I failed. I could rarely satisfy 2 of those conditions. So I went to Belgium […]

I decided to stock them quite simply because I liked the look of them and the quality was high. I had no idea how popular they would prove to be. What I didn’t know is that a few months prior, the owner […]

So I would strongly bet that he is looking to prove a point or two at the Tour de Suisse which suits him well with a good amount of time trialling in the mix. It should make for good watching.

What is it about Chris Froome…? http://stolengoat.com/chris-froome/ http://stolengoat.com/chris-froome/#comments Tue, 10 Jun 2014 14:03:00 +0000 http://stolengoat.com/?p=6643 Let me start this by saying that I do like Chris Froome. He is a supreme athlete and an excellent bike rider. I enjoy watching him tear bits out of the peleton and, unlike many pundits – I’m pretty confident he isn’t doping.

Don’t Be More Dog… Be More Goat http://stolengoat.com/be-more-goat/ http://stolengoat.com/be-more-goat/#comments Fri, 23 May 2014 09:32:03 +0000 http://stolengoat.com/?p=6514 If you live in the UK and watch TV, chances are you’ve seen the Be More Dog campaign by O2. It’s a good campaign, good fun – and engaging. The essence of the campaign being that dogs are care free and have a “Carpe Diem” or seize the day attitude. That’s cool. But I’m not […]

How To Survive The Tour Of Flanders http://stolengoat.com/survive-tour-flanders/ http://stolengoat.com/survive-tour-flanders/#comments Wed, 09 Apr 2014 08:04:19 +0000 http://stolengoat.com/?p=6228 Last weekend was the spectacle that is the Tour of Flanders (or how the locals call it the Ronde van Vlaanderen or just the Ronde). Apparently, the viewing rate of Fabian Cancellara’s third win was 85% and I’d hazard a guess that the remainder were along the course or watched on big screens, just as […]

Knowing this, and armed with the knowledge that pro cycle team Lampre Merida exclusively use Salice shades you’d be forgiven for thinking that they were priced in the same ball park as Oakleys […]

Where usually a veritable rainbow of opinions emerges, in his case seemingly, there aren’t even 50 shades of grey. It’s black or white, love or hate. Like Marmite. Yet, while I have a very […]
