It always puzzles me how some riders, especially pros, manage to keep their toes warm when their other kit seems to suggest quite chilly conditions.
I know there are several inner booties and super-merino-wool socks or whatever, but they have never been sufficient in my case.

Yeah, I put on full shoe covers well before most of that stuff Wiggo has on. Maybe he misplaced them. :lol:

It seems as though it's a misquote or something and that's actually the amount he's already lost.

He would need to break his collarbone to shed some upper body weight

Ziplock plastic sandwich bags over your socks - the small kind that just cover half your foot.. I swear work great. I always had problems with cold toes since I moved from So Cal to Bend Oregon in 2005. When I raced a lot in the 90s I remembered a few of my buddies who traveled to Europe told me they used them so I said "why not" and it worked :lol:

Will be a different rider if he loses that much, won't win classics

Of course he has.

It's winter after all, he would become crazy otherwise.

I like that. Wonder if they will use Spesh or Campa cranks.
