There are some new 9000 series arms coming out for the SRM (which are on Froome's bike). Not sure if the changes are purely cosmetic or not.

That just looks like a 7800 arm that's finished more like the 9000 arm

It does look that way. But maybe the extrusion is different.

It's one-two for Pinarello on the podium in Paris tomorrow. Plus 6 stage wins, it's been a good season for the manufacturer.

Whoa, how the hell did Talansky get up past Contador? I turned off the TV when I saw Froome attack Contador and drop him like he was going backwards

Who turns off the the TV in that moment? :noidea:

Actually, I saw Froome go up the road with Quintana and Rodriguez. Already knew Quintana was gonna win when he was conserving energy like that

Jens Voigt 13th place in polka dot. As an old guy, I enjoy seeing that.

Johan Brailsford at his best!

When Brailssford comes out with stuff like: "Either we get behind this lad or we don't," - what the hell is that supposed to mean?

I'm not sure I would care if he was doped to the gills. Double standard, yes! No testing for anyone over 40, see how that shakes things up. :)
