  • I empathise with Boucher, it’s a clearly a catch-22 situation. Then again, being sent home for disobeying team orders isn’t going to be a highly desirable employability trait.

    • Those comments from the team are bs. Riders are paid to follow orders. People complain about power meters taking some of the flair out of racing, team radios are worse.

    Haha. Got a few lols out of that sickest edit video.

    Something… different… Roller bladers

    Even though they end up recycling jokes, I’m an absolute sucker for a good skewering of cycling culture.

      “WE NEED MORE ROOST !!!” best ever call.

    More importantly, IFHT also made this much-needed PSA:

    I liked that Boardman video about overtaking cyclists. Good message for car drivers. But for cyclists watching I think it glossed over the two abreast issue. While 2 abreast is legal, and I certainly would not want that to change, we should not do it when to do so means holding up the traffic. Not sure how that could be framed in the road rules, but I don’t like seeing a line of cars on a two lane road tooling along behind a couple of cyclists.

      The thing that Boardman doesn’t cover is how to overtake a long line of bikes on a 2 lane road – maybe they’re in 1s, 2s, 3s, 4s – it’s practically impossible. Something I’ve come across over here – the UK – a lot. Often find it easiest just to turn around and go find another route. Anything else either causes upset to the cars behind or the cyclists being overtaken.

        Agreed. That sequence with the cars passing the group of cyclists reminded me of another scenario that only happens that way in movies: when the hero/heroine always gets to park directly in front of the major city building they need to visit.

      Agree velocite,Narrow 2 lane roads with lots of bends are not a good place to ride two abreast even if its legal.
      The inside rider also may have to swerve out to avoid a road obstacle causing the outer rider to swerve in response creating more problems for other road traffic.Best to use common sense when out for a spin with friends.

    Re. Disc brakes in the peleton. Surprise, surprise no issues at all to report! Thank God for innovation.

  • Leroy

    What happened to the concern about disc brakes in crashes? All clear now?
