Obvious clash on the green and celeste but then the point of pro bikes is to promote the sponsors, not to make a design you or I'd want to ride.

Garmin-Sharp's bikes look the best, I think.

According to this article, the exchange is offered to all riders (amateurs included). It also says an exchange of hydraulic rim brakes is available at the same time/location. So I presume that means the issue with the hydraulic rim brakes has already been resolved.

No, you get your hydraulic levers and brakes replaced with mechanical ones as per the recall plan

The velonews article says the same thing, i.e. if you read past the first paragraph.

interesting to note that the only solution to mollema's rubber alergy is going without hoods and a bit of cork tape.
maybe BTP should make him carbon hoods for 9070 or that far and near or hudz make him a hypoallergenic pair.

In defense of Cav's "caloric reserves", maybe those reserves prove beneficial for temperature regulation this time of year. Check out how bundled up the spectator is.

Sram was a slow-responder to admitting their product was the problem.

Or maybe he's just wearing thick clothing. He's not at raceweight, perhaps, but 5 kg over raceweight, it's been pointed out by his manager, is no big deal. People are acting as if it's 10 or 15.

Regarding Mollemas allergy (surprisingly I have never heard about that, instead I heard he just preferred the slimmer feel without covers), shimano actually published this bit on their dealer site:
"Latex allergies are a serious condition that affects some cyclists. Latex allergy sufferers can be assured that Shimano ST lever hoods do not contain latex."
