The Recon Ride Podcast – Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France 2016

26 Aug

Episode 53: Bretagne Classic – Ouest-France 2016 Not exactly sure why I even bother to put a date after the ever-changing name of this event, but poor event branding not withstanding, while Dane Cash and I have comparatively little to say on this largely underrated race, the overwhelming majority of it is pretty positive. […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Olympic Road Race 2016

4 Aug

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. Podcast: Download (Duration: 38:54 — 53.5MB) Subscribe: iTunes|RSS Photo by Paul […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Clasica San Sebastian 2016

28 Jul

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, Part 3

19 Jul

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 […]

The Recon Ride: Tour de France 2016, Part 2

11 Jul

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 […]

The Recon Ride: Criterium du Dauphine 2016

4 Jun

Episode 45: Criterium du Dauphine The Criterium du Dauphine is one of those races that would be better if riders actually specialized in one-week GC wins. Still, there’s plenty to talk about with Dane Cash as the impending Tour de France starts to bring storylines together. Podcast: Download (Duration: 32:35 — 44.8MB) Subscribe: iTunes|RSS […]
