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!

Give Pedal Strike a follow on Twitter and Instagram for an extra smile per stage!

The Footdown: El Diablo Prints
El-diablo-prints

In the spirit of the Tour, Ty at the Foot Down made a run of El Diablo prints and shirts.

“Didi Senft has been a regular fixture on the slopes of the greatest climbs of the Tour de France and Giro d’Italia since 1993. More commonly known as El Diablo he appears dressed as the devil running and jumping alongside the riders and bringing an extra spark of excitement to any stage. Everyone loves Didi!”

Score one at the Foot Down.

Manual for Speed: Manuel at the Tour Day France
manuel_dayzero_tourdayfrance

So let me get this straight, rather than springing for tickets to the Tour this year, MFS sends:

“Manuel, an eight-pound miniature dachshund currently working toward obtain an online degree in New Media Journalism from Full Sail University from his home in Miami-Dade county.”

Whatever Manual for Speed is on, I need some of that…

“Three years ago Manuel quit his Courtroom Artist job of 35 years—the majority of which time he spent working in the Florida Supreme Court, and over the course of which tenure he won dozens of prestigious national and international awards for his art—to finally realize his dream of becoming the first Canine TV Correspondent for ABC’s Wide World of Sports.”

Head over to Manual for Speed for some very weird coverage from the Tour DAY France.

Manual for Speed Explodes on the Tour de France With Incredible Awesomeness
garmin-sharp_x_manual_for_speed_france_jersey

There are insuations that I make millions of dollars a year from the cycling industry for posting high-end, limited edition, wank-resistant kits, jackets, hubs, spokes and bar tape. It’s true and Manual for Speed pays me so much money that I’m the literal Scrooge McDuck of the industry, diving into pools of Chris King headsets and PAUL Touring Cantis.

Or… I just like what companies are doing and decide to post their products, regardless of how outrageous they are. I kinda wanna wear one of these jerseys to BRUNCH BRO (sorry Emi).

Scoop up one of these completely ridiculous but somehow necessary 2014 Tour de France Manual for Speed extravaganza jerseys at Garmin Slipstream for a end of July delivery.
