I'd say that Iban was getting nervous...Originally Posted by divekrb
OK, I'll bite. Nervous about what?Originally Posted by Bruco
For too long have we sat under the thumb of mankind.
Now is the time to OPPOSE that thumb!
I'm not fat, I'm a sprinter!
i wondered that myself... why was he not riding the orca to begin with...?
About not being able to pedal efficiently, forcefully and carelessly. Don't know what exactly was going on with him in that particular stage, but Iban clearly was having a terrible off-day and suffered mentally as well. Maybe getting on a different bike was a desperate last attempt at reversing things...Originally Posted by Mojo GoGo
Because he prefers the Starship frame to the Orca. Having owned both I can't blame him.Originally Posted by KoNG
Wouldn’t the change of bikes actually imply the opposite?Originally Posted by 2Rodies
No. He's ridden a Starship in every mountain stage in the last two seasons. He rode one to victory on Mt Ventoux in the Dalphine (sp) last year. There could have been other reasons for the switch such as something on his Starship was amiss and the only other bike they had available was the Orca. Besides my answer was to KoNG who was asking why he didn't ride the Orca to begin with and that is because he preffers the Starship over the Orca.Originally Posted by bac
Fair enough.Originally Posted by 2Rodies
Yeah....he would have been feeling a bit "off" that day. First thing pros do is request a bike change.
