Just turning left isn’t our thing to do on a bike, but respect the athletes that race track. In this video, Sir Bradley Wiggins crosses the line 5cm ahead of Iljo Keisse to take a dramatic victory in the Elimination at Revolution Round 2 in Manchester. Wiggo won with a perfectly timed, high speed “hand-sling” by his teammate to exchange places.
The mountain biking image in a NYT article today about slowing the aging process with exercise, reminded me to share the Mosaic Hardtail mountain bike I shot this summer in Colorado. I’ll let the scientists debate how good exercise is, cause we know the answer. The owner of the bike is like 89, older then Ned Overend even, but looks to be in his teens…
“Exercise is good” for your cells, and “more exercise in greater variety” is likely to be even better.
Well, of course, and the reason my friend rides a hardtail? He insists carbon is to fragile for the mountains and the riding he does.
Note: NSFW audio. Just as we’re working on issue 29, about cyclocross, another pump hopping video surfaces….see the original on our YouTube. 29 drops tomorrow.
