Isn't indoor rowing just rowing but in winter when it's too cold to be in/on the water?


Actually, indoor rowing is its own sport.

They sent some guys to HK for a non-UCI event and then Pidcock posted a picture of him training in Mallorca I guess with full team Wiggins kit around October.
No more news after that.

I actually like that bmc kit. The sophos is clearly represented on the jersey without taking away the attention for BMC and TAG. Brilliant design i would say. This is a pro cycling team jersey. Dont compare with the likes of Rapha, La Passione, PNS, Cafe du Cyclist with stripes and lines everywhere..

And yet the designs by Luke Scheybeler (ex of Rapha) for Garmin Cervelo/Sharp/Barracuda, seemed to work quite harmoniously with numerous sponsors...? Particularly the Garmin Cervelo kit.

I’m surprised any of you find that BMC kit nice. But I like that you do. Variety is a good and healthy thing. The only kits I like in the peloton are FDJ (white kit is awesome imo) and the Belgian cobble masters and their blue kit.

usually pro cycling kits are hideous from a design perspective.

he mentioned interest in pursuing rowing once his cycling career closed back in 2012 and also put up a pic of him rowing in 2001.. not sure how following that is sad

Agree 100%. Kits are a rolling billboard meant to fulfill sponsor obligations. Great design is secondary.

It seems like a demotion and it's a sport based on an exercise machine. I'd have more respect if he was rowing on the water.

"Sky say Froome's salbutamol concentration was 2000ng/ml.

Diego Ulissi got a nine-month ban for 1920ng/ml in 2014.

Petacchi got a year for
1320ng/ml in 2007.

BUT Leonardo Piepoli got no ban for levels reportedly similar to Petacchi's in 2007."
