Poll: Where oh where will Boonen be?

Perusing CN's article about Boonen's agent's comments about many teams being interested in him reminds me of the comments we had a couple weeks ago after Lefevere's stirring pep talk.  Lefevere's...

Hurting or sandbagging?

"I was suffering a little bit during the reconnaissance, especially on the cobbles but the second day after a crash is always the worst. I'm assuming it'll be all right by Sunday. It causes a bit more headaches in the build-up for Roubaix but without pain I'll be one of the main competitors," Boonen said.

Is Cancellara Beatable?

CN has some video clips asking the question if he's beatable (asked after E3), what his weaknesses are, and what it will take to beat him.  Summary responses were: Marc Sergeant – Omega Pharma...

Is it just me or does the O-Symetric chainring make the Pinerello look like it was involved in a collision that crumpled both front and rear? Via Bikradar (It's a gallery of MSR bikes, and I quite like Thor's Cérvelo...)

Wooden rims via Cycling Tips (This post is a year old...so sorry if you saw it ages ago.) Anyone ever ridden wooden rims? They are beautiful, but hadn't ever considered it as an option at all (of course at that price it's a luxury I am not sure I can afford)...

Jens! "What helps to win races is to be stronger than any other."

Some radio stuff in here relates to his interview on the topic and the quote is his response when asked if radios help him win from a break. Typical Jens!ness which we all love, right?

"A year ago, I was not this far along. Actually, everything is going as planned at the moment." and then there is.... "I would not recommend that my opponents just watch me though. If they do, they will lose, guaranteed." "Why can't I win those three races again?"

It’s a frightening thought thinking of Yatesy sitting in the bathtub by the candlelight whilst shaving his legs with a pink razor, but I can see the logic in it.

Updated: No we haven't lost Breschel for the classics...

I was so looking forward to him being on form this year to throw down in the classics! "I don't know how bad it is yet," he said. He will have it examined again by the doctor. "It is too early and difficult to predict anything about it right now. But it hurts, and it's damn annoying." Update: Breschel's knee problems not as serious as feared (Thanks Hansgruber)

Richmond, VA can't be liking this news.

"However, when you're trying to lift performance and you look at the staffing side, if you want experience of professional cycling you have to go back a long way to find people over 40 who haven't been tainted in some way by many of cycling's past problems."

"I read some of it. It got boring half-way through. I'll read the rest on a plane some time. I got about a third of the way in. It was just boring, the detail he was going into about Landis his background and his philosophy about life."

Way O/T Post here! Just wanted to share what it looks like here in the Northeast US right now. This shot was taken yesterday morning - after our latest storm left us another 16 inches of snow here at my house in Tolland, CT. That is my daughter's playfort - which has been cleared three times in three weeks. We're over 60 inches for the month and the snow is waste deep everywhere. Snow piles around the house and driveway range from 4-6 feet deep. I've shoveled my roof 3 times! Another storm is coming on Tuesday. Anyone else have snow shots?

How much will Piti cost in VDS 2012?

"I’ve been testing myself on the Sierra Espuña, which is the first part of the Collado Bermejo [near Murcia]. It’s a 9km climb and my best time is 17mins 15secs in the days before the 2005 Tour de France. At the end of 2010 I clocked under 17-30, so I was very close to my best times, which is a good sign looking to the future," he said.

Recall the Vail Hit & Run?

This is about the guy in Vail who hit & run the cyclist and was more concerned about his Mercedes then the guy he left for dead on the road. Recall there was concern that charging him might affect his ability to earn his gazillions... Well, his legal team is claiming, "An accident reconstructionist says new-car smell may have contributed to the accident." Pathetic is about all I can say.
