    You probably know people who are carrying FitBits or similar, tracking their daily "steps", and joining up in "support groups" to compare steps each day. I now find myself in one of those groups,...

    Preferred measure of gearing

    You are made King, and your first act is to decree how all your subjects will refer to bicycle gearing from now on. Do you order everyone to use gear inches? Or something else?

    Riis is out, terms of separation confidential, replacement not yet named. Rider morale must be shaky, as all the Tinkov riders who were willing to make statements seemed to be backing Riis.

    Seems pretty easy to check for motors, so why not do a few well-publicized surprise checks to discourage any experimenters. I'd think they can combine those checks with controls for bike weight and...

    I think it would be interesting to see Riis take his $1MM for doing nothing this year, and watch Tinkov scramble to salvage his team.

    How does a time error like that get made? I don't know how in-race timing is performed, how break-peloton gaps are measured. GPS on motorbikes?

    Oleg Tinkov

    Do you bet Tinkov will mess up his team's performance, or get the most out of them, this year?

    Latest: he appears to have suspended Riis.

    You should cut up an old pair of jeans and make some denim bar wrap. The bars must match the saddle and all that. And I think it could look cool.
