Good racing blogs/reading material available online?

Normal cycling blogs are a dime a dozen out there, but I was wondering if anyone could recommend good blogs or other types of reading material about racing and training to race. I already read CDRs blog but am looking for more interesting reading.

Um...

haha. It's all good. Thing is, are you trying to find how-to stuff, stories, equipment, etc. What you want will direct you to different blogs. Or not. I spend so much time on the blog and here that I barely read any other blogs.

Having said that I read steve tilfords (usually a link off of Doug Report). I'll read redkiteprayer too (ditto with the link). I think I have links to both from my blog as well.

Hah! Poor word choice on my part.
More reading that is interesting is what I meant - not reading that is more interesting. Should have clarified! Sorry

Thanks for the suggestions, though!

I took the optimistic meaning, not the pessimistic one, so I was just having fun. Heh. Got your comment, thanks.
