Even in his confession, he wasn’t truthful. As my wife just said, the guy gets what he deserves and every lawsuit to come.

So, my wife, myself and mother-in-law just watched the first part of the Oprah interview with retired cyclist Lance Armstrong. After reading affadavits and ohter documents for the past few months, and really years, I can’t say that it really did anything for me, affecting my opinion one way or the other.
So this documentary on Levi was in theaters last night (for one night only!), and I missed it.
I’ve always liked Leipheimer, despite the recent doping admissions. I’m looking forward to this being available in January on DVD and Blu-Ray. I’m not even sure it played in any theaters here, but definitely want to check it out when it comes out on physical media early next year.
Check out the trailer and the official site below:
I saw this on one of the cycling lists I’m on, and thought it was a cool idea, and wanted to get the word out there. A new restaurant in downtown Durham is doing some Tour de France viewing parties that can educate those new to professional stage-racing and us old pro’s.
Starting this Saturday, Bull City Burger and Brewery in Durham is hosting viewing parties for four stages of the Tour de France. It should be a great opportunity for viewers of all levels and backgrounds to have a beer and burger and enjoy the race together.
Check it out! Details follow:
This July, Bull City Burger and Brewery* will hold weekly Tour de France viewing parties. The events will be hosted by Rusty Miller, cycling coach and former professional racer, and Peter Hymas, production editor at Cyclingnews.com, the world’s biggest cycling website. Rusty and Peter will provide inside color commentary to supplement television coverage and provide topical mini-clinics and Q&A sessions during commercial breaks. The viewing parties are meant to be inclusive of cycling fans from the hard-core passionate to the merely curious. They will follow a No Spoilers format so that those who have not watched the live morning broadcast will be able to enjoy the suspense of the stage finish.
Selected stages and times are:
Saturday July 2nd at 7:30pm: A Tour Primer for the Casual Observer. 8:00pm: Stage 1, Passage du Gois to Mont du Alouettes. Today’s stage winner will earn the first yellow jersey of the race.
Friday July 8th at 8:00pm: Stage 7, Le Mans to Chateauroux. A classic sprinter’s stage with finishing speeds near 40 mph.
Thursday July 14th at 8:00pm: Stage 12, Cugnaux to Luz-Ardiden. The long-awaited first mountaintop finish will reveal who is and isn’t capable of taking the yellow jersey to Paris. And, it’s Bastille Day.
Friday July 22nd at 8:00pm: Stage 19, Modane to Alpe d’Huez. Perhaps the most storied mountain in the history of the race.
*BCBB is a new restaurant in downtown Durham featuring local pasture-raised beef and seven beers brewed on-site. With the exception of the Locopops, soda fountain, and Heinz ketchup, every item and condiment on the menu (from buns to mustard to pickles) is made fresh in-house. 107 East Parrish Street. www.bullcityburgerandbrewery.com
Leopard-Trek’s Wouter Weylandt was fatally injured today in a crash on the third stage of the Giro d’Italia. The 26-year-old went down on the Passo del Bocco and was unconscious at the scene.
Paramedics worked to revive the Belgian, doing CPR for an extended period of time before airlifting him to a nearby hospital. Doctors were unable to revive Weylandt.
So just a few weeks after Time Warner Cable launched their app that allows you to watch TV on your iOS device, ESPN followed suit with a similar app. Unfortunately, I haven’t been able to use the TWC app as their signup process doesn’t recognize our TW account. ESPN’s app allows you to sample a bit before signing in/authenticating, so I checked out a few seconds of the Masters just now — nice quality. Unfortunately, I’ll eventually need to have that app authenticate through my cable provider as well. Need to make a phone call to get my account up and running.
As the Super Bowl gets ready to start here in a little bit, thought it was appropriate to post this today, though I really don’t see this happening anytime soon. You’re talking about talking a durable little book and replacing it with a $499+ fragile piece of hardware. Sure, it would offer up some cool applications, sharing and networking stuff, but so many head coaches are antiquated dinosaurs. I just don’t see it happening, nor really the need.
Gimmicky, but definitely unique — the concept would be to play a double-header set of NCAA basketball games: one with two service teams (Air Force Vs. Navy or the like), and then a game like Carolina versus Michigan State. But wait, would that be in lieu of the ACC/Big 10 Challenge?
It seems frivolous on a level that makes all the sporting event aircraft flybys look like nothing, but it would be a cool gesture for all those who are good enough to serve the United States in our armed forces.
The biggest race in American cycling these days is the Tour of California, with a lot of big teams showing up annually. Next year’s host cities were just announced. The link below has the announcement video.
