I want this book! Buy it here

When the snow starts to melt and the frozen earth turns to a gooey brown mud cycling returns... baseball schmaseball, this sh*t's intense!

I hope you got a chance to catch the Tour of California last week (Lance is back!), we caught glimpses on Versus while in the city. BTW if you haven't heard of Versus on cable you need to check it out- they have the most AMAZING coverage of professional cycling I've ever seen! We watched the Tour de France last summer with great fervor- the sounds of the the French police sirens, motorcycles and cheering fans with cowbells (and of course the notorious Satan figure from Germany) still ring in my ears- can't wait for this years season! It's going top be GREAT

The fire is back let the sap rise!

also check out Graham Watson's incredible cycling photos here

Wow - I love your blog and your illustrations. Thanks for visiting so I could find you. Except for not being endless (for loooong rides), I'd say you already have a pretty great place to live! Have a great weekend!

I find professional cycling SO much more interesting than baseball. What do you think about Floyd Landis?
