What's going on?
With those wheels?
Have they reinforced the carbon frame with gold? Lead?
It's approximately what my time trial bike weighs. Not getting it.
Frame probably weighs about 2 kilos, like Petacchi's Colnago Extreme Power from a few years ago
some things aren't what they appear to be!

i'd say that TVG was as* consistent as the ones u listed, i dont like him though

He had GVA ahead, then GVA chasing, so Gilbert's behavior was consistent with team tactics. If they got caught it was fine with Gilbert: he has a teammate. That's the key question: "Is it okay with rider X if the break gets caught?" He was covering Sagan.
And the reason GVA was up the road was to enable exactly that. So it was excellent tactics by BMC. Sagan was just too brilliant, though. That was an amazing finish.
That was text book but this wasn't

You also have to take into concideration that this is a stagerace. If your captain is down the road, you don't help one of the main contenders to save more time. Same thing with Gilberts victory in Barcelona last year (Vuelta). He helped rodriguez widing the gap a bit, and then made him do all the work, because he was GC contender while Gilbert wasn't.

just kidding about the bully part. I dont like the way he interviews. He comes across a certain way that i dont particularly like. That's all really
and yea just to echo, sagan looked really comfy in brabantse. I like GVA, he was diggin so deep from 2km out.
