The View From Pingtung Part II: Hounds of the Baskervilles

Basilica of Pingtung County

Michael from The View From Taiwan continues to taunt me with more pictures and wonderful reporting from his bike trip through Pingtung County, while reminding me of all the fun I would be having without a gimpy leg. Check out Part II of his series here.

Tour of Taiwan Wraps Giving Austrian Eibeggar The Win

Austrian, Markus Eibeggar walked away with the Tour of Taiwan GC title after coming back from behind in the 9 stage race.

This year's race ended on Yangmingshan for a little more of a finale, where Eibeggar found his legs and the win over his teammate.

Taiwan's top finisher, Huang Hsin-hua, finished 25th overall and the Aussie team Drapac Professional Cycling won the team classification as a little gift for David on Formosa.

Now if only they'd come up with a more original winner's jersey. The gold jersey outside the TdF is kind of cliche.
