Good to see Rory Sutherland getting another shot in Europe with Saxo, he is very capable of good results would be a nice addition to the supporting cast for Contador

Pft... I have 705 000 feet / 215 000 metres so far this year ;-)

I may be a joke though! Haha.

An actually intersting article over at velosnooze, or maybe it's just that I have lingering love for Devolder given that he was responsible for one of my greatests ever cycling betting coups (48-1 at the Ronde 2008).

http://velonews.competitor.com/2012/10/ ... why_240627

Remember when Armstrong was touting him for a TdF? :lol:

Linking wikipedia pages is fun! :)

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jockey
"The average weight for a jockey is around 115 lb (52 kg)"

Is there any pro bike rider with that weight? Even Purito is heavier than that.

Seen Phinney in person and he is definitely not 6 feet 5.

Cyclist stats often seem made up. I'm 6 foot 2 and TP is barely taller if at all. I also have a hard time believing weights as there is no way Hushovd weighed 15lbs more than I do.

How much longer is Farrar contracted for? Just wondering how long it'll take before they push him down a few pegs against competition where he can actually win.
