Quick-Step team training on Roval Alpinist CL wheels. See the different shape of the hub.
Also the world champion on an all white bike.

Yves Lampaert also said they were going to make big changes in equipment setup. For ParisRoubaix, he flatted 3 times last time.... Wonder what the 'changes' going to be.

Maybe Specialized will admit that they screwed up designing the Rapide/Alpinists in a way that couldn’t ensure their tubeless compatibility. 30mm tubeless with Vittoria Air Liner style inserts seems like the most reliable setup.

Totally missed the Lotto switch from Campagnolo to Shimano.
Im wondering if Caleb will have any complain about Shimano cassettes choice as it's basically very close choice to what he had before.

He doesn't like a 16t, so a 9200 11-34 should be ok.

Inserts, as used in mtb, good idea!

I am not at all surprised Nicole Frain won the Aussie Nats RR.

This is really amazing...I thought Robbie provided, by far, the best commentary and insight into the race. Hope he lands somewhere and makes more money doing it!

SBS sports Director Catherine Whelan is a crazy woke. Saw this happening with Tomo first. Whelan along with Bridie O'Donnel are working to rid SBS cycling of all white men regardless of their abilities. Equity and all that. Don't believe me, wait and see who replaces Robbie and Tomo.

Is Logan Owen on EF still? He’s posting a lot of pictures on social media in EF kit but I thought he wasn’t on their roster for this season?

I'm not buying into the hype around that team, but that kit is totally dope! Can't recall one I like more...

Agree, the team seems a little over hyped. But good to see people of colour in the sport and this team will break down barriers to others entering it. A very good thing.

And yes, great kit!
