Edvald Boasson Hagen is finishing his cooperation with his personal coach Fredrik Mohn. Team Sky will now be solely responsible for his training schedule with KA Arvesen as his main contact. I think this is about time and hopefully someone can do something so that his engine improves for the classics.

    That's interesting. Any reasons given? EBH is definitely an underperforming talent. This spring was really low-key for him and at this point in his career he needs to be doing better than that.

    I think Edvald needs to be much closer to the team generally as far as training goes. They relied the first two years on his talent being enough and to organise his own training, but its clearly not worked too well. He goes out to Mallorca but even then doesnt spend a huge amount of time at the camp, he seems to be in the Carlstrom plan of spending the winter having fun in the snow. Arvesen hopefully can get some organisation into the kid.

    Ryder Hesjedal revealed he winters in Maui, which seems similar to what happens when riders go to Mallorca and apart from 'preparation' in means they have a consistent level of weather to keep the training consistent and get the miles into the legs.

    on the weekend i was riding in richmond and saw a guy in full Sky kit, sky pinarello, helmet, everything. he was riding really smoothly, but we were going through traffic on flat ground so didn't really see how strong he was, but he was pretty skinny.

    his kit had BECKETT (or similar, possibly Duckett or somehing) and a union flag on the side.

    do sky sell personalised kit to fans or was this guy on the staff in some way?

    Employees who work for Sky (and friends/family) have their own cycling club 'Sky Velo' (they have a twitter account too) prolly was someone from there.

    yeh, sky velo all have customised shirts, but virtually all the staff have customised shirts as well, not just the team staff, but some office staff etc also have them.

    Bernie about the Giro

    Quote
    “At a certain point we were on the plane back home. I mean, I will never give up, if I’m out of time, I’m out of time. But it was tough. I told Cav twice just to keep thinking about Delilah.

    “Yesterday he was on his hands and knees, and then he crashed as well, he was tired.  “And I was like ‘that’s it, we’re not going to make it’. There were these long, long roads into a headwind and I was just giving it everything and I was like ‘just keep going.’ Then Jez came back and I was thinking ‘if he’s come back, that’s three of us going to go home.’

    “But Cav was recovering really well, he was on the wheel for 20k and then he started dropping me because I was empty. And I just killed myself trying to get through on the last part.”  “It was one of those Giro stages you just hate. All those small ramps [climbs], they were real bastards.

    “As soon as you lost contact with the bunch, it became a day that was never-ending.” 

    “We were drilling it. For the last 20k I couldn’t see any more. I don’t know what I had, a heat-stroke. Then I had an asthma attack afterwards and I was lying on the bus for 30 minutes. Even the team doctor asked me if I wanted to go home. It was just one of those miserable days.”

    BERNIE EISEL ON BATTLING TO FINISH WITH CAV, PHINNEY AND OTHERS, BEFORE THE TIME CUT AT YESTERDAY’S GIRO. THEY GOT IN WITH A MINUTE TO SPARE.

    There's a former "pro" called Matthew Beckett, races in Wales now so not sure where/how that places him in the USA but if the bloke on the left looks like the guy in the SKY kit then that's him :D

    EDIT: he just came 7th in the Welsh Road Race Champs 5 days ago, so can't be him then :D

    According to France's L'Equipe sports newspaper Team Sky will drop Pinarello next season and move over to Specialized bikes.

     The new contract is said to be worth 6 million euro.

    Reasonably, he doesnt usually say stuff with no foundation, but has got it wrong occasionally.

    But theres been rumours for about a year. He has trained with the team in the past, including at Tenerife, and its likely that he will be in the worlds squad.

    Personally, im dont think its a good move for JTL

    Agree to disagree, I think he's a good fit. It's the Colombians who seem out of place, and what's happened to Xandio this year? He was Sky's favourite domestique in 2011.
