Wasn't it fairly common knowledge that Sky didn't actually use Stages and Garmin didn't actually use the Vector pedal for anything but the highest profile events?


I have a good source on the Team Sky thing that backs this up. They were training on SRM.

FWIW I always saw Sioutsu (when @ Sky) training with a Stages PM
but the last time I saw him (already DD equipped, Rotor PM) he had a Garmin unit (510), as always, and a SRM head unit (PC VII, I guess) in blue Sky color. So yes it's probably true they were swapping and testing SRM-Stages to check for differences.

Probably just had a run in with a sassy TSA employee that implemented the full-on cavity search.

^That new Madone's looks. Any bike with convex tube shapes looks bad. Many De Rosa models come to mind.

Blythe's handlebar might be breaking UCI technical rules by over extending more than 5 cm over the centre of the front wheel.
(source (page 27): http://www.uci.ch/mm/Document/News/Rule ... nglish.PDF)
Good thing it seems to be one of the few rules that is ignored.
Or it's the angle of the shot :P

Carlos Betancur looks like he's 30lbs overweight. At least.

Haha yes. That Betancur photo just made me feel a lot better. Very curious to see how he goes this year but things are not looking good.

Ryder/Trek need to stop it with that handlebar bend.

Probably 20 lb.- he is short.
On one hand he can probably lose a good chunk of that with a solid month on the bike.
On the other hand, his chosen career is as a pro bike racer. He should be more serious.
