belongs to Joe Cooper, not sure I would be keen to splash out on 2x new SRM's because I'd changed to a SRAM sponsored team either...


I'm a good mate and training partner of JC. Huon Genesys are on Shimano for 2014 so he'll be back on DA anyway. He's also personally sponsored by CeramicSpeed hence the sticker on the crankarm.

His spare bike was borrowed in an emergency swap by his (much taller) team mate Brenton Jones only a few km into the final stage of the Tour of Southland, hence the long seatpost:

"Just as the flag dropped, so did my rear derailleur which unfortunately decided to snap clean off my bike. I was less than one kilometre into the 160km stage and already found myself on the side of the road swapping pedals and changing seat heights onto the team’s only spare bike for this race."

they will also use Shimano wheels? (no more Zipps?)

that's why giacoppo and others are selling Zipps wheels on ebay....

That's right, I think they're on full Shimano - groupsets and wheels.

The kit will apparently have more of the Huon blue than this year's predominantly orange kit.

Would make sense seeing that Drapac have moved to zipp and SRAM for 2014 and beyond.

If Cancellara breaks the hour record then gets popped for prior doping offences does his hour record still stand?
