    Finally, a successful break. Great final kick by Lindeman.

    Aru rode that last km like a man possessed!

    TJ still leads for Team BMC, but the margin is narrowing.

    It's not clear how much time elapsed between the cyclist waving the motorist around and the cyclist's swerve to the center of the road. It doesn't take a hot-head motorist to be angered by an...

    So, who is Team BMC's GC favorite/leader - Sanchez or Vangarderen?

    A name not yet mentioned is Larry Warbasse, who will be racing the Vuelta with IAM Cycling. New name to me; looks like his first Grand Tour.

    Looks like we'll see at least one rider at this week's Vuelta a Espana riding with disc brakes. UCI is allowing test runs; Team Trek is going to give it a go.

    Trek Factory Racing confirms at least...

    The groups I ride with have never made an issue of disc brakes. Aero bars, ear buds, and helmetlessness, however, are unpardonable.

    Post of the Month.

    Newbs only annoy me if they don't listen, as to safety rules and common sense. Poor energy management and top-end gear are harmless.

    Wow, what a brutal route. Stage 11 - over 5000m of climbing; Stages 14-16, not much less.

    Trek bringing disc brakes? Anyone else?

    All pretty much rumors and speculation, at this point. I believe UCI bars teams publicizing transfers until August 1. I suspect TVG's early departure from le Tour has BMC giving RP a hard look.

    Sorry; the razor reference was too obtuse. I simply meant that Froome's appearance is the polar opposite of the muscular, road-worn athlete image that the TdF evokes.

    I have two road bikes: one with a triple (52/39/30), the other with compact (50/34.) Most of the time, I have a tight (11-23) cassette on the triple, so the lower end is no lower than the compact....

    OP bike is gorgeous! Is English a commercial brand? Haven't heard of 'em.

    I assume there's a rear brake, at/near the chainstays.

    Yes, unless it was a reaction from a fan, TM's swerve to the right sure looks "offensive."

    Quintana also appeared injured; any word?

    About twice a year is all I can handle; it's just not that great of a ride, IMO. It's like a 1/3-scale Haleakala. Granted, it's a 90-minute drive for me to get there, but still.
