Absolutely diabolical the treatment handed out to Chris Froome and Team Sky. Urine, spitting, taunting, jeering, doping accusations, anger and cynicism,shoddy treatment from certain sections of the press, insinuations from one of the greatest liars in sports history. It was staggering the vitriol aimed at Froome and Sky.

He doesn’t ride with panache, he rides to numbers, he rides tempo, day in day out, he knows his limits and he’s not prone to panic. This doesn’t sit well with the traditionalists

The video from Team Sky’s car on Dutch Corner revealed a tirade of jeering, obscene hand gestures, missiles and drink being hurled at the car.

Missile-e1437857018854-600x37411356657_956133004439349_1599887658_n

Throughout all that, Froome has worn the abuse with dignity, but I suspect it galvanized an already strong, focussed and well drilled team into fortress Sky. Perhaps they took the anger hurled at them and turned it around to help drive their victory?

Although Froomey himself said it wasn’t as bad as the press made it out to be.

“There have been thousands upon thousands of fans who are just happy to see the race and happy to cheer all the riders, and that is the Tour de France that I fell in love with, and it hasn’t changed in that sense.”

Also, Froomey thanked his fellow riders and contenders for their support.

“That, to me, has been the most telling to sign – to have even our rivals, our biggest enemies on the road, if you like, coming up to us or even going up to the media and saying, ‘Listen, this isn’t right what is happening to Team Sky. This isn’t right what is going on and how you guys are being treated by certain spectators out on the road’.

“And actually, riders even saying, ‘Listen, if it continues we are going to stop the race, we are going to form a protest’.

Zeppole Hunt

images (1)

Some of you would have heard that I’m on the hunt for the best Zeppole in Adelaide, and have had some excellent feedback so far.

This informative piece of information from David S.

For the ignorant, as was I, zeppole are doughnuts made with a yeast-based dough, and originating in southern Italy.  (Note: doughnuts/donuts with a hole in the middle are properly called “American doughnuts” – fast-food convenience for cutting down the cooking time.)

Kitchener buns (prior to 1917 known as Berliner buns) are another form of doughnut, often filled with cream.  These originated in Germany.

In earlier ages, even pancakes were made with yeast-based batters rather than with chemical leavening.

Prime Zeps, with readers feedback, can be located at:

  • Cafe Nano’s, Ebeneezer Place
  • PastaDeli in Glynburn Rd have really great Zeppoles. Recently tried them 4 weeks ago! Excellent.
  • Caparezza Espresso Bar, definitely the best, super soft in the middle
  • Shit coffee but GREAT zeppole: Boccelli Wakefield St
  • Pave mate, Pave (Norwood Parade)
  • The best zippoli / zeppole are sold from the Arena Community Club during the Italian Carnivale Festival hosted every year in the botanic gardens of Adelaide.
  • I reckon there’s one nona who makes them for all the cafes up and down the parade- same as kids soccer club and they’re pretty fkn good.  Argo buy from her, pretty sure Pave do as well
  • Try Caparezza in James Place in the city a small Italian Café, might be worth your while giving it a go with the Nutella spread also…
  • I had a great zeppole at La Moka in Peel St a few weeks ago. No-one makes them like my Nonna unfortunately; they’re a bit off-limits to most other cyclists.
  • Panini Brothers at Newton
  • I had an awesome one at Cibo Henley Beach a couple of weeks ago. Only got to eat about a quarter of it, my 8 year old boy ate the rest while I was waiting for his shake.
  • +1 for Nano. Grab a Nano stick or pizza square while youre at it
  • Paddys Lantern for the win according to my wife. I grew up in Newton in the 70s and 80s so zeppole were the holy grail of food. My neighbour would make them for us. The smell of them cooking while we riding our bikes and playing cricket is etched in my brain. Damn it im going into town to get one before work, so much for hitting the trails before work!
  • Sarah and I just knocked off two at Lamoka in Peel Street. They went alright too! This was yours…..there were two of them….but then they disappeared! Great coffee and a friendly crew. Just don’t tell anyone or they will become too busy! ;o)

Gabrielle saved the best till last – Cherry and almond tart (la tarte amandine aux cerises)

  • 350 g sweet shortcrust pastry
  • 60 g unsalted butter, softened, plus extra for greasing
  • 2 eggs
  • 50 g caster sugar
  • 50 ml pouring cream
  • 100 g almond meal
  • 600 g pitted fresh cherries (see Note)
  • icing sugar, for dusting
  • fresh cherries, to serve

Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Lightly grease a 23 cm tart tin with removable base.

Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured work surface until about 3 mm-thick. Line the prepared tin with pastry and blind bake for 8-10 minutes with baking weights. Remove the weights and bake for a further 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, using electric beaters, beat the butter, eggs, sugar, cream and almond meal until well combined. Spread the almond cream over the pastry, then scatter with the pitted cherries, pressing them slightly into the almond cream. Bake for 25 minutes or until the pastry is golden. Remove the tart from the oven and allow to cool, then dust with icing sugar and serve with a few fresh cherries on the side.

For a while it looked like Michael Mathews might take out this years honours, but he was able to gain some relief from his injures encountered in the first week and pulled away to finish 30 minutes ahead of this years Lantern Rouge Sebastian Chavanel from FDJ, who rode in at 89:43:13, some 04:56:59 behind Chris Froome.

Sebastian, brother to Sylvain Chavanel, one of the leaders of the Swiss I Am team, was a middling sprinter before becoming a key support rider on FDJ.

“Being the Lantern Rouge means one thing, that you finished in Paris. And here at this year’s Tour there are a lot of riders that can’t say this. This is my third Tour de France, and by far my hardest. And I think everyone here will say that this was a very, very hard Tour. There are a lot of riders that would like to be in my place.”

Chapeau Sebastian for finishing a gruelling and unforgiving race.

TdF – the last week

Well, what a last week that was.

Stage 20

Frenchman Thibaut Pinot salvaged something with victory in Saturday’s 20th stage.

Thibaut Pinot

But it was the battle between Froome and Quintana that really mattered.

1647983-34957595-2560-1440

Saturday night’s epic ride up the 13.8km Alpe d’Huez was some of the best riding I have seen at the Tour. 

He said he would attack on the Mountain, and he did.

bettiniphoto_0150248_1_full_670

After an attempt on the Col de la Croix de Fer, Quintana launched with 12.4km to go on Alpe d’Huez. He struggled to escape the clutches of Wouter Poels and Richie Porte from Team Sky, but he slowly pulled away.

A brilliant ride was unfortunately not quite enough, with Froome and Porte riding tempo up the mountain, never panicking, and riding in the knowledge that making up 2:34 was going to be nigh on impossible if he rode true to form.

Nonetheless, it was an audacious bid by Quintana that will proved :12 shy of what he needed. Quintana’s ride up Alpe de Huez was completed in 39:23, the 22nd quickest ascent.

And who could forget the two Aussie hard men of the tour, Adam Hansen and Michael Matthews. These two Aussies just finished the best race of their lives. Not because they won anything, but because they finished.

Broken ribs for Mathews and a separated shoulder AC joint for Adam are both hellish injuries for cyclists.

Matthews-2-GW TourDeFrance2015StageThreeAdamHansenFinish

Matthews could barely breathe for a week, while Hansen could hardly grip the handlebars. Just how they both managed to finish all the mountain stages is beyond belief.

And speaking of Adam, who now has finished the three Grand Tours 4 seasons in a row, he continued the tradition on Dutch Corner.

Wednesday legs Cyclist of the Week

This weeks featured rider, comes from all the way from the west, Anna MasseyIMG_8292 (1)

Anna is a member of the South Perth Roullers and has recently taken a trip over to Italy, what a great time of the year to be over there.

What are you currently riding?

Aura Stratos II

IMG_6659

Check them out here – Aura Cycles

What bike do you covet?

Canyon Speedmax CF 9.0

8_46479_06_02_09

How many bikes do you own?

4

How do you store your bikes?

Road bike in the house, others in the shed

What cycling specific tools do you have in your “bike shed”?

Oh geez, this is a good test. Firstly a bike stand for maintenance, a pump obviously, torque wrench, spanner, chain whip, tyre levers as my digits are precious and weak! I’m sure there are others but I don’t use them or know what they do!

Do you do all your own maintenance or do you use a LBS? If so, which one?

If LBS stands for Live in Boyfriend Service then yes I use that. Thank you Ryan Fynn.

What is your pet hate about cycling?

Cyclists moaning about cars then going and doing the wrong thing themselves.

What do you love about cycling?

Friends and exploration.

Other than yourself, who is your favourite cyclist?

I think Emma Pooley is a great role model. She is both down to earth and competitive. I think most people could relate to how she got into cycling and that makes her achievements more tangible for people. Not that I think I could be World Champ!

Giro-Rosa-Emma-Pooley-680x379

What is your craziest/fondest cycling memory?

I love most Saturday mornings cruising around on my bike, in the sun, with my boyfriend, looking for a new breakfast spot.

What is your favourite post ride coffee spot?

I have lots. I am a coffee snob but also like being by the river or ocean. Sadly in Perth it’s rare to find them together!

If you were to buy a post ride reward, what would it be?

Gluten free salted caramel slice or coke or chocolate milkshake with a coffee shot. Mmmmmmmm

Do you have a nickname on the bike?

I’m hoping I’d ditched it now so won’t bring it back up.

Finish this sentence “When I’m on my bike I…..”

Always struggle to decide if it’s ok to stop to take another photo!

If you could ride anywhere in the world, where would it be?

I’m off to Italy with the bike in a few weeks, so at the moment I’ll say there.

What is your favourite training route and who with?

Allez Bitches recovery ride followed by coffee and breakfast.

IMG_5975

What is the biggest cycling lie you have told your partner?

Telling him it’s best to rest, off the bike, when he’s sick but not taking my own advice. Is that a lie?

What would you like your partner to buy you for your next birthday?

Himself a cooking book ;p

Is there a local cycling outfit/company/cycling club/cycling group/person that you would like to plug?

Aura cycles (bike), South Perth Rouleurs (club) and Rapha (outfits)

spr-2015-header-14

Thanks Anna, looking forward to hearing how the trip to Italy went.
