The guys at Manual for Speed have you covered (well, Cannondale covered) for ‘cross in 2013. I can’t wait to see how this unfolds. Check out more at MFS 2.0.
Photos by Emily Maye
Emily has a new gallery up on her site entitled “Cobbled Classics“. The photos should get you into the mood for some Flemish fun, especially with road season in full swing and the exhilarating finish of the 2013 Paris Roubaix.
Also, that looks like Chris Milliman‘s hands in the last photo. He’s shooting film? I’d like to see that Chris.
This weekend is NAHBS over here at PiNP but you can also watch the 2013 UCI Track Worlds on UCI’s Youtube channel, beginning February 20th – 24th.
This one‘s too weird to not post… Thanks for sharing Joseph!
Unfortunately, my bourbon-drinking ass didn’t make it to the 2013 UCI Cyclocross World Championships in Louisville this year. I know, I know. I should have gone but truth be told, I don’t think I would have survived the trip to my Distillery Mecca. Instead, I asked my good friend and past-contributor, Andrew Franciosa to submit a Guest Gallery showcasing the snowy mayhem. I still wish I could have attended the event but I’ll give my liver a break until NAHBS this month!
As a cyclist, living in Austin, people want to know what I think about the whole Lance Armstrong doping scandal. Just today, I was asked by three unrelated people on the street after I finished up a ride. “Well what do you have to say about Armstrong?”. It’s a tough question to answer. Austin is Lance’s home town and his name is just about everywhere you look. He’s done a lot for cycling here. But do I like him? No. Not at all.
If he were a good person, I’d feel bad for him. But he’s not. He’s a lying, arrogant, egomaniac who ruined the credibility of American cycling (and cycling in general) in order to push his career. So for that, I don’t like the man and I feel bad for his teammates that refused to dope, for being dragged into this whole scandal. His legacy is false and we all believed in him!
Side note: LiveStrong.org should be left out of this argument. Don’t confuse it with Livestrong.com. What I will say is that while Livestrong.org was founded by Lance, they’ve proven to be one of the best things to happen to cancer patients and for that, I’ll commend them. It was wise to ask him to step down. But the lines between .com and the .org tend to be blurry at times.
Now I’m sure people have mixed feelings about this whole scandal and his interview with Oprah but when will we hear the end of it?
