You’re not the only one. I could make a fairly significant list of what I’d change.

For a top sprinter that Colnago is a big disadvantage.
A Concept would be better.

But that brake lever hood... Ohmy

^100%. But I’m still not betting on you to be ahead of Gaviria at the line. :)

Isn't that a 140 mm rear disc?

I'm sure it looks better in real life, but Campagnolo 12s disc looks aweful in pictures. The crankset just doesn't do it for me, the rear derailleurs have always looked a bit off in the EPS form, and those levers are massive. The levers are probably super comfortable, but they are easily the worst looking disc levers out of the big 3 for me.

Valverde's bike with new Campagnolo Super Record eps 12 speed.
If you look closely, and correct me if I'm wrong, he is still on the older version of the Bora wheels with black pads.
If you search for pictures of the Il Lombardia race 2018 he is also on the older Bora's with black pads.
Or maybe just a coincidence?

Gaviria bike looking sharp (although on Bora One).

*Campagnolo does not make Bora Ultra disc wheels
*Due to the angle of the picture those hoods look massive. In real life they suppose to be even a tiny little smaller than the current11spd eps disc hoods
*That crank just doesn't looknice on picture and will fit an aero bike better

*No carbon cage on the front derailleur?

And, Poof! There goes ASO's biggest chance for a non-Froome/Sky TDF victory. No way Bardet, Pinot, or Alaphilippe is going to beat Team Sky, regardless of the course.

Nice going, ASO.
Given the progression of Roglic, he gives hope. I don't think Froome will ever win another Tour de France. If he does so in July he will have been the oldest person to do so since Henri Pélissier in 1923 - i.e. he will be older than Cadel Evans when he won in 2011.
With Kruijswijk doing the TDF/Vuelta double it seems more likely we see Roglic in the Giro, also with the same advantages of TT km's as TD.

No 3 leaders to any race and most likely Valverde aims for Vuelta and just helps in Giro

I’ve never seen him on the “old” Boras. You’re not confusing the new WTO Boras with the Bora Ultras are you? Different wheels. One isn’t superseded by the other. And I’ve never noticed anyone running anything but the Campy Red pads on Boras.

Betting Landa is officially a lieutenant for both the Giro and the TdF. Obviously if he is outperforming Valverde 10 days into the Giro, Movistar will change its strategy.
