I tried linking to a funny interview Bradley Wiggins did with Boasson H. during the Tour but it was geo-blocked. Here it is on Youtube. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vY0xBDXque8) "not a great entertainer is young Edvald", pretty much sums it up. :D


yeah, I've read some interviews with him asking him how he felt about being a rishing star in cycling. He seems very "meh...yeah. I ride bikes. So what?" I wish I could tell if he was being funny in a dry way or is just like that. NOthing wrong with being shy tho :) I'll watch the vid when I get home from work.

TG, you should read Boy Racer. Cav's book. It's light and fluffy (got thru it in a day) but it's good stuff. Esp if you are a fan. Yeah, Wigo looks about 45. What happened?


If I only had 3 million Euros (http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/cancellara-on-sale-for-eur3-million);)

I've got Cav's book but haven't read it yet. This three day weekend may be a good time to read it.

Australian cycling blog started a contest for pictures taken by cell phones that relate to a cycling theme ("what you missed this morning"). A few pro riders, including FSU fave Mark Renshaw, got in on the fun and started sending pics.

Here are the first set of pictures from contestants, (http://www.cyclingtipsblog.com/2010/09/wymtm-photo-competition-week-1/) with a separate category at the bottom for the pros.

oh cool! I take pics all the time when I am out riding :) You see totally different thing on a bike then in a car. I almost posted one of my race pictures here, but I felt silly.

itsartemis, I watched that video with Edvald. Awwww, he's so shy!! Poor thing look terrified of the camera. When Wiggo was like "do you want to say anything to your people" I was expecting him to start speaking in Norwegian (norsk?) but he kept speaking in english. He looked like he wanted to go hide. awww. :saint:

These are really cool pictures! Thank you for the link.

He is almost just as shy when he's speaking Norwegian. When he came to the scene, we were thinking he'd get used to it, but it really does not seem like he'll ever do that. He's the most uncharismatic athlete we have, but we still love him a lot, what's not to love - his cycling is fantastic! :D

And yes, it is norsk. :)

Taylor Phinney takes the prologue at the Tour de l'Avenir and tweets with delight that the jersey was presented by Hinault and he got a stuffed lion (http://twitpic.com/2lj8pr).

:swoon:


See, I think this is Cav's problem, really. Because even once the tour de france was over and they were doing there victory lap, and even though Renshaw wasn't even in the race any more, Cav was still following Renshaw (http://sphotos.ak.fbcdn.net/hphotos-ak-snc4/hs216.snc4/39141_806684171346_5523481_44677149_5086461_n.jpg) when I saw them. Clearly it is hard for Cav to go places if he doesn't have Renshaw's butt to follow. (BTW if there are any "following Renshaw around" positions open, I am available)

(Which reminds me, I forgot to mention this earlier because it took me a while to get them uploaded, if anyone wants to see my TdF final stage pictures, just PM me. I just didn't want to post the link to my facebook where everyone could see.)

:lol: That could be it, (and nice pic btw!) but it's not like he still didn't have a nice...wheel to follow. I mean....Eisle is a good lead out (http://www2.pictures.zimbio.com/gi/Tour+de+France+2009+Previews+vx2EvqoeGCzl.jpg) ;-)


Ahem....what was that about jobs? I am more than available! :swoon: oh! I already PMed you. Please PM me with your facebook!

Pippo Pozzato's blog at Cyclingnews (http://www.cyclingnews.com/blogs/filippo-pozzato-1/watching-my-world-championship-rivals) talks about the Vuelta, his tax investigation and Worlds, althought it's this paragraph that made me chuckle.


There seems to be a bit of a fashion for 'i baffi', as we call them in Italian. Dave Zabriskie has got a 'tache too. Joaquin Rodriguez reckons I look like his twin brother. I've nothing against Zabriskie, but to be honest, I think I'm a little bit better looking….

Apparently Vino dresses his sons in Vino 4-eva jersies too. (http://4.bp.blogspot.com/_wb8bAl1P-N0/TIjbOX1cR8I/AAAAAAAAQiA/Aj_ay9rjAlo/s1600/vino+kids.jpeg)

They need helmets to pet a donkey? I am sure they were riding a bike but it's just funny since you don't see on in the pic. Well, the pic is just :rollin:

Watched part of the Pro Tour race in Quebec. I was really rooting for Ryder but great last minute attack by Voeckler for the win. Looked like a nice turn out on the streets and great to see the pro tour in North America. And kudos to the organizer for a great live feed on their site.
