what a ride by Sagan. he can climb, he can descend. he sprints like hell and has so much confidence in the decisive moments.

IMO he's currently by far the most entertaining cyclist to watch

Honestly after so much debate about it, I've got to admit that although non-traditional, it certainly does not impair Ryder's ability to f*cking roll.

Based on one crash?

Did you miss how he kept it upright on stage 12 of the Giro? Nearly every other rider hit the deck.

Also didn't seem to hamper him winning it last year either.

Come on man :lol:

I think you misinterpreted what I said. Saying someone "can f*cking roll" is a quote from The Big Lebowski where they mention that a certain pedophile can roll aka can bowl really well. It is often also used in my area to reference if someone can ride really fast/really well. Hesjedal was really, really impressive the other day and was motoring along like an absolute beast. Same with L-B-L. Its a compliment.

Does anyone have a picture of Kashechkin riding the 200mm or whatever stem from this year? Can't find a pic of him on the bike and curious as to what it looks like.

Big news in the belgian newspaper today.
Gilbert complaining about the new Shimano Dura-Ace 9070 DI groupset.
He says Shimano did not enough testing.
According to Gilbert it was the reason why Evans lost his second place at the year's Giro d'Italia
(Uran got second and rides the same components) and it was the reason why Gilbert could not stay with the escape-groups in yesterdays' stage at the Tour de Suisse.

An belgian representative of Shimano responded saying Evons lost his second place because of ice and snow on his shifting system and cassette.

I just remembered that Team Sky is wining nearly every stage-race this season with the same group...strange :noidea:
