it is not about the position :)

we will have to disagree there.... aerodynamics in my opinion play a major role in timetrialling!!

weight isnt that important unless its a mega hilly timetrial...

If I'm reading the Tour of Murcia web page correctly (Not very good at translating) it looks like Lance smoked Jan in the TT today.

i havent changed my mind
his position changed because of his fatter belly
and not because of his bike...
pros don't change their position after yours of experience!!!!
ullrich will be there at the highest level in the tour the france
without fat belly and in aero position
be sure!

the basics will stay the same
they'll test new bars, bikeparts, frames...
but the position of their body wont change a lot
ullrich will look much more aero when he isnt as fat as now! whitout changing his position... you'll see
