The Recon Ride Podcast – ENECO Tour 2016

18 Sep

Episode 57: ENECO Tour 2016 No one disputes that the Spring Classics are awesome, and the ENECO Tour smartly re-packages them into a week-long stage race in September. As the WorldTour draws to a close, Dane Cash and I discuss the likely favorites and the surprising conclusion to the season, which could see the winningest […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – GP Quebec and GP Montreal 2016

8 Sep

Episode 56: GP Quebec & GP Montreal The UCI WorldTour comes to Noth America and Dane Cash himself heads up to Canada to score interviews with BMC’s Greg van Avermaet and reigning Montreal champ Tim Wellens of Lotto-Soudal. Oh right—and Dane and I discuss and prognosticate on these unique, underrated, and perhaps slightly misplaced one-day […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Vuelta a Espana 2016, Part 3

6 Sep

Episode 55: Vuelta a Espana, Part 3 As we head into the third week, the unpredictability has continued, but Quintana has also solidified his lead. Dane Cash and I go over the last chances for the Movistar rider’s competitors, and discuss the controversies and remaining racing with Eurosport’s Felix Lowe. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Vuela_a_Espan_a_2016_Show_Part_III.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: 41:00 […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – Vuelta a Espana 2016, Part 2

30 Aug

Episode 54: Vuelta a Espana, Part 2 All I can really say is I’d love to have been watching more of this race live. Dane Cash go through the entertaining twists and turns of the first 10 days, and preview the hills and excursions into France slated for this second week. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Vuelta_a_Espan_a_2016_Show_Part_II.mp3 Podcast:

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. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Bretagne_Classic-Ouest-France_2016_Pre-race_Show.mp3 […]

The Recon Ride Podcast – 2016 Vuelta a Espana, Part 1

18 Aug

Episode 52: 2016 Vuelta a Espana, Part 1 The third Grand Tour of the year has a start list that you couldn’t be blamed for confusing with the second. With all the route data—and some help from Trek-Segafredo’s Kiel Reijnen—we work through all the important details. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Vuelta_a_Espan_a_2016_Show_Part_I.mp3 Podcast: Download (Duration: 46:57 — 64.5MB) Subscribe: iTunes|RSS […]

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. http://media.blubrry.com/reconride/p/content.blubrry.com/reconride/The_Recon_Ride_Podcast_Olympic_Road_Race_2016_Pre-race_Show.mp3 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 […]
