CX Can’t Get Here Soon Enough
by Byron on Jul 09, 2014 at 3:41 PM
After the Boom Tour stage today, we’re thinking of CX! That’s a few weeks earlier than normal and bikes like this one from Cannondale are on our minds, as seen PressCamp in Deer Valley last month.
See the rest of the photos on G+ and our CX coverage will start in a few weeks.
Le Tour Recap: Stage 4 BOOM
by Byron on Jul 09, 2014 at 10:15 AM
On a day that Cancellara said the Tour needs to rethink the sport, Ben King tweeted
And I was tipped to a CX bike setup…
Considering bike handling, Froome probably should’ve have started. Can’t steady a bike on slick roads with a busted-up wrist. I didn’t expect he get over the cobbles.
Dude Where’s my Bike In Seattle!
by Byron on Jul 08, 2014 at 11:53 AM
With a media frenzy as the first legal pot shop opens in Seattle, we’ve got the idea for a Dude Where’s My Bike?! Tour for next month’s issue of our magazine. Ya know how wine tours are a thing for cyclists? Predicting the same thing with breweries, distillers, restaurants, coffee shops, and Cannabis City in the SODO district of Seattle. There are bike paths and lanes that run right to the shop from downtown and back….
Until then, we’re editing Issue 14 and it’s on digital newsstands and the web later this week.
Le Tour Recap: Stage 4 Tank beats Wolverine
by Byron on Jul 08, 2014 at 11:32 AM
Froome collapsed like an Al dente capellini noodle from a touch of wheels
Immediately I thought, even though it was not my fault, “F * ck, FROOME!
injuring his wrist.

He’s got a body type I can identify with instead of them skinny climbers. Marcel drags himself over the hills to get to the valleys, flats, and sprints. And his hair is always perfect.

Le Tour Selfies: Step Back
by Byron on Jul 07, 2014 at 11:27 AM
2 months ago, Kristof Ramon got this shot of a selfie at the Giro. The taker of it later apologized and that was it. At the Tour, along roads with larger crowds than the historic race has ever seen, selfies are back in the news with Zoe finding herself and her tweet in a Twitter Storm.
Frustrated, and for good reason, Ramunas Navardauskas was seen smacking phones out of fan’s hands (video since removed). As I wrote about the selfies at the Giro, let’s hope the norms of the crowd end this trend and quick. Here’s what Tejay van Garderen had to say…
Le Tour Recap: Another Day and Stage
by Byron on Jul 06, 2014 at 8:33 AM
Maybe it is a new day at the Tour. It’s another stage, of course, and Cavs didn’t start after owning the crash yesterday
“I’m gutted about the crash today. It was my fault. I’ll personally apologize to Simon Gerrans as soon as I get the chance. In reality, I tried to find a gap that wasn’t really there. I wanted to win today, I felt really strong and was in a great position to contest the sprint thanks to the unbelievable efforts of my team. Sorry to all the fans that came out to support – it was truly incredible.”
In the past, a defiant Cavs would’ve said something inflammatory AND gotten taped up, then started.
Stage 2 of the Tour de France saw record crowds for the second day and
Froome looked up to see Nibali win Stage Two.

Watch The Tour Without Phil and Paul
by David Schloss on Jul 05, 2014 at 10:24 AM
Sure, the NBC Sports coverage might be the defacto way to watch the Tour de France, but their dumbed-down race coverage can start to get grating after a while and Bob Roll starts to talk most real cyclists glaze over. Here’s a great way to get improved coverage for just a few bucks a month (and also get access to a world of sporting events not available in the U.S.) by signing up for Eurosport streaming coverage.
If you don’t live in Europe you’ll need to first convince the Internet that you do, and for that we recommend the super-simple service Tunnelbear. Download their Tunnebear app and sign up for a subscription and you can re-route your traffic to a Eurosport-friendly country simply by signing into Tunnelbear.
Once your traffic is routed overseas, simply go to Eurosport.com and sign up for their streaming plan. All you need is a credit card, and they don’t care where the card billing location is.
That’s it, then you can simply stream Tour coverage (or the World Cup or the whole continental series of races) on your computer. Bye bye Phil and Paul, hello valuable and interesting race commentary.
