It's A Dangerous Business

In terrible news from Europe, two-time track world champ and Caisse d'Espargne rider Isaac Galvez died from injuries suffered at the Gent Six-Day event in Belgium. Paramedics revived Galvez on the track, but the rider died on the way to the hospital.

In Disco news, Jurgen Van Goolen crashed recently on a training ride, breaking his collarbone and a finger on his right hand. The team has indicated that the injuries are not serious and JVG will be ready for next season.

Basso de GQ

Check out Ivan Basso's website here. I am not sure what I find more amuzing; the GQ look or the fact that he has already redegined the site to incorporate the Disco move. I guess the GQ thing could hang on dude's italian heritage, but seriously.

I must say that I am stoked to see such a strong rider signed to Disco. I wonder how Tommy and Levi will do in their new "super-domestique" rolls.

Enough said.

Ulle Good, No?

Check out the only dude to offer Ullrich a ride next year. Looks like a cyclist to me. Maybe Landis and Hamilton can score a ride with Party Dude Tinkoff as well!

Basso to Discovery

From CyclingNews:

Lance Armstrong has confirmed the signing of Ivan Basso to Discovery Channel. "It's done," quipped the seven-time Tour de France winner in an interview with La Gazzetta dello Sport. This afternoon, from Austin, Texas, the official announcement is expected that the 2006 Giro d'Italia winner will ride for the same team that helped carry the American to his Tour successes.

According to the Italian sports newspaper, Discovery Channel is set to welcome the Giro champion in Austin on December 3, when he will be fitted for team clothing and gear during the team’s first, unofficial training camp. The Tour is the number one objective of the American team and it is unknown if Basso will want to continue with the same program of riding both the Italian and French grand tours.

You ain't shit

Check out this video of a dude in Norway thrown down some sick trials. I can't get enough of this. Of note is that in Norway, you don't need a chain to ride. Furthermore, the language is easily translated as you can see on this video.
