talking about ITTs... the new Factor bike isn't available yet, but apparently supposed to be a major improvement, according to Brändle in the Vorarlberger Zeitung today:

"10th place for Matthias Brändle in the UAE Tour time trial. The 32 year-old from Hohenemster only lost 38 seconds to Filippo Ganna on the 12 km course. 'Unfortunately the new time trial bike isn't ready yet, otherwise it could be 1.7 kph quicker. But I'm satisfied, the shape is good'."

"1.7 kph quicker" would move him up to 2nd

the new bike is still not ready, according to an article in Austrian media today. "For Brändle, already the first day could have resulted in a big moment. A short ITT is the absolute specialty of the former world record holder. "My new bike didn't get ready yet, the old one is just too slow", he sighs. But Brändle wants to chase success as an escapee: "In the final week two stages are suited to me".'

Bevin had some decent results recently, though, so maybe it's also a bit of a personal thing.
