I'm almost positive that front wheel is a Bontrager.

Re. maquisard

I'm not sure if he's just
a) anti-Sky
b) anti-British
c) anti-British riders riding for Sky
d) all of the above

He comes across as another artray or Liggero by trying to angle most discussions towards Sky and doping.

Very impressive performance by Tony Martin. Thought Wiggo was going to give him a run for his money today.

I was riding with italian wheels producer Marchisio today. He knows much about pro cycling and bike manufacturers, he's one of them. He told me that Murdoch, Sky, owns 51% of Pinarello

this news has come and gone before, some say it's true some say it's false

The front wheel looks quite the same as the aeolus 9 D3, he just wanted to go for a clean look i suppose :P

Looks like a fair bit of saddle setback for Cancellara?

Could be... but with the exception of a few stages, it seems that Cancellara hasn't been able to match der Panzer since he moved on to the Trek Speed Concept.
Could be age being a factor, with Tony much younger and Cancellara maturing like a fine wine, which makes it just a coincidence.
But it is something interesting to point out: what is the win/loss rate of Shiv vs. SC ?

Hi Prend, I've been a long time admirer of your eloquent posts, regardless of whether I agree with them or not. Regarding Tony Martin, I think he could've been any tt frame with any group & open wheels and still have won today. He's brilliant to watch, always looks like he's pootling along at a steady pace even though he's doing nearly 60km/hr!

Intersting that Tony's chainring is coloured in by a marker pen! Also that bottle on Cancellaras bike, is that a specific dimpled cover for it or do you think that is the actual bottle material?

I think both Horner and Froome are worthy of suspicion due to their performances this year. It is hypocritical in the extreme to allow a team or rider the benefit of the doubt based on their nationality or any other bias.

The difference in how they have chosen to handle that suspicion is marked. I am not going to judge Horner's power or bio passport data, I don't have the expertise. But I do expect that the likes of Ashenden will look at it and make public any concerns they might have. What is the problem with Nibali, Froome, Roche doing the same, why don't they...

- And for the record Airwise and I are indeed good friends and have shared many a good argument both on the bike and off. Mainly about power data and pacing! :D

What helmet was Wiggins wearing? It's not the usual Kask TT helmet he normally wears

British Cycling use their own helmet designs for track and road, available to buy (ahem) through UK Sport.

(I believe someone emailed them about price and availability last year and was quoted £3000 / 18mths lead time :P )

It's an FSA ring but SRAM is his component sponsor. SRAM doesn't make a 58t ring.

Here is a link to the bottle. The bottle itself is dimpled.
