Anyone have info on the new Diadora shoes worn by Evans and Intxausti in the Giro?

Looks pretty nice. Sorry if this has been covered before, hadn't seen any mention.

I beg to differ. These shoes clearly have to BOA style dials instead of the one on the Vortex Racer. The styling is obviously also different ...

The one's on Evans and Intxausti have a double boa set up that makes me think it is something different than the Vortex Racer which only have 1.

As a totally different point, has anyone seen any of the new Bont model's on the pro's yet? I know none of them will be racing the entry level Riot but I have yet to see any Vaypor+ or Zero2's so far. The shoe's are supposed to start coming out this month/June so find it curious that I haven't see any out yet.
Looks like I made a new 90 Proof friend

The Diadora aren't listed on their official website yet either...

It is a brand new model and they are meant to be launched after the tdf - well, here in Australia anyway...

Definitely Wiggins is not feeling well.

The last page of this thread is probably my favorite yet.

The comments about Farrar and then him winning - comedy. The koala pictures - HILARIOUS!

Also good that Mr. Fretz was able to join us at such an appropriate time :)

Oh what a finish, nail biter!

Chapeau to the break for collaborating until the death, just too much Quickstep and a great, long sprint from Cav.

The break slowed down and they had the chance to take to the line. You can't be watching each other when you only have a 15 second advantage and there is 3k to go.
