    BIRDS (and how to look at them)

    You can see some google photos for examples. Grays are an interesting bird. They hang out at all the high peaks in the Northeast and nip food from hikers. They stash food in holes of trees for the winter season. One of my favorite things to watch is someone who has never seen the Gray Jays fed from hand. My daughter calls it her "Disney Princess" moment.

    Has anyone ever fed wild birds? We have Gray Jays in the mountains where I live. We bring bird feed and feed them by hand on the mountain peaks. I have some awesome photos of them landing on my hands.

    I love the added drama of Landa knowing he is probably the strongest rider right now. Must be so tempting to want to add just a little more time into the GC race.

    I'm hoping some of the flatter courses get interesting due to cross winds or breakaways. Stage 11 last year was awesome, love to see another replay of something like that.

    Nice to see Rolland get a breakaway stage win. Good timing, good strategy and nice strong push from him. No one could get their act together and he just slipped away. I'm a day behind so looking forward to watching Stage 18 tonight when I get home. Finally have race season coming up on the NBC Gold package - Dauphine, Tour De Suisse and then TDF!

    Tour of California has been pretty entertaining this week. If you have a chance, it is worth viewing. Yesterdays stage was pretty exciting at the end.

    Not having an American GC contender is not allowed. Until someone else comes along TVG is the great American hope!

    Agreed, I've been following cycling for the last few years and I can't recall him ever being someone who took risks or attacked on climbs. Even in the years when he was among the Top 10 in GC in the TDF he was not much of a factor. It might be good for his career to step away from the pressure of GC contender. Free him up to go after some stage wins on a Grand Tour. It could revitalize his career a little. He must be feeling a loss of confidence.

    Thankfully it gets interesting this year. I watched the first two stages of the Tour of California last night. Tom Skunjins had an absolutely horrific crash on an ascent of stage 2. It was almost compounded by his staggering attempt to get back on the bike as riders were ascending past him. One of the worst crashes I have seen. Guy did manage to get on the bike for a little while but Cannondale pulled him off the course.

    He will definitely lose some time tomorrow but it is pretty clear that he will win on the mountains. Weird things happen after rest days. It would be great to see Q falter on the time trails and let Dumoulin and Pinot overtake him.

    That was crazy. At that point the race had started so I am not sure what they could have done to change it. I thought the Giro was lucky the official standing in the road a couple of stages ago did not get himself or other riders killed. They dodged a disaster that time but no such luck on this stage. Good battle up the mountain with the remaining contenders. Got excited for Pinot when he did his initial attack and initially I thought Nibali might be stronger because he was staying in saddle. Quintana is just too good on the hills right now.

    Found replays online of the last 20km's for all the stages so I am now up to date on the Giro Felt bad for Conti on the hairpin turn at the end of stage 8. Tough way to end the day!!!

    Watched the replay of Stage 3 on youtube. I love when cross winds factor in on flat sections and the peloton gets broken. Not as good as last years Sagan/Froome break but Jungels pushed it nicely. Kind of pissed off at the cycling access situation here in the US. Apparently the only way to see the Giro is to obtain a Fubo.Tv subscription over Roku. NBC had the streaming rights for all the other events except the Giro. Fubo is $34 USD per month! I'm stuck trolling YouTube for replays and most of the posts are highlights or shitty quality. I will be watching the Tour of California live next week.

    Podcasts and Organizing them

    I just wrapped up the Missing Richard Simmons podcast. I thought it was really well done. I'm a little bias because I love Richard but the story is fascinating even if you have no knowledge or interest about him. Some other podcasts in my rotation right now: Last Podcast on the Left - Comedy podcast about paranormal, serial killers, true crime... The Unresolved Podcast - unresolved true crime and paranormal stories, really well researched Guys We F***d - comedy podcast hosted by two NYC comedians. They have an assortment of guests and talk about being female in the comedy industry, living the single life and dating in NYC The DIS Unplugged - I got into this while planning a trip for my kids and became addicted. It is mostly gay guys discussing Disney World theme park topics. Oddly entertaining and i love how passionate they are. The Rialto Report - Interview podcast focusing on the early days of the adult film industry in New York City. Many of these people have lived very interesting (and often tragic) lives. The POX and PUSS Podcast - Appalachian Trail Thru-hiker podcast

    Tour down under starts tomorrow. Trying to do my homework to figure out the team name changes and rider switches. I'll be watching the race on my NBC Sports cycling subscription. @BigFatCoward - maybe change the title of the thread to reflect 2017 On another topic - it is winter here in the Northeast United States. Too cold and snowy to ride outside. I've invested in a smart (or turbo) trainer with a full basement set up (40 Inches screen). I've started riding on Zwift and I'm pretty sure I'm addicted. Rode 90km's over the last two day. Even climbed the radio tower on Watopia last night. If anyone is on Zwift I'd love to get a ride in. Floating around 2.5 w/kg in case anyone is interested in a group ride
