Not a tweet, per se, but a tweet-sized snippet from this interview (http://nyvelocity.com/content/interviews/2014/phil-gaimon-interview) with Phil Gaimon.

Talking about his win at the Tour de San Luis:

Quote
that Quintana guy that beat me there...I think he might turn into a good bike racer some day

And on the diet of a pro-cyclist.

Quote
If you’ve got it, you’ve got it, and no amount of lactose is going to take it away. Quintana would have won that Giro on KFC if that’s what they gave him

Alright, one more... on the relationship between the big boys and local teams at races like California

Quote
The Euro teams would always look down on guys like me at races like Tour of Cali, and I understand that, because we sucked, and I sucked, and we were in the way a lot.

OK, this one I can't ignore, and it is fairly self-explanatory.

Quote
I was pleasantly surprised that's it's okay to poop in the RV before the start.

Cav vs. Hendo

OK, so not quite rumble in the jungle, but last night these tweets appeared on the interweb.

(https://pbs.twimg.com/media/Bq1cG74IEAAcyRF.jpg)

We can infer that there was some twitter DM exchange between the two beforehand, which Hendo decided to make public. As we've been discussing in the shoutbox, this could have three outcomes:

1. Hendo is motivated to help Greipel whitewash Cav and take the green jersey, and with it - revenge.
2. Cav is motivated to crush Lotto single-handedly, even taking it out on Cofidis riders for having the same colour jersey.
3. Cav and Hendo recreate Costa v. Barredo (2010) leaving Marcel Kittel to mop up the wins.

It all seems incredibly school-yard to me. But, as UKCyclingExpert asked:

Ah, so someone else felt that way too. Have to say, that was a really pathetic finish from Bakelants. Perhaps he was cooked after getting across the gap and that would certainly explain why he just sat on Lutsenko's wheel most of the time, but I was sooooo disappointed when he needlessly came through to the front in the last km. It was like he wanted to do a leadout.

This letter was sent to Alexandre Geniez of #fdj during the Tour de France.

It begins by describing how the writer shares common origins with Geniez and waxes momentarily lyrical about the writer's love of cycling.

And then it gets right to the point:

Quote from: Random fan
If possible, as a souvenir of your passage through Rodez, could you send me four [FDJ] jerseys:

2 x XXL
1 x XL
1 of a size appropriate for a 14 year-old girl

Thanks very much ...

Marvellous. I'm going to use that myself.

Unless the announcements haven't been immediate (not impossible, but out of character for Costa, who is very communicative online), it was a bit of a risk[1] to schedule a wedding right before a due date.
 1. And that was a bit of an understatement

I guess wedding dates are usually set more than 9 months in advance, but the bride was very much blooming in the wedding photo. (http://www.movenoticias.com/2015/11/rui-costa-casou-este-sabado/) Baby may have been slightly early, as all the newspaper report said was that he was due before the end of the year.

And now I have a Portuguese tabloid gossip page in my browsing history...

Is this seriously how a WorldTour team announces its existence to the world? :fp
For the full experience (and to preserve it for posterity), I took a screenshot:
(http://i68.tinypic.com/2nqzhbb.jpg)
No logo, no website, a Twitter name (not talking about the handle, but the name that you can give yourself) including completely unnecessary and awful-looking @ & _, and, that's the cherry on the top, not even a website. Not even a link to a temporary holding page, for crying out loud!!!

Ok, this is not a tweet, but an interview quote. #katusha Aleksander Kristoff was interviewed by NRK, the Norwegian National broadcasting service. They are not that much of a cycling channel really. I think that in  their own opinion, they cover all three sports: cross country skiing, alpine skiing and the biathlon!  However, this summer there isn't anything going on except some angry germans tearing down Hamburg and the Tour de France, so they cover cycling, on radio.

The question is whether the prestige of the Tour makes cyclists take larger risks than usual on the downhills, and Kristoff answers:

"People take more chances than in other races. If you get a good result in the Tour de France it is like winning one of the classics."

 :D  :cool

I hope (s)he put those back afterwards. Bastognes should go with the other biscuits like Lu or Prince.

I think there's also one location on the E17 where you get road signs in a configuration that says Gent alongside Wevelgem.

I never eat biscuits in this country. They put way too much sugar in them and it means that I have to drive all the way out to an "English shop" and act like a self-satisfied expat just to get some simple Digestives. Light of course, because there's palm oil in the regular ones.

I'm certain #lottokern provide their riders with bikes. Of course, that doesn't mean they will replace anything without question - but here, the rider really had no fault.
Still, the team manager won't be happy ... and will probably try to get the money back from whoever drove over it. (and rightfully so)

A bemused Tankink replies: "about 130km"

It would be fun to watch someone unknowingly walk into the lions den and debate LS, especially if the topic skewed towards racing history, along with the ethnic and linguistic background of various riders and fans. That would be worth the price of admission.

That is, indeed, an excellent post. Frankly, I am surprised. I go back to CN occasionally, seeking more frequent conversation, and within 5 minutes I am disenchanted by inane, irrational, and downright stupid posts. So, I never stay long enough to become anything more than a once a year, five minute, lurker. But this was an excellent post. Funny that, I remember Libertine Seguros, but I don't remember LS as being either a particularly persuasive poster, nor a negative force on the board. In short - my memory is neutral regarding Libertine.

However, the post is an excellent one.

Speaking of CN, has anyone kept track of Martin? I noticed a twitter prescence the other day, one that I think is the Martin that CN and VR knew and loved. Midge is another poster whom we have not seen here in a while - but who seems to be active on twitter. I may have to change my social media patterns.

Libertine Seguros is a very knowledgeable and generally well-articulated poster. She also does some great work with their Race Design thread.

Midge is another poster whom we have not seen here in a while - but who seems to be active on twitter. I may have to change my social media patterns.
Midge is very active on Twitter and also does stuff for VeloVoices, I think that's why she isn't as prolific a poster in here.

Libertine Seguros is a very knowledgeable and generally well-articulated poster. She also does some great work with their Race Design thread.

That was a very good post she wrote.  Like others I now avoid the clinic; about twice a week scan over less than half a dozen threads.  Very little of quality is posted there.

I like LS and virtually all she writes is worth reading but she has got the trajectory of Emma Pooley wrong and seems fixated on trying to make a narrative based on a wrong founding perception.  She hasn't worked out why Pooley was the "goto" girl for the jiffybag excuse.  Pooley was never asked if she had received the bag from Cope; Lawton had done his homework before he spoke to her.

Try and think what would have happened if Pooley was not date fixed at a race 1,000km away and could say said "yes, Cope did give me a jiffy bag". Think that one through real hard and get to the end.

Try and think why she might had responded in that way.  And for the answer to that we are back at the trajectory of Pooley through British Cycling. 

And to understand that we are back with Sutton and a possible gold/silver plan in 2008.

Not saying this is how it is for CB but if I was a journeyman pro who signed on for a modest foreign CT team and held on for eight years while it became a WT monster and completely rebuilt itself around the sport's biggest star, I probably wouldn't appreciate being compared to Froome either, even if it is for a bit of a laugh. But then I probably wouldn't respond by defending Froome or indeed respond at all.

Wonder if CB has got a ride for 2019?

what´s mad, is the hate for Froome goes beyong anything and anybody. Benedetti has flip all to do with Froome, yet a twitter guy who, like other few dozens of people, remember that Froome got 85th in Poland 7 years ago, takes the time to joke about Benedetti and accuses him of omertá.
Oufeh can well fyk off.

Seeing that the other day it brought up something I think about twitter which is unnecesary @ ing of people. The original tweet could have been made by saying Cesare Benedetti rather than @benedetticesare and so the original tweeter wanted him to see it and I actually think Benedettis response to being brought into it was fair enough.

Here's the explanation: Pacioni was called to the podium as the race organisers thought he finished third because the actual third place Malucelli had no timing chip on his bike. And they only realised this during the podium ceremony.

Good grief. If they had looked at the finish photo, or even just a replay of the sprint, they would have spotted this.

Victor Campenaerts of #lotto is down in Namibia training for an hour record attempt. He decided to enter the national TT championships.

https://twitter.com/VCampenaerts/status/1091695458777411586

Modest enough not to mention it, he won by a country mile but naturally he has no claim to the jersey.

He judiciously trimmed the Instagram pic he posted because he was wearing non-team issue socks: ;)

That's very decent from Coetzee (or poor from Campenaerts), I thought it would be way more, to be honest. In the Commonwealth Games last year he lost 5 minutes to Cam Meyer, over a shorter distance

I think there could be something to that. In response to those water bottle vests that were introduced a few years ago, this could be a great way to distribute food to your teammates mid-race. Perhaps not the most aerodynamic of helmet designs, it would certainly offer more protection to the rider, with the added bonus of providing extra sun-block.

Gent-Wevelgem is more than just a world tour race, they have 7 classes, hosting events for all sexes and various age brackets. In this aspect, the race has few equals. I think the Frankfurt based race Runt om something is a bit of the same, (and it is the same winner :P)
However, unless someone that saw what was happening live says that it was, it is just a badly timed photo and not a nazi salute there.

Interesting fact here. The girl on the far right of the podium is Zoe Backstedt, younger daughter of former Paris-Roubaix winner and Eurosport commentator, Magnus Backstedt. She won the Under 17 race. She is standing next to the Under 19 race winner, her sister, Elynor.

Like our Norwegian friend says, there were seven races at Gent-Wevelgem yesterday: Men elite, Women elite, Men U23, Men U19, Women U19, Men U17, Women U17.
On the winners' photo you see, from left to right:
Zoë Bäckstedt (Storey Racing, WU17), Elynor Bäckstedt (British national team, WU19), Kirsten Wild (WNT-Rotor, WE), Alexander Kristoff (UAE Team Emirates, ME), Jonas Rutsch (German national team, MU23), Quinn Simmons (US national team, MU19), Noah Detalle (VC Ardennes, MU17)
:)

And what's with the Nazi salute from the astronaut dude?  :-x
However, unless someone that saw what was happening live says that it was, it is just a badly timed photo and not a nazi salute there.
That's what I think too. He was either raising or lowering his arm at the moment the photographer shot the photo. It would be a really sloppy Nazi salute if it were one - bent arm, not much body tension ... :D

Gent-Wevelgem is more than just a world tour race, they have 7 classes, hosting events for all sexes and various age brackets. In this aspect, the race has few equals. I think the Frankfurt based race Runt om something is a bit of the same, (and it is the same winner :P)
Woah, don't butcher German race names there!
It's "Rund um den Finanzplatz Eschborn-Frankfurt" - or it used to be, the name has now been shortened to "Eschborn-Frankfurt". But really, its traditional (and therefore only proper) name is "Rund um den Henninger-Turm", named for the huge grain silo of the title sponsor, the Henninger brewery in Frankfurt-Sachsenhausen, around which the finishing circuit used to run.[1]

May Day is a big race day in Frankfurt, with races for the men elite, men U23, men U19 (as part of the German Bundesliga series), and U17, U15, U13, and U11. There is also a Jedermannrennen (cyclo-sportive), kids' 'races' (balance bikes and pedal bikes), a handbike race, and an inline-skate race ... but no separate women's race. There will be some girls in the lower age categories, but there's no women's junior or women's elite race.

Finally, on the astronaut kit:
That's the kit of Belgian cycling club VC Ardennes (https://www.vcardennes.be/). They partner with pro team Wanty-Gobert and are, for reasons passing understanding, sponsored by a Belgian animated movie that came out in 2008 (https://www.cinenews.be/fr/films/fly-me-to-the-moon-3d/).

My  defense:
Dear comisssaire  :snooty
I wasn't butchering it, I was more like woah-i'll-be-late-for-work typing it while brushing my teeth running out the door with my shoelaces untied. Impossible to remember everything!

And actually I really appreciate the atmosphere created by these all-classes race days. While some of the other Belgian races seem to promote a culture where all the tough guys can come out to drink lots of beer, drive drunk from hellingen to hellingen and discuss podium girls and E3 poster girls vintages while listening to Armstrong talk in their VIP tent  (ok I am exaggerating) these races, primarily Eschborn-Frankfurt and Gent-Wevelgem have a more family Sunday atmosphere to them. (Maybe if we disregard the heavy metal hill in E-F :) ) 

There is a time and place for most things :) but let's keep them this way!

Quote
Jurgen Van den Broeck thinks that Kittel should mainly look at himself. "He has to wonder if he still likes to do it," says the former pro.

"The stories are circulating that he drinks too many beers and too much wine."

"He would be too busy doing other things and not training, I hear. If you see his performance this season, those stories will only be confirmed. He is also not driven on difficult parts. He just can't follow "

"Anyone who trains a bit and is a professional should be able to follow this course in this peloton. He will just be driven away between the trees. That is sad for someone like Kittel. He is also not very old yet." Kittel will be 31 next month.

"I think that Kittel's head is not right. It is not that he has a lot of setbacks. He has to look at himself. I doubt whether he still likes it."

I don't get it - whatever got Pat's goat - but Vayer sure hooked him. Plenty of replies to both in a similar vein. Not hard to guess from "kiss of the devil" that Vayer doesn't like LeFevre, either.

OTOH, Alaphillipe should be happy.

You know, it has become an annual thing, right? Apparently it's been going on for more than a few years now, I'm told. It certainly does seem a bit crazy, but I think doing downhill jumps like those are crazy even if no one is underneath!

That looks a bit more like expected - instead of the one-legged trainer. I went back to the one-legged trainer vid to check the thigh scarring. Most of the thigh isn't visible, though - covered by shorts. With good healing, the injuries shouldn't be painful at this date with a little movement. There is a little scarring visible around the knee, but could be old - no telling.

What this photo DOES tell us, though, is that Ineos is taking the high-$$$$ route in recovery. The leg isn't in a cast - it's in a brace. Which means they are letting him out of the immobilization suit on occasion. This fits with the one-legged trainer video. It is interesting, though, that they have him in a neck brace here. OTOH, that could be for reasons other than vertebral injury - they could be using the neck brace to stabilize and keep the compound leg fracture under extension pressure - to keep the leg from compressing the bones during healing. Which the musculature will naturally tend to do. End up with the leg a tad shorter than before. Better if not, eh?

But, nah, that idea about the neck brace is probably rubbish. I don't see any accompanying restraint at the ankle.

Anyway, this is a LOT more like what I would expect to see after a compound femoral fracture, than one-legged training.

I thought Taylor Phinney was a bit of a one-off, what with the spaced-out speech mannerisms. So otherworldly, dude. Totally. For real. But no, it appears that val-speak has survived. It got together with a touch of late 60's "hippie" culture, and some surfer speak, and took root in a Colorado subculture. This is not a tweet, but it is certainly "noteworthy and/or frivolous".

Listen to the TJ Eisenhart interview, and be prepared to take a mental journey and get blown away.

No need. The "Boulder Dude" already has a well established place in anthropological studies.
(And Taylor's take on it, with all the annoying affectations, is particularly off-putting. I can't stand any interviews with him. I'm guessing TJ isn't much more palatable.)

I know that Jalabert has been in this game for a number of years, but I had no idea that Vino even trained in the various disciplines.


(This has got to sting for a certain other former-pro-rider-turned-iron-man who's no longer to allowed to compete.)

------------------------

Just taking a closer look at all this now.
It's a totally BS claim from an Official Team Twitter account.  :secretlol

Vino was 92nd overall. His "1st Place" was strictly in the amateur 45-49 division.
04:28:47

Jaja was 171st overall. He won the 50-54 division. Not all that far off his younger ex-peloton comrade though.

It's not unheard of.
Sadly, the 'big' teams (and their riders) often display an attitude towards smaller teams and less-known riders of pretty much "get the flip out of the way when the real guys are coming, you peasants".
