The stones have dirt in between them some sweeping or blowing wouldn’t be effective. Plus the lead cars and motorcycles that roll thru first were kicking up dust that was settling on the stones. Someone said on a podcast that it’s the dry season there ... more »

That’s good to hear about the dual sport ride. I plan to pickup a DS bike sometime in the near future. I can 100% relate to the leg over the seat part. 2 days before my surgery I took my KTM 200 for a couple of laps around the block since it’ll be while ... more »

We used to catch and release them when I was a kid just to hook a big fish while bank fishing. My mother told us never to bring them home to eat because she wasn’t raising white trash,

That sucks about Uran losing time today. If there is any hope for anything but a Sky domination it will take GC contenders on different teams to work together with attacks in the mountains. Funny, that’s what they used to say about Armstrong and US Postal. ... more »

Sagan is the best thing to happen to Pro Cycling in a very long time. After today I think Froome will win this TdF handily with Sky dominating the pace in the mountains. Hell, Geraint Thomas may end up 2nd. Movistar did look good today. I was wrong with ... more »

“Patron” in Spanish, “Don” in Italian, ”Boss” in English. Armstrong himself was definitely a don of the peloton in his day. Hinault a famously strong don. As was Merckx. Contador and Indurain, both reserved personalities, but each had the patron status ... more »

Stage 9 with all the cobbled road sections is like throwing in an Erzberg Rodeo stage in the middle of the Dakar Rally. I wonder if some of the GC contenders will see their Yellow Jersey goals fade to bleak on Sunday? That’s what is being said by former ... more »

The first week of LeTour is the same as A1 in SX. No one wins the title there but many have lost because of it. That’s what made Armstrong’s run so amazing to me. He was an arrogant ahole but owned the padron title in the peloton. Having big George Hincapie ... more »

Any guesses which GC riders will get a good jump on the 2nd trip up the Mur de Bretagne today? If Valverde has legs he could blast off. Man, there will be fireworks for positioning to set up for that climb. The road is very tight Velonews. https://www.velonews.com/2018/07/tour-de-france/tour-de-france-expect-gc-action-on-mur-de-bretagne_472123

Thanks. I rode with a few guys in Georgia who tried to make the big jump to race track or road in Europe. Most stayed in Belgium or Holland. The stories they came back with about how hard the racing was in the north were fantastic. “On the rivet from ... more »

I’ve done this at a couple of stages of the Giro d’Italia. It’s a big party and a good time. Even hucking it up Euro-style on the side of Brasstown Bald for the Tour of Georgia was a great time. I’d like to see a classic in Belgium one day. Tour of Flanders ... more »

Valverde and Nibali have performed well on the cobbles. I agree that stage 9 will eliminate some GC contenders before the mountains even begin. I can’t see Quintana doing well and he’s already down due to the TTT and broken wheels at a bad time. Sky ... more »
