The Impossible Hour.

Fresh off this blog’s hiatus I bring to you Already Broken News. Which means this post is way behind the current cycling news cycle. But I like the idea so much that I still wanted to write about it. The speculation over the likes of Spartacus and Tony Martin attempting the hour record were put... Continue Reading →

There will Never be Another Merkcx

Peter Sagan crossed the line first (again), telling all his critics to...do the running man, as he won without the aid of the Fabulous Canellara. Actually, Sagan was so dominant, without following sucking wheels, that he had time to look back, then celebrate in the final meters. Sagan is showing that he may indeed be... Continue Reading →

Being Fabs

Cancellara did the right, if not unexpected thing by attacking in the final K of today's stage. Normally, the wearing of the Golden Fleece does their best to stay out of trouble, hang in and finish with the group so in order to maintain the jersey. It's rare that you see that same person take... Continue Reading →

Prologue

I watched the last half of the Prologue  coverage on NBC -- Versus -- Uniwhatever this morning. Watching TTs are boring, except for when they show someone charging toward the line with their mouths wide open and their eyes gone cross. What I really wanted to see, what I was putting off breakfast for, was... Continue Reading →

Bruyneel’s Luck

There was some ballyhooing about yesterday's Ronde being a boring. I say NONSENSE! We just had to wait a while for it to happen. A select three man group (might be a stretch with Ballan, but...) is pretty exciting. Did I miss the Muur? You bet, but I'm not sure the race would have turned... Continue Reading →

Perilous Podiums Predictions

I'm not much into the prediction game. Bike racing is a fickle mistress and strong legs often fall to a turn of bad luck. Still, I couldn't help but think about what the Flanders podium will look like after I saw that Peter Sagan took today's DePanne stage.  I read that Sagan isn't even on... Continue Reading →

Great Battles are in Our Future.

For the past week the PRO Peloton has been traversing France and Italy, North to South, and West to East. Wiggians found the top step of a road podium -- which bodes well for Tour prospects. Provided his team isn't run ragged by working for or defending both Yellow and Green. Which, in this age... Continue Reading →

Wild Speculations

There's not a whole lot going on around these parts. There's no road racing to be had, and most of the cycling news is centered around Cyclocross. A pursuit your author doesn't partake in, and therefore pays little attention to the comings and goings of six or so people who win cross races. Given the... Continue Reading →
