British Cycling: 2014 UCI Track Cycling World Championships
BritishCycling_01

When it comes to the UCI Track Cycling World Championships, I know where to go for photos: British Cycling. Each year they offer up a selection of moments from the weekend’s event that are too good to pass up. See more at the British Cycling Flickr.

One day I’d love to shoot photos at this event.

Today I Watched the UCI Pro Women Crush the 2014 Mellow Johnny’s Classic
2014 Mellow Johnny's Classic UCI Pro Women's Field

Yesterday, I got the hair brained idea to race the 2014 Mellow Johnny’s Classic at Flat Creek Ranch outside of Austin. I’ve never raced MTBs before, but figured what the hell? My buddy Hanson Little and I drove out, paid the $40 and raced. I started at the back and made it up to 4th. Hanson got 3rd. We were stoked but the highlight of the day for me was watching the UCI Pro Women absolutely crush the course. Check out the recording from the day here and the results here.

Team LUNA Chix was in top form, absolutely shredding every lap, leading the pack by well over a few minutes. It was really great watching these women rip the course apart! While I didn’t make a big deal about shooting photos today (man, it was hot), I did manage to get a few worth sharing. Check them out in the Gallery!

Watch The Armstrong Lie Here

In 2009, Academy Award®-winning director Alex Gibney (2007, Best Documentary, Taxi to the Dark Side) was hired to make a film about Lance Armstrong’s comeback to cycling. The project was shelved when the doping scandal erupted, and re-opened after Armstrong’s confession. THE ARMSTRONG LIE picks up in 2013 after Armstrong was stripped of his 7 Tour de France titles, and presents a riveting, insider’s view of the unraveling of the greatest deception in sports history.

I wish I could let you watch the Armstrong Lie on the site for free. Instead, here’s an embedded movie where you can pay $3.99 to rent it. I’ve seen it and it’s worth the watch!

Attention Pro Cyclists: Please Send Manual for Speed Your Selfies

Last week, in a very sedated state, I requested that my friends at Manual for Speed do a feature unlike anything professional cycling has done before: #SelfieSundays. Yes, I want to see pro cyclists take selfies with their phones or cameras. Or camera phones even. Well, the call to arms is here:

You heard them! Yes, you have to be PRO to submit the selfie. Wait, do pros even read this site?
