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]
