Mute the music and just watch Sagan do his thing. Man, someone needs to get this guy racing cross again.
On July 22nd, at 8pm E.T., ESPN’s 30 for 30 takes a look at the 1986 Tour and the epic battle between Lemond and Hinault. I can’t wait for this one! See more information at ESPN.
Look, racing is fun, both as a spectator and a competitor, but sometimes, even the most PRO cyclists in the world have to give way for a little bit of ‘corndoggin’.
This just sounds like every ride I’ve ever been on. Now if we can just convince people to put more mountain pedals on their road bikes.
I’ve been following Pedal Strike’s Instagram for a while. There’s something insanely unique about doing portraits of cycling’s icon in common condiments (Lance in BBQ sauce was awesome) that makes it addicting. Her recent Tour de France series is killing it!
Everyone loves “free” and these Paul Smith posters are just that, FREE.
“One reflects Saturday 5th July, the first day of the Tour and when the athletes will cycle 190km from Leeds to Harrogate through the Yorkshire Dales. The second, in green, is Sunday 6th July when they’ll cut a dash over the Peak District from York to Sheffield. The third, bright blue poster accompanies the final stage in the Tour’s visit to the UK, on Monday 7th July, when the peloton will race 155km from Cambridge to London ending on The Mall. After which the Tour will continue in France.”

You don’t have to take my word for it, just pop on over to Vital MTB and check out their race coverage. SO GOOD. Day 1 & Day 2.
This is why Adam Craig will probably win SSCXWC in Kentucky this year and no, it’s not the bike. It’s his training! You see that Four Roses? Dude means business. Although being in the bourbon mecca might put a damper on those roosts!
