Podcast 2017 Episode 17 – Schroedinger’s GC

This week’s podcast is a little bit of a catchup as we cover off the impact that May has had on the peloton with races going on in the USA, the Basque country, Belgium and more. Riders and teams have had to choose where to apply their focus and resources and it’s made for a very interesting month. We take a particular look at how the Tour of California and the Emakumeen Bira played out and then how they contributed to the way that Gooik-Geraardsbergen-Gooik was raced. As always, there’s plenty to laugh about and more than a few diversions along the way! (50:37 MIN / 46.35 MB)

The Social Media Jersey – Round 1 – Giro Toscana nominations

Thanks to everyone for sending in their nominations for riders who’ve blogged, tweeted and used social media at and about Giro Toscana – these are the first riders who are in the running for the real cash prizes in the  Unofficial Unsanctioned Social Media Jersey competition. This is the post in which we’ll be aggregating the nominations for this race, starting with those that have been submitted thus far. Each nomination includes the name of the rider and a link to the piece of social media for which they were nominated (e.g. blog, tweet, video, etc.). In the case of riders with multiple nominations we’ll include additional links under the one rider name (in order to keep things simple). And of course, there’s still time to nominate in the comments.

We’ll also be collecting nominations from riders at the Tour de l’Ardèche and the Brainwash Ladies Tour – if you’d like to nominate, the details are here.  Nominations close on 13th September – and then we’ll open up the voting, so you can help choose the winners!

EDIT!  You can vote for the winners in the Megapoll, here!

Before we dive right in, just a quick update on the fundraising. Thank you again for every contribution and sharing of this idea. We’ve now raised just over $1600 and still have a couple of weeks to go. So please don’t forget to keep up the great work in getting some buzz going about this and to encourage more people to help us create the coolest new award in pro cycling. 🙂

Alright, let’s get into the nominations. Remember to actually click through to make sure you see any photos or other details, this post is just a summary! Here we go (oh and these are in no particular order – or maybe they’re in alphabetical order by rider surname, it’s hard to say for sure):
