Many, many thanks to Sean Weide for his assistance in lining up our guests this week. We begin with Olympian and Tour de France pro rider Brent Bookwalter. A bit jet-lagged from his trip back from Rio, Brent nonetheless offers us a great glimpse into this year’s Olympic races as the only American to ride both the road race and the time trial. He got to see Rio from a unique perspective and tells us about his experiences. Brent is also deeply involved with the Association of National Professional Road Cyclists here in the U.S working tirelessly for the rights of cyclists including salaries, benefits, and retirement. And, to “give it back” there’s Brent’s “Bookwalter Binge Gran Fondo” in Otober....

We have two great guests for our final show of 2015. First up is popular Velo News associate editor Caley Fretz. Caley has written so much about our sport and this past week had two articles published – both of which grabbed my attention. There were actually two separate entries about the first subject, transgender cyclocross racer Molly Cameron. The first, on December 11th said she wouldn’t be permitted to race in the master’s men’s events; and the second, published just a few days later, said she would. And, while this isn’t what Caley and I talked about for this on air conversation, both are fitting for this...

We’ve seen more than our share of crashes in this year’s event. And, we’ve seen controversy. So, what’s left? Well, how about something a little more techy-geeky? Dr. John Eric Goff, physics professor at Lynchburg College in Virginia, does a little calculating – PRE-race, to predict finishing times for all 21 stages of the Tour de France; and, he’s been doing this for a few years now. How accurate is he? And, how does he do it? Just you wait and see. Dr. Goff, author of Gold Medal Sports, is interested in the physics of sports and is off to Sheffield, England for a one-year sabbatical that...

Rice I think we really nailed a great show this week! With African rider Daniel Teklehaimonot in the polka dot jersey raising his arms on the podium and the maillot jeune handed off once again as race leader Tony Martin had to abandon after Stage 6 with a fracture of his shoulder, this year’s Tour de France has been nothing less than thrilling. One of the most interesting ways to follow the race is to log on to liveupdate.com and follow moment by moment as veteran journalists Charles Pelkey and Patrick O’Grady detail each stage from start to finish. Even without the visuals, the colorful commentary takes you right there AND you can participate in it...
