Top NYVC pages of 2012

Mon, 12/31/2012 - 3:07pm by schmalz

If there's one thing that I enjoy, it's content that creates itself. And since we're in a week of slothful laziness, let's roll with that notion and just put up a list, which is the laziest of all forms of journalism. Our list is the ranking of the top five pages from the past year, and how you may ask, did we get this ? I went to our primitive page counter and saw which ones were the most popular. It's that easy!

In fifth place, we have "Garmin Mounts: Barfly vs Quarq", it's not exactly Ali vs Frazier, but this page proves that eventually all gear reviews get googled and put into forums somewhere.

In fourth place is "Behind the Scenes of the Contador CAS hearing with Michael Ashenden", another informative and interesting conversation with Michael Ashenden. One really has to wonder how it got onto our site.

In third place is "A Filthy Business Indeed", where guest letter writer Michael Ashenden takes a shark-sized bite out of sock puppet Phil Liggett. It may be time for Phil to consider not talking any more.

In second place is "David Anthony Tests Positive", and again, I reiterate that DA can intercourse himself.

And our top hit getter for 2012 is "Paul Kimmage Defense Fund", who knew that a page with a Chipin widget could be so popular? Special thanks go to Cyclimas.com and the Twitter-er @Digger_forum for making this page possible.

You may also have noticed that all of these pages were posted by Andy Shen, so by default we have to give the NYVC employee of the year award to him, and he will be receiving a portion of the proceeds from the hit count of those pages (don't tell him it's nothing, we'll make that a surprise). Thank you Andy, well done!

Mr. Wave Ring, the only individual who would feel as passionately as you do about the issues you raise, or even be aware of them, is "DA" himself. It seems probable that you are, in fact, "DA", a fact that, in light of your previous actions and recent posts, catapults you up into previously unfathomable heights of douchebaggery.

Please continue to entertain yourself. If you insist on talking about yourself, I'm sure someone here will play along. This site is a welcoming community that celebrates the inherent worth and dignity of every anonymous person. Even you.

not only is this site a joke, but the the fact that you are STILL talking about DA proves you have no lives!! get over it! it's old news! move on!! no one cares!! you all talk so much shit behind the safety of your fake name. none of you have the balls to say what you really think to his face (uhm...andy shen) and frankly none of you even have a chance of even being in the top 3 of any of your races so if getting on this forum and spewing hate is what gets you thru the day and makes you feel better about your lack of talent then i feel sorry for you.

this site is a joke. you internet trolls are the biggest bunch of posers out there and so is Andy. At least Dan is a respectable racer and Alex has his devo team. Andy is nothing but but a fucking internet geek that could never race and could never know what it is to train to fight for a result. A true Fred in a "team kit" you can't prove me wrong about being a geek but i would challenge you to try and rase 10% of the money you got for the kimmage fund and donate it to a real cause like "i challenge myself" or something like that..go ahead do...why not? or even let's see you not wright about Lance or doping for 6 month. you can't...... why? your a geek.

kimmage has a right to be mad at the world, but at this point, for cryin' out loud, rather than complain and point fingers, maybe he can become part of the solution.

who knows, maybe even be a team pr/media manager or something.

anything.

I'm still waiting for the write-ups about women cyclists. I mean, they're generally the only ones who can really do justice to spandex and I'm getting tired of seeing men wagging their tongues to the camera as they speed by, or in the case of one rider unnamed, squirting their water bottle - that shot made me quite uncomfortable.

I'll probably read the article but I keep coming back to see if you've added any pics. More girls, please!

I like and respect both Dan and Andy and love the site. But, it's ok, let's all just admit they screwed the pooch on this one and move on. There's no defending it. They promised something and didn't deliver. We don't pay for anything here, no biggie, but in journalism credibility is all you got, and you lose some of it when you promise something and don't deliver.

By: ...
Tue, 01/01/2013 - 6:33pm

Do people really believe that Dan and Andy were in on a doping conspiracy with a guy who was a sub par cat 2? That's perhaps as idiotic as DA doping for the races he won.

This isn't really that hard to follow. DA screwed Dan and Andy by doping. It made them look really bad. He then told them that he'd tell his story so they could publish it. Instead he ran to Velonews, screwing them again. The guy is a first rate attention whore. NYvelocity basically centered on nothing more than tirades about DA for weeks. Why should they stir it again just to give the guy yet more attention.

Guys like that should wallow in obscurity. They had nothing new to add so why should they continue give a guy that repeatedly fucked them over attention. DA deserves nothing less than a swift kick in the balls. I hope he never has the audacity to race a bike again.

For those who are interested, DA opines in the latest Road Bike Action. My favorite part of that article is his ambivalence as to whether the doping aided his performance. Still delusional.

I miss Fromaggi and hope he returns in written form for 2013. Less doping more cycling. We have a great local racing scene, pro cycling is awesome - positive in '13!

Mon, 12/31/2012 - 6:21pm

I addressed it in another thread but I guess I should've put it in the DA page as well. VeloNews took the legs out of our write up so there was almost nothing for us to add. I confirmed the source of his drugs and also spoke to USADA to make sure that he acted alone and there wasn't a 'ring'. A few people recommended that I just drop it, since it wasn't worth stirring up the vitriol again. Since that was also the lazy option I chose it.
