Read a recap of yesterday’s Elite Nats events at USA Cycling.

It seems [the UCI] are set on destroying the sport… I don’t think any decisions are made with the athletes in mind. They don’t seem to understand the sport. It’s as if track is an inconvenient add-on behind road cycling.

Sir Chris Hoy talks more smack on Union Cycliste Internationale for their absurd qualification processes. I’m sure a lot of track cyclists share his point of view, especially considering how UCI is treating the Olympic track cycling events.

Canadian Cyclist interviews Pat McQuaid — Part 5


I skipped the last two parts of this extended interview with the president of UCI because they didn’t have much to do with track cycling. But in this segment, McQuaid basically calls bullshit on Chris Hoy and Vicky Pendleton for whining about not being able to do the Commonwealth Games because they need the Olympic qualification points from the European Championships. He basically calls them whiny little brats and there’s no reason they can’t do both competitions. Pretty easy for him to say, right? But I guess he’s got a point.

If you haven’t seen the other segments from this interview, definitely check out Part 1 and Part 2.

Rad video from California Is A Place (who brought you the Scrapertown video earlier this year) and sponsored by K-Swiss. The subject is Brandon Correia, owner of Godspeed Courier in SF. Beautiful work! This video is gonna be huge.

Meet Dan Angus, bike addict.

This video from the Biking Brisbane project is the first in a series of interviews with member’s of Brisbane’s cycling community. Dan talks about his garage full of bikes, living with an addiction to bikes and how cycling has factored into his life over the years.

Being an in-depth study of character, this video creates a stark contrast to the simplicity and serenity of Don’s bike check video I posted this morning — but I think a lot of us can relate equally to both.

What an awesome image.  Guenter Haritz (2nd. from left) winning gold in the Team Pursuit at the 1972 Munich Olympics on a Flema titanium(!) track frame.  Haritz’s coach was skeptical about the titanium frame at first until riding tests had him convinced.

Speedbicycles has a great interview with Fritz Fleck, the innovative German builder who was making the first (probably) titanium race bikes under the Flema brand name.  Read the interview here.
