Nino Schurter to ride Tour de Suisse & Tour de Romandie for Orica Green-Edge this year, will be very interesting to see how he gets on.

How anyone thinks that Pantani's story is unworthy of discussion, is just staggering and beyond me.


Pantani's story is as worthy of discussions as are Armstrong's, Ricco's, Landis', Rasmussen's, Ullrich's, Leipheimer's, Simeoni's, Virenque's, Zulle's, Garzelli's, Di Luca's, Millar's, Heras', Hondo's, Basso's Contador's, Scarponi's, Petacchi's, Vinokourov's.... and on and on and on.
there is a marked difference between Pantani's treatment and the rest.

I'm not defending his use of doping products but the events at the 99 Giro don't fully add up.

It's great catching dopers but the tests must be conducted correctly. Otherwise you run the risk of inadvertently convicting an innocent rider.

The circumstances around the test at Madonna di Campiglio stink to high heaven. I'm sure Pantani was doping. I'm not so sure his Hct was over THAT day.

The difference is that Pantanis story is tragic, the others, simply pathetic.

Sobering, I had some alu bars break on me today while out riding and ended up crashing into the other side of the road. Thankfully there was no oncoming traffic. I was lucky, Kristoff wasn't, very sad.

There but for the grace of God go I...

Cervelo introduced NEW product, they need to show it to the customers. Be sure Ryder is ridding it ONLY because of marketing, not because he finds it better than Rca. You ll see during season, they will come back to R5s and Rcas. :wink:


That honestly makes absolutely no sense at all. Why would Cervelo prefer that you buy a cheaper model and "force" Slipstream riders to ride a certain bike to try and achieve that goal? That's ridiculous. The 2014 R5 is also a new model so what you're saying doesn't make sense in that respect either. Most likely they're just trying out the new options under race conditions before they settle into a preference in the higher profile races.


See? Garmin having training camp......and what do You think Ryder is riding?
Yes, R5. (no TV coverage, no need to show S3 in action)

Looking forward to this. I think it had been reported quite some time ago (over a year from memory) but I don't think anything had been confirmed by Scott/OGE so it didn't seem like it was going to happen. Hopefully he'll be given a bit of freedom as he can be quite the showman...

RE; Millers Bike, in the cyclingnews video, at 1:30 "Well considering they made him a custom S5, the S3 is off the shelf. So there is nothing custom about it, it's something you can go to your local shop and purchase..."
