Episode 59: Welcome to the SlackerCast!

Note: sorry for the bad sound quality- both of our mics weren’t set up right!

We prove ourselves to be the laziest podcast by talking about races we didn’t watch or follow.

We discuss how a 3 week stage race in the US is a looooong way off.

We wonder if we don’t get Bradly Wiggins because we’re not British.[VeloNation]

We compare Phil and Paul to math teachers who’ve been teaching for 40 years and can’t seem to find a new script.

We get excited about all the young riders having good runs in the US races, PLUS all the younger American riders going to bigger teams next year!

Anna comes up with a clever classification for the GTs: The Giro is sophisticated mother, the Tour is the overbearing father, and the Vuelta is the red-headed stepchild. Anna also confesses her shock that Nibali is actually a winning rider.

The pundits CONTINUE to put Basso as a Vuelta threat and we continue to be amazed by this.

Episode 50: High Octane and Slow Burn

We rants  A LOT about Wiggins/Sky/Froome, the cat bites me, we wonder what Classics would be like if they were directed by Michael Bay, and encourage you to join our fantasy leagues!

Fantasy cycling!!

  • Velogames: (league code: 29133250): Basic fantasy league- you pick your team and let it ride for the duration.
  • Road.cc (league code: 76730): A bit more intense, you can make a certain number of substitutes. Has free and pay options. You need a road.cc account to sign up for the league, but you don’t have to pay.

We mostly skip over talking about Amstel Gold and Fleche Wallonne to focus on Liege-Bastogne-Liege and the Giro.

Liege-Bastogne-Liege!

Giro!

  • Giro Startlist [Cycling Fever]
  • Basso to lead Cannondale- srsly?? [VeloNation]
  • Wiggins can’t decide- will he or won’t he ride the Giro? Meanwhile Froome starts shopping for new teams (not really, but I sure hope he is) [VeloNation]

Episode 33: S*** Storm before the Rainbow

Marianne is back to offer her opinion on the reasoned decision and the fallout! Anna reveals the first thing she does when she wakes up is check Twitter and we reunite the Optimists Club. Also, we find some things to talk about that aren’t related to doping!
