Speaking of which, does anyone know the status of the Johan "I never put anyone’s health at risk" Bruyneel USADA arbitration?
Feb. 18, 2013 Velonews article: Is Bruyneel still on the USADA burner? wrote:Bruyneel, according to USADA, was to appear at a hearing sometime before the end of 2012, though that never came to fruition. It’s unclear now where the Belgian’s case stands. When contacted late last week, a USADA spokesperson said the organization could not comment on ongoing cases.

Alright this was already posted. You can ignore. Thanks

Wasn't it Menchov?


Everything seems to point at Menchov indeed.

Lets not forget Cobo.

For some reason I think its Cobo, not Menchov. Not that Menchov is or was clean, but his performance was fairly sub-par, but consistent the past few years. Cobo shot out of obscurity into the limelight and then sunk back into nothingness.

If Cobo wasn't catch yet, I don't think he will be again. Menchov sound much more suspicious I think.
Happy Trails !!!

I am really hoping Valverde. I guess I just really don't like the guy!

FDJ consistently has the best kit IMO. They're also always exciting in the Tour- Pinot's win last year was awesome.

any suggestion as to why Cav's bike has zip ties around the toptube at the internal cabling ports. His race bike at the weekend was exactly the same.

Don't know how I feel about someone riding a bike with jersey colour theme before actually obtaining said jersey...

Its his 100th win edition bike its always been green.

They probably lost those insanely small screws that hold the cable stops in.
