Cycling Inquisition is a fantastic cycling blog that does an amazing job writing about the current happenings in the world of the pro peloton. Though the focus is on the history and experience of the Colombian cycling legends of the past, present and future, the site overall is an amazing collection of extremely well written and researched articles that reach well beyond the Escarabajos who call Colombia their homeland. A great example is the current post covering the happenings at this years Giro d'Italia on Friday, May 24th; the day that Stage 19 was cancelled due to blizzard like conditions on the days climbs and also the day that Danilo Di Luca was announced as having tested positive for EPO in an out of competition test the month before. As always the post is thoroughly enjoyable with more than a few items that nearly made me laugh out loud. This being one of the best:
"Only seconds later, Mario Cipollini walked in. He was wearing a skintight white shirt, matching white Nike hightops, and bedazzled jeans that looked like they were stolen from a flea market in Kansas, and would probably make Michael Ball cringe."
