    The Thread about Nothing....

    Chevron Australia 2010 Perth International Track Grand Prix is on SBS today at 5pm WST (or so I am told - I'm over in Singapore, so I won't see it anyway). My family tell me it was a great carnie, so watch it if you can / want / are forced to (eg Clockwork Orange).

    JR. Gearing, your take

    You are racing in UCI open events? Our club is primarily Junior development-focused, and includes several current and past World Champions. We are meticulous about roll-outs and transitional phases in moving up to the next age group. I don't recall hearing of any of our riders crashing...

    A Point to Ponder

    Hi, Lim - Here's another thought which comes directly from the private enterprise World I inhabit (note that it's only applicable to the pro peleton), where employers are required to take responsibility for the behaviour and performance of their flock. The riders are employed by their Teams. For...

    Stop beating around the bush. What are you wanting to say? Incidentally, nice use of solipsism. In the words of Monty Python: "René Descarte was a drunken fart, I drink therefore I am."

    ...and also because Postal was a (partially) Federal-funded affair. Govt likes to spend its money on the drugs / dictators / wars of its own choosing. The boys should have explained that ONCE and Telekom were communist organisations, then they could have had EPO by the Vatload.

    Stage 17 dissapoints once again

    They both rode well and were evenly matched, and the pace was high enough to put them well off the front. Marking on a climb is not exactly wheel-sucking. Contador, like Schleck, is in the business of winning bike races. His ride on Stage 17 was exactly as it should have been. He wasn't able to...

    Torker Graduate

    I ride a Torker LX 26 unicycle, which is reasonably well made, but nothing startling. I'm not sure, with the enormous quantity of bikes available in the Netherlands, why you would be going to the effort of tracking down one from the USA. The Netherlands must have one of the highest bike...

    Should Contador Have Held Back for Schleck?

    There's an interview with Merckx back in the early 70's where he says something along the lines of "I give no gifts, and I expect none in return".
