Sometimes the mainstream “gotcha media” misses the true stories. This is never more obvious than the story I found buried in Eurosport regarding the recent Liege-Bastone-Liege. After I translated the story from what I think is French to English (and those who follow my Twitter translations of streaming videos know how spot-on it is) Spanish […]
I got this link courtesy of WIRED Magazine and couldn’t help myself. Katie King skillfully combines both the Beastie Boys Sabotage video and montages from Battlestar Galactica. Sit back and enjoy nerds…
A couple years ago Trek unveiled their 2008 Madone road bike in Madison, Wisconsin. This new Madone was a break from the OCLV frames we’d seen from them in the past, so it was a big deal for the company. The Madone was launched with a lot of fanfare in a theater in downtown Madison […]

Cameron Fox is racing for Sho-Air/Sonace and he contested the tt in this helmet. Fox is a little odd.
Should Tim keep the beard or shave? Share your thoughts. Its 2:00 and Tim (AKA T-Bone) is hitting the beer. This is the first time ever that there is free beer in the media center! Free beer and journalists shouldn’t be mixed together.
I’m at a sponsor’s photoshoot for a compression tight called 2XU. Johnson always the joker, stuck a sock down his tights. That’s what I love about the bike industry. It’s filled with jokers.
