Any rumors on which bikes will CCC be next year?
GIANT it seems

Cervelo for Sunweb
BMC for DiData
It makes sense

Valgren Andersen riding around 30km of the last Binck Bank tour stage on a neutral service bike, don't see that too often.

Bleh I'm pretty sick of the Wiggo shaming, especially Joe-nobodies directly trolling him on the internet. A one off of triamcinolone is no where near the same ball park as blood infusions and the like. Coincidentally, my partner (non-cyclist) recently got prescribed triamcinolone to treat allergic skin rash, it's not a super rare thing that gives you 100 watts out of the blue. The same people who are doing this haven't even looked at the actual TUE document where it references endoscopy and RAST tests.. ugh.

I love that he engages the trolls- always on the troll’s level as well. So good!

Why waste your energy being disgusted by it when you can just ignore it? :noidea:

Yes, I especially like the way she manages to cross the line first in various "finale" scenarios, even ousprinting the "big girls" in bunch sprints.

I think it looks good... at least as far as US champs jerseys go. I rarely think the US champ jersey looks good. I just think its a lot going on in terms of colors, stars, stripes etc to have to blend in with team jerseys and make look good. The countries that have simpler flags always seem to have better looking national champs jerseys IMO.

It needs to stand out. The stripes are not thick enough and the blue stars part has no contrast with the sleeves so it gets lost.. Jeremy Powers 2016 cross national champ Rapha jersey is the best I think. The overall design on Rosskopf's skinsuit is close but the obnoxious sponsor logos get in the way and there's are no solid, segmented sections

Micro stars on the sleeves, top half solid blue, bottom half stripes all the way around. Keep it simple and classic.

Don't forget she's like 5' and 110 lbs ( maybe a little more ...?). You can't fit many thick stripes on such a tiny body :lol: (seriously, the women think about their "Lines" you can be shure about this ;) ). "Dudes" cyclists are more shaped like... hem! ...actual flags ;)!
