That was a two Tony stage, as the AP reports

Germany’s Tony Martin took the stage win Sunday, and France’s Tony Gallopin took the yellow jersey during an up-and-down Stage 9 in the eastern Vosges mountains.

and I rode a new Tarmac like #panzerwagen did; well, not exactly like him, but the bike and here’s the review from issue 12

The Zipp wheels I had with me in Maui earlier this year. A Bianchi like Lars Boom rode, the Bianchi Infinito CV, has been shipped to us to demo and we’ll get on that in the next few weeks.



Le Tour Stage 9 Recap: Panzerwagon

Slept in late after a busy week editing our mag and missed stage 8, but up in time for 9 and Panzerwagon!

Alone for about 144km, after riding away from the group, they chased but he held them off. Tony Martin is a “tank” and blitzkrieged the stage.

Le Tour Recap Stage 7: We’ve Reached Peak Crash

Stage 7 Recap: Andrew Crashlansky and T.J. Van Crasheren can’t keep the rubber side down in Crash Town. A Facebook fan of ours did it a haiku version

Issue 14 Another Adventure

Issue 14

Issue 14 cover

It’s summer time, the Tour is on, days are long, and we’re riding our bikes everywhere. Issue 14 just dropped on the Web and iTunes. The free cover story on the Web edition is about a ride I did with the GT Grade and the industry trend towards adventure and gravel.

The road scene is so broken, roadies are riding off road, that’s what gravel is about.
