Stages like yesterday makes me wonder why no-one brings a cross bike, changes bikes at the top of the last descent and cleans up. Looked like Bambi on rollerskates out there yesterday.

Seriously?? I download torrents and watch them the next day or so too, but I don't visit this thread before I do.

You do realise that this thread is all about pro cycling, right? (the clue is in the title) What were you expecting to read about, during one of the biggest pro races of the year?

With the changing conditions @ Giro, watch out for Phinney.

How will he handle the cleat molded into the shoe part of this? I feel like the range of people's cleat positions and foot variations would make this really tricky to handle if he makes them just like the photo's show. Interesting to see how it turns out
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

maybe the type of carbon is re-moldable all over. So he'll have some guidelines like bont on exact cm width and length to start

The ultimate weight weenie shoe would be molded over your foot on the start line, then cut away after the finish.

Nibali putting in a very good time in the TT, he has got to be pleased to only loose 11 seconds to Wiggo on a TT that length!

If wiggins have issues in every stage, he may be lucky to finish the giro in the top ten. Hesjedal out though. Nibali seems strong, he may win the giro due to the mountain stages... Wiggo still there though, all depends on his material apparently.
Happy Trails !!!

Yes, but it wasn't a flat and straight tt though.

Maybe we will see Wiggins attack in the mountains now? A man can dream, but I suspect it will be more careful pacing with the hope that the others blow like in the last mountain stage of last years tour...
