Mind of a Champion.

The Vuelta has ended with Alberto Contador taking the overall. This is his first victory after his ban for Clenbuterol. An event that was filled with all the drama and corruption, that we will now forever associate with these events.  That makes a total of five Grand Tour wins, making him one of the best riders...

Nobody Cares About the Vuelta.

Nobody cares about the Vuelta. Which is a shame, because I'm sure I would find it a very beautiful race if I wasn't so concerned with my own riding. By the end of the tour I experience PRO fatigue.

The Giro is wrapping up this week, and what should be a celebration of the sport, is ending up as just another ring in a circus. It seems that the PRO ranks have hit a bit of rough spot, and while April is the supposed to be thehttp://www.cbsnews.com/8301-504803_162-20064406-10391709.html?tag=stack ,cruelest month, May is turning out to...
