    9 Tragic Tour de France Deaths

    Cycling is not a particularly popular pro sport here in North America. Outside the Tour de France, the sport isn’t followed very closely by the media or fans, and even then the only names we know are the guys who win or get caught doping. Hell, not even Lance Armstrong and his 7 consecutive Tour […]

    15 Biggest Doping Scandals In Cycling History

    With this being the heart of the cycling season—we’re in between the Giro d’Italia and the Tour France—and with everyone’s favorite one-testicled bracelet salesman (Lance Armstrong) making headlines in sports pages again, I thought this would be the perfect time to do a list of cycling’s biggest doping scandals. But here’s the thing. It turns […]

    <a href="http://www.totalprosports.com/wp-content/ Avis Sondages – Sondages Remuneres uploads/2012/04/cycling-crash.jpg”>The Rock Lititz Tour doesn’t receive the same level of exposure as the Tour de France, the Giro d’Italia or some of cycling’s other elite races, but it could see a giant influx in attention over the next couple of days following this epic crash during the event’s […]

    9 Sexiest Female Pro Cyclists

    I’m not really sure what gave me the idea to do a list of the hottest female pro cyclists out there. Maybe it’s just because hottest female anything always goes over well. Maybe it was something I saw on TV. Or maybe I saw a hot girl riding a bike on my way to work […]

    Cyclist Going 60 MPH Behind A Truck (Video)

    Hey, everybody loves going fast on their bikes. But damn, there are limits, you know? Well, most of us have limits. The cyclist in this video? Not so much. What you’re looking at here is a very extreme case of drafting. Drafting is when one vehicle or moving object lines up directly behind another vehicle […]

    Picture Of The Day: Is That A Brain In George Hincapie’s Leg?

    It appears as though 15 years of riding in the Tour de France has caused the leg of American rider George Hincapie to develop a mind/brain of its own. All kidding aside, the reason Hincapie’s veins are popping out of his legs as if they are trying to escape the pain of enduring another long, […]

    Cow Crossing Causes Cycling Pile Up (Video)

    Holding a cycling race on a street that passes through the grassy fields where cows graze may not seem like such a bad idea, but it turned out to be a catastrophic mess during the Critérium du Dauphiné cycling race in France this weekend. The race is said to be a tune-up for cyclists prior […]

    Picture Of The Day: Sweet Bike Rack

    It may not be capable of hauling around a few bikes on the back of your truck, but regardless of that fact, this has to be one of the most impressive bike racks I have ever seen.  And unless they are real, this gorgeous blond may be the owner of the most expensive bike rack […]

    Picture Of The Day: I Wonder Who Won This Race?

    I’m not even sure where I should start here.  This kid is racing against a girl and a couple of other kids on their crappy bikes, and for some reason his parents thought it would be cool to get him an aerodynamic helmet, top notch bike, and spandex cyclist uniform, just to ensure that he […]

    Herd Of Sheep Interrupt 17th Stange Of Tour de France (Video)

    Why did the sheep cross the road?  To interrupt the Tour de France! The unforgiving ascent up the mountains is difficult enough, but these sheep decided to throw another obstacle in the riders path during their climb up the Col du Soulor.  Fortunately, the riders were able to steer clear of this wandering herd during […]

    Who Said There Is No Fighting In The Tour de France (Video)

    With about 20 km left in today’s 6th stage of the Tour de France, Rui Costa delivered an elbow to the chest of Carlos Barredo, which almost sent him flying off his bike.  So when Barredo crossed the finish line, he had revenge on his mind and a front tire in his hands. The Spanish […]
