What You Missed

A Ride Up Alpe d’Huez

As I briefly mentioned in the previous post, we took a ride up Alpe d’Huez yesterday to see what all the fuss was about. This was the first time I’ve ever climbed this mythical mountain and it didn’t disappoint.


Rest Day, Up Mont Ventoux

Today myself and hundreds of other cyclists made the pilgrimage up Mont Ventoux. Since the teams and many race followers are staying very close to Ventoux, it was a convenient day out. A rest day for the pros meant that us fans could spend the whole day riding without rushing back to follow the race …


What You Missed This Morning…On The Col du Tourmalet

Instead of making my way to the Plateau de Beille today to watch the action live, I decided to take advantage of my location in Lourdes and climb the Col d’Aspin and Col du Tourmalet. After that we headed to a local pub and watched the last 2hrs of the stage. I could’t think of …


What You Missed This Morning…In Switzerland

It’s no wonder road riding is so popular in Europe. Small windy roads, hardly any traffic, hills galore…does it get any better? 2100m of climbing today in 70kms…and I’m not even close to burning off the kilo of cheese fondue I ate last night.


What You Missed This Morning…In Adelaide

Apologies for my absence over the past couple of days folks. I’ve been out of the office interviewing this mystery PRO from BMC. I’m looking forward to telling you all about it tomorrow…


What You Missed This Morning Photo Competition Winners

One of my favorite photos – submitted by Jon (see his flickr). Unfortunately it was disqualified from the competition because of suspect EXIF. Either way, it’s a cool shot The What You Missed This Morning competition is finally complete. Just as you’d expect from any cycling contest it was filled with scandal, corruption doping, false …


WYMTM Photo Competition – SCANDAL ERUPTS!

What would a contest in cycling be without controversy?  It appears that the WYMTM photo competition was not immune to the ultra-competitive behavior of cyclists and may have been thrown into disrepute last night as the final votes were taking place. Two photos in the competition have tested POZ for suspicious amounts of pocketcam. Following the UCI’s …


What You Missed This Morning Photo Comp. Grand Finals

Photo by Endless Pedal I’ve found in previous competitions that they often lose momentum after running for more than a couple weeks. This time however I’m going to be disappointed to see this competition pass. Every morning I woke up excited to see the dozens of photos waiting in my inbox. There were so many …


What You Missed This Morning Photo Competition – Final Week

The fourth and final week of the What You Missed This Morning Photo Competition is now complete. Since I felt that the World Championships was in dire need of exposure in the week leading up to it I decided to push the competition out. Not to worry…this only meant that there were some excellent submissions …


WYMTM Photo Competition – Week 3

Photo via chazhuttonsfsm.tumblr.com We’re into week 3 of the What You Missed This Morning (WYMTM) photo competition. I’m still getting truckloads of photos sent in and I’m loving it! I wish I could post every single one of them but I’m limiting it to the top 25 of each week.  Next week will be the …
