Hopefully the kit change will mean a lot of Garmin-Barracuda kit already made will not be sold and there can be a good sale

Good kit. Looks better in the mick-up than in the flesh though - why did they reduce the font sizes of Sharp and Garmin?

I'm not aware of the finances but why does Cervelo still get such prominence on side/back ?_?

It's a word-play that's just begging to be made!

Yeah, I wonder if Cervelo might be one of the few companies which aren't name-sponsor but still has such a prominence on a team's kit. From above that's basically what you recognize them by that big freaking .

a disaster for GS today
Tom D lost 9min, what happened?
When Farrar was involved in the crash, did they send two guys to pace him back? If so that is just plain stupid.

Guess they have to focus to protect Ryder as the only GC hope

So is this Tour for Garmin now just about Hesjedal?

Farrar is non-existant in the point race (Hesjedal is ahead of him). He doesn't look like he has a chance of winning a sprint. After Hesjedal, their next best GC rider is more then 2 minutes back already with VdV. They sit in 20th in the teams competition. They don't have a young rider.

Maybe let Danielson go in some breaks and chase a mountain jersey once the bigger climbs start? It just seems like their tour narrowed down to one option very fast.

probably some deal dating back to the merger, plus they do have an exclusive deal to use Cervelo bikes, so that must be worth something to Cervelo as well

I was thinking the same, when you compare it to where they where this time last year, I wonder what JV will say?

Danielson suffered a separated shoulder in one of the crashes and barely managed to finish.

No they didn't send back riders to help Farrar, that was a misreading by Harmon then repeated on the forum.

Hesjedal is their primary GC man now, although at least officially he was always supposed to be. It remains to be seen how well he can hold his form, but in theory he's capable of a good GC result.

VdV didn't lose so much time that he will cease to be protected quite yet. He'll be the GC fallback option.

Danielson will be a domestique now, assuming he recovers from the fall.

Martin was also extremely unlucky today. He was trapped behind a crash and then burned himself up trying to get VdV back to the front. It's a pity that this happened on a day when he could have been a contender, but probably a good thing that he lost a big chunk of time early. Given the parcours, he shouldn't really be trying for a GC result at all. At least now he should be let off the leash.

Farrar just has no form this year at all. God only knows what's up with him.

oh well last year is radioshack, guess this year is Garmin's turn. Hope things will not get worse in later stages.
