If anyone's desperate to 'share' the experience, there's ten tonnes of chat on the cool kids' forum.
Fair dinkum, some of these crunts post so much that they wouldn't have time to look at the telly.
I think Boonen was persuaded to switch to playing poker than to poking hookers and doing blow. He face and actions "looked" knackered on the Paterberg but his body language said otherwise - likewise in the run in to the finish he was always straight on Ballans wheel and had an amazingly fluid pedalling style like he was almost soft pedalling it... Of course 'almost' is relative. 26+ mph on lumpy roads after 240km isn't softcocking it...
Shame about Cancellara and his dicked off collar bone. Nice effort from Sagan to try and bridge the gap - give it a few years and about another 100,000km in the legs he'll likely be up there with the likes of Boonen and Cancellara.
I remember reading somewhere that they're based on the KASK Vertigo helmet but they're a non-removable alternate plastic shell which gets them around the "helmet cover" rule. If they need more cooling they have to go back to the team car for a different helmet.
When it's only 9C outside you really don't need a million vents...
