He's not sure it'll even be his last season.

Do any of the my dutch friends know when THE GREAT Bauke Mollema will be riding next? They should put him in the tour team as Gesink and Menchov have no chance of making it to the finish.

Tour of Switzerland. That's what his official website said, or what I could gather with my very basic Dutch.

They've recently decided to leave both of them at home and instead take Bauke, the Falcon of the Flatlands.

Default MY TAKE ON RECENT CYCLING COMEDIES (news?) !!

APRIL FOOLS DAY was 2mths ago! BP are polluting the Gulf of Mexico and the Media are short of ideas so even here in Austria this nonsense is surfacing!
Pascal the mechanic sticks his head out of the sunroof of the team car and we have sensationalism! Boonen gets his derriere kicked and there is "Conspiracy"! Lance has even been tied to this in some articles as some "jokers" reckon he lent the bike out!" Correct me but doesn't Radio Shack ride Trek and didn't "Specialized" stop supplying a team because they want Kids to respect thier body and avoid "Substance abuse"?
Athletes train for events and F C trained for this with Stewie & co pulling him to the point where he could use all his energy to get the desired result, Victory. Basso didn't win the Giro alone Silvo Smyzd pulled him , Nibali & Evans et al up the climbs to the point that Liquigas were able to determine the result.
Yesterday after 140k i jumped on the back of a family group of 3 and they towed me 30k at over 40+kph, it was sad they were not going the rest of the way as i went thru 2 speed signs at 37 & 38 after they heded west to Innsbruck and i went south to Zillertal.
Robbie McEwen reported 68kph on twitter training recently and Cippo was booked on the SuperStrada at 90+ behind a M/bike!

SILLY SEASON IS OVER! Back to the real world PLEASE?

BY THE WAY my take on the CHEATING RACERS

FACT is these UN CONSCIENABLE CHEATS deserve to be locked and tagged in their homes for the full period of their suspension and NOT allowed to work in any "CYCLING related activity" whether with teams or travel or speaking engagements.

IN ADDITION on return from Suspension they must only race in a league 2 steps below their departure point, thus we will not see the PROTOUR polluted by the poison that they were infected with! Professionals faced with this situation will think about "Short cuts" to success when they forsee the consequences!

Pat Mc Quaid may be Irish and be portrayed as a lightweight but i am sure he is "SAVVY enough "to make the CHEATS sweat at night when he uses the power that is at his disposal more effectively!

DO THE CRIME , SERVE THE TIME ! Tired of hearing how some of these adults were misled !

PARIS — Cervelo Test team have ended speculation about Carlos Sastre's inclusion in this year's Tour de France by telling their former champion to get ready for the July 3-25 event.

Menchov should have focused on the Giro with it's extremely weak field.

Bauke will dominate the Tour de Suisse next week.

When Contador heard this news, he decided to chuck in his TdF towel and make the Dauphine a season make or break must-win instead. Bookies are considering paying out on a Falcon TdF victory the moment he shows up on the Rotterdam start line. Tour Directors were initially insisting they wouldn't hand him the trophy until Bauke reached Paris, but since this Tour will be yet again totally overshadowed by the Hey It's Cycling, let's Talk about Lance Baby sideshow, they posted the yellow jersey and yanked all stages after all. Not that anyone will notice that there is no actual racing this July, as Eurosport is showing back to back episodes of Planet Armstrong between Sidi commercials, with the premier of the show's replacement for 2011 on the final race day: Planet Bauke.
