In a change from norm, the ToB had to contend with rain for most days, but that didn’t stop Sir Brad from taking the Motherlands Tour.

Greg Lemond v’s Lance Armstrong

“If Lance is clean, it is the greatest comeback in the history of sports. If he isn’t, it would be the greatest fraud.”  (Greg Lemond – from bicycling).

“He’s destroyed people and if you go against him, he tries to destroy you. He’s been trying that for ten years with me.” (Greg Lemond – from cyclingnews).

Letting bygones be bygones and perhaps signaling a warmer relationship, Lance Armstrong’s Mellow Johnnys bike store in Austin, Texas will carry the new Lemond road bikes. (From twistedspokes)

Who would have thought!

Next we’ll hear is that Pat MacQuaid is out of a job!



Interbike is the largest bicycle trade event in North America, bringing together manufacturers, retailers, industry advocates and media to conduct the business of cycling. Established in 1982, the show gathers more than 1,200 cycling-related brands and more than 25,000 total attendees annually.

A few photos from this years show.

Personally, I think that the Eurobike, held a few weeks before Interbike, puts on a far better show.
