There’s an interview with Jim Ochowicz, former pro, cycling advocate, team manager, consultant, and friend to Lance over at bike.com. That’s one hell of a resume to show people and I bet there are a fair few pros on the circuit today who would mind having that kind of future after cycling.
I mentioned Fi’zi:k’s new Arione road saddle a few days ago and there is now a first thoughts review of it over at cyclingnews. There’s also a few interesting stories over in their most recent news section, including vague details of Beloki’s new team, the row between Ullrich and Bianchi and a report about Baden Cooke that shows a less glamorous side to being a pro. Read it all here.
The whole issue of indoor mountain biking was raised yesterday and I have to say initially I had by reservations about the idea.
