The Outspoken Cyclist – 6/3/2017

This week it’s FOUR conversations.

We begin on a somber note as we remember the Aexon Hagens Berman press officer, Sean Weide, who passed away unexpectedly at the age of 49 at his home in Omaha, Nebraska this week.

Sean was only 49 and one of those 24/7 people who worked behind the scenes as the conduit between the riders and their teams and the press.

Caley wrote a great tribute to him on the VeloNews.com site this week; and, the stories about Sean keep rolling in.

Then, we head over to France where Peter Cossins, who lives within a few miles of the 2017 Stage 13 TdF event will be ridden this year, has written a new book titled “The First Tour de France. In 1903 , 60 riders lined up to race 19 stages in what has become the most famous cycling event in the world. The book is a treasure trove of historical information.

Then, it’s off to the Big Apple to chat with event director for BikeNY, Jena McLaughlina bout the “Discover Hudson Valley” ride coming up June 25th.

Finally, Hans Rey joins me to talk about his Tutti Fruitti course in Livingno, Italy and invites us to come along and ride with him this summer!
