I mean, is this serious? This just doesn't seem right. Just completely overturn the ruling? I understand he's a national hero and all. He may end up being the greatest cyclist since fancy pants, but if it looks like he's cheating, it needs to be looked at seriously. I mean really seriously. This just seems like the Spanish fed is ignoring any facts in the case.

So the random sequence generator says comment number 2 is the winner. Tomás please email you're mailing addy to anello.grande[-at-] gmail.com and I'll mail them out to you. However, if I don't hear from you by next Friday, I'll award the gloves to the next comment the random sequence says (#3).
Now that that's over, I can watch Metallica play Damage Case with Lemmy on VH1.

These are brand new black gloves in the package. They are pretty light, full finger gloves, great for mountain biking, or gravel rides. I've seen online prices for these at $24. One last thing, I need a way to contact you if you win to get a mailing addy. So make sure you leave an email or some form of contact info.

Dang, I keep saying that one of these years I'm gonna do Leadville, and one of these years I'm going to. Just not sure when. But watching the trailer puts me in the mood to get on the bike and ride.
Maybe not this exact one, as this is built up be me. Build your own and maybe you can win it. Just follow this link: http://myorbea.cyclingnews.com/.
Well maybe don't, then there's more of a chance for me to win mine, right? Someone's gotta win it.

At this point there's well over 550 riders committed and all said and done, could top 600. It's amazing to me how many riders are interested in coming to our corner of the world to ride a gravel road race.
On a side note, here's a link to a friends post on what the Almanzo means to him and some thoughts on "free" racing. http://rideonpurpose.blogspot.com/2011/01/what-almanzo-means-to-me.html It's a very good post, and well worth the read. And maybe give you a little to think about.
Finally, tomorrow (2/1/2011) begins registration for the Almanzo Market. http://almanzomarket.weebly.com/ If you are in, or know of people in the bike industry, this may be a great way to connect with riders who want to compete, but are put off by the prices of regular racing.

Who is more legitimate, the guy who rides a bike as an activity? Or the guy who has really no other choice then to use a bike for transportation?
The above video accompanies a great article about the divide between the low income people who can benefit the most from bicycle transportation, and the bike shops, information and amenities that can help them.
Just food for thought.

It's amazing to me how much the line between Street BMX and Urban Trials is blurring. It's also amazing how many riders are running brakeless. I mean, I have no idea how you would do a nose pick, without a front brake.

Wow, really well done. Both the video and the frame. I've always like Soulcraft bikes. In fact they even gave some swag for a couple alleycat races I put on a couple years ago. Great guys.

Wouldn't it be awesome to have the roads all to bikes, and force cars to drive in the gutters? At least you can purchase the print by visiting this link http://www.20x200.com/art/2010/11/car-free.html
As expensive as they are, I still think that Oakley glasses are among the best sports glasses made. I wish I could come across some Oakley-3, B-1B or O-wing grips. Those were some of my favorite grips when I was riding BMX. Anyway this is an awesome video showing and telling some of the history of Oakley.

Newton's Third Law is wrong: Although it states that for each action, there is an equal and opposite reaction, there is no force equal in reaction to an attack by Gunnar Soroos. Gunnar Soroos rides for Toms Shoes Cycling Team. Gunnar Soroos is so crazy and awesome that he flips out ALL the time. I heard that Gunnar was eating at a diner. And when some dude dropped a spoon Gunnar Soroos killed the whole town. My friend Oprah Winfrey said that she saw Gunnar Soroos totally uppercut some jerkface just because they opened a window. Gunnar Soroos doesn't shop at Costco!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Gunnar Soroos has two speeds. Fast, and Kill! The main export of a Gunnar Soroos attack is pain. You can control how people can interact with you and your friends. Choose who can see you, who can speak to you, who can hurt you, and who can be ignored.
