Bikesport Radio Debuts in Southern California on Monday, January 26 - Bikesport Radio is a news and talk show that will play on Los Angeles Free Radio and initially be a bi-weekly program. The show is new for SoCal and has the goal of helping cycling gain more media exposure. Bikesport Radio will report on the weekends' race results and hopes to have guests in the studio. The show will be at noon on alternate Mondays and beginning on January 26th, Junior National Champion Iggy Silva will be in the studio. Juniors are the future of our sport, and your calls are welcome to talk with Iggy.

The inventor of Geolung, a new breathing device that can be used to filter out contaminated air during commuting or off-road riding, strengthen the lungs, or even to simulate altitude training depending on which filter is installed will also be in the studio.

To ask the radio guests questions, please call 213-252-0998.
The non-profit studio currently has only one line so most likely you will get a busy signal, so please be patient.

Happy 50th Birthday Jolie.


Sunday, the 18th, was a summer warm day, 150 laps around the track, lots of food and drink, good friends, pink gifts, and one delicious birthday cake! Sounds like a 50th to be remembered.

Photos from last night's training at the Velodrome.

Iggy and his little brother Eddie... Watch out Iggy!

Thank You Premier Nutrition.


Thank you Premier for supporting Iggy. Your products are great!

The torch has been passed...

And I am honored to carry the torch through the next phase of Iggy's career. Ted, you did an awesome job creating and maintaining this blog! I will post with great respect for what you started.

So I hear people love to see photos, look out Iggy fans, photos you will have. I will be going to as many of Iggy's races as I can, the first one is at the LA Velodrome on the 24th.

Who am I, you wonder? Well, I am a huge cycling fan and a recreational rider (5000+ miles per year). I am an amateur photographer with a big dream to make it a profession. How lucky am I to be able to combine my two biggest passions in life? And the icing on the cake is the fact that my love for what I do can now benefit the Iggys. What a wonderful feeling.

I met the Iggys at the Dana Point Grand Prix on June 1, 2008. I had my telephoto lens pointed at the start of the Pro 1&2 race. Daddy Iggy walked right up to me and said "See that kid in the white jersey? Take a picture of him, he is my son. He is going to be a star." I had never seen a bike race in person, let alone photograph one. Having someone specific to focus on made all the difference and gave me a reason to be there. I ended up with some great shots (July 6, 2008 post).

Meeting the Iggy's has been a Godsend for me, this is going to be a really fun ride!
