Alright this was already posted. You can ignore. Thanks


I think I saw a poster on CN say that there must have been a ramp in front of the car because if you look at the video again, he never "bunny hops" the back wheel to get it up over the bumper/hood :noidea:

Irritates me that Bianchi don't do that anymore. Bring my nineties back!*

after reading this article

A new frame from Scott, promising “a new benchmark in weight and stiffness” according to the manufacturers

French company Look are holding a launch in Corsica this week, possibly to release a new frame to follow the Look 695

Lotto-Belisol bike sponsors Ridley will show off a successor to the Dean TT frameset

A new Reynolds wheelset is rumoured to be in the pipeline

Pinarello, fresh from the unveiling of two TT bikes – the Bolide and Sibilo – are said to have an aero road frame under wraps

They probably lost those insanely small screws that hold the cable stops in.


Thats fairly consistant mistake as its exactly the same as his race bike at the British Champs

Interested to see what Scott comes up with for 2014. Presumably the bike in question is the new Addict that was seen on a few team cars at the classics.

The Garmin 9 packs good punch. Would love to see everyone attack Sky. Nothing against Sky, just thought that it might be really fun to watch lol.

I never took drugs to improve my performance at any time. I will be willing to stick my finger into a polygraph test if anyone with big media pull wants to take issue. If you buy a signed poster now it will not be tarnished later. --Graeme Obree

Tip of the ramp can be seen from inside the car.

any suggestion as to why Cav's bike has zip ties around the toptube at the internal cabling ports. His race bike at the weekend was exactly the same.


In contrast the Look 695 Aerolight no cables to be seen except for the rear derailleur and integrated brakes

caley fretz's instagram had a picture of the "look 695 aerolight" being suspended from a helicopter flying into corsica. Panache indeed.

*edit, just saw the pic was posted as its own thread already.

Gunna have to disagree. I don't see Vaughter's claim that he has a team that can challenge Saxo Bank, Sky, Movistar, or Katusha for the GC top 5.

Jack Bauer (NZL) Domestique, still hasn't done much at this level
Tom Danielson (USA) hasn't been competitive since he stopped transfusing blood. Let's just be real here, he has no chance at doing much of anything
Rohan Dennis (AUS) young and strong, but nothing any GC team gives a crap about
Ryder Hesjedal (CAN) potential threat depending on recovery from his crash. Strong ride this year, but not as snappy as Froome, Contador, or the Rodriguez although he could take a stage win or get in a risky break
Daniel Martin (IRL) same as Hesjedal
David Millar (GBR) could grab a stage win and act as a very solid domestique for one of the others, but on his own isn't threatening
Ramunas Navardauskas (LIT) domestique, nothing to worry about
Andrew Talansky (USA) good performance in Paris-Nice, but demonstrated he's lacking some basic intelligence and maturity. Nothing for the GC to worry about
Christian Vande Velde (USA) same as Danielson
