Has anyone ever actually seen someone wearing the Millar/Castelli CHPT III stuff out on the road?

We'll see how the next 6 months go. I would not be surprised if the Brits clear him/Sky and the book deals and other things start happening.

But if guilty he might get a bigger book deal.

Re Rapha...has anyone seen home do the flip? Perhaps he retired to work on it?

Tobias Ludvigsson's new Lapierre.
I really don't like the look of that frame. That weird triangle up at the seat tube and top tube junction really makes it ugly. :<

Paris Nice 2017 route is out.

A few interesting climbs in this year's addition. Weather permitting of course.

I predict some Schumacher-level things from this... Never good to take a pro athlete to something which includes risk of high-speed injury outside their own sport, especially skiing..
