    For all I know, this is just a publicity stunt, but someone has actually announced the intention of a 27-stage GT of the USA. Among other things, it features 4...

    1996 TdF Winner - how does cycling keep its records?

    So who won the 1996 TdF? And how do we think about cycling records now? Do we write them off? Do we leave them in place but put a huge asterisk by every name or on the title of the list? Or are we dropping interest in this sport so the question matters about as much as some lost local...

    Beltran! At Pais Vasco

    Congrats to Manuel Beltran of Liquigas, winner of today's hilly second stage at the Vuelta al Pais Vasco. His first win since the overall at the 1999 Volta Catalunya (with Banesto), as far as I can tell. Great to see a long-time hard worker get something for himself, relatively late in his...

He soloed up the last climb, was eventually caught...

    Hincapie Wins US Road Title

    Hincapie wins the US Road Championship and will wear the stars and stripes next year. Leipheimer was second and one can argue (note that I am working only off text updates) that Levi and George were in coorperation in the race. However, after trailing by maybe 20 seconds with 10k to go, Levi...

    ProTour rankings balances

    I don't know how much stock people put into the ProTour points competition, but I find it interesting/amusing that, should Hincapie win the ENECO tour, he would get at least 55 points (overall plus two stages), which would put him 6th or 7th overall, behind Basso, ahead of Evans. Ballan could...

    Et tu, Rodriguez/Unibet?

    Please correct me if I am wrong, but the Babelfish translation of (one French, one Dutch) tells me that Juan Carlos Dominguez of Unibet was tossed out of the ENECO...

    National Champion etiquette

    I see here that Polish TT champion Piotr Mazur wore his national colors in today's TT at the ENECO tour. What are the rules/customs? Can those colors be worn during any TT stage? What...
