Not With a Whimper But A Bang - Pro Cycling Explodes

For those who have been trolling blog looking for information about doping and professional cycling—today is your day. Over at Cyclists International you can find out about the full 220 Pages of USADA information on Lance’s doping, as well as George Hincapie’s “bombshell” that he doped during his career and Postie Michael Barry doing the same.

I’m sure Lance will have a statement soon saying he had no idea that everyone on his team doped and that they’re all lying about it anyhow.

Some Bloke does F’ing AMAZING things on a road bike

This video is so epic on so many levels. The editing is tight yet subtle, the cinematography is absolutely brilliant, sound editing is well-thought and balanced.

Productive

Help Defend Cycling From Tyrany

Let’s face it folks, the UCI is at best a bumbling pack of fools and at worst a corrupt cadre of dope pushers. The journalist Paul Kimmage wrote about the alleged UCI cover up of the Lanceathon of doping in the late 1990’s-today and is being sued by the UCI. Normally companies sue the publisher of a book instead of the author, but since big publishing houses have money they’re going after Kimmage instead.

The cycling world has come to his aid, and NYVelocity and Cyclismas.com have hosted a defense fund.

It currently sits at about $50,000 but could use all the help we can give it. Pitch in and show the UCI that we’re sick of their bullshit.
