Steam Rolled: A TDF Wrap Up.

Congratulations to Wiggo! He crushed the time trials, his team strangled the peloton in the mountains and he gave Cavendish two brilliant lead outs. Wiggins has gotten a lot of (somewhat deserved) shit this year from the press, but he did the proper thing by setting up the World Champ so he could do what... Continue Reading →

Liege

I guess the old 1 -2 isn't always effective. Michele Bartoli bested it back in 97. Just like Phil did last year. The 90s Recognize!
