Yeah, I'm surprised not more people mentioned it. In Dutch media the focus is on his helmet and the fact he couldn't wear the team's supersonic time trial suit, however I think the bike had a bigger impact. Although I only noticed him on the tip of the saddle while climbing, not sure what it was like on the TT bike.A quick remark: I was watching on my telephone with bad internet, but I think I saw that Roglic's bike was being measured by the commissaires just before the start of the TT, and I remember they said something about the saddle being too close to the bottom bracket... So the team mechanic had to set back the saddle by some centimers?
Is this true? If so, I reckon this makes a BIG difference. Setback is the single most important parameter to get your legs going smoothly, especially in a TT. Too much setback than used to can easily result in building up much more lactic acid, less power and an overal uncomfortable feel on the TT bike.
I also see that Roglic was really on the tip of his (not looking very comfortable) saddle. Opinions appreciated (I can't find the little videoclip with his bike check, it was somewhere on twitter)!
