Velominatus: Bianchi Denti

Order: Level 2 Velominatus

@Bianchi Denti's activity:

First run in 2002, the GP de Plouay-Bretagne is part of the women’s UCI World Cup series.  It’s 4.5 laps totaling 121km. As usual, there is little information or publicity for yet another women’s UCI race. Here is a start list. Here is the official French website. And yes, Ms. Vos won the last two editions. We regret the lack of...

Did everyone got tired of seeing a nearly naked Marcel Kittel on the massage table for the Tour’s VSP page? I know I didn’t. Young Kennaugh will be sporting his British road race jersey and his proper shoe/sock pairing in this Vuelta. Get used to it. Ladies and gentleman we have a race. We have some Giro winners, we have some Tour...

  1. Logic: I can’t see Malmerde, Contador or Fat Carlos making it to the finish.  They’re training for the Worlds, like half the field. I doubt that Horner will be able do anything now that he must be a huge blip on WADA’s radar. Statistically 1 of the big… »

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...

  2. @wiscot Crikey. Look at the focus in Porte’s eyes. “This is our/my big chance. C’mon G, let’s fucking smash it!”. I loved that stage. Anyone else see @Alex under the Malteni flag on the 2nd-to-last secteur? »

  3. @Buck Rogers Indeed. He did extremely well at both Paris Roubaix and Public Relations in 2014. »

  1. @NZ Ledge You are not mistaken. I am the scourge of B-grade in the Hutt Cross series. Are you a local? »

  2. @colnago_fan Nice bike! I race similar, but with Groupsan for cheaper repairs, and celeste hoods and saddle. I notice you still run a front cantilever – do yourself a favour and replace it with a V-brake to eliminate the fork shudder. And if you haven’t… »

  3. Sweet article @brett. Cross rocks! »

  1. Both Schlecks in Trek’s TdF squad! Unbelievable. Shows what a shallow roster Trek has. If either of these clowns wins anything after the form they have shown over the last 2 years, that team needs to be disbanded. Needed to get that in before @Brett did…. »

The Bike. It is the central tool in pursuit of our craft. A Velominatus meticulously maintains their bicycles and adorns them with the essential, yet minimal, accoutrement. The Rules specify the principles of good taste in configuration and setup of our machines, but within those principles lies almost infinite room for personal taste.It seems in s...

  1. @ChrisO I can verify that. Something about flags on motos? Maybe if the DSs had heard it too, we wouldn’t have the current controversy. »

  2. Purito out, Cadel in. Fuck it. VSP PICKS (2nd Rest Day Swaps): 1. Nairo Quintana 2. Evans 3. Pozzovivo 4. Uran 5. Niemiec »

  1. Regular stretching, foam roller for the ITB and occasional visits to the same Josh. As a long-term sufferer of lower back pain, to the extent that my glutes had basically “turned off”, I can’t recommend massage from a skilled practitioner highly enough. … »

@Bianchi Denti's posts:

  1. Movistar look much stronger than Katusha in TTs and in the hills, so Nairo will win. Cadel won’t be able to climb with the youngsters, which will also cause Sanchez to lose time. Pierre Rolland’s presence without a strong team is confusing. So he will p… »

  1. @jeyrod   OK, that list has PF-P in it. But it doesn’t have Vos or Brand, and it has 2 guys racing for their women’s team (Scully and Henao). I’m just saying there seems to be a lot of start lists to choose from, they aren’t consistent, and they aren’t… »

  1. Wow. Won by someone who wasn’t even on the start list! And PF-P is my go-to rider too. If there is one thing that women’s cycling could do to increase spectator awareness, it would be to publish accurate bloody start lists!!! »
