UCI ProTour implodes, Film at 11

On this Tour de France rest day, David, Carlton and Tim Jackson got together for a new episode of The Spokesmen podcast. Tim had hardware removed from his hand, Carlton wants to wait before passing judgement on Beltran and talks about his new “Bike To Work” book. They admire the performance of the two American teams in this year’s tour and make fun of Team Columbia’s (nee High Road) team kit.

There’s more at The Spokesmen Podcast.

Oh yeah, I forgot to mention: 17 UCI ProTour teams announced they would not renew their ProTour licenses for 2009.

    …the riders & their teams need to make both the uci & the aso realize that a spirit of co-operation & solidarity is what will make cycling strongest, on the wold stage…

    …this is an unfortunate battle that is far from over…
