Will Ineos be the only WT team with rimbrakes?
Mmmm probably Jumbo Visma too? Sunweb? UAE?
Sunweb has S5 and TT bikes with discs, Jumbo used them already, UAE will ride mostly rim brakes.
yes, I think Ineos will be the only one
CCC: TCR AdvSL & TrinityTT (rim), Propel & Defy (disc)

Didn't realise TD is so narrow.. Only when standing next to some "normalish" racers does that standout. Legs like toothpicks..

Wout on the other hand.. Have some howitzers.

"But at least I will always have that Tour win.”

Thomas isn't going to win another Tour unless it features some long ITTs. The 2020 Tour is too hilly for him. It sounds perfect for Bernal though. I don't think Froome will return to his old form again.

Standing a bit behind a chonky Groenewegen doesn't help either.

Also Roglic looks like Marky Mark.

I'm surprised the photographer didn't put them in a Charlie's Angels pose. :D

First thing I did was look at Wout's right hip area. Do I detect a slight lump? Fingers crossed he comes back better then ever. Gotta like a guy who can win TT's and bunch sprints.

I wouldn’t worry about the lump. Dumoulin’s right leg has a similar lump higher up. Nobody is perfectly symmetrical. :)

He has a lot of scar tissue there:

Let's see how he goes next week, hopefully close to the front again but probably not expecting too much.
