Landis the new Lance?

I can't believe the remarks I read from Lance on Landis' win. One thing for sure...Landis is no Lance; he has much more class than the ass from Tex-ass. I certainly don't hear Landis talking smack...except that he's going to go race a few crits (what is he nuts?). I often read the blog funny tan lines and I think the guy covers the topic pretty well. Read it here.

Weddings and Things

I watched my best friend suze get married this weekend. It was a perfect setting; Lopez Island in the San Juan (of Pacific Northwest), sunny and 72 degrees. My buddy Guy and I flew up in his little Cessna - landed on the remote island and walked to the church. Wow, it really sucks to be me! (grin)

Ulrich's TDF Doping Plan

PER documents found in Operation Puerco...check this out!

For the first seven days of the Tour, Dr. Fuentes prepared him a series of hormones, insulin, cortisone, testosterone and blood transfusions, the newspaper alleged. It claimed that there was a "Roadbook" for the Tour 2005, which investigators link to Ullrich.

On the first day, according to the SZ, the hormone HZ was listed, the second day insulin I-3, the hormone TGN and cortisone, the third day TGN and PCH (a testosterone shot), on the fourth day HMG, a hormone mixture, a "rest day" on the fifth day, the sixth day insulin I-3, and on the last day, the re-infusion of his own blood, as well as insulin I-3 and vitamin E.


Just landed back in Seattle yesterday. Its time to ride in weather that is far more normal...
Actually, I'm climbing aboard my R3 sweet machine in just 10 minutes. See ya!

One word...Calzati

Thank goodness for Calzati, the young frenchman that stole stage 8 of the TDF yesterday...or Frenchmen around the country would be ending their life after the PK loss in world cup last night. GO FLOYD...or shall we say Praying Landis.

One Dress

How cool is this...
A woman is making a statement against fashion and the foolish buying of trends. She is wearing the same brown dress for a year. I dig it! Check it she attempts to make it work, and work, and work....

Our TDF Jersey design...

My friend Guy is really baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaahd. He asked that sheep/goats be part of this year's tour de france cycling trip. I decided to design an official jersey for the adventure. I think he is going to love it.

Tour de France 2006

Saturday, July 01, 2006


The french say that sex is as much a part of politics as drugs are a part of cycling. Oddly in the post Lance era the biggest dopping scandal rocks the tour de france just 24 hours before its start.
Oscar Sevilla, Jan's teammate from T-mobile was found to be named in the Spanish blood doping investigation. He along with 158 other althetes from several sports were "black listed." Now many complain that if these riders (Jan, Basso, Mancebo, etc.) were only accusted not proven guilty. However, I think about the inverse....what if we let them continue to ride in the tour...then the focus would be on them and their performance. I think it would destroy the race more than not having them in it.
Jan did win the tour de swiss...he looks a little cocky here for his medical.

Ivan's a pretty handsome guy...but gosh those tan lines are a bit much. I do notice that these riders have no pecks. I kinda like them that way.

Here georgie is amuzed that his name wasn't on the list. Okay...kidding, but seriously, I think they are all doping...WADA just doesn't know what it is...yet.
