Arnie Mostowy, Hitler and The Dopers

Brilliant. I use that word a lot but this work by Arnie Mostowy justifies it. Is Hitler funny? He is when he's portrayed as one of the US DoperClique getting pissed off at being busted for taking PEDs. Lance had his tent, Hitler had his bunker. Wonder if he shaved his legs? I will serve … Continue reading Arnie Mostowy, Hitler and The Dopers

The world’s first 3-D printed bike goes SNAP…

These are coming, they must be, there will be some freaky time ahead when you buy a plan from Pinarello or whoever and then print your bike in your office. But, judging by this amusing video, not quite yet. Here some students from Carleton University do a first time ever! test-ride of their plastic bike, … Continue reading The world’s first 3-D printed bike goes SNAP…

R.A.C.E Paskenta, racing as it should be

I love this concept - racing your bike for the sheer heck of it, no frills, no cops, no race numbers, no messing, and the best trophy I have seen yet. Here's the blurb that accompanies the vid on youtube: "Following the Amain.com Cycling Team at the first big race of 2015. Paskenta is a … Continue reading R.A.C.E Paskenta, racing as it should be

Animal Cruelty: Slaying The Badger on 30 for 30

ESPN's 30 for 30 films are just about the best collection of sports documentaries I have come across, cutting through the hype and floss to get right down to the bone. They are about so much more than 'just' sports (Once Brothers is a fine example), so good that even folk without a real interest … Continue reading Animal Cruelty: Slaying The Badger on 30 for 30

The Bicycle – A Celebration of the Invention

Excellent film here on the bicycle's history - possibly the best I have seen, it is so comprehensive and so obviously in love with the machine. Ignore the quality and settle in for a treat, really cool to actually see the old bone-shakers being ridden. Especially likes the Scot who rode his invention to Glasgow … Continue reading The Bicycle – A Celebration of the Invention

2015 7-11 Team kit out now!

Yes, seriously, and it's a cracker. This is the 7-11 Philippines UCI Continental team kit, not the old classic 7-11 kit from the 80s. That was one of my all time favorite kits and indeed my first ever pro replica kit, I loved that thing even though my skinny Froomey arms didn't fill the sleeves! … Continue reading 2015 7-11 Team kit out now!

Harry Kramer, the Bearded Wonder Kid

Sweet little video here about an old boy 'doing a Sagan' (no not pinching a backside but doing wheelies). The commentator pulls out some deadly jokes, such as: "The only thing Harry said he can't balance is his wife's bank account." Harry's looks a bit mad to be fair, but then, aren't we all? Best … Continue reading Harry Kramer, the Bearded Wonder Kid

another awesome c-r-a-s-h

I hate the word c-r-a-s-h. I generally spell it out when I am talking and this makes me wonder why I am posting the second c-r-a-s-h video in two days but this is a great one, a proper 9.5 for both technique and execution. And he didn't hurt himself. And he is a cyclocrosser, which … Continue reading another awesome c-r-a-s-h
