Deux North – Hunt 4

‘Riding up the coast of California from Santa Cruz, Deux North‘s 8 riders test a new bike built for every kind of road. After 2 days and 200 miles, the group meets the story’s narrator, El Chapulin (The Grasshopper) to listen to his story, tell their own, and compete in an event that he created over 15 years ago. On the final day. the 100-mile Grasshopper Adventure Series race serves as the finish line for Deux North’s Hunt 4. #SeekandDiverge’

Beautiful roads and landscapes… one day I will ride the coast myself, either support road bike style or trailer full of camp gear and a surfboard, all good either way.

How The Race Was Won – Tour de France 2014 – Stage 5

I am openly a Classics fan over the Grand Tours any day – the riders who shine in the early spring and the terrain that they cover makes for much better spectating in my opinion, and it’s all on the line in the one day races. That said, yesterday’s stage 5 at Le Tour was basically the Roubaix we’ve been waiting for the past decade – wet, fast and merciless. Nothing makes for entertainment quite like slick cobbles in the North of France, and yesterday was a testament to the fortitude of the hardmen of professional cycling – find the entire stage and see for yourself, or watch the ever-infomative Cosmo Catalano‘s recap above. Oh, and take that Sky – never should have played Wiggens out as you did.
