A team sport
by Byron on Jul 18, 2006 at 7:36 PM
Frank detailed the teamwork in today’s tour stage on the Tour de France blog. I get asked that question frequently and how exactly does a team work together? If you didn’t get to watch it, check Frank’s post and the full report from Cyclingnews. That was the best example I’ve ever seen of riders sacrificing themselves, giving up their bikes, water bottles, and giving everything they’ve got for their leaders.

9,000 riders take to Chicago’s streets by night

Late-night ride attracts thousands
At 1:30 Sunday morning, 9,000 cyclists set out on Chicago’s annual Long After Twilight Ends (LATE) ride, a 25-mile circuit ride that starts and ends at Buckingham Fountain, and takes in northside neighborhoods and the Chicago Lakefront Path.
Here’s the only Flickr photo I could find; anyone seen any others?
Update: Here’s the L.A.T.E. Ride’s official site, and here’s a post from someone who rode this year’s.

Welcome John and Kelli, STPers
by Byron on Jul 15, 2006 at 7:04 AM
John Calnan and Kelli Currie are out riding the STP right now and when they get done are going to post about the event, how they did, and more. Both have been posting on their personal blogs: Off to Portland, Sleep eludes me.
Also see Do the Seattle to Portland (STP) ride and Portland Anyone?
While John and Kelli pedal those miles, I’ll be racing with the boys in the Skagit Flats in a Kermesse style race, which is a fast circuit.
Seattle to Portland Blogging

Levi Leipheimer’s Ride to Redemption
by Byron on Jul 14, 2006 at 6:35 AM
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!
