ASO don't give a tinker's cuss about the sport of cyclng or anti-doping. ASO care about the promotion of their events.

IMO, the problem is not getting rid of the UCI because they...

A question to all who may know the answer or have an idea. In Aus, Cycling Aust. comes under the UCI, if they 'demise' would the organisations ( i assume it is the same in other countries also) just be left on thier own, to create their own rules? I suppose...

There is also a new test being done and is only part way through being completed. Go to the home page and scroll down a bit, you will find it.
Thanks for the working link. Greipel is not bad, all most came unstuck in the first sprint, seemed to get a bit lost with people around him. McEwen was nowhere to be seen and there was no other big sprintersd there either, we will see how he goes in the future i think. Otherwise he rode a good race, got himself in the right move on Saturday and took the sprint. As for Rigotto, perhaps just a shout would have sufficed rather than a headbut to the arm. I certainly don't mind...

Surely it isn't that important of a race to be doing stupid **** like that. Racing is racing i spose.

Re: 2008 TDU route - like others here, I would like to see the route contain some climbs. Having said that, I'm not familiar enough with Oz geography to suggest a modified route that could take in more climbs. As others have suggested here , I'd have to go for an overall Aussie winner and I think that...

If it's solid I'm good to go, the Helicoils will be stronger than the original aluminum threads. If the crank is hollow I'd like to know that there's enough material around the pedal thread area to hold the...
Find a decent hill climb, about 3-5 mins. Big gear, 60-70 RPM's and a heart rate about 85%. Maybe once a week, do it to often and you will probably find your cadence will go down on the rest of your rides. I like to do these followed with some real spinning on the down side. If there are no hilss then into a head wind standing, or if you are like me with very short hills do them more often.

The 10 speed 105 groupset is awesome, I came from ultegra 9 speed and thought I was going backwards but alas, the 10 speed is in a whole different league....front trims work better and rear shifting is smooth. I upgraded to...
