  • Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    I had a thought last night, or more accurately, in the hours before dawn, when my mind tends to drift over ideas lightly, and make connections between ideas of nominally disparate direction. What if Froome wins the Giro?

    Now that I feel like we've gotten some authentic transparency about Sky's TUE practices, if Froome wins the Giro, will I consider it a clean win?

    I have nothing real to go on, but it seems to me that once Sky gets outed for a questionable practice, they put it away, and discontinue use. Example, inhalergate. I would think if Froome had continued using inhalers, we would have heard something from the peloton. So, now Sky being outed for TUE abuse, will they reduce their reliance on this?

    We will have to see, but I fear that my Eeyore persona will rear his skeptical head come Giro-time.

    On the other hand, if Froome gets his rear cheeks handed to him, I think its a solid bet I'll be cheering. <sigh> Oh, for the days of impartiality . . .
