I know esthetics doesn't win races, but Jungels sure looks good on his TT bike.

Jungels' new Shiv looks very familiar to the previous Canyon Speedmax: slim tubes, in line stem, slim fork.....
Except for the seat tube rear wheel hug (and the chain):

Surely these are pushing the limits
Well, yeah.

If going to the limit helps, they're going to go to the limit.

Like the regular appearance of butchered saddles to meet the 5cm rule (until they banned butchered saddles)

Actually, I'd say that in comparison to other disciplines of cycling, TT's are one of the areas where you can usually get some idea of how fast someone will go based on how they look... and yes, Jungle Bob looks pretty good on a TT bike, even on his road bike.

Which is why pretty much all modern TT saddles are pre-butchered at the design phase. Crazy to think that less than 10 years ago this was one of the most popular TT bike saddles in the world...

What’s up with Viviani always abandoning his own lead out? Think he has much better chance if he had just followed Sabatini..

Yeah even he said he was losing his train ....not sure why though?

Now He has abandoned the Giro claiming he need to find himself or something

Next Caleb wins today & then abandons claiming this proves he is one of the best??

Sorry but I cannot agree
I know it is common for some sprinters to abandon when the road tilts upwards but... :noidea:

Definitely interesting given the sudden rise of Slovenians as elite climbers/GC riders. Maybe Slovenians are the new Colombians in more ways than one

Columbians are at it too, three have been suspended, they all came from the same team, there is also speculation about Bernal, that he never fractured his collarbone, but has been pulled out because he is being looked at, he was training a couple of days after his crash, on the road.
