This isn't surpising. The spanish have been like this for years when some doping scandal may have implicated their precious footballers or their tennis stars.

So with the Giro fast approaching what are Team BMC going to ride? TMR01 or SLR01? The SLR01 seems to be rarity of a sight for a bike thats meant to dominate the SLR01 with those "Watt savings"


My guess would be SLR01 for the mountain stages and TMR01 for the faster flatter ones but I'm sure each rider has their preferences and will choose accordingly. I've read that BMC like to have the riders race all of their bikes so maybe we will see the Impec in action, which seems to be much more of a rarity than the SLR01 :noidea:

^that may make for some really entertaining racing after (IMO) few really boring Tours. some years back there was this Giro with Simoni and Cunego riding for same team and fighting for Maglia Rosa.. boy that was fun to watch

No, last year was Tour '85 revisited. This year may be Tour '86 revisited.

Wiggins not going to the Tour to win it and show respect to the yellow jersey is weak as piss.
The fat lady hasn't sung yet, and Froome may be no Lemond, but let's see whether Wiggins does an Hinault to Froome. Of course, they may both be wasted by others in the field.

love the irony in how froome's gf is 'fed up' with the media circus she continues to perpetuate...

Froome has to go.....no way Wiggo is going to the Tour to not defend his title. Froome needs to reign in his lady as well....not her place to comment publicly.

I notice he was riding the O-Sys rings when that happened, and has since announced in that BBC interview he is "off those silly rings".
