Maybe they don't need a digital screen to tell them they feel like shit? :wink:

Perhaps purely based on the origin-story and the diversity in their ranks, I'm a fan of MTN-Qhubeka,

definitely my favorite team this year. Super cool to see and not too bad thus far if you check where their riders have been finishing, Ciolek's win, the team overall at Tour of Lankawi and quite a few top 20's. Hopefully they can get 1 or 2 more somewhat big name signings to guarantee more race invites.

Any way, Strade Biance is quite luke warm race for me. Nothing happens before the last 5 km, but for some reason mamil seem to like this race. Maybe I need to wait for another 10-15 years before I "get it".
Last 5kms? Looks like Moser read your post, as did Flecha and a few others. Attacking all the way from more than 40kms out, after a break went before halfway. What more do you want?

Internet notoriety?

Was a very entertaining race.

rough terrain? loose srm(?)

i saw GVA at omloop and his was also pointed down in a similar fashion


It has to do with the angle you look at it. Mine is similar because the LCD display gets "ghosted" if it's flat. See this all the time....;)

4.6w/kg isn't really earth shattering...


Article comments are worth reading, as Coggan steps in with some stats.

Haha, I like the "With all respect to Andy Coggan...."

The funny thing is if Coggan didnt step in I bet the argument/discussion would have gone on for several posts all with no-one agreeing.

Looks like he still believes that vo2 max correlates directly to aerobic performance. Oh to be outdated...

Is this acceptable behavior by the Danish pro track team?

How about the Belgian cycling team?

I don't know who they are but I like them better :lol:
