The Recon Ride – Tour de Romandie 2016

24 Apr

Episode 41: Tour de Romandie 2016 It’s no secret I don’t much care for week-long stage races, but this one’s not so bad. Listen in as Dane Cash of VeloHuman and I discuss why that is, alongside other topics that make this last-stop Giro/first-stop Tour tune-up unique. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Tour_de_Romandie_2016_Pre-race_Show.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: Duration: 30:13 — 41.7MB) […]

The Recon Ride – Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2016

22 Apr

Episode 40: Liege-Bastogne-Liege 2016 The sport’s oldest event sees a new course this year, and while I think it didn’t exactly need the adjustment, it sill gave me plenty of things to talk about with Dane Cash of VeloHuman. Favorites, climbs (categorized and otherwise), crashes, and the general gravitas of a 100+ year old event. […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Amstel Gold / Fleche Wallonne 2016

15 Apr

Episode 39: Amstel Gold / Fleche-Wallonne Off of the cobbles and onto the streets…and suddenly Etixx-QuickStep is the hot contender? Dane Cash of VeloHuman and I break down how this truth of the hilly classics is indeed stranger than the fiction of, say, Lance Armstrong’s continued tenure as the officially recognized 1995 Fleche-Wallonne winner. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Amstel_Gold_Race_La_Fle_che_Wallonne_2016_Pre-race_Show.mp3 […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Paris-Roubaix 2016

7 Apr

Episode 38: Paris-Roubaix 2016 The Queen of the Classics, the Hell of the North, the one race that people who only really know the Tour de France might also have heard of. Dane Cash of VeloHuman and I do the usual rundown, and even get BMC’s Taylor Phinney to tell us what’s actually going on […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Tour of Flanders 2016

31 Mar

Episode 37: Tour of Flanders I don’t like to point out any one show (or event) as a favorite, but I will say that Dane Cash of VeloHuman, CyclingTips‘ US Editor Neal Rogers and I had some outstanding conversation this week, examining and prognosticating about this 100th edition of the most important race in cycling’s […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Volta a Catalunya 2016

20 Mar

Episode 35: Volta a Catalunya 2016 The Volta a Catalunya is a great race and an old race, but underproduced and out of place on the WorldTour calendar–or at least that’s what I think. Dane Cash of VeloHuman, who was at the event itself last year, has some different thoughts as we pick some potential […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Milan-Sanremo 2016

17 Mar

Episode 34: Milan-Sanremo 2016 The World Tour’s longest race also brings the most compressed action, but I’m pretty resigned to thinking this thing is always going to be a sprint. Dane Cash of VeloHuman and I discuss the good and the bad of that, tab a few favorites, and even get some on-the-ground info from […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Tirreno-Adriatico 2016

6 Mar

Episode 33: Tirreno-Adriatico 2016 A mid-week stage race that’s comfortable with who it is, but at the same time isn’t afraid to try new things. That’s the Tinder Profile for Tirreno-Adriatico, and in this latest edition of the Recon Ride Dane Cash of VeloHuman and I tell you when to swipe left, when to swipe […]

The Recon Ride Podcast: Paris-Nice 2016

3 Mar

Episode 32: Paris-Nice 2016 After last week’s Belgian season opener, the eyes of the sport head to France where a storied event becomes ever more undermined by the organization that owns it. Dane Cash of VeloHuman talk about the ins, outs, stages, implications, contenders, and maybe—just maybe—make a few accurate predictions. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Paris-Nice_2016_Pre-race_Show.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: […]
