“Did You Donate?” Escape The Peloton for January 3rd, 2012
This night’s broadcast came with New Year’s Resolutions and heartfelt sentiments. Foremost, let us help get Sean out from behind the DJ mic and on the crit circuit for at least 40 minutes this race season. As for happenings in the bike world outside Arizona…
Taylor Phinney loves his “Pops”. He loves his Pops’ foundation a lot, too!! Taylor kicked off 2012 with a LARGE commitment to the Davis Phinney Foundation, to the tune of $25,000 US dollars. Can you help match that number? Prove it!! Simply text “VICTORY” to 80888 and walk the talk with a $10 text-donation. Taylor is showing the true heart of a champion and giving back. Believe it or not, giving is addicting. You can give higher amounts by visiting the Davis Phinney Foundation’s page for this program at dpf.kintera.org/taylorphinney .
Taylor went on to outline some of his goals for the 2012 season, from the Spring Classics, a Grand Tour completion to the Olympic Time Trial, but showed a lot of poise and reason with respect to how his goals fit into the team plans at the BMC Pro Racing Team. Find out where Taylor’s heart lies, and get details on his next wedding singer appearance…
After some mushy sentiments from the in-studio peloton, Brook Watts took us straight to the frozen tundra of Madison, Wisconsin for a report on the upcoming US National Championships of Cyclocross. Made for Media drama in the US Domestic Cx realm, you decide. And what?!?! The Belgians have borrowed something from American style ‘cross?? Elvis?? Listen up!! Brook gave the full details from Christmas Cross including the GVA, Superprestige and Fidea Series. And the Quote of the Night had to be “Marianne Vos freakin’ dominates,” according to Brook, the full package. Not to leave the heckling only for the ‘cross course, MN_Muscle threw in a good shot at Brook. Who is that guy anyways??
Ron Callahan dropped in for the weekly headlines from his basement to update the start of pro road racing “Down Unda”. Looks like the Billy’s Bail Bonds team dominated the Jayco Bay Crits. Cue the entry of @BikeBoy_1 and @AguaGirl72 coming soon with Santos Tour Down Under full reports. “World” news definitely jumped all over from Oz, to Great Britian, to South America, to Spain, and all over. Catch all the details at bikeworldnews.com.
For the aging swag providers, Marty could use some new “cheaters” for future phone dialing in 2012. We appreciate your support. Like every week, catch the full audio right HERE.
Start 2012 off right, keep on riding!!
