I said “fuck Valverde” on Wednesday and I’ll say it again today. It’s just not right. Every other rider’s heaving their lungs out and the Movistar shit just crosses the line cool as a cucumber.
I’ve never cared for him but apparently he is donating all this last weeks prize money to the Scarponi family. Class move. Chapeau Alejandro!

Liverpool for the FA cup and Man Utd for the champions league too.
I run front/rear lights at all times when on open roads. At this time of year, with the sun at odd angles, it blows my mind that many cyclists don’t use lights. I was out yesterday and I EXPECT (meaning I look for them in order to pass them in a very safe manner) to see cyclists and saw three different groups of proper road cyclists i…
I rode without any sunscreen on the other day. Soon I will begin to think about donning some arm warmers.
Yup, no sunscreen, that’s always a watershed, isn’t it? then it’s knee or legwarmers. Cap under helmet. Gilet. Overshoes. Winter bike. Full winter kit of many layers. Co-workers incredulous that you rode. Bring it on.[Read more]

Wow. Glad that’s over. There are many many things that don’t sit well with me regarding this event. I applaud the riders for enduring a 6 hour crit, and hope the UCI folks each enjoy the payoff money they took for selling out cycling.
I’m afraid it’s only going to get worse and not just in cycling. Everybody wants a slice of Mid…[Read more]
Once you feel like a Cyclist again, then the razor can and must come out, because no matter how often you may try to convince yourself otherwise, that shit just don’t belong.
That’s my mantra. If you are shaving legs and riding like shiet than you feel like a real impostor. Once that corner gets turned, then looking down to see hai…

Although a Gold for Ireland in cycling would be a good thing
- Dan Martin
Dan Martin is about as Irish as I am Bulgarian and yet somehow we both sound like we come from Birmingham.
Some goober’s gonna combine Strava with Pokemon Go and the end days will come. (Stravamon Go?)
We can hunt Strackachu’s and Giannisaurs!
( no I have never played it but I glean from social media that this is what you do)
Does anyone want to pitch in on the pure unadulterated evil of live Strava segments on the new Garmins?
Unlike actual pure unadulterated evil you can just not enable it. Or disable it if you have it enabled. Simples.
Looks like Froome’s been practising his descending. Pedalling away while sitting on the top tube a la Sagan.
Looks like Froomie has just won a LOT of new fans today. I was NEVER a fan of his but I have to give the man his due. THAT was fun and exciting racing–two words that I have never bef…
Its as though some of you have never visited this site before. The question/comment regarding the spider monkey should be phrased like this;
“Who gives a fuck if he’s fast or not, he looks hideous!!”
It won’t be long before somebody says that it doesn’t matter what you look like as long as you can lay down some V. And then we r…[Read more]

Lame sexist shit perhaps. Misogynist is rather a strong word. I very much doubt that making a joke about a stereotypical female running a bit late equates to Harminator actually hating women.
It seems that Tommeke might be planning on going out on a high note…
“…winning Roubaix for the 5th time, that’s the only reason I’m still racing.”
Thanks for posting that. Awesome stuff and it lead on to a whole bunch of other great vids.
My new dark horse pick … Phil Gaimon. 6’1″ and 148 pounds. The perfect build for L’enfer du Nord.
Just read this and I am moved to note that he’s also an exceptionally nice young man to boot. Last September on a very hot Saturday afterno…[Read more]
From the scant evidence of that inconclusive video I totally refuse to believe Cancellara is using a motor. Having seen how he wins races throughout his long and storied career I’m confident that what he does in that clip he’s quite capable of doing without resorting to an engine in his fra…
I’m rarely moved to comment on here though I always read the articles but fuck me the sheer amount of casually deliberate in that lead picture almost gave me a boner. Almost.
Regarding lids…LAS Victory ftw. Sure its not aero. Its light, its Italian and its the best looking lid out there.
I have a question. Anyone who lnows please chime in but I am guessing that Frank or maybe Chris O knows. On the TTT the time is taken when the 5th man crosses the line yes? So what if you are left with only 4 riders by the time you get to start the TTT ? Is the team out? Because technically they wont have completed the stage ? Or am I bein…[Read more]
With Kittel out of Sheldeprijs, surely the Gorilla is odds on.
If he were racing he might well be odds on.
