Neener Neener

A column by eminent Sporza commentator Karl Vannieuwkerke about the Keisse case, google-translated. Title 'Sliepuit' means neener-neener. No time to do a full translation myself, might still help out with unclear phrases.

Signs of Cycling. A roundabout in a small town in central Holland with a free-lying cycle path and road signs for cycling. Red asphalt is used for cycle lanes in the Netherlands. The blue sign means that it is a mandatory cycle path: cyclists must use it, and it's only for cyclists. The numbered sign is for a "knooppunt", part of a network of regional, touristy cycle routes with numbered nodes. The red signs are for pointing cyclists to nearby towns, with distances in km.

Tour de France 2010 route mapped

The Tour organisation traditionally provides quite some detail on the route they are taking, as they did for the 2010 route. I was able to use that info to map all of the 21 stages (including the...

Cervelo CEO proposes conditional pension funds

9

Five articles with different anti-doping ideas by Gerard Vroomen, owner of Cervélo. Number five, the most recent, says to put riders' surplus salaries in some sort of (pension) fund that would redistribute pay-out on positive tests. I can think of a few objections to that.

Cassani thinks motorised doping is real

Link is to a RAI report of stage 18 of the Giro d'Italia. From 13:48 to 17:10 (you can skip by dragging the marker) Davide Cassani shows a racing bike with built-in electro motor. Says he went 50 km/h without problems. Confirms that the builder has had some pros as client … "Senza parole!" Summary in English on a blog. Thanks to @smaryka for the links.

Some choice quotes from the Schlecks: "Once you had a climber, Robert Millar, who was a vegetarian." -- "Now he is a lady." "The sky is not the limit if there are footprints on the moon." "It's like in cycling: if you want something big, you have to be patient." More like this

Today was a good day for a recovery ride which gave me time to take some pictures. I thought the international audience might be interested in seeing this collection of road signs, nine of them, all for cyclists! The map shows where you are on the provincial grid of touristy cycling routes ("Knooppuntennetwerk"). More pics of the ride on Flickr.
