Italian cyclist Ivan Basso may be returning to the Tour de France for the 2010 season. He will decide next month with his team, Liquigas, if he will be riding in the Giro d’Italia, the Tour de France, or both. Basso is no stranger when it comes to grand tours, as he won the 2006 Giro d’Italia, and placed second behind Lance Armstrong at the 2005 Tour de France. “When I saw the Tour route I said, ‘very cool’ to myself. The Tour is the Tour. I like it all: the pavé, climbs, descents. Like the Giro, when you love something, you love all parts of it,” says Basso. “The Giro, Tour and Vuelta give me the strongest feelings.

While Alberto Contador enjoys his vacation in the Caribbean, he will be back to work deciding where he’s going to ride for next year. His brother and manager, Francisco Contador, says that it is likely that his brother will stay with Astana, but if so, it will only cover the 2010 season. Francisco told the Spanish Biciclismo that the work of Yvon Sanquer, team boss of Astana, is resulting in a “good impression” of the team’s progress. Alberto and his brother will begin talking about what they will do when Alberto returns home to Madrid on Thursday. As far as the rumors go about a multi-year, 8 million euro-a-year offer from Astana goes, Contador says that they’re all fake. “It’s incredible. This weekend I was in Florence relaxing with my wife so it was impossible for me to have met with anyone…

Lending a hand to someone else, a sip of water, a spare tube, a word of encouragement, a friendly smile… while you compete against yourself… that’s the true spirit of La Ruta,” says organizer Roman Urbina. Some favorites for the men’s La Ruta race are Tinker Juárez, Jeremiah Bishop, Bingen Fernandez, Marc Trayter, Mauricio Patiño, Rune Christopher Hoydahl, Manuel ‘Manny’ Prado, Ben Bronston and Milton Ramos, and five-time…

CamelBak Mule Lightweight Hydration Pack 2010

CamelBak hydration systems have become very popular over the years, allowing you to store water and drink it without using your hands. However, they have been known to be “overbuilt,” making them less efficient than they are intended to be. One issue with the CamelBak MULE is its weight. The CamelBak Mule Lightweight Hydration Pack 2010, however, has dropped some of the unnecessary while maintaining its utility uses such as storage, and now actually has comfort. It features a big pocket where you can store pumps and other things, and a smaller pocket for little odds-and-ends such as keys, tools, etc. There’s even a handy cell phone/ipod/glasses holder at the top of the harness. The new-and-improved CamelBak Mule Lightweight Hydration Pack 2010 has shed 200 grams, is a lot more comfortable, and is cheaper than its bulkier counterpart at $130.91.
