Friday is upon us! Episode 018 features the original Predator gang on an overcast and sleepy afternoon. Rain in LA? Psh...this is not cycling weather. We discuss the World Tour's deferred decision to accept Astana as a licensed 2015 World Tour contender, weird bicycle pump medical news, pointless world records, and 8 terms you're probably mispronouncing. The group also delves into a recent anonymous boycott of USA standards and practices. A newly formed blog/forum named "USA Cycling Restart" is aiming to openly point out USA Cycling mistakes within corporate culture, misappropriations, funding, and administrative failures. Aptly named moderator "Thomas Paine," lists his/her demands for restructure of the program as a whole. It's in interesting proposition and readers can comment and suggest more opinions for infrastructure change. Don't forget that our Major Bars, a carbon one-piece bar/stem combo is now 10% off if ordered prior to Dec. 31, 2014. All orders will be fulfilled by February 2015! Have a great weekend kiddos!
