Stupid technology. Due to the show recorded on 1/2 sounding like complete crap, all we have of Mark is the rant. Which although a static element here and there, kind of like an old radio show, still epic.

Oh, and Pat has an announcement.

This is truly a Specialized podcast episode. It will make you want to jump up and say "Allez!" all over the tarmac. 

Get it? 

Frank the Great from Velominati, along with Dan Richter of Cafe Roubaix are on the show to talk about the fine art of corporate bullying, along with the Reconcilliation Tour de Lance, and a good old round of Rapid Fire Response.

Pat is all alone, sad as it may seem.

To LBS or not, that is the question. When buying online is a good idea. 

And a little baseball rant thrown in for good measure.

Oh, and some long ass miles ahead for me (Pat).

Pat and Mark hit the road to the River City Brewing Company to talk cycling and beer (what else?) with Gage Stromberg, the owner of River City, and riders from the River City Cycling Team. 

One of them has it in for Mark. Might come to blows...

I've been looking forward to this one. A great interview with the one and only Steve Bauer, the man who has done more for Canada than Alan Thicke, Michael J. Fox, and even Wayne Gretzky (in my mind, at least).

Wait... there's an elephant in the room?!? 

Pat and Mark talk about "it" and get it over with. If you don't know what "it" is, you either aren't a cyclist, or you live under a huge friggin' rock.

Sorry Lance. We had to.
