Weird to choose 80mm+ tubulars for winter training, but maybe he knows the wheel builder. I guess Campagnolo won't like it.


campagnolo shouldn't be bothered
Lotto is probably riding Sram and Fulcrum wheels next year (what a weird combo)

those ridleys with campagnolo electric and bora wheels were so nice...

why has campagnolo just signed for 1 year with them? :noidea:

Fulcrum Wheels srl is a wholly owned company of Campagnolo that produces road bicycle and mountain bike wheelsets compatible with Campagnolo, Shimano and Sram drivetrains. The subsidiary brand was created so that Campagnolo could manufacture wheels compatible with products from rival drivetrain manufacturers, such as Shimano, without "pollution" of the brand

Speaking of Ride magazine, I only bought mine this week. There's mention in there of Cav and Wiggins trying to make the pursuit team for the Rio Olympics. While I don't doubt the veracity of the story, I doubt the intelligence of the idea. Of what benefit would bringing those two in be? I can't see that they'll improve the team at all, and unless Wiggo retires at the end of 2013 (as was rumored some time ago) I can't see the specific capabilities of a pursuiter being something he'll be able to produce. Any thoughts?

i can see wiggins as part and a benefit to a pursuit team (that's where it all started for him in cycling), but cavendish no, sprint yes of course

Cavendish wouldn't stand a chance in a track sprint, there is a very very big difference between sprinting on the track and on the road.

Not sure about Wiggins either, Mr Piste might have lost some of his pursuiting power due to specializing in climbing and long TTs. It would be interesting to see how his power profile has changed.

Wiggins can still do a job as the endurance guy who just hangs on as third wheel. Cav might come in and fill the job of Ed Clancy who is now going to be on the Team Sprint squad. The team pursuit these days is just a series of continuous sprints these days

Correct me if I am wrong, but isn't Cavendish a former World Champion track cyclist?

In the pursuit and Madison, he wouldn't stand a chance in track sprints. No road sprinter would. Those ( track sprinters ) that switch from track to road, e.g. Theo Bos, have to lose a lot of weight and the associated power in order to compete on the road.

Right at the end of the track cycling at the Olympics (which Cav was a pundit on for BBC) Cav was talking about potentially trying for team pursuit in Rio. Seems to me like there's two things in it: 1) as we all know he's desperate for an Olympic medal in his career. Course-wise he'll never have another chance on the road and the team pursuit is the only pure endurance event left on the track; 2) he seems to have a tendancy to get very... caught up in events. A lot of immediate enthusiasm about things that sound like a good idea right now. I wonder what he'll be saying in two years time, especially if he's competing for green jerseys with OPQS.
