If he hasn't signed for next year yet, this ought to help. Funny how guys step up when under pressure for a contract.

wow
my boss today checks cycling news and goes "OH MY GOD" so me and one of the wrenches go check out whats going on, and my boss goes "one of my old teammates just won a stage of the vuelta!" I was really surprised, he said he had raced with pros, beat lance in a superweek race and all that but being on a first name basis with some of these guys, its just crazy.
thats the end of my ramble

And why does he appear to have two computer sensors on his front wheel? Does it make him go twice as fast?

i'll speculate that one is for his computer and the other is a timing chip for the race.

Aye, I'd agree with Botto. It's better seen in this photo.

I need to race more...then maybe I would have a better grasp of the obvious.

Danke.

And look at him churning the big/small combo; that's a good photo, Nomad.
