It is morning. You are slow-rolling off the exit ramp, nearing the end of the long-ass commute from your suburban enclave. You have seen the rise of the city grow larger and larger in your windshield as you crawled through sixteen miles of bumper-to-bumper traffic. You foolishly believed that, now that you are in the city, your hellish morning drive is coming to an end.

Just then! I emerge from nowhere to whirr past you at twenty-two fucking miles per hour, passing twelve carlengths to the stoplight that has kept you prisoner for three cycles of green-yellow-red. The second the light says go, I am GOING, flying, leaving your sensible, American, normal vehicle in my dust.

You seethe in anger that is righteous and right and patriotic.

I am a cyclist. I am here to fuck you up.

Here’s how I’m doing it: I am squeezing between your passenger…

Dr Burnley's Third Eye

This year’s Tour de France is developing into a bit of a split race, being both exciting by stage and predictable by General Classification (GC).  This was most clearly demonstrated by the blistering performance of yesterday’s stage winner Steve Cummings of MTN-Qhubeka (the African team’s first stage win, on Mandela Day, no less), followed by Chris Froome hoovering up all attacks against him.  It was an eventful ride for Team Sky, with fists, saliva and urine apparently being thrown at them.  They are currently the sport’s bad guys, for no reason other than dominance.  The last team to dominate like Sky did was one of the liveries led by Lance Armstrong, and Sky’s tactics and public relations stance continue to draw uncomfortable parallels with the Armstrong era.  This suspicion has led to calls for Sky (and others) to be more transparent about their power data in particular, since the view…

  • Will Barta combines a debut with a comeback February 23, 2019
    When Will Barta suffered a broken femur at last year's under-23 Giro d'Italia, the injury not only signalled a premature end to his season, but it also risked forcing him to wait another year before making the step up to WorldTour level. The American youngster had drawn the eye of several teams thanks to his performances at Hagens Berman Axeon, but […]
  • Kung: If you're in shape, you're in shape February 22, 2019
    Stefan Küng's decision to join Groupama-FDJ after spending his entire career at BMC meant that the Swiss rider would face a raft of changes in 2019, from his racing schedule to his time trial bike. On the evidence of stage 3 of the Volta ao Algarve, the transition has been relatively seamless. Although it was only his third race day of the season, Küng […]
  • New sensation: Pogacar lights up the Volta ao Algarve February 22, 2019
    As the podium ceremonies in Lagoa came to an end after stage 3 of the Volta ao Algarve, Tadej Pogacar dutifully joined stage winner Stefan Küng and points leader Fabio Jakobsen in uncorking the espumante and spraying the crowds below, but it was striking that the Slovenian refrained from bringing the bottle to his lips afterwards, instead holding it almost f […]
