One could almost be mistaken for thinking that those blue bits were some sort of... fairing. Shhhh, don't tell the UCI.

^Agreed! Those blue (or golden on the 2nd picture) bits do not look structural to me (=fairing) but they will probably get away with it if they made the brake cover integrally part of the carbon frame structure. Which beckons the question... How on earth do you access the brakes!??? Have to say I do like the looks of it! Very cool indeed! 100% bling factor ;) :beerchug:

The way the brake covers are painted on that Pinarello make it easy to interpret them as fairings. Anyway, the bike looks sick....and expensive.

Brake fairings are UCI OK, as long as the assembled sections fall inside the envelopes allowed for the frame/forks.

The new Pina is UCI approved in only in the 550 size. So I would expect to see Wiggins only on it

I really don't see how Hesjedal has a chance of winning this one. I liked last year's Giro, but feel that was a one off performance never to be repeated- like Cadel's Tour win.
