News Roundup: October 16th

Apologies for having a limited amount of time today, but I did want to touch on a few stories in the world of cycling:

This weekend brings us the Giro DiLombardia. You can catch it on Versus (formerly OLN) at 5:00 PM EST. Unfortunately, for him, Danilo Di Luca (Giro d'Italia winner) will not be there. He was banned from cycling for three months for ties to Italian doctor, Dr Carlo Santuccione. Dr Santuccione is believed to be the leader of a doping ring involving cyclists.

In somewhat related news, I was found not guilty of doping charges. The accusation arose due to a mentioned addiction to Muesli. I was connected to someone who goes by the name of "Sprocketboy", who provided a bad as heck Muesli recipe. Apparently the USADA had no idea that Muesli is actually composed of Oats, Yogurt, Apples and various other wholesome ingredients. Needless to say, the charges were immediately dropped.

Fat Cyclist Elden Nelson has put out his latest BikeRadar article. Click to read: How To Get Rid Of Unwanted Fitness.

Spin Bike Shop in Willoughby, Ohio (and Lakewood) will be hosting their "Cross My Heart And Hope To Die Willoughby Cyclocross Spectacular" (heh heh, I get it: "cross" my heart) on Saturday November 10th, at Todd Field in Downtown Willoughby, Ohio. More information on the event, and how to register can be found at the Team Spin website. Please tell them you heard about it at the Cycling Phun Blog.

And as always, please check out the cool blogs to the right, that are distracting me from earning a living. Yes, they're just that good.
