    Cancellera catches the motorcycles in London...

    Did anyone see that London prolog TT chicane where Cancellara was riding so friggin fast one of the pace motorcycles in front of him looked like the were going to crash trying to negotiate the turns fast enough to stay ahead of the storming TT cyclist? Cancellera was right up their butts. I've seen that on fast mountain descents. NEVER on a flat TT. That was dude was HAMMERING.

    My Honda goes 0-100 in 8.3 seconds. That's faster than Cypress. Maybe not with a tailwind, but most days I mean.

    As a motorcyclist who pilots a Honda CBR, this aspect of the 2007 TdF is very interesting. Good stuff.

    can anyone share that video with me? i have been searching all over the internet to find a video of that but no luck. i hear everybody talking about. also want to see how stuart o'grady could have fallen on a short time trial event with not that many turns.

    The J.A.T.O. would certainly be a serious ***** to try and draft.

    The motorpacing bike at track nationals was a Suzuki Bandit (I think it was a Bandit) with a special steel roller on the back, so the lead rider could rub his wheels on it without going down.

    Since when do motorcyclists describe themselves as "pilots?" The only flying I've ever seen any of them do is purely inadvertent and usually involves death or serious injury.

    DrPete,

    You make a very good point. That is a designation I had previously never heard.

    Well thank God there's no risks associated with cycling.

    By the way Hell has Frozen Over. Harely Davidson has announced the availability of ABS brakes as an option for a bunch of its 2008 bikes.
