Tuesday Shorts 6/17

Dauphine/Suisse
Froome + kaboom = earthling. Garmin-Sharp pit bull wins the Dauphine. The final stage was a glorious race. Bert wins staring contest, had no team, still set off on his own trying to keep yellow. Valiant, but too little too late. What happens if Wiggo wins Suisse? Getting excited for France.

Pro Cycling on $10 a Day, just started reading this, it's interesting and entertaining so far. Cycling is a hard sport on many levels. Phil gives me hope that the sport is cleaner. 
Monday
Good Bikes ride. Leaving @ 6:30 from Good Bikes (on MLK across from Lowe's). It is intended to be a recovery pace, no-drop, skills-building/technique ride. Everyone is welcome. Hosted by University of Arkansas Cycling & Good Bikes. See Good Bikes or Arkansas Cycling on Facebook for more info.

Tuesday Night Worlds
Leaves @ 5:30 from TBR or @ 6 from Brits & Turks. Get ya some!

Wednesday
Happy Hour spin? Let me think on it. Forgot about the summer crit series (see below). I'm considering moving it to Thursday.

Summer Crit Series
Evans Events is putting on a summer crit series every Wednesday starting June 18th-Aug. 27th in Rogers. Local crits are a great way to get your feet wet if you are a first time racer. For the experienced it's about building/sharpening race fitness. Click here for more information.

Thursday
Athlete Forward/The Bike Route beginner ride. Leaving @ 6:00 from Owl Creek Middle School. Pace easy-moderate. No rider left behind.

The Highroller Cyclery ride. Leaving @ 6:15 from Baum Stadium. Usually about 30 miles or so. Check them out on Facebook for ride details.

Ride fast & be safe,
WHF
