Yes. I love discs but that descent was making me laugh, the squeal was louder than Eurosport commentators :lol:

Yes, but I also noticed him able to brake far later into turns and having next to no issues on the descent other than when Bernal had issues stopping and nearly took out his front wheel as he narrowly avoided hitting/going over an armco!

Pretty sure as the Astana rider on the ground came into Eiking's field of view, he over reacted and attempted to brake/slow down but in the process unweighted the front end, thus the front wheel hydroplanned and down he went.

Most probably due to weather forecast and braking.
He used c60 also in the wet Giau stage at this years Giro

Team GB tests some Campag equipment. I think that prototype only exists in tubular at the moment though. Looking forward to seeing it when it comes to clincher.
