#nccn will be back in swing tomorrow (been out of town) but looking at the same page is driving me crazy. I caught up with Vanderkitten Jono on how his peeps are doing at the big show, ie. the Nature Valley Grand Prix. Granted I could barely understand him between the thunder, wind, and crazy accent but should be able to elicit some more info from him tomorrow, as we talk up the weekend events and how NorCal riders are faring at the #nvgp. Until then here are some cool pieces you should be reading…
Strava Reliability - NorCal Overlord of Braniacs Dan Conelly put together some cool data on how well strava segements their (more accurately your) GPS data. A great read for the data specialists out there.
Nature Valley Grand Prix Coverage – Podium Insight is in full NVGP coverage mode. The articles are fine, the photos are amazing, and if there was a way to charge for twitter coverage i think Podium would have their business model locked down. That twitter feed is gold for cycling coverage. Check it on twitter at @podiuminsight
Counter Attacking Big Pink- I worry that Rand is going to quit cycling to pursue his science career, which is why his post quality has been heading down hill… but he’s got a good post in there about the 45+ Masters RR Championship. Don’t forget to heckle him while he is volunteering as a course marshal at Pesky for his Alto Velo club. I might go down just for that…it cold be better than cross.
The Doper Next Door – It’s out! Unlike most people I don’t think Tilin is a dbag for running this crazy experiment. I DO think he’s lame for not owning it, only going halfway, and doing it in our district. I’ll write a real review when I finish the book.
Team Diadora Pasta Zara – The team’s facebook fanpage is obviously run by a master of italian social networking. The reason for checking this out feels somewhat cruel, but the updates tend to be both informative, and humorous due to the translations. Check out Amber Pierce and Shelley Olds comings and goings here if you are a fan.
