7 Nov 2013: Great Carnegie Crit Robbery, Chicken's bad eggs, A lid on helmets, Cav still the King? by Cycling Central published on 2013/11/07 05:44:32 +0000 The Great Carnegie Crit Robbery. In their own backyard in Manchester, the Brits trumped in the medal tally at the Track World Cup. Michael ‘Chicken’ Rasmussen lays a half-dozen more bad eggs. Lance Armstrong confesses… to be clean in his comeback, and is willing to bet everything he’s already lost on it. The Helmet Debate rages on. Mark Cavendish, a self-proclaimed genius – in Sodoku. Somehow, the geniuses that comprise the Cycling Central podcast trio of Al Hinds, Phil Gomes and Anthony Tan have managed to canvass, dissect, and extrapolate each and every one of these mind-bending topics into a show lasting no more than forty-five minutes. Forty-one minutes and fourteen seconds, to be precise. (What is the collective noun for a bunch of geniuses, anyway?) Whatever. And if that’s not enough, we talk tough to ‘The Eliminator’, a.k.a. Paul van der Ploeg, to gauge his thoughts on the Victorian cycling mecca of Bright hosting the 2014 and 2015 national MTB championships. Yibbida, yibbida, that's all folks - till next week, of course!
