it looked like the aero extensions slipped down (happened to me many times) but then he pulls the whole handlebar assembly off the steer tube...

I made fun of him lots but congrats to Farrar on 15 yr career. That is impressive.

Anyways, who is going to win Worlds RR? Really want to see someone other than Sags or GVA. Also nice to see Cummings tell BC to GFY after selecting him for the TT only with no specific prep.

The TTT will be interesting this year, despite the accolades not exactly being great, but there's a lot of really strong teams that could win it.

I'll fall out my chair if Froome wins the ITT which, yes, he stands a really good chance if he's not fatigued which is entirely possible given his apparently mutant physique (only 15s off the pace of Dumoulin at Rio, Martin will lose time on the climb, Kiryenka only won Richmond because of no competition there, etc). Not sure why Thomas refuses to do it when he's doing the TTT anyway.

For the RR, your usual suspects it looks like: Sagan, GVA, Kwiatkowski.. I'd love to see Boasson Hagen win it though, but I'm afraid he'll always be a step behind the rest of these guys.

A good advertisement for why you should wear mitts when cycling. Moncoutie never used to wear mitts when racing and the French cycling press frequently gave him a hard time about it as they felt it set a bad example to younger riders.

I have a "anyone but Sky" mentality when I watch grand tours, partially because of the TUE/testosterone follies (I know, I know everyone is doing it...), but partially because the Sky train sucks the excitement out of most races.

Watching Sagan in the Worlds, sure he has won two years in a row, but both were incredible. The attack in 2015 and a perfectly timed sprint in 2016. Winning the race two completely different ways.

So I can't bring myself to "anyone but Sagan" because he's so entertaining. But would be happy to see someone else win too...

I'd love to see another duel between Sagan and Kwiato. MK's been a beast this season and if he somehow manages to carry his form all the way to the worlds, he's a sure shot. Sagan on the other hand, even in great shape, experiences 'those days'. of course being a double champion takes the pressure off - but still he has no team to count on and all 'wannabes' marking his every move.

allegedly Raimondas Rumsas (dude who out of nowhere went on to 3rd overall in Tdf circa 2000) doped his own son to death...

http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/rumsas-under-investigation-into-sons-death/


reading stories like that make me wonder how much riders on big teams and they families appreciate having proper doctors and thorough care. that everyone dopes is clear as day, but doing it the safe way seems a lot more complicated and expensive. riding for such a 'piss small' team desperate to break through must be a nightmare. almost makes me hate pro cycling :/

That's really sad if the allegations are true about Rumsas regarding his son. The cycling news article is (as usual) barely an article.

He had a lot of results before the tour podium.
