About Whit

My experiences might easily fit many cycling fans' definitions of “living the dream.” Since getting hooked on the sport watching Lance Armstrong win the 1993 U.S. Pro Championship, I've raced as an amateur on Belgian cobbles, traveled Europe to help build a European pro team, and piloted that team from Malaysia to Mont Ventoux. As a former assistant director sportif with Mercury-Viatel, I've also seen the less dreamy side of the sport – the side rife with broken contracts, infighting, and positive dope tests. These days, I live with my lovely wife in Pennsylvania and share my experiences and views on the sport at Bicycling Magazine, the Embrocation Cycling Journal, and at my own site, Pavé.

    Renshaw = Disgusting

    Go back to head-butting at soccer matches…

    The head butting was funny but the way he almost rode Tyler into the barriers wasn’t.

    People are trying to draw parallels between this and McEwen/O’Gradys’ Headbutting match. The way I see it, Renshaw did it not to hold himself up, or because he and Dean were trying to occupy the same space, he was trying to keep Dean and his momentum from overtaking him. In my mind (and the race jury), that seems more severe, and I think worthy of dismissal from the race. It’s a shame he thought that was the way to go about it. Definitely a stain in an otherwise extremely clean and stellar leadout career.
