This week I am joined by a guest host in my very own time zone, Marianne! Don’t worry, Jeff is still my bestest co-host and will be back before long. Marianne is here to help me breath some new life into the tired topic of Lance. But first, we must find out who her peloton crushes are. [Note: Apologies to those of you using headphones, but Marianne’s side was only recorded in mono. Our bad!]
- Liquigas acquires new management (article)
- George Hincapie retires
- We agree with Chrisophe Bassons and Frankie Andreau when they say Armstrong needs control.
- We discuss the lack of comment from riders and the non-response response from some (Hushovd, Geraint). Inner Ring has thoughts on why riders don’t comment. And when riders do comment, but not the way we want them to, we get upset (Hayden Roulston)
- Great article by Science of Sport about the case- the potential fallout and issues often brought up about the case.
- Just because Lance won’t go to arbitration, doesn’t mean the evidence won’t come out (article)
- We discuss who we think has the best chance at winning, John Degenkolb’s dimples, how Valverde’s stage 8 win seemed like a bike F-U, Bert acting strangely, and Froome showing vulnerability.
Well. It’s a sad time at the Pelotontis Podcast HQ. Dan has had to leave the podcast due to life obligations. Sooooo, now I’m on the search for new co-host. Which for the next few weeks I’ll be having guests hosts! This week, I welcome the brains behind the title of this podcast, Jeff (@jaowen). This week, we catch up on the Tour of Flanders and talk about how the UCI tries out being logical for once. And we find out who Jeff’s man crush is.
- In a shocking turn of events, the UCI does the right things and lets Saxo Bank keep its World Tour license (CyclingNews article)
- We’re concerned about how the UCI is treating the biological passport (VeloNation article, CyclingNews article)
- Argos-Shimano and their white shorts get invited to the Tour (VeloNation article)
- Leipheimer is out with a broken fibula 😦 (CyclingNews article)
- Tour of Flanders: Boonen made the right tactical decisions while Pippo and Ballan did not; why did no one seem to care about Langeveld’s crash?
- Paris-Roubaix: there could be RAIN! Thor’s talking smack and we’re not sure he has the right to.
