My favourite sport is reading. Love the 'Grand Tours' because above all, they are at worst, small narratives. Live by the ocean, cycle only for fun and I'm not good or brave, but as a sport it beats all but the ones that take place in the ocean.

Robbie McEwen Retires

This is a video of McEwen's last day as a pro. I thought often about writing a tribute piece, but it would have been laced with hyperbole and schmaltz. So thanks to Dan Jones. Cyclingtips has also done a fantastic tribute piece, with lots of great photography.

Oh Linus, what has Veeral done to you?

TDU Stage 5 Live (later): Willunga, the hill that is not a mountain

There are few guarantees today. However, your money would be safe if you said that O'Grady would drive the peloton and seeing as Flatty took the pic, I felt compelled to use it. Mr O'Grady is...

Green Edge released its official (for real this time) kit - what do we think of it?
