Asshole Spectator Grabs Cyclist's Handlebars, Causes Broken Collarbone

Australian cyclist Loren Rowney was in full sprint, gunning for first place at the Molecaten Drentse 8—a race in the Netherlands—when some asshole reached his hand out (seemingly on purpose) and grabbed her handlebars, causing her to spill to the pavement.

Cyclist Jens Voigt Breaks Record With Over 204 Laps In An Hour

German cyclist Jens Voigt rode 51.115 kilometers—or almost 32 miles—in an hour at the Velodrome Suisse in Switzerland tonight. It's tiring to just read those words.

Two Cyclists Engage In Sad Slap Fight In Middle Of Vuelta A España

Man, if there was evidence that cyclists are not really 'bout that life, this incredibly weak slapfest between Ivan Rovny and Gianluca Brambilla during the 16th stage of the Vuelta a España is it. Are they swatting at flies or trying to hit each other? » 9/08/14 2:46pm 9/08/14 2:46pm

The Worst Road Users, Ranked

The streets are not safe. Lurking around every corner there is an asshole cyclist or a maniacal UPS driver ready to plow into anyone in sight. In our parks, children and the elderly are routinely yelled at by runners, cyclists, and stoners on longboards (watch out, breh). And in our cities, uniformed officers are a… » 9/04/14 4:19pm 9/04/14 4:19pm

Sheep Smokes Cyclist In Head-To-Head Race

I have no idea why this sheep was just hanging out on this road, or why it decided to race this cyclist, but I am going to imagine that it simply stands in that spot all day every day, just waiting for some dummy on a bike who needs a lesson in what real speed looks like. » 8/04/14 10:57am 8/04/14 10:57am

How Vincenzo Nibali Attacked A Quaint And Sinister Tour De France

In a Tour De France marred by crashes, hostile weather, and high-profile abandonments, Vincenzo Nibali never fell off his bike. Most riders tend to hit the deck at least once, given the distance and variability involved. The Tour spanned 3,653 kilometers across four countries and dozens of different riding surfaces… » 7/29/14 5:23pm 7/29/14 5:23pm

This Is What Your Legs Look Like After A Stage Of The Tour de France

Bartosz Huzarski posted this picture of his veiny-ass legs to Facebook after completing the 145 km 18th stage of the Tour de France.

This Year, Everyone At The Tour De France Is Crashing Out

The opening stage of this year's Tour de France was a blatant attempt to get Mark Cavendish his first yellow jersey. Organizers kicked off the race with a pancake-flat run into Harrogate, UK, where Cavendish's mother is from.

The Tour De France Is Agony For The Spectators, Too

Whenever I hear hardcore cycling fans explain the Tour de France to novices, they seem to emphasize one aspect of the race—the suffering—above the rest. Sure, they talk about the sprints and the hills and the strategy, and explain how the cobbles of northern France, when wet, make the road as slippery as a skating… » 7/17/14 4:01pm 7/17/14 4:01pm

Experience Tour de France Mayhem First-Hand From New On-Bike Cameras

How The Rivalry That Was Supposed To Usher In Cycling's New Era Didn't

On Tuesday, May 29, 2012, Andy Schleck won the 2010 Tour De France. He finished 39 agonizing seconds behind Alberto Contador on the road, but the Spaniard's suspension for taking clenbuterol meant that Schleck inherited the yellow jersey. Winning a proxy war against Contador was a cruel way to bag his first grand… » 7/07/14 2:47pm 7/07/14 2:47pm

Tour De France Stage Winner Tries To Kiss Podium Girl, Fails

Vincenzo Nibali was flanked by two women as he celebrated on the podium after winning the second stage of the Tour de France today. One handed him flowers and in return, Nibali gave her those courtesy kisses on the cheek. He wasn't as smooth with the other girl. » 7/06/14 5:32pm 7/06/14 5:32pm

Mark Cavendish Eats It At The End Of First Stage Of Tour de France

Mark Cavendish was involved in (read: pretty much created) a crash in the final 400 meters of the opening stage of the Tour de France. While trying to create some room for himself to maneuver, he pushed against Simon Gerrans and the two bikes become entangled and they both went flying. Miraculously, neither man was… » 7/05/14 1:26pm 7/05/14 1:26pm

Cyclist Unknowingly Celebrates Win With One Lap Remaining
