The Recon Ride Podcast: Tour de Pologne 2015

31 Jul

Episode 21: Tour de Pologne Not unlike San Sebastian, the Tour of Poland falls into a weird spot in the calendar. But as Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I explore, it’s a surprisingly unique event, with a habit of turning up new champions, and maybe more in common with the Belgian races in April […]

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2015

30 Jul

So, given that I wasn’t going to be able to get this done anywhere near the actual end of the Tour de France, I took a shot a mostly comprehensive take on the GC race into a single episode. Lots of links to other videos (things are interrelated—who knew?) so hopefully YouTube won’t take it […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Clasica San Sebastian 2015

30 Jul

Episode 20: Clasica San Sebastian 2015 The name insists this race is a classic, but it feels little young, and a little undervalued to warrant that admittedly meaningless distinction. Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I talk about the race, along with its history, contenders and parcours, and then bug Trek Factory Racing’s Bauke Mollema […]

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

1 Jul

Episode 17: Tour de France 2015, Part I Dane Cash (@velohuman / VeloHuman.com) and I dissect the storylines and first week of the sport’s biggest event. [SPOILER ALERT] I expect the first nine days to be relatively nervous. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Tour_de_France_2015_Show_Part_I.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: 45:17 — 62.2MB) Subscribe: iTunes|RSS Photo by Greenwich Photography (CC).

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 3

25 May
