A preview of team bikes is out in the July/August edition of Taiwan Cycle Sports. In the groupset stakes two years ago it was mainly Campagnolo Record, the rest being DuraAce. Last year SRAM Red made inroads. This year the count comes in with Campagnolo-8; Red-7; DA-7. An interesting balance acheived mostly at Campagnolo’s expense.
Anyhow, it’s always a fun time of year. The drama for me last year was Fabian Cancellara’s Stage 7 flat tire in the Pyrenees. To catch up to the Peloton he hit an average 90km/h on one decent.
Then he was broken on the climb and lost the Yellow Jersey to Nocentini. Not much fun for him.
Managed to view this through a mangled set of web links delivering a grainy images.
And, how about this: Love Your Bike: The complete guide to everyday cycling. Looks good.
