Taylor Phinney Blogs Through the Burning Hot Hills of the Vuelta a Espana Tour of Spain Pro Cycling Race

While we've been focusing on the USA Pro Cycling Challenge somewhat, the Vuelta a Espana is well underway, just not on my television. Well, neither is the USAPCC, but I've been finding ways to get a look in through the kindness of strangers. Anyway, I took a look at the Universal Sports page at the bottom there, which links to Taylor Phinney's blog here...

There's something very relevant about these descriptions of pain and doubt. Something very easy to remember, but easy enough to forget, so we go out and do it again. Phinney has a good way of expressing it so that even those of us who've never been front runners like he has can at least know we share some of the same emotions and sensations.

Sheldon Brown Rolls On: The Bike World Celebrates His Web and Words

The world, the internet, cycling and the art of sharing lost a major force in the form of Sheldon Brown, whose work remains at SheldonBrown.com. He was an incredible resource of cycling knowledge. By all accounts he was also a man of good humor and skateylove (bikeylove) too. Many accounts tell of his helpfulness online, by email, and in person. Timv has mentioned Sheldon often to me in our various discussions, including where I might find out more about my 1980s Centurion bike, learn about fixies, and much more.
