  • When you have to reach down on a descent to finger your chain back where it belongs you're either a shit mechanic or riding Campy. I guess he should be thankful that with his powerful ride his cranks didn't snap. [#campagfailotrolling](http://www.lfgss.com/search/?q=%23campagfailotrolling)

    Campag adds texture to a ride. Mine certainly did when the front mech decided it prefers to put the chain on a mysterious 'third ring' on a downhill

  • I'd missed that. I like that he ran him close on Sunday's finish just to remind him that he could have caught and dropped him.

  • Also welcome back France. Proof the "deux vitesse" days are over :P

    Actually with that kit please fuck off again

  • at least he doesn't have a special needs helmet like the Blanco rider behind

  • ha! true.

  • Hey, Mark Renshaw walked away from the biggest gravy train in cycling sport to carve his own path of mediocrity and mehh.

  • What is up with all these helmets from the early 90s?

  • Can't they design vents which are covered with a smooth surfaced permeable substance, so you get venting plus aero? Maybe taut goretex panels or something?

  • I think giro air attack looks cool when paired with the visor.

  • I don't think any of it looks cool. The whole sport looks like a fucking shit cartoon at the moment.

  • LOL bmmf

    I don't think you are the target demographic.

  • great P-N stage today, had everything I like in a flat stage, attack, crosswinds, break in peloton, the ante upped as the lead group tries to maintain the gap, desperation stakes in the group behind try to close, the race awash with tension with 50k to go.

    The insane pace at the front. How big is Gaudin? He's a beast, bigger than Clancy, now I understand why he won the prologue. The various sprint trains gather, the pace cranks up another notch then the taps are released, the sprint is on, the French win...again.

    And Renshaw chickened out of that gap. Finger wag.

  • White bar tape is so pro

  • Bouhanni has fallen and broken his teeth / face.... ouch.

    Out of the whole race apparently.

  • Actually with that kit please fuck off again ![](http://velonews.competitor.com/files/2013/03/bouhanni-wins-660x440.jpg)

    Looks like you're wish came true today.. Are you a wizard? That fall came out of nowhere for no reason..

  • And looked like it proper hurt. Lucky to keep some of his teeth.

  • fucking YAWN!

    Are you also waiting for a Campag groupset to successfully change gears?

  • at least he doesn't have a special needs helmet like the Blanco rider behind

    Leave Renshaw alone.. stackhats are mandatory where he comes from..

  • What *is* up with all these helmets from the early 90s?

    Aerodynamics > Style

    For once I'm actually thinking we need Cippo back to sort these dorks out.

  • ^^^^^Absolutely sickening face plant. Poor sod.

    The gravy train the ceased to exist when HTC Highroad pulled out?

    Going it alone ftw >>>>>>>>>>>> Permaleadout man

  • ^^^^^Absolutely sickening face plant. Poor sod.

    Just seen the video of it. Looks horrenous, pretty much landed directly on his face, maybe his shoulder / elbow took a bit of the weight. Let's hope he enjoys his meals through a straw.
