The Recon Ride Olympic Road Race 2016

Episode 51: Olympic Road Race 2016

I don’t beat around the bush that the Quadrennial Entity isn’t exactly my favorite sporting event in the world. But Dane Cash is enough of a fan that…*sigh* I guess we can do a podcast on it.

The Recon Ride Podcast – Clasica San Sebastian 2016

The Recon Ride Clasica San Sebastian 2016

Episode 50: Clasica San Sebastian 2016

I’m off the grid this weekend, but Dane and I still recorded a podcast. I’m expecting it to be live on his site by now, but since this is an auto-scheduled post, YMMV. San Sebastián is a cool race regardless, and one that deserves quite a bit more attention.

The Recon Ride Tour de France 2016

Episode 49: Tour de France, Part 3

Ok, so Team Sky and Chris Froome are definitely in charge of this year’s Tour de France. But a truly inhumane third week means the 2016 race is far from over. Dane Cash of of VeloHuman may have other opinions, and—after a thorough listen to our discussion—I’m sure you will, too.

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 10-16

19 Jul

Never have I felt more like Walter Sobchak.

The Tour de France video for Week 3 (also check out the first week, second week and preview) was a lot of work. So much to unpack and re-assemble, especially a shambolic Stage 12 and a teeny-tiny bit of controversy over a sprint or two.

As always, huge thanks to Scott and CyclingTips for making it happen. Shirt by Pedal Power Training Solutions.

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 6-9

11 Jul

Is it Stages 6 through 9, or 5 through 9, or ♫ workin’ 9-to-5, just tryin’ to make a livin’… ♫

Week 2’s Tour de France video (also check out the first week and preview) covers the fairly traditional ground of the GC even but notes that a lot of work is being done for not that much result, while some generally unlucky rivals have fared far better thus far.

Again, huge thanks to Scott and CyclingTips for making it happen, and yes—this weeks battle-worn shirt is Only Lance Network shirt is a thing you can buy

The Recon Ride Tour de France 2016

Episode 48: Tour de France, Part 2

The Tour’s first week provided…actually, not all that much. Some chaotic sprints, to be sure, but on the GC front things remain barely separated even after nine stages. Dane Cash of of VeloHuman and I take in the relative inaction, make predictions for the upcoming week, and even revise and earlier choice or three.

How The Week Was Won – 2016 Tour de France, Stages 1-5

7 Jul

The first of our our new “How The Week Was Won” videos shows that despite some opportunity for mass disruption, the 2016 Tour has gotten off to a slow start—at least from the prospective of the overall classification. The result has been more than a few bonkers sprints, where experience and solid teamwork have mostly ruled the day. Check out the first “weekly” winner of this year’s TdF, and [SPOILERS] it’s a trend that’s continued into today’s stage, too.
