Can we please stop the talk about doping?

I want to hear some opinions on Van Der Poels form, riding and winning streak. He seems unbeatable, when he doesn’t have a crash or mechanical. I really hate that almost all interviews with him are in his native lanuage. I want to know what he is saying. Did he comment on the route from this weekends World cup race in Bogense, Denmark?

I started reading this thread long time ago because this was the best forum to have a look of the equipment pros were riding.

I want to see the output from his powermeter (if he uses one), watching him attack and then tear off across the "beach" at Gieten at what looked like 30+kph was an eye opener......

Pretty much unstoppable unless he crashes or breaks something. (or decides not to go, Van Der Haar the other week).

The cheer when he hit and clearer the banking at Bogense was good to hear....

We made a decision NOT to go with about 36 hours to go. (it's only a 5 hour drive for us)

Possibly the wrong decision :/

Wow that's a book!



A young man doing very well at their chosen sport . Having contracts and endorsements. Sex ,drugs etc
,this goes with the territory. If this was football star etc this would not be a big deal but I think cycling fans somehow feel their hero’s should be above that sort of thing . In reality money fame etc effects a lot of young people the same. Cyclists are no different. It’s a perception that someone who rides a bike is a bit of a geek/nerd.
. I personally prefer honesty and no BS rather than paint a picture that just covers up the reality “ see Sky” cycling has not changed and people have not changed. I doubt we will ever have honesty in any sport and just carry on attacking any young person who doesn’t fit the hypocritical morals set by those who break them all the time and who are in power/ charge. Just take a look at the governments of the world ,there mostly run by insane lunatics promoting endless wars . Power ,money That’s the real corruption of the world.

On cycling news article about the israel academy's De Rosa SK pininfarina, they say they can't say whose sprinter bike is that, at leat not until January, so who is that mystery sprinter? haven't they already finalised their roster or have they got another signing and are waiting on announcing him later on as a surprise to get some more attention?

most of the israel academy team was on bont shoes already last year
some tried s works here and there ( dan craven ) , I also saw one in shimano R321 and one with empire slx
most of them rode vaypor s
didn't saw any with bont zero ( one boa not at the best place not so good to hold the feet compared to the vaypor s)
don't think shoes sponsor are a good idea
if one doesn't fit with bathtub bont shape , he'll wear something else with shoes covers that mimics the form of bont ..

Example : Tim wellness , ride s works sub6 , gaerne has made him several customs but he prefers the s works , for his shape of foot

Israel Cycling Academy Team were riding on ultegra DI2 last year and cheap tubular at the races where I saw them ( continental sprinter gator skin even on clean roads ) ... The team owner has lot of cash tough :x

good eye! I didnt notice that Wellens wore Gaerne shoecovers this year: until last year he wore real Gaerne

riders wearing non team sponsor shoes:

Quintana: sidi (instead of Diadora)
MAchado: gaerne (instead of Sidi)
Dowsett: Bont (instead of Diadora)
Fuglsang: specialized (instead of Sidi)

a few Movistar riders wear Diadora overshoes)

previously Zakarin wore Shimano and Spilak wore Specy (both instead of Sidi)
