“My fav pancakes at home…” photo credit @petosagan. At home following the disastrous motorcycle “attack” accident at Vuelta Espana. Due to first and second degree burns to the leg, hip and hands, Tinkoff-Saxo’s Peter Sagan ended his participation in the race immediately. At the time, Sagan had the green jersey and had already won a stage with the objective to win more stages. The 2015 race season has seen multiple motorcycle support vehicle accidents. The rule should be any motor vehicle car truck or moto that collides with a racer on their bicycle, should be banned permanently – without pay – from anything to do with UCI professional racing.

Yoga on Bike

Yoga moves for the busy person who rides a bike 10,000 miles annually. Question: Where are the good yoga spots? Answer: You need to do yoga in a studio like you need to drink coffee in a coffee shop. The best part about the yoga moves are their adaptability to environments such as the extra 10 minute wait on the train platform or those early 10 minutes prior┬áto a meeting. Yoga mat and roller not required! In addition to hydration and rest, stretching and staying nimble is essential in recovery in the path to your goals. Position’s and stretching will differ for different body types, your mileage will vary. Use the photos as a jumping point for your own research. Shout out to my yoga consultant’s and RIDE EVERY DAY people’s, Nicholas E. and Sarah K. Good luck with the intro to yoga on bike moves and check in with your results tips and feedback @racingmix


Before the Fast and the Furious…

Cool Story, Bro: Fresh outta high school, I played collegiate tennis at SRJC, studied computer science, chased girls in the original social media chat rooms & instant messages of AOL, a decade before Google went public. I rarely attended web design classes because I was in the lab already designing web sites and being paid. I began acquiring domains in 1999 and blogged my lifestyle in a new sub-culture called Import Racing. I traveled to Japan and Los Angeles to gain a further edge on the sub-culture. Generally, people had no idea what the Internet was, even Spam didn’t know what the Internet was. Pyra Labs sent me an official Blogger sweater when Google bought it in 2003. Pyra Labs was Google’s 3rd acquisition and has since purchased 173+ companies. My website traffic averaged 50,000 views a month (FYI: 4.0% of world population was online in 1999, versus 40.0% in 2014). In command of an Internet presence with a global audience, I was paid to blog, a feat illusive to 99.9% of bloggers to this day. Hollywood reacted with the film, The Fast and the Furious (2001 Cohen). We were just teenagers and were resistant to the idea of business, though my friends were hired as extras in the film. That same year, The Guardian UK published an article that my brother and me, the “Tai Bros,” were the inspiration for the film’s story. Six sequels later, Furious 7 (2015 Wan), joined Universal’s biggest franchise of all time with over $2.3B in earnings. Reference:
