Isn't the stage winner always tested?


Yes, I am aware of testing protocol.....was making a sarcastic inference.

tomorrow changed stage: http://velonews.competitor.com/2013/05/ ... now_288374" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;
I'll be there on Tonale...if it's not raining (now it's, so it's snow up there). Too bad I took a day off to climb the Gavia, such a beautiful climb, but late May it's still too early for that, 3-4m of snow at the top.

Glad to see Evans, the great favourite, getting the maglia rosa (ejem... )..........

Pity Nibali won't be in the Tour with Contador and Froome.
Happy Trails !!!

Being the dork that I am. I like seeing equipment being used by pro teams that are not from their sponsor

Been discussed in the pro cycling thread and the assumption is ax lightness 24s. That is the wiggins/Uran wheelset right?

Was not expecting Uran or Evans to perform so crap in comparison to be honest. Pending crash/mechanical - which sportingly people would wait for Nibali anyway - this Giro is over and it's the minor placings now left to fight it out.

watch something else :lol:


Watch Tour of Belgium :mrgreen:


Certainly waiting for next round of XC mountain bike this weekend in the Chec Republic, Jaroslav Kulhavy, olimpic gold, is favourite. You can watch it live for free in red bull website. Comentator is rob warner and it's funny cause he is a downhiller, but he is funny and they have great commentator guest like Friskies and other great figures of mountainbiking.
Happy Trails !!!

Betancur of Ag2R is riding a Forcus with a Campagnolo 80th anniversary group instead of his Campagnolo EPS components.
Got a feeling EPS is not so much wanted with pro's...?


The frame is apperently raw carbon; no clearcoat ( info from an euskaltel team rider, that is riding giro) :wink:

Is that another AX front rim?

Is it fair to want to wait until the Giro is over until discussing the Tour?

It's like rocking up to someone's birthday and talking about another persons party that is a month later.

And a Lightweight rearwheels?

And Nibali rocking those Corima wheels...one of the most underestimated brands in carbon wheels if you ask me...
