My guess is all of the clothing manufacturers are scrambling to add these vortexes and other additions to the skin suits ahead of the final time trial.rhubroma said:That's got nothing to do with the issue I raised and Trek certainly won't be just "moving on," when there is still the Marsailles TT.rick james said:Doesn't matter anyway, UCI approved and folk need to move on from it
The point was if Contador (and the other GC guys) lost time because of not wearing these skinsuits, then the differnence in actual fitness may not be so great as it first appeared. If so, then there is hope for the mountains.
PS: If there is that much advantage gained, then all the teams should have access to the same kit, otherwise the results are falsified. The UCI should consider this in its ruling. It's not the bike, but the rider himself that's modified.
