  • 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.

    And then he de-retired. :S

    Seriously, 36 km of ITT in a GT?!
    That used to be the distance for the short ITT - on top of that there also used to be a long ITT and a TTT and/or prologue.
    A GT should be about the best rider in a variety of races and terrains, not about the best climber only.
    Meh.

    Some of the mountain stages, however, look quite good. Mont du Chat ... :cool
