same with Wout Poels - the egg whisk cadence has gone and they are riding normal. Even Froome on the Zoncolan wasnt riding his usual egg beater cadence. Only explanation is the motor.


I think the gradients on Zoncolan might provide another explanation for you here. He was still up around 100rpm, way higher than anyone else.

Ever tried spinning a gear at that sort of cadence on 15-20% gradients?

Yeah, I've tried it, but my HR always goes up and my speed doesn't. Unlike Froome.

You're assuming that their goal is to find and punish motor use.

Another Landis.

I'll continue to watch the Spring Classics & Strade Bianchi.

The sport is dead.

I am mourning the death of the Grand Tours?

+ Yates? How does it feel to be out-doped?

Haha! Really? That's a thing again? Whatever O2 doping he's doing is working great.

I'm too lazy to look up Pantani and Armstrong spinning their way over mountains.

Disney is the parent company of ABC TV network, which on Tuesday dropped the rebooted '90s sitcom "Roseanne" amid a ferocious online backlash against its star.


How will they treat the Sky "stars" if they take over, I wonder. :D

Are we now saying Sky is racist? Or is this an attempt to prove they're on Tramadol by suggesting that explains Moscon?

Seems a little simpler than that to me. I think he just means disney doesn't like bad press and will act quickly upon it when it happens to them.

Sky will put their train into effect to ensure the GC. G will diplomatically not take the stage win, gifting it to a breakaway member (Navarro, Brambilla, etc.) or coming in, say, a respectable third or fourth on the GC uphill sprint behind Martin and Alaphilippe. G knows to mind his p's and q's.

Sky embracing the French fans before the real racing begins along with some standard issue lying :cool:

As he rode to pre-race sign-in, Rowe approached the fan, took the sign out of his hand, and laid it on the ground. Rowe didn’t say a word, pedaled away and soon returned to the team bus without further incident.

“The rider came over, quickly grabbed my placard and threw it down!” said Didier Bregardes, a fan from Lorient who was holding the sign.

At least two journalists witnessed the incident and confirmed it was Rowe, but he denied it when asked directly about it. He walked onto the Team Sky bus without comment as journalists pressed him for more detail.

“I don’t know what you mean,” Rowe said. “No, it wasn’t me.”

Actually it's the French Cycling fan who should go home - Be positive and support your favorite rider and team, instead of being negative and abusing another team.

That would be the "presumed altercation". :D
