If you are a Pro Cyclist, would you continue to eat steak?


Thought to save a corner of every steak he ate crossed C A Sorensen mind.

Volta ao Algarve. Who, do you think is wearing #1? Contador!


Hey! Somebody pinch me, I think I still sleeping and having nightmares!

Xavier Tondo admits fear.


Xavier Tondo made me thinking, it is not like I didn’t think about this before, but just imagine for a second. You got a dreaded phone call from UCI, and you really, really innocent. What do you do? Say: " I didn’t do anything wrong"? Just to hear: " Yeah! And 100 others who was busted before you" Nightmare situation!

Trent Lowe wants to get 500000 Euros from Slipstream for….( You can feel the blank )


Trent is very under priced, Buy him for your VDS team! Is it how the game played? Ha, Ha!

Race radios … again? POV. Of Eric Boyer, GM of the Cofidis.


So, now DS will have only 3 strings attached to his puppets ( Road Captain and 2 Lieutenants?)

Is it me, or Carlos often looks like he just lost his favorite Teddy Bear?


I am talking about very first pic. But rest of them very nice too!

Riders vote in favor of race radios.


Yeah! Sure! Like UCI is going to listen to some unimportant part of the Cycling - riders!

Stephane Auge decided to retire and become DS.


Somebody at the Café told me, that his name is pronounced like Huge. So during one of the races I was commenting that Huge is in breakaway again. One of my coworkers after quick glance on my comp. monitor, said : " what you talking about? That breakaway is not huge it is only 3 people!" I will miss him in the Peloton and of course in the Breakaways!

PdC is a many thing, but none of them are boring!


For me personally, the most hilarious thing of the year, was when Tedvdw, posted this Bbox pic. as his comment on Phil’s Post about prizes for winners of the Predictors Game. Do you have your favorite comment of the year?

Goodbye Batavus! Hello Ridley!


Every VacansOleil rider, received road and TT bike, from the bike sponsor Ridley. And every rider has choice of the third bike. Sergey Lagutin has choosen the Mountain bike over the Cross one. Sorry, my dear Cross lovers!

O/T Three things I like to never see again!


1. Men in Ugg boots! 2 Men in sandals, wearing socks! 3. Couples in a matching outfits! Even Brad Wiggins with me on the first one!

Why "Chicken" can’t cross the road?


You perfectly know what road I am talking about! The very famous "Second chance avenue" Some people slithered across, some jumped over it, but "Chicken" get repeatedly hit by the bus! Danes love him, we are ready to forgive. Are we? Or not?

"Ex Cobra" has such a intense plans for the first half of the 2011 season!


Please people, be an open minded! He is VacansOleil now after all! And right in the middle of the article the phrase " VacansOleil Tout Squad"! Balm! Pure Balm for my soul!

Bloopers! Do you have 13 min to watch?


Typical slow news day, off season, post.

Harry up people! Contador needs new defense theory!


Looks like the old one, tainted meat theory, sustained killing blow!
