77 Degrees February 22nd 02-23-2017
Yesterday was pretty nice.  It was approaching 80 degrees, which is about 20 degrees above the normal high of 58.  Even 58 seems like it is high for February.  I guess that winter is sort of winding down. Most my gang here in Topeka is sick-ish.  Bill, Catherine, my […]
Innovation in Cycling Interests Me 02-22-2017
I was over at Doug Report and saw an article that Cycling Weekly did about innovation in cycling.  It varied from Campy quick releases to neoprene shoe covers.  One thing listed was aero position by Graeme Obree. Graeme Obree is an interesting guy.  Not accepted by the […]
Lance’s Podcasts 02-21-2017
I saw that Lance did a new podcast interviewing his old/new teammates before the 24 Hour of Old Pueblo.  I’m actually in a bit of a hurry today, so didn’t get a chance to listen it yet, but am gonna. I have heard a few of Lance’s podcasts, not all.  I’ve […]
WADA Puerto Blood Bag Issues 02-20-2017
I saw an article last week about WADA’s legal issue, thus worry, with the blood bags it got from Operation Puerto.   The World Anti-Doping Agency got the blood bags from the Spanish courts back in July of 2015.  Since then they have sat on the information they have. […]
24 Hour Update 02-19-2017
There is only a couple hours left in the 24 Hour of Old Pueblo.   I’ve been following the results on and off.  Vincent, Jed and Company had some physical issues, so they decided health was more important than playing in the desert. Seems like Lance’s team is […]
24 Hours in the Old Pueblo Starts Today 02-18-2017
Today is the start of a 24 Hour MTB race outside of Tucson.  I wish I was there.  I wouldn’t have thought I would normally think that, but I got the pleasure of doing the event two years again and was surprised about how great it was.  As an event and as a life […]
Picking the Right Line 02-17-2017
Bill and I, plus a few others spread out over a few days, have been riding back and forth to Lawrence on gravel.  It is one of my favorite rides, super scenic and pretty hard.  It is a nice ride to do if it is windy out, since there is some shelter, in places. Anyway, […]
Descending Like Sagan 02-16-2017
I did a post a while a go about “the new” way Sagan was descending.  And it might not have been so new, but for sure, Peter Sagan made it possible for this style to become way more common.   Funny how that works. Descending on your top tube isn’t for […]
Radios, Disc Brakes & Lance’s Lawsuit 02-15-2017
I saw a couple weeks ago that USAC ruled that we, as in all Cat. 1/2’s can use radios again in all races.  I hate that.  I don’t like much anything about radios in bike races.  The idea that radios make a race safer is total BS.  It is a way for team directors […]
Elizabeth Elhers 02-14-2017
Sue’s mother passed away last week.  It was expected, but unexpected at the same time, as all deaths are. I’ve known Sue’s parents most of my adult life.  I met them at the time when, even if you were riding on a Pro team, you were transient and were […]
