Monday Musette – Roubaix Wrap-Up

All Photos by Tim Vanwichelen Admit it, you found yesterday’s race a bit boring. Unless Cancellara happens to be your favorite rider, there was something a bit anti-climatic about the way he quickly and authoritatively disposed of his competition, motoring away from them all with a little less than 50 kilometers remaining in the race. … Continue reading

Monday Musette – Think Spring!

Here are some things to keep you busy during the Tour’s second rest day: 1. Two weeks ago, I directed you to check-out the Flanders episode of Cervélo TestTeam’s documentary, Beyond the Peloton. The Roubaix episode’s up now too. Some great stuff! How many days until April? 2. And speaking of Roubaix, Red Kite Prayer … Continue reading
