Whatever you think of Lance Armstrong, and around here we've had to make a conscious effort not to hold those trainers against him, there's no escaping the fact that apart from riding a bike and commiting fashion crimes with footwear – he does do some important stuff in the fight against cancer.
That includes funding research through the Livestrong Foundation and indeed other charities channel funding in to Livestrong for just this reason, one such is rubanut.com a new US charity that is trying to raise funds and awareness for the fight against testicular cancer, the one that nearly did for Armstrong himself. The stats about detection rates etc are all US-related, but the advice applies to the all the nuts in the world… so worth taking a look, and having a regular self diagnostic furtle.
Plucked from the obscurity of his London commute back in the mid-Nineties to live in Bath and edit bike mags our man made the jump to the interweb back in 2006 as launch editor of a large cycling website somewhat confusingly named after a piece of navigational equipment. He came up with the idea for road.cc mainly to avoid being told what to do… Oh dear, issues there then. Tony tries to ride his bike every day and if he doesn't he gets grumpy, he likes carbon, but owns steel, and wants titanium. When not on his bike or eating cake Tony spends his time looking for new ways to annoy the road.cc team. He's remarkably good at it.
