    RadioShack-Nissan-Trek Confirmed

    There have been rumors flying around about a Leopard Trek/RadioShack merger over the past few weeks. Monday, these rumors were confirmed and the two teams will create RadioShack-Nissan-Trek. This is a huge merger and I'm sure Bruyneel is excited to have young GT contenders after some poor...

    2011 Vuelta Predictions

    The last of the grand tours starts this Saturday, August 20th. Last years winner, Vincenzo Nibali, looks to repeat his Vuelta win, but I think the competition is a little stiffer this year. The race organizers made this race ideal for a pure climber and have included the Angliru, which the...

    Looks like Franco may face a two-year ban for blood abnormalities. He was one of the most exciting riders over the past few years and the possiblity of doping, like all other riders is very disheartening, but certainly not surprising. The article below mentions abnormal values in Pellizotti...

    Dauphine Libere Predictions

    Obviously a lot of the riders will use this as preperation for the Tour, starting in a few weeks time. Ambitions of winning this race are always in question. Without Valverde, who finished 1st the past two years and Evans, who finished behind him both times, I think the podium will include: 1)...
