I think Contador had a chainguide and an unwired aerobar just for positioning. I can't imagine not having a spot for both arms. How can you remove a single bar form a dedicated TT bar anyhow?

Wow, I couldn't believe it either. I thought part of the bars broke of.
But he only has one aerobar and he got 9th. Don't know how comfortable this was.

Definitely lighter than a traditional "two aero bar" setup.

I think that's actually illegal now, besides, have you seen what it did to Tony's shorts, "gone in 60 seconds" are the words that come to mind

Didn't he just start using glue instead? Or at least, peeling the tape off but leaving all the tacky residue...

and what about the shaped "bulb" behind the cleat? He's wearing Sidis so that's something added.

As a dane I'm going for Valgren, or if a sprint in a mediumsized group, Asbjoern kragh Andersen. But Yates might be the best pick.

I guess it's taken a little while for the shoe to finally drop, but b/t Armstrong/UCI mess and Euro crisis, it finally has :-(

Onto the RR, Sunday....

I think that there will be a group of 4-5 2nd-ish tier riders (no disrepect at all) that will fight it out in a small sprint. This will happen because the Spanish and Colombians will be able to send a rider in any and every move (so many bullets) and then will mark behind like mad. Someone else will get lucky and end up in that group and might just win.
