CSC learned their lesson from last year and they were all on boxed section rims.
The few riders with deep section rims were almost all involved in crashes. Take you conclusions....

carbon rims are getting stronger every year. deep dish rims were clearly the wrong choice.

zipp's finished a historice 4th for carbon tech...these look like 202 or 303..can't really tell

That's just stupid, why using Boras on those roads :?
For me it's a great fault of the mecano's of the team

Maybe they read WW and do all the wattage calculations based on superb wind tunnel data, after all, this is the only reason Cancellara won the Milano-San Remo. If only he had some Zipp dimples to help him beat Boonen. :smartass:
