interpretation is up to you, but i'll give you two hints:
- watch the expression of the smileys face
- do a search for "McEwen" and "Haselbacher" :-)

Maybe Zabel can work out a deal with Gerolsteiner - help me win the Green from McEwen and Tmobile won't contest the German National Champ... ;)

I thought he was just on stock Campy Boras in that tour (before switching over to Lightweight/ADAs)...

All T-Mobile riders used Lightweights in all mountain stages of this year´s TdF. T-Mobile also had a few spare sets.

Andreas Klöden got the "L´Alpe d´Huez" wheelset we developed originally for Jan Ullrich. Ullrich rode a "standard" LW in the rear at the ITT.

The 26" (650c) L Alpe d´Huez wheelset which was built for Vino was not used in the ITT.

Georg Totschnig used another special set there and Christophe Moreau used a "standard" set.

Some sets we sold were not allowed to be used e.g. by Bettini, Simoni etc.

I hope this helps a little :wink:

The 16 spoke frontwheel is Jan´s own wheel. He bought it together with a rearwheel with a DA 7800 hub.

The 20 spoke he used in 2004 belongs to T-Mobile and was delivered together with a rearwheel with a DT-Swiss hub.

The 20 spoke from 2003 was delivered together with a rearwheel with a Campy Record hub and is Jan´s own set.

There was no ADA wheel used in the complete TdF 2004 and -as far as I know- not in the last few years.
