Who's riding what bike in 2014?
As a lot of teams will disappear, a lot of bike manufacturers will be no longer in the Pro Tour peloton as well.

I heard some rumours Belkin will be riding Bianchi, Movistar on Canyon and Sky will stay on Pinarello.
Any other rumours or confirmation of sponsor deals?

It is so incredibly amazing to me how hypocrite this sport is. Or better say, how hypocritically, this sport is ruled.

1st.- Hesjedal doped, at the beginnign of his carrer. He was not olimpic mtb champion because he had a flat, otherwise he would have been olimpic champion due to doping.

2nd.- Autorities knew this, not by tests but by his confession. And still, not only he gets no ban, not even that joke of 6months ban out of season. Why? well, he is canadian, ne is not italian like ricco or diluca. he is from a diferent kind of country, like bjirne riis country, he is not french like jaja, or spanish like olano or contador. he is from a rich country like uk, where cycling is new source for money to develop.

3rd.- he confessed about ten years after he doped. After the statue of limitation. Statue that is applied to some, like riis, but not to others, like armstrong.

4th.- it seems like it's not important or not if you doped or not. the important thing now is if you confess, when you have no other chance, like hincapie, or landis, or hesjedal... now, if you do not confess by yourself, then you get a big ban. it doesnt matter if you doped or not. it matters if you tested positive and got busted. otherwise you will get away with it, no problem.

This sport is great. By sport i mean anybody who rides their bike for the pleasure it provides, but talking about the competition, at any levels, it sucks. It sucks because of doping, but it sucks so much more because of how it's been ruled. What a huge piece of shit this "sport" is...

Vaughters needs to fire RH quick if he and Cervelo are going to preserve what little credibility they have left.

The Canadian kept his little secret. He's completely corrupt. Of course he's not alone but he needs to be made an example of. It's definitely time for life bans in cycling, especially in light of the revelations re steroid use.

Not that it really changes things but it's a a bit erroneous to say RH would have been Olympic champ. He was on good form and it was at the start of the race so who knows but he was pretty much dropped from the front group that contained the podium.

:lol:

Don't think there's anything wrong with wanting to get rid of the poisoned generation once and for all. Lifetime bans is surely the only way to tackle this going forwards.
