American hero Kid Rock, who some say looks like the lost brother of American cyclist Floyd Landis , which is a nice way of saying he looks like some white trash dude who rides his 10-speed to his job as a bus — Kid Rock News
I found a picture of Kid Rock on the Internet and compared it with Landis’ official Tour de France website photo.
Isn’t that an uncanny resemblance? I think it was Saturday Night Live that started the “Separated at Birth” bit that compares celebrities who look like they could be twins but have grown up separately. These two would be good candidates. http://www.bikingbis.com/
These jets are made for radio controlled airplanes and helicopters. But no one said you can’t strap them onto an old mountain bike? These turbines cost around 3k each. Not a bad price considering a sweet carbon bike will run you about as much. You will leave the competition in your after burners when you show up at the next criterium with these strapped to your road bike. Ale Jet stands no chance against a real jet.
Downhiller Dave Watson jumped over the Tour de France in 2003 on the climb up to L’Alpe D’Huez. The jump was setup just as a breakaway was riding through. The Downhill daredevil seemed to be an urban legend as word of the jump could not be verified and it seemed as though the Tour Organization ASO tried to confiscate the video. Now a few years later, the video is up on YouTube.
“We kind of wanted to tie the evolution of cycling into the 100th year of Le Tour,” explains freerider cyclist Dave. “And jumping over the peleton seemed the best way to do it.”
The new kit is out and it may seem like a rushed job, but a Kazakistan company or conglomorate has stepped up to make sure that Alexandre Vinokourov rides the Tour de France this year. With the fallout of Operation Puerto resulting in the departure of main sponsor Liberty Seguros, things looked grimm for the Kazak Tour hopeful. Although it remains to be seen if ASO will allow Astana-Wurth to ride the Tour de France, at least Vino has some sponsorship support to take over from Liberty.
The new sponsor has interestingly decided to use Kazak spokesman Borat to put on the new kit. They even switched to Kazak made Borat bikes instead of the BH bikes that were previously used.
Ebay is great to pick up used stuff that other folks just don’t need any more. This eBay ad is from a Cat 2 who just can’t take riding any more and is selling everything. A bad performance at Gila has made this guy just want to quit.
After two days at the GILA we have decided that everything must go. This is all the TOP of the line stuff. Everything is light as light gets. The sad thing it didn’t help me from getting dropped. SRM power meters for both bikes and laptop so when all else fails you can over analyze what went wrong. Endurox an OPTYGEN (obviously didn’t help or I wouldn’t be selling my junk) TIMBUK 2 bag so you can look cool at the coffee shop when trying to act like a pro. Shoes, helmets, 3 kits, speed suit, I really mean everything you will ever need. We are talking about almost $15,000+ dollars of stuff and you get the CAR also. I will be flying home and don’t want to see any of this stuff again. Chain lube, Shammy Cream, bike bottles(still half full), several pairs of sunglasses. Renn Disc wheel an Aero front wheel so when you get 25th in the TT you have no excuse…even though I have plenty…call me I would love to talk about them. I will include all the VeloNews magazines you will ever want to read. You get my Fluid trainer, roof rack for four bikes… so you can travel with all your biking buddies. Again this is everything you will ever need to pretend like you are a bike racer. You don’t have to even take the bikes off the car. Just drive around town and talk about epic rides and SICK wattages. Flash out the INCLUDED USCF LICENSE CAT 2 and talk about how you are about to apply for your upgrade to a 1 for your shot to win Nationals in JULY. I will include the race numbers that are still pinned on the Jersey so you can act like you just came from a huge NRC event. TOOLS… all the stuff you take your bike apart an put it back together. Time Trial bike LOOKS super fast.
Maybe he should just take a vacation and chill out for a while. He’ll be kicking himself in a few months when the riding jones bites him again.
That is why cycling is so addictive. There are times when you are getting your a** kicked in a race or club ride and you think to yourself “This sucks, I’m selling everything and taking up a new hobby” Then, the next day you just can’t wait to get out on the road.
The news this week is about Jan Ullrich’s return to racing. Der Kaiser finally started his season after a knee flareup caused him to ease up on his training.

Well, with the help of some old Yo Mamma jokes and a shout out to Wilmer Valderama for his awesome new show “Yo Mamma” here is how fat Jan Ullrich really is: (disclaimer, I can joke about this because like Jan, I am a fat cyclist)
