The race of the funny hat.Every team seems to have included one or two riders fresh off the Tour. One would either feel ruined or unbeatable a week after that slug fest, more than likely, ruined. I imagine there are a few riders dodging calls from their directors this week. Continue reading...

It has been many years (25!) since professional female cyclists have raced on the cobbles of the Champs Elysées. While running the Giro Donne concurrently with the Tour de France makes no sense to me, this Sunday’s women’s race does make sense. It should be the model for a Women’s Tour de France: the route, infrastructure, roadsi...

  3. Podium picks are set, but 4 and 5 I just don’t know.  Too many options.  Would like to put Tejay in there, but two Americans in the top 5 doesn’t seem possible. VSP PICKS: 1. Contador 2. Froome 3. Nibbles 4. Valverde 5. Talansky »

  1. Thanks for the history lesson and the recommendation for Cycles Laurent.  I’m heading to Paris in a couple of weeks and was going to ask if there was a shop I should check out. »

The Ride. It is the cathedral of our sport, where we worship at the altar of the Man with the Hammer. It is the end to our means. Indeed, The Bike may be the central tool to our sport, but to turn the pedals is to experience the sensation of freedom, of flight. It is all for The Ride.The world is overflowing with small, twisty roads that capture ou...

Here are a few lessons learned while in New York City. I’m sure leaving a bar at one o’clock in the morning is not how the serious riders prepare for a ride with a 9 o’clock morning roll-out. I am sure. Conversational pace for a group ride means different things to different people. Eddy could talk your ear off at 40kph. Lezyne mini-pump owne...

  1. Has the VSP standing been updated recently?   I’m still seeing my in the lead with 43 points and I know that isn’t right.  I’ve tried clearing my browser cache to make sure I’m not seeing an old page. »

  2. Resubmitting.  I see my post with the picks listed, but don’t see them in the VPS picks list. VSP PICKS: 1. Dan Martin 2. Valverde 3. Gilbert 4. Nibali 5. Kwiatkoski »

  1. @Teocalli Happened to me once on a quick transition from downhill to up.  Realized too late I was still in 10th gear and fell sideways in slo-mo.  My buddy did not wait and I could hear him laughing as he went on up the hill. »
