Of course he has.

It's winter after all, he would become crazy otherwise.


Yep, you can't ride a TDF every day. He has to be the skinniest winner on record. Maintaining that weight would probably make him very sick.

re: pic of wiggins.

sky on mavic wheels next year? (mavic may be looking for another team, as liquigas/cannondale now sponsored by vision - where did it all go so wrong with their gear sponsorship)

Sky have no wheel sponsor. Mavic supply British Cycling though so there's always spares lying around if needed for training.

Using your reasoning you must be expecting Assos to be clothing supplier also.

my question from a couple pages ago still stands, and despite the obvious shown in this picture [and yes vague tumblr picture]... i wonder if OPQS will adopt PRO and shimano components because of cav or stick with sram. i know cav has been using the sprint shifters and di2 since his highroad days so i wonder how he'd get on with the sram stuff. Also in the pic are look pedals which probably need the same "wider q" treatement as his old dura ace pedals.

has sram been confirmed to continued sponsorship of OPQS for 2013?

Although, I'm sure it is a Specialized integrated crank, wonder what crank that is too, looks like the non-drive side is painted white.

It's the S-works crank in gloss paint.

Was just a question. Why would wiggins use mavic at all for training on otherwise (resistance training?!) all of sky's press pics have shimano rims so presumably there is some extra money changing hands on top of their gruppo sponsorship

It's probably just what was around for him to use. Don't read too much into one photo. They use 11 speed shimano wheels but ave a choice of whatever they like really, especially for training.

Contador on dope cheats.

"For cycling, it should be zero tolerance, I express myself less certain but it is clear that there is no place for cheaters," the Spaniard explained.

:lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

"I would love to do the Tour obviously," he explained. "I missed it this year. But if I only find out two months before, then I won't [be there]. I need enough time to prepare. Otherwise I won't be a part of it."

:lol: :evil: :lol: :evil:

He only got busted with the smallest trace of clenbuterol. I mean they have let other athletes off in other sports found with a higher dosage . If we are playing buy the rules then Contador should not have even been charged it was such a small amount. I do agree that the only chance of stopping doping is a life ban.
