    See the other thread on this topic. There was a good reason for this very unusual stoppage. Purpose wasn't to let fallen riders catch up, although that is what happened. Purpose was because all...

    Yeah, Small's guest ride was just an experiment, a publicity thing as it were. I don't think men and women should normally compete against each other in road racing. But if this helped get women...

    Early days I know, but Contador didn't impress in the ITT and he didn't impress up the Mur. Maybe he's timing to peak in week 3, but maybe this is a sign that he hasn't recovered enough.

    The thing is, when is the last time you saw Nibali drop Froome or Contador on a MTF - like never? And how often have you seen Nibali dropped off the back by those guys - not uncommon, I think. ...

    This sort of random, pointless accident really irritates me. Might as well pull riders' names out of a hat every day and expel them from the race.

    For most of the GC guys, today was a wash. ...

    Boom started so Astana will be probably expelled from the MPCC, unless the MPCC changes its rules.

    It was sold as a triathlon bike, right?. Those are usually ridden on flattish courses. And bikes sold in flat states often have close range freewheel. 14-22 doesn't sound out of line.

    You might considering bringing the bare frame and fork to a powder coater who does bikes. $100 and the frame/fork will look like new. They will take care of blasting the stickers and old paint off.

    Lars Boom has low cortisol, under MPCC rules he can't ride the Tour, and under UCI rules Astana may not substitute another rider at this late date. So expect Astana to quit the MPCC in the next 24...

    That's what I've read too. Many of the top women pro racers are barely paid, sometimes hardly more than expenses. They are riding for the love of the sport.

    I think that remains true. The Bell helmets I tried were round, the Giro helmets oval. The POC seemed oval too.
