Episode 86: Tour of Trouble

We give the doping story 5 minutes too many (Menchov quietly banned for 2 years), then quickly turn to more fun topics, like the TOUR DE FRANCE. [Disclaimer: this was recorded before Contador dropped out, so… dated material ahead!] We talk Cav, cobbles, controversies (Talanskly’s ‘sprint’ fall), speculate on if Nibali can take it all the way, and curse selfish people- Jeff sits on his porch and tells kids to get off his lawn for a minute.

Episode 58: The Doping is Back in Town

We’re back talking about all your favorite topics- doping, the UCI, Pat McQuaid!

First up, the Senate report.

We speculate on why O’Grady got so much grief for his ’98 positive over the others who were revealed as positive in the report. We discuss the other type of omerta that still exists in cycling – doping methods and networks.

Also, how and when do cycling fans move on? Who is at fault for all headlines that focus on doping – the journalists or the fans who click on the links?

Then, we talk about Pat McQuaid’s slow decent into crazy-town

And we demonstrate that we are bad at math.

We also talk a little bit about actual racing, when we talk about team transfers! Jeff rechristens it “Schleck Trek” and sings a little ditty.
