Pozzovivo's crash a few days ago was caused by stuff falling out of his back pocket and getting jammed in the rear wheel as well. As if the weather is not already kicking everybody's ass, weird accidents keeps happening this Giro.

Samuel Sanchez is currently riding an LW rear wheel and a (?new?) black Orbea Orca frame during the mountain.

Betancur of Ag2R is riding a Forcus with a Campagnolo 80th anniversary group instead of his Campagnolo EPS components.
Got a feeling EPS is not so much wanted with pro's...?

The frame is apperently raw carbon; no clearcoat ( info from an euskaltel team rider, that is riding giro) :wink:

that's what i do. that's why i said it's boring, cause it's not interesting to watch at all. Even eurosport comentators, who are paid to be excited about it seem to be absolutely bored and robotic...
Happy Trails !!!

I think Sanchez also had the same helmet as Ag2r, with white and orange colours

Not boring but predictable. 2012 TdF was boring...

Isn't the stage winner always tested?

do you think wiggins will be left off of the tour de france roster? i don't think froome would want wiggins there given the comments wiggins has made plus his early departure from giro due to sickness. it will take at least 3 weeks to fully recover without training from a sickness (that pushes it to mid-june), which only leaves 2 weeks for mild training.

no more Pioneer power meter for Blanco (but garmin, as picture and Sep at Roubaix)

and no Srm at the Giro. they are using their standard bike computers (it's Pro who makes them?)
