    Good signing there by Garmin Cannondale – Nice work Paddy

    • Bex

      I thought he was older than 24. He’s certainly dominated the NRS, will be following him with interest, I’d like to think Haas hasn’t had opportunities to show himself but he hasn’t progressed as much as I was expecting. Hope Garmin isn’t as negative an atmosphere as I imagine it is (secret pro post & lack of results from huge names).

    • Warwick

      Good to see its a two year contract too, hopefully enough time to settle in and establish himself.

    Is R.Dennis doing a Sagan type race, not winning anything (have to say this before TT) but always finishing on the podium.

    • Kieran Degan

      I was thinking the same thing. Obviosuly different style of rider. He has been in everything though. Sprint finishes, late breaks, domestique duties. I raved about him yesterday, and will continue to do so.

      Perhaps going for the GC?
      looks to be on great form

      • Jessy Vee

        I look at him VS Brookwalter and I see him as a better GC leader. But I haven’t looked at the route. He looked very strong on Stage 2, with Brookwalter sitting in the wheels before heading off in the final 200m (for a 6 second lead). I’m not entirely sure what BMC is planning. Seems odd to make Dennis do a lot of work early on when he’s probably the favourite for the ITT (helpful for GC?). Maybe the rest of the race route suits Brookwalter better?

        I DO know that Dennis and Porte are going to be SMASHING next year.

    Mars like temperatures at the Vuelta? “[On Mars, i]n winter, near the poles temperatures can get down to minus 195 degrees F (minus 125 degrees C). A summer day on Mars may get up to 70 degrees F (20 degrees C) near the equator, but at night the temperature can plummet to about minus 100 degrees F(minus 73 C).” (Source: Google)

      Google ruins the mystique of the bon vivant at full flight. Never let the truth interrupt a good tale- teach your kids this.

        Maybe they should have said “Venus”-like

        Where the pressure and temp and significantly higher than here.

        • Anon-mouse

          Sheesh the fun police just kill everything ey?

          Can’t CT’s even make a mildly amusing comment in a story without some nerd-burger shooting them down, “I’ve checked the galactical geotechnical temperature gauges and…blah blah”

        < –my unsettle’s relative makes 60$ an hour on the web…..despite the way that Diane `s remark is stunning, on thursday I got Ariel Atom from winning 8428$ this last month and to some degree more than 10,000$ last-month . it’s unmistakably the best-work Ive ever had . I really started four months/past and straight away made no under 80$, per-hour . take a gander at this site- >

    What’s the benefit of hydraulic shifting?! Just because it’s good for braking doesn’t say anything about its use for shifting.

    • velocite

      Well, hydraulic lines are lighter than cable and they don’t stretch. And unlike electronic, including wireless, they need no batteries. Details of a Rotor patent application were released recently which described a radically different architecture: the indexing was in the derailleurs, not the shifters. This means that adding extra shifters is a doddle, which is it is not with cable. I have heard that Rotor’s result is very light. I don’t know if that’s how the released product works, but that’s likely, I would have thought.

      Sounds pretty interesting to me.

      • Hamish Moffatt

        Do you mean multiple shifters, like on Di2? How would that work with hydraulics?

        • velocite

          There was a direct reference to this in the patent application. Because the indexing is in the derailleurs all that is required to shift a gear is to pump a bit of fluid, and it doesn’t matter from whence the pump came, so you can have as many ‘T’ or ‘Y’ junctions leading to as many levers as you need. Note that the levers are stateless, ie they don’t know what gear you’re in. That’s how I understand it anyhow.
