He looks like he has what Steve Hogg would say is a "functionally short torso"!!! Short top tube in relation to his seat height. Never really noticed this when he was racing.

Looks pretty good though - must be off the gummy bears. Looks like a he's pretty good weight for a retired dude.

My thoughts exactly!

I tried to get one when they first came out. Now they just look aged, wish he'd update them a bit, would be a cool bike frame to have.

Glad to hear that Jan is doing good and all the past life/health issues are hopefully gone for good.

Impressive, if you mean he was beating Gilberto Simoni, who is just two yrs removed from high level pro competition at the Giro.

It makes it all more bitter that we got stolen the TdF´s 1998-2006 (& maybe more), while that american rider who was protected by UCI was allowed to ride on.

What a sad story.
