I’m a big fan ofHandmade Cyclist‘s posters – these beautiful illustrated pieces are thoughtful, quirky and like nothing else out there. In celebration of the upcoming Roubaix Sunday and then the Ardennes, I thought I would bring these fantastic Routes posters to your attention!

Every now and again something pops up on Twitter that leaps out and grabs my attention. And that’s exactly what this stunning poster by Dan Mather celebrating the Classics did the other day. [Note: Word on the tweets is that this is selling out fast – if you want one, order it NOW.]

I said this earlier today on Twitter: the CIRC folk could have saved themselves a lot of time if they’d just read crankpunk.com in the first place. It was a bit of a glib comment but, a little amazingly, it seems that the CIRC folk did indeed do just that when doing research for the report, as an excellent article by Cillian Kelly of Irish Peloton on here last year makes the footnotes on page 150.


A moment for celebration?

No, not really. The real fact of the matter is that this report should never have been necessary and it wouldn’t have been had the authorities, the teams, the riders, race organisers and journalists (I’m getting deja vu here) not been such a motley crew of cretins and cowards.

CIRC has said very very little that people close to pro cycling did not know already – if there is a…

Sometimes I get a comment to an article and begin to write a reply but as I am in the middle of the process, I realise that the thing is becoming an article in itself. I’m not putting this up to have a pop at the commentator but I believe that this all concerns a very important topic in light of the reporting on the recent CIRC report and the Knaven issue. In fact, it’s important in relation to the whole sorry history of doping in our beloved sport.

The comment read:

“I have to say that I really do find your articles to be quite good and I appreciate that you keep on tilting at windmills.I do, however, object to the idea that news should be ever delivered with anything other then objectivity. Your site is not a news site, it’s an op-ed site. There is absolutely nothing wrong…

On a gorgeous but windy day in Tuscany, the ninth Strade Bianche saw much of the peloton dusted up and out well before the last 10km when it was apparent that the winner would be one of Alejandro Valverde (Movistar), Greg van Avermaet (BMC) or Zdenek Stybar (Etixx-Quick Step). They were pedal for pedal until the last crushing incline saw Stybar put the others to the sword with a kick and a win.

Anyone who saw Saturday’s Omloop Het Nieuwsblad will almost certainly say that it is one of the best races, well, ever in the history of roads. So it’s an almost exclusive OHN Tweets of the Week: we have Wolfpacks, beardies, bad predictions and bad, bad tactics. Settle down with some frites and mayo, because we’re off!

It was another Belgian race with Etixx-QuickStep doing the majority of the work for the majority of the race – but the finale couldn’t have been more different from yesterday. Mark Cavendish ensured his team wouldn’t get another spanking when they got into the team bus by passing Alexander Kristoff (Katusha) in the last few metres for his second Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne victory.
