    Read the sleeves. Thats a Hammer Gel.

    I can take no credit for the color coordination. That was done by a very talented (on and off the bike) gal on the team. I think she did our website too.

    You must have, or something got reshuffled because Seth is right at the front of that front group but he ended up in your group at the end...

    coo , I just found it funny to see that you wrote it after I was talking about it with a Dutch ex pro racer who happens to be about 190cm only last weekend.

    What are your crank lengths?
    It looks (maybe the angle) that you're almost clipping but not leaning that deep in.

    Yeah, that group opened up a small gap over the top of the climb. We caught back on probably 1/2 mile after the turnaround.

    looks like a sunny day, why the cap under the helmet?

    I don't have contacts or rx sunglasses so it helps with the sun.

    175's. I agree, not much of a lean there but pretty close to clipping. Good thing I wasn't running anything longer.

    Do you use Speedplays? That usually helps too. From what I've heard.

    I do it because I have no hair and don't want spectacular helmet vent hole tan lines on my chrome dome(plus it offers some protection from bees getting in the helmet). Usually turn the bill around backwards on sunny days though.

    Mean people are like slinkys. They're really not worth much but still are rather entertaining to watch tumble down the stairs.

    Same here, minus the bald part.

    That's TWO races this year in which you lapped the field.
