Does Castelli have a patent on the Gabba design or something? How have none of the other clothing manufacturers figured it out yet?

OPQS wears a "Gabba" from Vermarc called the Aquazero. Have one, it's really nice in the rain or anytime between 5-12C. Short sleeve, they make arm and leg warmers in the same fabric. Wish there were color options, black only.

So much for the new enforcement of the 'stay on the road' rule....

The pack used did the same though.

Is it fair to assume that once one pack began using the bike lanes next to the cobbles, this spread via radio and the other packs did it aswell?

Lol, Fabs stuck to the cobbles and dropped nearly everyone on the path during his chase.

Cancellara did some major work to get back, but he also initially got one hell of a push from his team car and simply shot past a whole bunch of riders..

Cancellara was far too strong today. Just unreal, really. Closed huge gaps in seconds.
Not a risky bet for next weekend.

I'm pretty sure no one cares about that BS "rule" every race I've seen this year (Omloop, KBK, MSR, & E3) the riders have been taking to cycle paths, sidewalks, parking lots, grass shoulders...

Cobbles were making the classics interesting and special. Now, these sections are totally unimportant and classics are just ordinary races.

Hasn't the bike lane rule now been slightly amended so they can use them, but only when it is safe to do so (when that is is at the discretion of the commissaires); pretty certain The Inner Ring had that update in one of there "Shorts" posts.
