I know you’ll all watching the Sochi Olympics waiting for something like this to happen:
There’s nothing like watching an opening ceremony of an Olympic event and see a host countries history depicted through Cirque du Soleil looking performers in unitards.
Perhaps we will feel the unity and the world coming together with Russian Police hoping to “Get Lucky.
I dunno, seems a little flamboyant to me…especially with Russia so particular about sexual preference.
We did get introduced to this year’s Olympic mascots:
(left to right) Fabulous Bunny, Stray(f) the Dog and Pussy Cat Tiger Riot.
In case you’ve missed the action here is a 2 hour special of pre-event coverage by Russian TV.
I know, poor Russia is getting picked on, but I really like the take on Gawker’s sports site Deadspin:
Ok, the bike videos:
Title: State Bicycle Shockwave Video
Seen on: Urban Velo.
Description: Fixed gear freestyle isn’t as visible as it was just a few years back, but there are still plenty of riders out there getting rad. State Bicycle has long had one of the more affordable FGFS complete bikes out there, with this being the latest incarnation, the $579 Shockwave. We reviewed the similar Massacre from State back in May 2012.
Title:CX Hairs: #SVENNESS 2.17
Seen on: Prolly
Description: This is it, the final race of the year for #SVENNESS. This one takes place in Hoogerheide, Netherlands for the 2014 UCI Cyclocross World Championship. Surely by now you’ve seen how brutal this course was, so sit back and enjoy!
Excellent job this year, CX Hairs!
