By the way, what is that third sponsor logo on the back (below Sky and Pinarello, looks like a # with three stripes instead of two)?

    Team GB and Team Sky head coach Shane Sutton steps down from his position to take up a part time advisory role, reports The Daily Telegraph.

    "I'm working in a support role alongside Dave [Brailsford, team director] as an advisor and a troubleshooter," says Sutton. "We've worked together for a long time and we've got a good working relationship.

    "If there is an issue that the team has identified or an area that needs exploring then Dave will be able to bring me in and we can take a look at it."

    With so much change behind the scenes over the winter, will be interesting to see what effect, if any, it has on the road. 

    On a different note, with the season about to begin, I can't wait to see how Luke Rowe gets on this year - showed signs of his promise last year, and hopefully, he will get the chance to kick on this year and do something special

    Nice interview with Knees:

    I wonder if he doped before that though?

    In that L'Equipe 'score' in 2010 he had a high value, 7 or so.

    Good to see the hunger back. Reformed Wiggo was always more likely to have it back but there was always the danger 2013 could become 2010.

    With Kerrison :win I wouldn't want to put the double past them, but...no.. Bradley.. no.

    Darling (no connection to Alistair), what do you want to do when you grow up? I want to be the Prime Minister. When I become Prime Minister, I will make the country a superpower.


    "With Kerrison...  I wouldn't want to put the double past them"
    Wouldn't want to put it past them? Sorry, but anyone that does do that double can have his file marked.

    He can win the Giro; doubt Nibali's mint enough to beat a 2012 Wiggins. Basso, yes, Ivan there with Wiggins.

    Goodish piece
    Very good article. David Kinjah rung a bell, was in the early break of Melbourne commonwealths. ANd the Aussie kit then was good, compared to the sh*te now.

    Won't make any more insinuations (better off on other parts of the forum), Wiggins is a darn good rider, but not Giro tour double level. Don't think he's close.

    Giro/Tour Squad

    Is wiggins actually talking about winning both, or it not having been done in the modern age to win both, or is he talking about being competitive in both, which arguably hasnt been done for a fair while either.

    I think hes talking about Tim thinking its possible to be competative in post, and hes just feeding the press a bit of a worm to see if they bite.

    Be interesting to see the Paris Nice squad. If froome gets to ride that then the plan is still froome for the tour, if hes forced to follow wiggins around tirreno..

    The implication of this article is that Wiggins will skip both PN and TA and go from Oman to Cataluyna  :link

    As for the tour I think he is saying he wants to be a credible alternative to Froome if he should falter and by implication play a similar role to Froome in 2012.

    I don't know what he said, it's a video after all, and I thought it was a parody video judging by the dodgy background. And interpreting his statements, be it positive or negative, are a rather grating task.

    Being perfectly honest though, he's shown that he's not an Oxbridge educated orator (not many cyclists seem to be), and I certainly don't think he's got the tact to manipulate the media into following on from his quote. He'd certainly not have imploded/exploded (depending on the POV) if he'd had those traits. He's nowhere near Lance Armstrong in that regard.

    He's one of those sportsmen I'd rather see riding a time trial than listening to.
