Levi Leipheimer’s Ride to Redemption

With Landis in yellow, as exciting as that is, I wanted to note that Leipheimer’s ride was equally impressive. All that the tour is was expressed in his ride yesterday. Redeeming oneself after a bad day, gritting your teeth, and riding into glory is done in races everywhere. All the greats have done it and even the not so great. Be it in the tour, your local team ride, or event, getting dropped and coming back another day is part of cycling and fuels this sport.

I agree with Julich who thinks that Leipheimer can top 5 and we may even see 2 Americans on the podium this year.

A massive and confusing stage

by Byron on Jul 13, 2006 at 6:32 AM

The massive mountain stage is on at the Tour de France and it’s hard and confusing. Without a patron, or boss, this year like Lance it’s a free for all and the tactics we’ve seen before (driving the pace and riding your rivals into the ground) aren’t the same. On the Tour de France blog, Frank Steele (a fellow bike hugger) and his readers are trying to make sense of it. Even us veteran fans are puzzled. A leader should emerge today or at least, you’d think one would!

Riding 26 Miles for an Espresso

espresso About 1/2 way through our honeymoon/cycling trip across Southcentral Alaska a couple years ago, I spotted an espresso ahead sign and was like what! It had been days since I’d had good coffee and I mean Seattle-style, dark muddy, depth-charge-in-your-gut espresso and rode 26 miles, ticking off each mile, and noting each sign to get a cup. And it was really good, best cup ever actually.

It was a perfect day for a ride and I rode with Pam to the REI Seattle Women’s CycleFest. Bike Hugger was there with Union Bay Cycling, Wines of Washington Cycling Team to promote the sport to women, give out schwag, and meet all the cyclists.

If we met you there, hello! And thanks for visiting our blog.

Kenny Souza: Natural Power

Hugh Forrest, of SXSW fame, tipped us to Kenny Souza: Natural Power, a full-length documentary currently in production on the course of the 2006 RAAM. I couldn’t think of a better documentary topic, what those racers put their bodies through is incredible (including riding through sleep-deprived hallucinations), and the documentary will capture, “the sacrifice, discipline and focus needed to undertake such an amazing journey.”

Highlights from the blog include Bob Roll and Ned Overend encouraging Kenny along the route.

Also see my post on “another fine day for riding” in Austin during SXSW earlier this year.
