It's obvious, that Radioshack (Craft) has massive issures with their TT-suits.
Klöden rode in a 2012 suit and Machado seems to have missed the kit fitting if you see the pleats on his sleeves.

It's so frustrating to be a RLT fa... eh support... eh person who kinda likes RLT. They surely have the most second and third places out of any team this season.

Also, isn't it funny how this thread predicted the 2013 name for the team, so long ago?

I agree. They have the most team GC wins since last year and the trend seems to be continuing this season. What is up with them?! I support them because they do have some very good riders and for the fact that they barely win.

It is frustrating to always come so close but not win, yet I see the results this season as a massive improvement compared to last year. Maybe I forgot some results but it seems to me that the team was virtually invisible after Machado's attack on Willunga Hill and until Cancellara won Strade Bianche and Horner's performance in Tirreno-Adriatico. This season they have gotten top placements at almost every race they did and often animated them. Last year their top riders were Voigt and Horner, the rest seemed to be unable to compete for wins. This year a lot of them have already showed very good physical condition.

Their problem is that they don't have a winner, besides Cancellara, and even he has been relegated to second in ITT's behind Tony Martin. They have also lost twice to Sagan and a couple times to the flying dutchmen at Blanco, who seem to dominate the early season.

But they have already collected some nice results in points, mountains and team competitions. Of course those are meaningless but I assume it always does some good to be allowed on the podium and receive a reward after a race, so at least it should be good for the morale of the team.

Can't belive this thread has been picked up yet.

The old one shows us once again that age does not matter when you train like a 22 yr old
