Anyone knows where Savoldelli is ?

He used to comment on the motorbike on Rai3/RaiSport. I miss his famous "A Voi" :D


He's got fired; Rai got a big cut in the budget compared to previous years, as for example it seems there isn't either Bugno on the elicopter anymore, nor some other guys as well.

But don't worry, he got already a contract with Sky Italia.

I had this same road rash to my hands and you do not want to get that.
Took at least a week to do anything especially if your job does not entail using them for jobs like roofing, farming :lol:


Yeah, I've noticed in the last year or 2, no gloves has become quite fashionable even in races. I know they leave a freaky tan line, but they're not really there for grip, they're there for protection.

Chain drops are 99% of the time down to the rider not the equipment, be it Sram, Shimano or Campagnolo.

Nice to see VN have yet again failed to do their homework. Nibali has been on EPS virtually all season, only switching to mechanical in the last few days as he and several other Campagnolo riders use 80th anniversary kit. Velosnooze strike again!


Excuse me? This info came straight from the team. Do YOUR homework.

Their reasoning for using mechanical is not what I am querying. What I am criticising is this

Quote:
Record 11-speed mechanical on Nibali's machine. He runs mechanical on both his road and TT bikes, though many of his teammates use Campagnolo's EPS system.

Nibali has been on EPS almost exclusively all season. The only exceptions seem to be on his TT bike and during the last week for some bizarre reason. His main bike appears to be kitted out with 80th Anniversary kit, not his spare.

Was Navardauskas today on a R3 cervélo winning the stage or it was my imagination? R3 geometry seems better with that longer headtube and higher handlebar that Gerard Vroomens defends, in opposition to the hig handlebar drop, used by hesjedal.

Good for Tyler, he gets a lot of crap for no good reason. 5 hour energy did a great leadout for him too. ;)

Nice to see him get the Koala off his back, those things cling on pretty tight ;-)
Ps I think Goss needs some anti-Koala spray too, he's starting to smell a bit like Tyler (albeit with a monument to his name)

Yes, but he's not on EPS at all anymore. Hence, he runs mechanical on both is road and TT bikes. I fail to see the issue you have with that line. He switched prior to the Giro in order to eliminate a possible point of failure, and the team said so.

As for the 80th Anniversary kit, he only had some on a spare bike until after the rest day. He has since switched to it on his primary bike, but when that gallery was posted I was 100% correct.

So, don't call me out for not doing my homework.
