Nothing new for sprinters though? Haven't all sprinters been head-butting at some point?
At least he didn't intentionally take people out like Cav did in the Tour de Swiss a while back.

What has IAM done this year that is worth noting? Cofidis has actually animated stage races in the past, but IAM has pretty much stunk this year.

Eisel needs to get over himself. The head-butt looked to be standard affair for sprinters & trains. Actually, didn't Eisel himself once comment on how the final moments of a sprint & train can be very combative for position? Or it might have been someone else.

Video of the moment below. Oh, look Bernie! No one crashed, no one's wheel was intentionally taken out. Looks a bit common place stuff.

No shit! He has to go in the red to win, wow I didn't expect that. :shock:


Selective quoting - he was talking about how hard he had to work for positioning in the final stages, and saying that winning sprinters are the ones who can launch a sprint when they're already in the red (but what does he know, he can't win without a lead out train :P ).

Also, like Wiggo on a TT bike, Cav in a sprint is a one man seminar on the importance of aero body position on a bike.

At least this way there was a bit of hope for the others.

It has a velentino rossi rear wheel, with neon yellow spokes, and the front is a new mavic cosmic prototype with neon green stickers... Wow!

BTW, What's new in that Dogma? Is the same crap as before.
Happy Trails !!!

Thanks for linking the video, Pren. It does look like Bouhanni is all over the place though.

Those shallower Mavics look very interesting!

And glad someone else caught the Vale' wheel :)
