still a lot more climbing so I tell her to go on, and that she can catch the others ahead. She was very strong.

Tour de Free State photoshoot

11

To promote this forthcoming race, the South African women's team put on their best floaty gossamer and headed out for a photo shoot on the Savannah. As you do. Is it sad that I didn't really recognise anyone until I squinted a bit and tried to imagine them wearing a helmet, lycra and splashed with mud. They've even tried to tome down those hard won tan lines.
