Canci just had a bit over one hour or say about 30 min. for one round, it took me 36.5 minutes so I assume if I had to cover 51km's he would have been around 16 minutes faster than me .
Ed Clancy (olympic champ and pro) turned up for a few of our evening TTs earlier this season; thankfully i managed to avoid getting blown out the water by him, due to some very lucky starting times
Even so, he still got beaten...( by Andy Tennant, his Rapha teammate. 7/100 of a second seperated them)
You can see why at that level any advantage will be sought after; if thats the difference between winning and losing...
I watched Cancellara warming up, he just finished the Tour of Switzerland and I must say he is hungry for the olympics, he looks very lean, determined and strong and again he was riding mechanical DA.
I think the same thing just happened to me during this tt ( riding DA Di2)-as what happened to Canci on one of his WC rides, while I was having a sip from the water bottle I touched inadvertedly the button to put the chain from the big to the small chainring which made me almost fall of the bike as I was drinking, could also be a reason for him to choose mechanical besides the 75cm rule.
