Another thought I had was, between Russia's interfering in western elections and wholesale cheating at the Olympics, why doesn't the west tell them to F--- off and cut them off from the internet. It seems like it would be pretty easy to just block all internet traffic in and out of Russia. Screw them, pretend they don't exist. And give them a lifetime ban from the Olympics.
Because the West never interferes in elections or cheats in sporting events?

They all do it and they all, or at least most of them, feign outrage when it is highlighted. It's okay that they know they do it. It's a problem when we know they do it.

Now back to Pro Cycling.

I've had a protone a few months bought it new second hand for 100 € , it was great super fit super quality ( leather , foams ) . better than specialized and giro at least ... I sold it because it was white , I want black . Now Kask have the valegro witch is light but I think will be too ventilated for me . I like aero helmet cause they tend to cancel a part of the noise of the wind when riding ... The Valegro is at the same price than the proton while being lighter kudos to them 200€ bike24 and 180 gr !!!!!

8) Couple shots of him tapping his glasses throughout - could be seeing things but looks like some fun tech.

Except of course, at least as far as cheating in sport is concerned, with Russia it is the state that is behind it . For most of the rest of the world the cheating down to athletes, coaches, teams. And only Russia has murdered people to try cover it up. I trust the difference is quite obvious. Elections? Politics? A different topic - not relevant to this thread.

If you'd only show a picture of the shoe/sock combo I would say it's from the Ale Cipollini team

But what about Sagans camera glasses? :shock:
What? Camera glasses? Are they showing stuff on the lenses for him like a read out or is there an actual camera on the frames or something?
