Moscon is racist trash. don't let his ass win
Holy shit. Binam Girmay just won Gent Wevelgem… so awesome to see the young Eritrean kid shine.
Tour of Flanders next Sunday boys
Its nice that i get to see 3 TdF stages live this summer. one of them in my damn hometown, pretty. cool tbh.
That’s awesome. I want to go over some year and ride a stage before or after they do it and take in a stage.
after this year i’ll have been at 4 tdf stages none of them in france lol
I don’t hate it…
thats amazing. i wish i wouldn't known Covid was calming down. I would've brought my family over for the denmark start... that bridge on stage 2 is going to be fun.
while doing this for the TdF is fun, its even more amazing to do this for the belgian classic races. if you want to plan ahead, wait until the next time Alpe d'Huez is on the docket and definitely do it. the fans are there for days/weeks ahead of time just camping out and will give you beer/food, cheer you on, etc. Its beautiful
That would be so awesome.
Stage 3 starts here in my hometown.
I can’t imagine me riding the Alpe d’Huez…
Not that hard. Not that long.
tjsblue, sounds like you have climbed Alpe d'Huez.

Ha. No. That is the “general” take compared to some of the other massive climbs. I’m sure it is hard if you are racing it. And those Lance totals need to come off.
As well as other 'enhanced'... Which, of course, we will never truly know all of those who doped...
Good point. Ulrich for sure too. Heck probably not a clean name on there.
So, uh, this seems odd. Thoughts? I know disc breaks would be safer but this seems wild.
not sure if I've ever seen that. also, what a job...
Tour of Flanders this Sunday. MvDP is heating up and it sounds like WVA is sick. So we might miss out on that rivalry.
Is this not just an April Fool's thing?
haha. I always forget about April fools.
Fireworks starting. Time to tune in Pogicar wants this bad
Looked for a sec that Pogacar got MvdP cracking there on the Paterberg, gonna be a 2 person sprint though
what a legend
Pogicar finished 4th... lol. fuck off dude.
Paris Roubaix this morning. Let’s go
May be venturing back into this sport after a 20yr hiatus. When I left I was riding a Litespeed Classic with DA and Ksyriums.
Quick look tells me the industry has fully adopted carbon frames throughout all price points, titanium is not common, but steel frames are holding on still in niche brands. Thru-axles, larger diameter tires, and disc brakes are becoming standard?
Give me some recs around $5k. I’m intrigued by this one, that company reminds me of the guys at Surly. I used to race a rigid B.U.S.S. when I was in college. That bike fucked.
If I get back into the sport, it’ll just be to ride with coworkers. I’d prefer a less aggressive riding position, so anything that looks like a tri bike is a no-go.
I believe AllCity and Surly are linked… Ive been riding a surly steel frame for the last 4 years or so. After my oldest kid cracked my e carbon frame. I’ll get it repaired one day, once the kids are a bit less reckless.
I’m very happy with my Surly because I live in dirt roads and can easily toss on gravel roads or fatter tires.
this story is apeshit... involving one of the best male and female gravel racers in the US.
I literally just started following her on the gram after she won the Belgium Waffle Ride and saw this last week and could not believe it.
She’s from my neck of the woods and is a legend up here. Like that article mentions, the Boston Globe has been all over this story.
I also now know why there were so many people in Hico when I drove through it Friday night.
Been to both stages and doing stage 3 in my hometown tomorrow. The crowds for the tour has been absolutly insane the first 2 days.
Just me and everyone else. this is the start of the race btw.
Uran having fun
love that guy so much
awesome to see Magnus Cort in the polka dot jersey. He should keep it until friday.
people went absolute nuts for him today. i was at the top of the first climb today and you could hear the crowd in the bottom when he got around the corner.
I grew up with his cousin. Its not much but still.
love that man!
Vingegaard is a baaaad man. holy shit!
