Nope - those Vortex Racer are the 2nd tier, one BOA and velcro strap job.

Cadel, Clarke etc are running the 2014 Vortex Pro, which I'd assume will be available some time this year...

No Pinarello Sibili for the Movistar team but the old Graal??? Why is that?
While team Sky was on the new Bolide?

Covered a few pages ago, Bolide is Sky only this year, they helped develop it.

As mentioned by Bruno, they should have been on the Sibili which is the bike for Movistar and everyone else

Regarding King; not wanting to state the obvious, but America isn't that popular in Europe at the moment. I'm not surprised that judge doesn't feel like bending the rules to accommodate. It's a shame though, being his first TdF.

I feel much better knowing that a couple of times he dipped as low as my FTP. Entering corners, no doubt.

As mentionned by Velonews , Vincente Tortajada, made the decision to time-cut King .He's the jury president , not the president of Europe.

What do you know about Europe ?

"It would be an interesting symbolism for the event on the occasion of the centenary edition, as Marseille is France's city with the biggest African influence."

not at all, africans in Marseille are mostly from north Africa and they don't care about the rest of Africa and they have no interrest in the tour de France.

Re: King and Thomas

While I find admirable the heroic feats of cyclists that ride on after crash and injury, a line have to be drawn.

How is possible that a rider is asked to, or let ride with a disabling injury like a broken pelvis or shoulder blade ?

that is simply not right, and spraying him an anesthetic while riding WTF ?

My nephew was a very competitive junior swimmer, butterfly specialist, ranked top 10.

He got a shoulder injury during a championship, his team coach, sprayed him the anesthetic and have him to keep swimming. After that he had a recurring shoulder injury that never healed completely and had to stop swimming entirely, he had to wait until his 20th anniversary to be able to receive reconstructive surgery because you can't do it while the junior is still growing.

off course those guys are pros and not growing anymore, but they are submitting them to efforts that could let them permanently disabled.

Off course it is done, because once the rider abandons, the team is left with one less. but why not have for example an official team extra rider, that should follow the tour and replace a team member who has to leave due to a disabling injury... not any injury BTW, for example not for a bad stomach or a flu, but yes for broken bones or concussion.

Such condescension. Vicenete Totajada is a Spaniard, a European. As am I.
