Hard to know for sure but my guess would be Tiff Cromwell (she lives in Monaco).



Nice call...she has it retweeted on her account for May 4, so prob. is her -- https://twitter.com/tiffanycromwell" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

BTW...for all those that like to stuff all their flat fixin stuff in their jersey pocket, check out all the saddle bags in the pic. :D

Make a trip to Giro and catch them behind the feedzone :-)

Hmm, could be another girl to my wallpaper instead of current Emily Batty.

What is fun that when you put her name in google, the first phrase is "Tiffany Cromwell boyfriend" :-)))

from a secret pro:
http://cyclingtips.com.au/2013/05/the-secret-pro-2/

Interesting to read the comments... In this piece this "secret pro" says that soon a GT winner will be banned due to biological passport anomalies... I wonder who is it... Rumors point to Basso, or Cobo or Menchov or ...

But guys, I read on the internet that his bars are too low to descend properly so how did he manage to do that so well?


Maybe if he raised them a little he could descend even better...? ;)

COBO?

BTW, in case anyone is still interested in Hansen's shoes, he personally confirmed they are very comfortable when asked today before Stage 4. Very hard to imagine, especially since my colleague squeezed one of his shoes and said it felt "very hard"...

Not sure how to add that up, but there you have it.

Ok. That one I am interested in.

Please let that come to market and not just be a one-off.

Porte re-signs with Sky.

Surprising.

Why do you think it's surprising?
He was very eager to get to Sky from Saxo, I'm sure he is paid very well there.

Uh... yeah? So? What difference does it make to me how those guys carry their stuff? :noidea:


Tinea: How do you mean surprising? Is it that he could potentially sign as a team leader elsewhere instead of a super-domestique at Sky?

You guys are aware Green Edge is hankering for a GC rider, right?

And considering the numerous GC riders Sky presently have, doesn't take a brain surgeon to figure out Gerry was keen on him...

Surprising.

Not really. Sky look like they are trying to develop more team leaders and Porte seems to be one of them.
Obviously Wiggo hasn't got that many years left so they want other options. There are rumours that Porte is going to be leader for the Vuelta.

I'm sure other teams would like to employ him too.
But would he get more money? Would he get better support for races he targets?

So actually, I'd have been surprised is he didn't stay.

I enjoy reading The Secret Pro.

"And speaking of new gear, some of our sponsors have been playing with prototypes and new product releases lately.
Unfortunately some of the new stuff is absolute crap."

I wonder if he's referring to 9070?
