Here's all the goodness I've stumbled into this past week! From a searchable database on how often triathletes are drug tested, to a aerial camera plunking one triathlete during a race, to the un-boxing of a potato. Yes, a potato. Enjoy!

Mio adds wireless Shimano Di2 integration, ANT+ trainer control, phone and text notifications, power meter support, and much more to Cyclo bike head units. I go hands on with all the details:
