If you consider that last year he won the Worlds as a Junior, this year as a first year U23. what can you expect next year?
By the way, he's riding for Cannondale.

Talking of Cannondale, Gazzetta dello Sport reported that Tinkoff would be the new main sponsor, budget going from 9 to 11 millions.


He will be riding for Cannondale from 2014.

Surprised about Cookson reaching out to Armstrong already. WADA (or was it USADA) has made pretty clear that once the sanction is in effect, it's not easily overthrown.

I was watching the Interbike recap on Universal Sports and they had come back from a commercial and the camera panned across some jerseys and skin suits. A skin suit for movistar had a Cannondale logo on the upper right chest area near the collarbone. Does anyone know if Cannondale is supplying them with bikes for 2014?

Doubt he's going to ease up on wada sanction, but it is important that the whole Armstrong take gets told. It's going to be very cringeworthy for cycling as a whole, but necessary. Let the bloodletting begin.

i think from live shots that's not a fairing, just fabric transition and a weird angle . i could be wrong, but i didn't notice anything 'peculiar'

Congrats to the Slovenian members of the board - and also to us Danes :) Good day for the small nations.

While watching the female pro race on the Italian channel they (the comentators)- were talking about that and said it's a sort of plastic insert to improve aero dinamics and it was being discussed whether it was legal or not and whether Martin would have won without it or not :noidea: They reckon he would have won anyway but the fairing may not be 100% legal.

It's on the triceps area, just above the elbow. In this pic, he is exhausted lying on his back after the finish. Didn't he do the same thing last year? :lol:

It just looks like the seam of the suit and the angle of the shot makes it look a little funky.

Very cool: Rapha-Condor steel bike no heavier than the pro Pinarellos I've seen on Cyclingnews:

All 16 of Katusha's bikes were stolen today. Luckily their service course is 2 hours away. That's more than just bad luck...
