Number five. So disappointing that it's out of the Olympics. Best track event IMO.


Spartacus for LBL this year?

Riis thinks Fabian should try to win LBL this year.  Me, I'm not so sure.  Spartacus looks pretty skinny for this part of the season, especially in his face.  He just sailed away from select...

Devolder Gossip

Phinney reaching for the rainbow


As reprted in today's live thread, Taylor Phinney posted a 4:15 individual pursuit and is now in the gold medal round later today, as reported in the CA live thread. His competitor will be an Australian named Jack Bobridge, who posted a time 2 seconds slower. As a comparison, Wiggo won gold in Beijing last summer by posting two 4:16s within a couple of hours of each other. Good luck Taylor. Update! Not only reaches for rainbow, but wins it!

Taylor Phinney Interview


Shorter Taylor Phinney: Lots more support with Trek-Livestrong than with Felt, but I didn't really race with Felt. Plus, you test better when you train more. Hope to see great things from him in the future . . .

BMX Olympic Coverage

So NBC aired, or re-aired, the BMX (supercross?) finals last night.  For those who didn't see it, Latvia and France won gold, and crashes occured early and often. The big question on everyone's...


Levi, Levi

Mr. Excitement plans to protest to race jury about his finish.  He lost another 23 seconds today because of some snafu with a motorcycle, and Astana wants the race jury to correct the problem. So,...
