About

Bleeding Carrots is a blog devoted to marginal sports in America with commentary by non-marginal people.

The phrase “bleeding carrots” comes from Matt Lloyd of the Omega Pharma Lotto team during the 2010 Tour de France, when he was quoted as saying the following about the Euskaltel-Euskadi team:

“They just fall off. There’s no reason why. You’ll just be riding along and there they’ll be like a bleeding carrot in the middle of the road lying in pain.”
