It is so great to start seeing more coverage of women's racing! These highlights from the 2014 UCI Road World Championships give equal coverage to both the men and women's races and provide an exciting recap for everyone.
The women's road race (starting at video marker 30:28), was particularly gritty with an unbelievable pile up crash at 30:56. Although the crash is a bit terrifying, the effort and athleticism of these women is quite inspirational. So, happy riding ladies!
This semi-traditional ride can be difficult or impossible if the weather does not cooperate. Right now, the forecast for Thursday looks very favorable. Departure time will be 9 a.m. from Sticks and Stones. That gives everyone a couple of hours to ride and still be home in time to help out a little in the kitchen and carve the turkey.

Today I'd like to begin a new feature on the blog: the Roller Video Review
If you come across a TV show, documentary, movie or YouTube video that holds your attention for at least 30 minutes while cycling indoors, please let us know so we can link it and share.
I can think of no better way to start it off than by sharing an excellent documentary by the folks over at ESPN's series 30 for 30.
It's called "Slaying the Badger" and documents Greg LeMond's relationship with his teammate Bernard Hinault.
From the tagline: American Greg Lemond helped teammate Bernard Hinault, The Badger, win the Tour de France as teammates. In 1986, it was supposed to be LeMond's turn, but would it be? It was a turning point in cycling.
You can watch the whole thing on Netflix, ESPN or YouTube here:
