Twisted Spoke

My twisted take on the world of pro bike racing.

Twisted Spoke rubbing elbows with Velonews. Cycling publication of the year.

The groovy good news.

Okay, I will admit to being childishly and almost embarrassingly proud of this recognition (full story here.) Way better than when I got the 3rd place ribbon in the high jump in 5th grade. I decided to start this cycling blog ten months ago and write about something I care about. Close to 300 posts later, I almost feel like a working cycling journalist. That’s cool.

Building an audience takes time but it’s happening and I’m genuinely exciting about the new things to come. Covering the Tour of California live and in person. And maybe, just maybe, the big daddy of them all, the 2010 Tour de France. There’s a podcast in the works and video for the Giro.

So much thanks to James Raia of the SFExaminer and thanks to everybody who hunted around the web, found me and kept reading. I always look forward to comments. It’s good to know you’re out there somewhere.

Thanks, Matt
