Hesjedal worked for Martin, but also for Purito. But Purito made the wrong move (although i would have done the same, it was a smart move, how could he imagine MArtin was so strong?), or better said, Martin was stronger and smarter. it worked for Garmin this tiem, but it could have worked for Purito, specially if Dani Moreno didn't crash... pity
Happy Trails !!!

Interesting comments from Cadel at the current state of bike technology.

The Age (local Australian Paper)
Wiggins tried to rejoin the leading group which included Evans, but after another mechanical problem he finished ninth and fifth overall.

Evans, who was fifth on the stage and eighth overall, defended Wiggins' response having experienced similar woes in an illustrious career.

Fair or not, mechanicals are a part of the sport. But Evans is concerned that competition among some industry manufacturers for their products to be used and showcased by winning performances could lead to a rider's performance being impeded.
''There have been quite a few changes with some of the equipment this year. Some of the things the cycling industry is doing right now, I am a little bit disappointed with,'' Evans said.

''I can completely understand [Wiggins'] frustration. We are athletes and I am sure this is the same for any sport and profession, but we put in a lot of work to be there, and be at our best when we are there. Being let down by something that is not ready to be used in the race is pretty disappointing.''

From a granfondo in Mallorca this weekend. Nice for training, I suppose. Lachlan Morton leading Erik Zabel.

I think Linus suffers for being an outspoken proponent of anti-dopage. The guy has also had some horrid luck over the years w/ crashes too.

If Wiggins races a bottom gear of 34x28, the style police needs to shut up about 32t cassettes already, in particular on a training bike.
Here's to spinning up this summer :beerchug:

I think it looks more like a rash you can get from some massage oils if you have shaved your legs a few hours before the massage.
