Curiously, Markus Eibegger decided to bust out his Footon-Servetto 2010 rain vest for old time’s sake. Iranian oil bucks not enough to equip the team with rain gear? (Photo via Tour de Taiwan Flickr)I’m also excited for the peloton to get off the Arabian Peninsula so we can see who’s underfunded their riders to the point that they bust out last year’s kit in the spring weather.
Also, I don’t think Ridley sells that bike any more.
I realize I’ve been slacking on #iasg. Hopefully I can catch up this evening.
The man’s day job needs to be bikes. Who ever hires him will never regret it.

Coggan takes down my WKO4 Power Model review.
Always disappointing to see science disappear. What’s ARC trying to hide?
WHAT’S ON YOUR WASHING LINE, FUCKTARDS?
The framing of the picture is too small for his six other GC tops.
Rode for an easy hour. Some pain in my left Achilles. Very odd. Starting to get cold.
After a short night’s sleep, somehow felt rested. Did three mostly easy hours with LT, HK, RM, TL, K? up Oak Creek and out onto part of Cherry Pie. Contested 3 or 4 sprints and lost them all :(
45 minutes of cyclocross racing at Camp Harlow. There was 1 good minute. The first thirty seconds, where I started in the front row, moved from sixth to third going into the barrier and run-up, and the last thirty second, when the guy in front of me lost his rear wheel in the turn 200 ft from the end, I made up a 100 ft gap, and then out-sprinted him to the line. The in-between 44 minutes, I moved from third to seventh (out of a 9 man field?).
