The Recon Ride Podcast: Tour de France, Part III

21 Jul

Episode 19: Tour de France 2015, Part III With five stages remaining, the 2015 Tour GC race seems depressingly settled, but lesser placements, the KOM competition, and several glorious mountain-top finishes remain. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I bug CyclingTips’ Shane Stokes from his French accommodations to tell us more about the situation on […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Tour de France 2015, Part II

12 Jul

Episode 18: Tour de France 2015, Part II So nine stages in and we somehow still have a highly-competitive race. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I recap the previous week, talk a bit with Bicycling’s Whit Yost (@whityost), who’s recently returned from the Tour itself, and make some predictions on what will happen as […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Tour de Suisse 2015

11 Jun

Episode 16: Tour de Suisse 2015 There’s a lot to try and cover in a race this wide-open, especially given that it’s set to take place over nine freakin’ days. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) has a slightly more positive take, but for me, this year’s Tour de Suisse marks a pretty big missed opportunity […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Criterium du Dauphine 2015

5 Jun

Episode 15: Criterium du Dauphine 2015 While many consider this the beginning of “TdF Season”, as Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I delve into this week, the Dauphine is more than just a tune-up event, and has historically been kind of a crummy predictor for the Tour. Listen in for the details on why, […]

How The Race Was Won – Giro d’Italia – Stage 15

1 Jun

It’s one stage, and it’s the whole Giro. There weren’t major GC gaps at the top of the classification, but maybe there could have been. Purely speculative ♫…and to be real, it doesn’t matter anyway… ♫

The Recon Ride Podcast: Giro d’Italia 2015, Part 2

18 May

Episode 13: Giro d’Italia 2015, Part 2 We’re a touch over a week into the Giro—lots of things have gone as planned, and plenty more haven’t.

Cycling’s Sponsor-Branded Teams p/b Financial Instability

11 May

I like a lot of what Vaughters says here, but the problem is that cycling can’t have a franchise system until it has actual franchises. I mean, Vaughters’ own squad—officially Slipstream Sports LLC—hasn’t ever been called by that name. Manchester United, in contrast, has remained Manchester United, whether Sharp, AIG, or Chevy is emblazoned across […]
