So, barely three days into 2015 and there’s a global cluster f**k of confusion erupting on every cycling addict’s favourite app, Strava. Sure it may be a colossal first world problem, but I really don’t get why the whole 2015 KOM was necessary in the first place. I know we’re all ‘cup whores’ and derive no end … More KOM WTF
We’ve posted about terrible cycling kits on Carbon Addiction before. But after stumbling across the truly dreadful design (immediately below) from a Columbian women’s team recently, it made us think perhaps it’s time to put things to a vote. Here you’ll find what we feel are five of the all-time worst cycling kit designs plus Mario Cipollini. Let us know which you … More POLL: Worst kit ever?
Recently I was lucky enough to interview Tim Kerrison, Head of Sports Performance for the all-conquering Team Sky. We talked about a lot of interesting things but given Sky has now won the TdF twice I was curious to find out what other races the British-based team covets most.

The Aussies are showing good form this year. So, who’s going to shine brightest at the 100th Tour? Porte and Rogers will be playing uber domestique for their respective team leaders (initially at least). While Cadel has to back up from his superb effort at the Giro. He also has a flying Teejay Van Garderen … More Rogers vs Porte vs Evans
Not sure if you’ve seen this yet? But the UCI is currently asking pretty much the entire planet to share its opinions on the state of world cycling. It takes a while to complete, but if you care about the sport, surely it’s worth it? Of course, whether the UCI actually does anything constructive from … More Change the world
It rained pretty hard in Sydney this morning. Whilst all my gear was set out in the lounge room, as always, ready for me to hit the road on my usual Tuesday training ride…I never made it out of bed. Sure I felt a little guilty, but I reckon I did the right thing. Of … More Wet vs Warm
#cyclingconundrums Your best friend lends you their brand new hand-crafted Italian bike to try out for a few laps around the block. It’s a beautiful thing.
