Episode 13: Let’s Act Like Adults
This week I am joined by cycling historian Andy Homan. He’s the author of Life in the Slipstream: The Legend of Bobby Walthour and he’s a great addition to my podcasting partner list as he compare Phil Liggett to Ron Burgundy. There was precious little news this week, but there was amazing racing to make up for it!
- Cancellara is back! Gilbert is back! The women of cycling fandom rejoice.
- Giro d’Italia: The racing has been amazing!! Lots of nail biting finishes… We are not impressed with the attitudes and passive aggressive behavior of the Shlecks or Bruyneel; are the Schlecks actually just spoiled brats? Andy wonders how you can base a team on just one region of a country- so we compare Rhode Island to the Basque Country. We wonder if Hesjedal can keep the jersey until the end. And I predict impressively wrong…
- Cipollini! Stop picking on Cav! I also think Cav is giving up the Green jersey for the Giro jersey and the Olympics.
- Tour of California: Of course we’re impressed by Sagan, the climbing, the close racing. We wonder who would win in a Sagan/Cav match up; Andy compares Phil Liggett to Ron Burgundy; and we discuss the winners and losers of the race.
