Not a great Gila for Matt Lloyd I see. I was curious to see how he would go in the USA. I see cyclingnews has him as a dark horse for ToC...

I will keep an eye on french climber Clément Chevrier @BissellDevelopmentTeam. My long shot for a top 10 in the mountains :smartass:

Next season in World-Tour :smartass:

I actually thought the UCI banned this practice like every other minor innovation out there?

Maybe the chamois pad is red, and when the thin white suit gets wet with sweat, the color shows right through.

Otherwise that's gotta be glue/pine tar/adhesive applied to the outside of the suit. The shredded bottoms of the skinsuits shown on display still show the pad intact.

I suppose it's possible that he hit a bump that smashed his nuts just right to make them bleed, but I'd think an impact that'd do that would prevent you from continuing the ride, much less nearly winning....no matter how tough and strong he is.

I got a lump in my throat when I first saw that pic.

Why not just make a seat with sticky rubber like used on 5 10 shoes. Sandpaper seems like such a crude solution.

Rather than carrying a pump or CO2, just ride with Lemond ... as long as you don't get dropped that is. But he does weigh more than 21 g.

I don't want to say they look exactly the same as the spec s-works, but, well I don't know how to finish this sentence.

Belkin seem to be straying from the Pioneer power meter.

I'd like him more if he didn't seem to be trying so hard at being "weird"

I'm going to just believe that he's not 'trying' at all. He's just like that. lol

Chain tension seems to be a bit low. Maybe he's just riding over a bump, though.

He used to not purposely do specific things a few years back but over time has gravitated towards trying to be out there.
