It is the will of Marc Madiot, team manager.

He even asked a deputee to legalize this kind of restriction for the next french national champions.

I'm guessing Lightweight. It almost looks like you can make out the stripes.

The blue is a nice way to honor the race methinks. Or maybe he's cocky and wants that azzuro jersey.

Funny re OSys. Froome is the only current Sky rider on them. All these little guys that were in the top 10 before are now on them, but the team that started really using them en masse first is off em.
Don't take me too seriously. The only person that doesn't hate Froome.

I still don't quite buy into the whole OSym deal... even though I have a friend who uses them. Just don't get the hype.

Osymmetric puts you in a bigger gear when you can apply more torque. Cadence slows with the bigger gear ratio and you spend more time in the power stroke. Then you're in a smaller gear for the dead spot. The cadence increases and less time is spent there. More time in the power stroke = more power, right? Well, maybe. If your heart & lungs are already max'ed out, it won't help. So maybe it helps a little. But a little is still good.

Yeah. But did you watch the video? He's one-legged, no-handed, and waving his arms about.

If that isn't 'terribly tough', then maybe you have a calling in the circus? :wink:

Madiot is right to simplify the tricolore, best jersey in the bunch right now.
