Bike Ride? Anyone?

I'm not sure of the statistics of PdC membership is Pennsylvania, but if anyone is interested in getting together for a no-frills ride, I'll be on family vacation week of August 2 up in...

VN: VeloCenter Extra Chris Horner Interview


I don't know about ya'll, but I've been watching these VeloNews videos in the evenings. This one is pretty good and includes some emotion from Chris Horner, who, most of us agree, gives great interviews.

Andy falls in training. Link goes to a CN article which includes a link to a twitter pic.

Tata Consultancy Services? Can anyone else picture that on a redneck's trucker ballcap? Q: What do you do? A: I'm a Tata Consultant.

CN: Leukemans talks with Vacansoleil


Oh man! Please let him sign with an American team! I will so rock the "Bjorn in the USA" VDS team name!

CN: Cofidis renews for 2 years


You gotta love PR guys: "We remain in cycling because we haven't found anything better in sport to promote our brand," said Thierry Vittu, the director of Cofidis Competition.

Bahati Foundation new Kit


Obviously, he took some inspiration from his days at Rock.


NAHBS 2010: Bike Porn (SFW)

Well, I'm at home with a sick youngin' today so I found some time to organize some images from the North Atlantic Handmade Bike Show held recently in Richmond, VA.  What a great weekend.  Saw some...


NAHBS '10: The Setup

As previously reported, the 2010 version of the North American Handmade Bike Show is in Richmond, VA from 2/26-2/28 and since it's only 1:20 from my driveway to the Greater Richmond Convention...

VN: LeMond free to irritate Armstrong


Is this LeMond/Armstrong/Andreau/Trek/VO2Max/Testa thing fixin' to get weird?

AG2R - La Mondiale Presentation


Brief story and pics from Cycling News. I don't care what ya'll say, I dig the brown and blue kit.

SunGard signs on as sponsor for Team Saxo Bank


SunGard? Never heard of 'em. Perhaps I'm hanging around the wrong $5 billion annual revenue exceeding circles.

London: Team SKY Presentation


All's I can say's a good thing they're riding Pinarellos.



VeloNews is reporting September 18-19, 2010 for the US Pro Champs. weekend. I'm so there. USA Cycling mentions it here. Cycling News has it here.

Giro 2010 -- Cunego Phones It In


I was drive-by lurking during the Giro route presentation threads this morning. I found this short article over at CN re: the Little Prince - the presentation's been over for, like, a minute and he's already saying he's in for stages. Sounds like our Puppy ain't so scrappy.


U.S. Pro Championships: Preview? Anyone?

Last year I was all gung-ho and stuff on-account-a I was actually going to the race and what not, so I painstakingly built my very first RR Preview post.  This year, Q.T. with the family prevents...

Chris "The Total Package" Horner


I'm always torn whether or not I agree with "it ain't bragging if it's true", but I think Chris is right on with his self assessment in this interview with Neal Rogers (Velonews) I especially liked "When a team signs me, they understand they are getting a rider that can help do leadouts — just ask any sprinter I’ve ever ridden with. I can help win a team time trial. I can go top 10 in a time trial when I am going well. I can ride with the best climbers in the world. I can save races tactically."

Renshaw gets some props


Short article from VeloNews echoing what we've been saying here for the past several weeks...Mark Renshaw is an artist.


ROAD RACE: Nat'l Champ. Repository

Hey everyone, not that I mind the witty banter around here, but I'd to keep this limited to the various men's Road Race results going on around the planet.  Please "Rec" it, and I'll keep it...


TT: National Champs Repository

I just read over on Cycling News that Marco Pinotti has won his fourth Italian Time Trial Championship and figure maybe we can we use this post to keep track of all of the National Championship...

O/T: Rangers win Scottish Premier League Cup


If you've ever been to Scotland for more than 5 minutes, you are pretty much required to declare a team loyalty. In the not to distant past, I spent the odd occasion (or three) doing "work related stuff" slightly north of Glasgow in the quaint village of Helensborough. Hanging out with the locals, I soon came to realize, I was in Rangers country. So, there it is...Go 'Gers!

Steve Larsen Died


Remember before "Cyclsm Sundays" on VS, when OLN first started? About the time it took off, Steve was doing these goofy commercials for Mongoose bicycles. RIP Steve. I'll pray for your family.

LA sports WC Stripes, again. I thought I saw it on the RAI coverage today but wasn't sure, until now.

O/T: Pozzovivo Wins!


Domenico is one of the up-an-comers I took a gamble on my VDS squadra. That's all...just thought I'd share that with someone.


MSR: Updated Start List

If you care, here is a link from VeloNews with updated Milan-San Remo Start List as well as previous years winners. Is that 75 words yet?  Does SB Nation consider hyphenated words (i.e. "Milan-San...

Cervelo Test Team to ToM


VN reports the Cervelosians to make an appearance in this year's edition of the Tour of Missouri along with Liquigas, Garmin and Columbia. Sounds like an opportunity for the mid-west PdC contigent to show off their field reporting skeeeelz.

Psst, Jimbo...affordable Pinarellos.


The Pez himself reports on the latest "affordable" option for Prince pedalling aspirees.

Armstrong Fits In


In an effort to maintain his anonymity, LA will be hiding in the peloton astride his "decidedly more somber black and grey" ride than his team issue Astana'd Madone 6.9.
