Yeah, have seen that list, was wondering that maybe it applies if you want to use them in TT. 808s and many other 65+mm still on there :confused:

Didn't Cookson put all of the UCI tech restriction projects on hold? Or did the 65mm rule come in beforehand?

None of the 2014 team bikes have arrived yet. Saxon is new to the team, like me, so has permission to ride his old bike.

The 65mm depth limit and the revised UCI wheel testing and stickering scheme seems to have been put on hold for the moment from what I have read.

Was Sky sponsored by SRM? From what I read in Sky's official books, they certainly bought their own SRM. They considered it necessary but also said very costly, though the swapping of PM shouldn't have anything to do with financial concern given their budget size.

I assume that clip is after the finish. Otherwise it looks like Evans gifted the win. I didn't see the race, so I don't know where/when that took place.

After the sprint finish. No gifting.

If you didn't see the race then why comment?

Understandable and I've seen it happen at Nationals before but I'm always a bit surprised that the current bike sponsor (or team) doesn't appear to request that the 'substitute' manufacturers logos be 'taped over' for the duration of such a major event.

That happened to me and my team mates last year. Depends on the sponsor really.

My 'Giant' was quite subtle... Otherwise they're quite well done, which is why you probably don't spot them.

Great coverage of the US CX nats, that was cool to have the live streaming vid. Too bad the commentating was just so bad that you had to put it on mute.
