"Race well, race with dignity, race with a conscience:" Sprinter Della Casa proposes USAC policies to punish intentionally dangerous riders, and reminds us that there are some people who take our down-home amateur sport far too seriously - to the detriment and danger of those around them.
I twitter. I apologize.
Everybody's favorite racer, Fabian Cancellara (he's up there with Hincapie and Jens Voigt on everybody's Awesome list, partly due to this stage win), recently won the World Time Trial Championship. He completed the the 49.8 kilometre course in 57:54. That gives him an average speed of 51.5kph, or 32mph, for a whole damn hour. What will it take to get this man on a velodrome to go after the Hour Record?
Yesterday, I rode a friend's custom Johnny Coast (this one, in fact), and was delighted at how soft and comfortable it rode.
Cycling Art reflects on descending, and one of my favorite scenes from this year's Giro d'Italia.
VeloGogo has the best picture of Reynolds' carbon clincher that doesn't use a traditional hook to hold the bead. Hmm. Go figure.
And finally, Hipster Nascar gives a pretty good look at what fixed gear bikes companies are showing at Interbike. I offer a cringe at the decision to display the Bianchi Super Pista with Aerospokes and a thumb's up to Fuji's line, which offers some nice options on the performance end of the spectrum.
