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.”

David at Death Spray Custom has been busy preparing for the 2014 Tour de France. Many moons again, Cannondale commissioned him to paint a bike for each rider, adorned with their spirit animals, inspired by native American Haida style.
The fleet looks amazing, so head over to Death Spray Custom to see each rider’s bike! Brakethrough did a great job documenting these bikes.
Wednesday, July 2nd, Emily Maye has a photo exhibition opening in London, at Beach. Roll through to check it out. I wish I could be there!
Back to back beautiful slideshows from the crew at Vital MTB. The French still do Enduro best, from the way they govern their races – riders have to ride the same bike throughout the duration of the race and changes or repairs cause a time deduction -, to the feral enormity of their terrain the set the chocolate croissant standard of Enduro racing. 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!

From Eddie Merckxy, down to Fausto ROBOCOPpi, John Maniquis’ mash-up of cycling and pop culture figures is so amazing. I wish I could be at his opening tomorrow night, as I’m sure all of you do.

For those of us who won’t be able to make it to SF, John was kind enough to send over the pieces… See the full show list from Hybrids: Illustrations by John Maniquis below!
Man, that’s one of the longest titles of a post about a post of an event ever. Seriously… what the… Anyway, check out Manual for Speed’s coverage of the USACPRC for some really great #Chillers, Viking commentary and of course, Ted King. Not to be confused with Ben King.
Labels out Ted, labels out.
This is the sixth layout of the Radavist 2014 Calendar, entitled “Handups are PRO”. The camera and location are noted on the bottom left of the document.
Look, professional cycling is serious business, even for Cannondale’s Ted King. So serious that he’ll turn down your coke or PBR for the “other red can”. That’s right, the only way to Ted King’s heart is through a Tecate. At the 2014 Amgen Tour of California, Stage 08 was a party and one that I won’t forget.

Say what you will about Peter Sagan.
I am going to say that guy rips on a bicycle. While out riding with crowd favorite Marco “I like sandwiches and partying” Fontana, Sagan demonstrates an immortal level of bike control and skill. Some of you might be thinking, “what if he gets hurt, tweaks his wrist or skins his knee? ” I would argue that the mentality behind that sentiment has as much to do with the reason why we are sitting clicking buttons and looking at screens while Sagan is out sprinting the worlds best in his day job while casually nose manualing a tight switchback on the weekend.
