A new wind tunnel facility for cyclists has opened. That's cool. They claim that if Cadel Evans had put tape over the vents in his time trial helmet, he'd have finished 30 seconds faster and won the race. I'm skeptical.
Oh and btw, anyone here wishing to try out the facility? No problem.Based on testing and calculations, second-place finisher Cadel Evans could have shaved about 30 seconds off his time in the aerodynamic time trials - and won the tour - simply by taping over the vents on his helmet, Coté said.
"You don't need to use drugs to win," he said.
An hour of testing in the tunnel and a data package and analysis will put a cyclist back $1,075.
