Goggles & Dust collects over 100 stunning photographs from competitive cycling’s heyday. Spanning the 1920s and ’30s, the book celebrates the grit and determination of the bicycle racing pioneers who established the records, traditions, and distinct flavors of Europe’s most hallowed races.
This is pretty cool—rest day ride with Chris Froome while the dude is ni the midst of a battle for the overall win a Grand Tour. From a technical standpoint, there’s surprisingly good audio in what is largely an on-bike chat with Dan Lloyd.
No major revelations, but Froome has some cool thoughts on the Vuelta and on spending as much time on the TT bike as possible. Kinda reminds me of the old American College Football adage about fumble-prone players having to carry a football around all day.
Davis + Connie is a short film, produced by Rapha and Ben Ingham, about two of America’s finest and most inspiring road racers, Davis Phinney and Connie Carpenter-Phinney. For anyone who saw them race, Davis and Connie came to represent the best in American road racing, combining bold racing with uncompromising attitudes on and off the bike. Their careers saw them move from domination of domestic races to international and Olympic success.
