  1. I’ve just started to listen to your podcast and I’m very impressed. I really like the variety of cycling topics. One small point and I’m sorry it’s a clarification; you mentioned that Petr Sagan won the Milan-San Remo 2013. It was actually Gerald Ciolek of MTN Qhubeka; I don’t normally get picky about these things, but I’m looking out for the ‘Little Guys’ on non World Tour Teams, especially as they beat very fancied riders in such a prestigious race with really appallling conditions. Gerald beat Sagan into second and Cancellara into third. Please keep up the great work.

  2. So David – you got me all ready to sign up for Readr…. only to discover it is Apple-only. Really? Didn’t think anyone would ignore the other 95% of the marketplace….. sad.

    And, I thought (from the Spokesmen discussions) that you were going to skip coverage of men’s roadie news this year. Cover the women’s peloton instead, or maybe cover MTB for a change.

  3. Sorry, Chris! As I mentioned at the start of the review, I only have iOS, MacOS and Windows. I would love to start reviewing Android and/or Windows tablet/phone apps, but I don’t have devices with those operating systems. If someone wants to send me one to use for tests, I would gladly accept. 🙂

    As for iOS being 5% of the tablet market . . .

  4. 5% of overall… they don’t have a client for Windows laptops either. Or any variety of linux.

  5. It’s a tablet app, and from what i can tell they don’t intend to create an app for laptops or desktops. And, from what I can also tell, it isn’t terribly well-supported. It’s pretty buggy, as I think I said in my review.
