Lance Armstrong Movie: The Program

Lance is the villain and Walsh the hero, The Program plays like a gangster movie, and just premiered in Toronto with a release in theaters next month. Variety has the story, and the new trailer is above.

The movie, which uses Walsh’s book “Seven Deadly Sins: My Pursuit of Lance Armstrong” as its source, follows Walsh’s pursuit of Armstrong (played by Ben Foster). Walsh (played by Chris O’Dowd) was for many years a lone voice in suggesting Armstrong was doping, and it became a battle of wills between the two. “It did become quite personal because we went back so far,” Walsh told Variety. “I’d interviewed him when he was a kid and I liked him.”

Cross Country and Cross with ENVE

What an edit…and reminded me of the ENVE cross-country wheelset set up for Cross on the Crux, and the story about them in Issue 18.


…the wheel is rad for CX. It’s superlight, but built for offroad use. The other mega benefit is that although the original design was for use with MTB tires, as the trend towards wider rims/tire beds arrived, we ended up with a rim that was somewhat obsolete for MTB use, but ideal for CX tires. It’s a sweet combo.

Really is and that’s for Cross Country or Cyclocross.

RIP: Jerry Baker, Seattle Cycling Icon

Jerry's  Davidson

Jerry Baker has been riding in the Northwest since the roads were dirt, back when shorts were wool, chamois were leather, and you switched gears by removing the wheel and flipping it around.

Today we learned he passed in Pennsylvania at a hospital. We just saw him on a ride two weekends ago and said, “Hello with a wave.” As Phil Miller shared, “There are a lot of very serious cyclists who have arrived in Seattle in the last 15 years or so who may not realize what cycling would have been like without JB.”

The short list includes

  • Cascade BC
  • WA Bikes
  • Seattle To Portland
  • Washington State Bicycle Association.

And the Marymoor Velodrome. Some of the first racing kits worn around here were bought from JB and what sad news this is.

RIP Jerry. After writing this post, Robert Freeman, former co-owner of Elliot Bay Bicycles share this obituary.

Jerry Baker passed away this morning of Acute Myelogenous Leukemia. He had been on holiday in Pennsylvania when he got sick. It progressed very rapidly and he only lasted a few days. Jerry was an icon in Seattle cycling circles. He ran Baker’s Bikes in the 60s and 70s, out of his house. A small but high quality racing shop. He sold frames from Davidson, Hugh Porter, Holdsworth, and others, and built wheels and complete bikes. Then in 1980 he started Baleno, a small wholesale company that had Santini clothing, Rivat shoes, ProTec helmets, and other goods. After that he made custom clothing and was a fabric importer. Jerry was instrumental in getting the Marymoor velodrome in Redmond built in 1972 and rarely missed a night of racing there all these years. Jerry was one of three people who helped organize the first Seattle to Portland race/ride, in 1979, and had the fastest time that year, (beating Dave Shaw and me by 6 minutes). He always claimed to be the only person to have ridden every STP, though freely admits one year it was Seattle to Puyallup. He was a warm, funny person with a heart of gold, and generous to a fault. He will be greatly missed by many people.
