    Having done both (athletics one to a much higher level) I'd say it's down to the increased impact forces and range of movement involved with track sprinting.

    Also remember that track athletes are much stronger/more powerful, exerting higher forces into those impacts. That and the larger "travel" for movements probably all combines for many more injuries...

    ...But then a cyclist crashes and breaks their collar bone for the 29th time and the time out is all level

    Not so much fucked up, just prioritised Richie, everyone knows if you want to perform for GC at the Tour, you don't do TdS for example

    That and a lot of people say he's a whiny little so and so, argumentative, not liked in the bunch, generally bit of a prick

    No worries man, actually, if you fancy a bit of a project, I've got some half black half silver ratty looking Planet X track cranks? can include a shimano ultegra bottom bracket with it for £45?

    I got halfway through taking the paint off and gave up, and have no time to finish now!

    Mismatched Sugino 75's? both 170mm but one is a slightly newer model and has so different graphics, luckily unless you're bikes behind a mirror, no one will ever notice ;)

    £80 posted if you're interested

    You give no weight to the claims off better alignment between cups = less creaking?

    Thoughts on this, for UT cranks in BBright?

    These seem to be the only thread together "cup" for it, and they generally seem to be the way to go for Hollowtech and GXP

    He generally likes cold conditions, considering Froome and Landa don't, and if I'm honest I don't think G is ever going to be a GT contender, all fingers point to the Giro.

    If I was Davey B:
    Poels and G do the Giro as "dual leaders", but everyone knows Poels has the better chance.
    They are then still in form for the Tour, where they join Froome and Landa, Froome is big boss and Landa is just domestique.
    Then Froome and Landa go to the Vuelta and do the two pronged attack thing, lots of sending Landa up the road in the mountains and letting Froome sit on, and if he gets away, hurragh, if he doesn't, Froome will take them in the TT

    Sammy Sanchez is still rocking his gold Sidi's so he could lend them to Greg and complete the look...
