When I hit refresh on my iTunes podcasts today, I discovered CyclingNews.com had also done their first podcast of the year, albeit a young and tender show #36.
I listened to our show until a few minutes from the end amassing a slough/slew (?) of notes, links and tags, which will be posted and/or updated in due time.
Tour Down Under video highlights:

Rob picks: Armstrong, Zubeldia, Kloden, Leipheimer, Steegmans, Popovych, Horner, Rast, Paulinho

Photo by Hans. Yes, that's a real rattler. This picture was taken somewhere in Arizona a couple years back. To hear about that trip's story, you'll have to listen to Bicicleteiros #36: Toad Whisperer. Please check out Hans's SmugMug for more cool photos.

Our first song of 2010 is from Riu, who gave us a track called Jumping into the Line last year. It arrives as our 40th music track since our last music countdown, and thus slots in at #40 in our latest countdown.
Image from a political blog (mentirabrasil.blogspot.com/) who probably got it from the URL you see on the image. I'll take it down if asked by the owner.
