Giro d’italia So far

Posted on: May 16, 2011 I Written By

The Giro d’Italia is one of my favorite races to watch because it is the hardest of the Grand Tours. There are so many mountains that they have to over come and it is always exciting.

As of yesterday, Alberto Contador took the pink jersey and I feel that the Giro is pretty much over. Alberto is looking stronger than he ever has in the past and no one could hang on up to the top of Mt. Etna.

Its tough to make the call that he will win it for sure though because there are a lot of mountain to come.

Also, we have a few more days for the sprinters and I’m hoping Cavendish can get something going, hopefully getting atleast one stage.

We’ll have to wait and see how it plays out.

Gent–Wevelgem- Gent-Wevelgem came down to a field sprint which was won by “Tornado” Tom Boonen of Quickstep.

Tour of Flanders- The Ronde van Vlaandere was won after a long day by Nick Nuyens who was just able to outsprint Sylvain Chavanel of Quickstep and Fabian Cancellara.

Scheldeprijs- This semi-classic was won in a field sprint by the fastest man on two wheels, Mark Cavendish of HTC Highroad.

Paris- Roubaix- The big one. The Queen of the Classics was won after a long breakaway by Johan Vansummeren of Garmin- Cervelo.

This season was very excited throughout the classics season and next year should be even better.

Milan-San Remo

Posted on: March 19, 2011 I Written By

Wow, what a fantastic race! The race came down to a very select field sprint which was taken by Matthew Goss. Congrats the HTC squad.

With 4 km to go, the front group pulled back the only man up the road and an intense battle ensued. Attack after attack came but, no one could make them stick until finally, they were in the last kilometer and they knew it would be a sprint. Goss was just a bit stronger than everyone else.

Final Results

1 Matthew Harley Goss- HTC-Highroad 6:51:10
2 Fabian Cancellara- Leopard Trek
3 Philippe Gilbert-  Omega Pharma-Lotto
4 Alessandro Ballan-  BMC Racing Team
5 Filippo Pozzato- Katusha Team
6 Michele Scarponi- Lampre – ISD
7 Yoann Offredo- FDJ
8 Vincenzo Nibali- Liquigas-Cannondale 0:00:03

Valentines Day

Posted on: February 14, 2011 I Written By

Happy Valentines Day everyone!

Hope everyone’s cycling season is starting off well. Mine has.

Our team had a great first 2 week. First, we went to the Poor College Kids road race in Santa Barbara and we were able to finish in the lead group but, there was no room to sprint so I settled for 26th.

The next weekend was the Boulevard/ Red Trolley weekend. I got into a break for the first 30 minutes of Boulevard and our team leader, Nathan Chaszeyka took top honors, winning the Red Trolley Criterium.

Make sure you do something for your special someone today and have a good day.

Cold Weather

Posted on: January 19, 2011 I Written By

We’re in the middle of the Winter season and this is when training begins to get hard. This is also the time when you should switch it up from base miles to more focused workout to fine tune your form for the coming season.

It’s easier to do all this in Vegas because the 30 degree weather doesn’t last long but, this can be hard elsewhere.

Keep up the good work and stay focued and it will all pay off

The Holidays

Posted on: December 20, 2010 I Written By

These are the times we get to spend with our family. The time we get to be thankful. The time we get to…. overeat???

This is a common issue that many of us face because the foods we make are SO GOOD!

However, this is prime time to get your winter training done for the 2011 racing season so, keep the training up to allow for the extra calorie intake.

Get out there and get some long base miles in if you can. if not, hop on the trainer and get the work done

Happy training and Happy Holidays

“He hasn’t hit on me! And I’m taking it as an insult,” Karina joked with Access Hollywood Live’s Kit Hoover on Thursday. “Like, what am I? A grenade?”

Culinary 101 – Cooking with Godfrey

Posted on: September 22, 2010 I Written By

Test to see if this appears.

UPDATE: They’re adding a 30 day free trial offer for their Culinary 101. Check out the content he’s created for free. That’s a good deal.

This summer I took on a little side project to help a guy who was really passionate about doing an online cooking show which he’s calling Grubbin with Godfrey. My role was to just help code and make the website functional. A graphic designer made it look pretty and I left all the video and promotion of the website to someone else.

All in all, I think Grubbin with Godfrey is turning into a great website. Plus, I’m sure his videos will continue to improve more and more over time as he gets more comfortable in front of the camera and learns the art of cooking while talking. However, the quality of the videos he’s produced is really great. Some of the best I’ve seen on YouTube.

Here’s a short video he did to promote the cooking show that’s pretty funny:

The other cool part about the cooking show is that Grubbin with Godfrey has a section of the site called Culinary 101. This is a set of premium videos that go into depth on cooking dishes. Tracy really wants people to cook along with him.

If you like cooking, take a look and let me know what you think of the site.
