I reckon his old size Medium Aeroad looked a heckuva lot better....
Pretty sure he was running only a -6 stem and still had the Acros headset cap on a 150mm headtube. He sure won a lot more on that set up!
edit- and oh, I've stood next to him (yes, you can touch me :P ) and he's the same height as me +/- 1cm and I'm 179cm.

u can actually* determine that he was +/- 1cm within your height just from a casual run in with him?

Regarding ladies racing after the men.
I can't recall any sort of event where the main event is not the last in the queue...
So ladies finishing later than men is maybe not a best idea.
Also, after the finish it's replays, podium, interviews, etc, so except for their last km, what else would we see?

But maybe it could work.


Perhaps start the women further up the road (since they have a shorter course) 30min before the men start at their starting point.
This will allow for podium time/interviews/photos for the women, give the fans excitement before the men come through, and so on.

I don't trust what any of the mags report for measurements. Its pretty easy to get stuff wrong if you're hasty.

P Gilbz was on a size larger BMC last year, but his position has never looked that great.

The author sounds a complete douchebag.

Can anyone explain the gloves worn my Wellens in this picture? http://www.cyclingnews.com/news/photos/ ... lle/250351

Also, looking though the rest of the gallery, the team seems to be reconing the couse on normal road tyres. Possibly because they just got in from some time on the road. Suggests to me that the course is pretty dry and not very tacky/muddy/whatever.

Probably neoprene, maybe to get the feel of them, maybe to catch the sweat and keep it off the bars? Not sure, but that is what they look like.

Set up for cross, lots of guys are running like that this year. Local scene, Adam Myerson is one right off the top of my head.

A pair of ordinary gloves or even fullfingered would do a better job of cathing sweat wouldn't they? I bet those gloves get quite nasty quite quickly :)

I don't get it do you think you're somehow clever? Or just a really big fan of terrible journalism?

I do think I'm pretty clever - thanks for noticing ;)


My intent was merely to point out the irony as you often come across just as biased and angry as the writer you were commenting on.

If you are riding in wet conditions neoprene is the best option. The idea is that if it's wet out your hands are going to be wet so why not use technology that ensures they will be warm. No matter what any company says it is a fact that your hands simply are going to be wet if it is raining out. Show me a goretex or similar 'hardshell' cycling glove that actually keeps your hands dry under significant precipitation.... I don't think they exist.

I use these when it's raining out which is all the time these days here in Vancouver. http://castelli-cycling.com/en/products/detail/208/
