@ Wingnut: My point was that the cause of less predictable/more exciting racing is multi factorial and not explained solely by the proliferation (or alleged scarcity) of oxygen vector doping.

scored a pair of this a few years ago for a song, so cool. However, what's not cool is the screaming headache I got from the poor optics, ouch!

Is Rigoburto Uran riding ax lightness 24 rims (non embossed) with Tune Mag 150 Hubs? last year, wiggins used tune mag 150 hubs, so it would not surprise me that Sky are using German parts. http://velonews.competitor.com/files/2013/05/720.jpg

I own the Ax 24 rims with tune hubs and they are phenomenal. super strong.

Levi Leipheimer has "retired".

Pro cyclist Levi Leipheimer announces retirement

http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/05/news/levi-leipheimer-tells-hometown-paper-hes-retired-from-pro-cycling_287807

Not a whole lot of Levi loving in the comments.

Menchov's retirement looks to me like trying to beat out the bio passport violations if the article mentioned by the secret pro is true. Would the UCI still release them if he is retired?

Could be, or a prototype rim from someone else?

And he was only on the podium at '9', there's two, '10s' riding the Giro right now...

Edit- I thought Barredo was back with Blanco in the Giro but in fact it's Garate, so only 1, '10'. Yes, sorry, was talking about that infamous 'suspicious' list

L'Equipe's leaked UCI rider targetting scores, from 2010 I guess.

UCI document on how the targeting comes about
