IAM not given a Vuelta wildcard.

Bit rough in my opinion. Cofidis selected instead...

From their 2011 annual report:
"Cofidis Spain sponsors the Junior Vuelta,
an original programme as part of the
Vuelta cycling race bringing together
education and cycling."

So I'd say Cofidis is not picked instead of IAM, it is just picked.

Meh, I have a hard time getting excited about another sugar daddy team.

In other news, I predict Bentacur is going to be a royal PITA in the Giro...in a good way!

Seeing Evans's bike next to the Shimano Neutral Service car brings back some bad memories (09 Vuelta was it?). I'm surprised he can still get near one of those blue cars without cursing!

So the Giro is on, but the question is, in which stage will Vande Velde brake a bone. Not that I wish him that, but it seams that in every Giro that he takes part he brake something...

Happy for Cavendish winning stage 1 close to my home town.

Anyone know what Specialized Saddle that is on Cav's bike? It looks kind of like a Toupe but quite thick?

Bouhani did some serious headbutting there. :lol:

New BMC, it looks completely similar to the previous model year no? Might be lighter, but doubt it.


SRAM seems to derail Cav train again though....
