I noticed on tv that Hondo rode LW wheels in Rund um den Henninger Turm last monday. Maybe somebody has found a better picture? I'm pretty sure I saw a few more riders on LW's as well. I think I spotted Johan Coenen on a set as well?

He bought the 2 Ventoux frontwheels last year for the Tour of Germany. Why should he return them?

The next 2 were produced for Jan. We told him before that NOBODY had ever tried these wheels. We let him know that they NEVER have been mounted to any bicycle before.
He didn´t care
Can you imagine I was biting my fingernails in front of the TV the first stage he used them?
