    Really impressed with Ryder. What a fighter. Does Canada proud.

    Contador is not only the most successful GC rider of our time, but the classiest too - bold, attacking, full of style. Can you...

    Here is a trick. Weigh the bare frame without fork. If all 531, it should be around 2000-2200 grams. Helpful when stickers are missing.

    I was on atenolol (beta blocker) for 10+ years, for BP reduction. Didn't notice any side effects, the dose was fairly low (50 mg/day). I stopped taking it because after I started cycling more, my...

    Ten to fifteen riders penalized 10 to 20 seconds yesterday for hanging onto cars. Including Konig and Van Den Broeck. I would guess these were sticky bottle situations.

    Maybe apply the Proofhide to the underside of the saddle.

    I've not had staining issues with my Brooks but I very seldom Proofhide them - maybe 1x year.

    I realized Landa is out of contract this year. Where do you think he ends up? EQS may be looking for a different GC guy? Maybe BMC needs a plan B to TvG?

    Kruijswijk wasn't going to give away a stage, it would have made his career and he was riding very strongly, yet he couldn't respond to Landa's jump either. You let a guy sit in your draft for 10 k...

    It was a heck of a ride! I think he wanted to win the stage too, but didn't have enough left to outsprint Landa. Whether it was thanks to his late gels or what, Landa really took off at the end.

    Nibali has not looked good this spring. Okay, maybe he's had 9% body fat and is still working on his form for the Tour. But seems to me that in the recent past, when Nibali has faced Contador on a...

    Do you know how to lift with your legs, not with your back? A bike only weighs 25 lb or so. Your physical therapist should show you how to lift correctly.
