Enough with the doping talk. Take it to the Clinic.

about disc brakes on road bikes, that's what a little italian wheels maker told me: Uci biggest sponsor is Shimano. Shimano still has to develop and promote a road disk brake. So Uci is still waiting to give the green light to disc brakes for road bikes.
As soon as Shimano gives the nod, the Uci will say yes to disc brakes for the road.

and it will not be for 2013

Wait till 2015 when the GT rights are up for renewal. Sky and BT are going to be fighting for anything and everything in the next few years. If Wiggo, Cav, Froomy and Co can keep up the wins expect one of them to pony up some big money (in cycling terms) for TV rights.

wut wut wut those appear to be some awesome news for portuguese development.

apparently the team will be licensed in portugal and has already hired antonio barbio, rafael reis and pedro paulinho (sergio's younger brother and current u23 champ) and amaro antunes is also rumored to be signed tho i think that will be harder as prio will prolly want to keep him with mestre leaving and vitorino retiring( iirc)

Reis had a disappointing year the u23 but he is only 19/20 so he is still young, i have big hopes for him
