Episode 93: Worlds preview

As we recorded this the night before the ITT, I’m definitely eating my words today… don’t judge too much! We also talk about Sagan and whether soon only the super teams of Saxo and BMC will be left, whether the anti-doping crusade is ruining cycling, Tyler Ferrar’s move to MTN, and more!

We rant about Phil and Paul and  Jeff finally agrees with Anna that they phone it in. Jeff reveals his middle name- “dead air”. We agree that there needs to be bad-weather procedures to help protect the riders and the organization and it’s reveled that Jeff is heartless. Once we’re done ranting, Jeff does as great job recapping that race in Colorado and we talk a bit about the Vuelta to come!

Episode 88: The Tour is Dead, Long Live the Tour

We wrap up the last week of Tour and talk about the takaways! Included: Jeff is disappointed in Cancellara, Anna is impressed with Saxo, Jeff wonders if Tony Martin could be a GC threat someday, and Anna looks back at Nibali’s racing history. Also: Anna rubs it in that she was right about Wiggins moving to the track and Jeff rubs it in that he beat Anna in the fantasy league.

Once again, Nibali makes the Tour his BITCH. And seriously, I cannot say enough about Nibali. I cannot remember a time when he was so aggressive.

Deep Thoughts: TdF ’14 Stage 14

You know, I’ve never really liked Nibali’s “Shark” nickname, but I’m starting to see how it’s appropriate…

  • Look. Nibali has LOADS of time of the guy in 2nd. I mean, he has over 4 FUCKING MINUTES on Valverde in 2nd. There’s no reason for him to attack. And if he were on Team Sky he definitely wouldn’t be attacking- he’d juts be chilling, riding defensively to save his lead. But the Shark is bored.…

Deep Thoughts: TdF ’14 Stage 14

Nibali is sending a message. And that message is “Oh, you’re going to attack me? That’s cool, as long as you don’t mind me attacking you right back SO HARD your face will fall off and then I’ll go win the stage for fun.

Episode 86: Tour of Trouble

Episode 86: Tour of Trouble

We give the doping story 5 minutes too many (Menchov quietly banned for 2 years), then quickly turn to more fun topics, like the TOUR DE FRANCE. [Disclaimer: this was recorded before Contador dropped out, so… dated material ahead!] We talk Cav, cobbles, controversies (Talanskly’s ‘sprint’ fall), speculate on if Nibali can take it all the way, and curse selfish people- Jeff sits on his porch and…

Deep Thoughts: TdF ’14 Stage 8

Looks like there was a little testing going on today! Contador did a little attack to see where that got him and while Nibali was able to keep up, i think Contador was testing him…

  • Some weird weather today. Decent weather, then they rode right into some nasty rain! Then cleared up again, then raining again- gross. I’ll admit i’ve never minded riding in the rain, but I’ve never had to ride 3 hours…

Deep Thoughts: TdF ‘14 Stage 7

Deep Thoughts: TdF ’14 Stage 7

Pretty shallow thoughts on today’s tour- not too much to say!

  • Love how the peloton will reel the break in and let them dangle a minute out there for kilometers on end. So cruel!
  • Did anyone else notice the massive air horns for Peter Sagan when he was on the podium?? Someone in the audience blew their air horn non stop the whole time Peter was on the stage!
  • Speaking of Peter, why did he make that…

Deep Thoughts: TdF ’14 Stage 6

The most exciting part of the day was waiting to see if any crosswinds would split the peloton! Sadly (from the viewers perspective, anyway!), the crosswinds weren’t strong enough to bother anyone except those dangling off the back.

  • The Invisible Man was visible today! Andre Griepel has been mostly MIA recently- but today the Gorilla was back! It was good to see him mug again. Although, I’ll…

Deep Thoughts: Tour ’14 Stage 5

Oh my, what a day! Highs and lows, crashes and recoveries and abandons.

  • Biggest Low: Froome out :( For whatever reason, I’m no fan of Froome, but I felt a little teary when I saw him crash, then climb into the car. It always sucks to see a big contender pull the plug.
  • And cue the chorus of people proclaiming “Where’s Wiggo now??” In my opinion, Sky still made the right choice by not bringing…

Episode 85: “Fool me once…”

Episode 85: “Fool me once…”

We tackle doping head on! Or rather, admit we don’t actually care about the doping but are interested in the reactions to the allegations. Plus, we wonder where is taking medicine to feel better considered doping? And why do we love Contador, but not Froome or Wiggins?? To wrap up, that little thing called the Tour de Suisse.
