Many pro riders have talked about their need to takeĀ  time completely off the bike to rejuvenate both their bodies and minds. Well the time has come for podiuminsight to do the same. For the past three years (and more), we have been traveling non-stop all over the United States, Canada and Europe to bring stories from the pro road and cyclocross scene. Though it was fun, life on the road has taken a toll mentally and physically and a break is definitely needed.

Break time

Break time

We’re not done yet! During this hiatus, we’ll be building a better site to continue to deliver stories, interviews, photos and more from the vibrant and exciting North American racing world. To be able to that well, we must be at races, traveling along with the circus and seeing the developing stories throughout the year. You see, to be true to our tenet of being the fan proxy, we simply must there, being an armchair cycling quarterback simply won’t cut it for us. So we’re recharging our batteries so we can get back on the road with energy and enthusiasm.

In other words, Elvis has left the building.

Remember when the King of Rock & Roll came back from his break, much sexier and clad in leather? Well that’s our plan, sort of.

    We’ll miss you terribly, but understand completely. Anxiously awaiting your return. Just make sure it’s in sexy leather, and not white ultrasuede jumpsuits with rhinestones and fringe…

    XOXO from cycletard and the crew at Cyclismas.com

    Sorry, that was supposed to read cyclocross (above comment). Silly auto-correct!
