As this week, we're exploring the science and technology behind the Tour de France. Endurance events like this one rely on strong, sturdy, yet fast equipment to win points, time and stages. So the structure and design of these road bikes is constantly developing.
Here are some facts to know for anyone interested in this au naturel social justice event. At first glance, it can be quite easy to label this event as an exhibitionist experiment or a wacky, intimidating affair. This, however, is really not the case.
Vanity Fair was forced to release their October Lance Armstrong story much earlier than they wanted to, thanks to the leaked stories about the 7-time Tour de France winner's pending return popping up online. The story is a long, personalized feature written by Douglas Brinkley, a native Texan, who seems dumbfounded by the news of Armstrong's intentions. Brinkley was apparently expecting Armstrong to share his political aspirations or some more dire circumstances about his battle with cancer.
Over the weekend, a driver struck and killed a cyclist in the bike lane on Grand Street in Williamsburg, then fled the scene of what police believe was an intentional crash. An out-of-control SUV slammed into a cyclist and two cars near the Barclays Center in Brooklyn this morning, killing the cyclist and injuring three others. The third stage of the Tour de France was suspended Monday after a tremendous crash took down 20 riders, including race leader Fabian Cancellera.
I guess it's unfortunate that news of Lance Armstrong ending his battle against a set of doping charges came without shock. That he'd give up fighting anything is somewhat surprising, and, as a fan, there was some initial disappointment. Pro cycling is well-known to be infested with doping, and many fans and critics of Armstrong have long believed him to be among the peloton of cheaters. But, importantly, Lance hasn't admitted to any wrongdoing with this gesture—far from it.
Lance Armstrong has done it, Robbie McEwen has done it, Michele Bartoli has done it, now some of Ireland's top cyclists have bared all, this time in the name of charity. The brainchild of racing cyclist Gerard Cromwell, publisher of Irish Cycling News magazine, the calendar has attracted the interest of the local business community in Drogheda and surrounding areas and hopes to raise as much money as possible for the unit. Since then I've always wanted to do something to raise money to help the unit keep up the excellent standard of care in treating those babies and hopefully the money we raise can help make a difference in a little child's life.
As we reported on our live blog yesterday eveningthe man was spotted riding in the buff near Fiddlers Ferry Boat Yard and Penketh Mount on Sunday afternoon. Police confirmed that they were investigating, but British Naturism has stressed that unless he intended to alarm or distress others, he was not committing a crime under the Sexual Offences Act The important point here is that there must be intent — someone may well be caused alarm or distress at the sight of a naked body in public, but if the nude person did not have the intent to cause it, there is no offence. Naturism — taking your clothes off specifically because you want to sunbathe or feel the air on your skin — was named as an exclusion from the Sexual Offences Act.
