There is going to be a television show in France tonight that supposedly shows that professional riders used mechanical doping in the Strade Bianche race in Tuscany and the Coppi e Bartali stage race, also in Italy. Fuck.
This is all getting so ridiculous. Supposedly there are new ways to propel the bicycle with a motor that is very light and pretty powerful. Somewhere between 60 and 250 watts. 60 extra watts would be crazy nice. 250w, unbelievable.
I’m going to just go over to Lawrence and do a MTB marathon now, and ride my bike, powered by my own two legs/body, around in 10 mile circles for 50 miles or so. Hopefully I can not think about how screwed up this sport has been my whole career. It is depressing.
