The end of the Amgen Tour of California brings to light the stunning resurrection of British Sky Team rider Bradley Wiggins to the forefront of professional cycling since he almost but disappeared from pro cycling competition in 2013.
“I am very happy for this victory, and for the good work of my team because [they]were pulling on the front from the start until the finish. Yeah, it was a very big stage for us,” said the Slovakian road champion in the post-race press conference.
“Sometimes you just have a voice inside you that says go,” said Phinney. “It just got more and more painful as I went on but I knew that if I made it, it would be worth it, and it definitely, definitely was. It’s the best way to win, to win like that.”
The mercury and the pavement went up and down, but mostly up, as young Will Routley, King of the Mountain’s leader looked like the freshest rider in today’s long break, winning not only ALL three KOM’s, but also Stage 4’s final sprint!
NYPD may technically have been on the side of the law when arresting one of the most famous celebrities in New York, Alec Baldwin. But where is the law in protecting cyclists and pedestrians you might well ask.
Apparently the dichotomy of arresting cyclists for riding the wrong way on a street while motorists who mow down cyclists and pedestrians rarely step foot in jail is just too ridiculous for even the most polite celebrity to bear.
