mjduct, truth is a lot of youngsters will try these dangerous downhill maneuvers no matter the safety, and they will be inspired by these pros. Fining seems like a bad approach. I'm open to looking at it from a darwinian perspective as long as they don't drag down others with them.

omg, these days you gotta put warnings on everything. soon kids won't know fire can burn them unless there's big a$$ sign. this is a part of living - trying things. that's how you develop your senses and your skills. there will always be this 0,001% of population who try too much and end badly, but labeling everything unburdens people from thinking, and that's even more dangerous :smartass:

Putting cat in microwave oven because it was not forbidden in the manual seems to me ridiculous too (same as many other curious things people do and then argue about).

Because it is the UCI's job to make amateur riding safer. /sarcasm

Sean Kelly is off his rocker on this one.

There was a great little piece on the BBC about Beryl Burton. Well worth reading more about her passion for cycling and achievements on the bike if you get the chance. The sound clips of her speaking about riding and racing were really humble and inspirational. Loved hearing her tell the story of passing Mike McNamara who was himself on his way to breaking the 12 hour TT record.... and offering him a liquorice allsort on the way past! Not a bad way to become the only woman to have ever held a male cycling record time. It 's also pretty awesome that the UK seems to really be embracing the TDF start in Yorkshire :D

Sean Kelly made a few daring descents in his day. For example...

Not sure if anyone has noticed, but Rui Costa rode to victory aboard a new, lightweight Merida Reacto KOM.

And have to say, its looking very tidy.

No doubt if your going to invest $ into a oversized cage you'd want it to be able to handle 28+, but for the photo shoot only a 28 was used.

Pulley cages look like Berner's 15T pulleys that (allegedly) reduce chain friction.
I agree that it looks superb.

Costa wasn't using a normal crank, he was definitely using a PM.

The RD cage is the 'usual' Berner - which he also didn't seem to be using in the race, at least not on the climbing stages.
