The current rule does help heavier riders yet somehow we haven't had a TDF winner over 70kg since the 90s. Do we need to skew this sport even more towards the anorexics?thanks! it was not my thought to favour either.......just a logical response to a '1 size fits ALL
I'm not really sure what the true motivation for the rule is. If it's safety, that still doesn't mean Ganna needs a heavier bike than a climber. I've never seen anyone break a flyweight bike by pedaling it too hard. Bikes generally only break if you crash them. Riders hop back on their bikes and take off down mountain passes without so much as a cursory check for damage. So some minimal standard of sturdiness makes sense. But does a bike crashed by Ganna break measurably more often than a bike crashed by Pozzovivo?
