Wow, a real 'me too' from Pina. At least with the Bollide they tried to carry their 'organic' design style (love it or hate it). Now they just built a bmc tr02-ish thing.

Back in 2010, Pinarello didn't supply the Graal to Caisse d'Epargne. This time around maybe Pinarello developed a similar looking bike in-house so they don't leave Movistar out until next season?

The bolide or what ever its called is co-developed with team sky. In an interview with their tech. manager he states that without a doubt its the fastest tt bike out there. But only with a certain combination with specific wheels, but does not mention which.

The Sibilo looks better than the Bolide, that's for sure.

And in other news, 41-year-old Davide Rebellin finishes a strong 3rd on the exceptionally challenging Italian Road Race Championship circuit.

he he...yes, and Rebellin could have won had he it played it more tactically w/o dragging Santaromita along back to Scarponi...

that said, not entirely "other news" from Ulrich, given Rebellin's own extensive ahem history...;-) these guys (a la Di Luca) are simply not credible...in my eyes

I watched the Dutch women's national road race championship. I thought it was pretty classy for Vos not to chase down her teammate, which I am certain she could have done. I always thought a national championship was more of a cutthroat, every (wo)man for him/herself kind of race.

Cynical? Or was he just stating the obvious?

If you design in the wind tunnel you must end up with near enough identical looking framesets eventually.

Glad the same can't be said for the skin suit and helmet :shock: Chapeau :lol:
