      @Przemyslaw Sliwinski Not at all. For example the winner of the TdF used rim brakes which are not hot at all and even though as a professional he did not do that by choice but because he got paid to use them it meant that all the luddites and old fogeys came in their real chamois-lined cycling shorts.

    #tech is the integrated cables which makes bikes look aerodynamic and fast. Downside though would be difficulty in installing, and maintenance 'cause you may need to disassemble and assemble the whole difficult routine until you get the standard of doing things.

    HeyHey Tech lads, quick one on this vid. I spotted Ganna’s stunning Pinarello TT bike had some funky crimping on the area around the rear brake calliper. Funky indeed. Definite aero gains but do other high end bikes have this? I’ve obviously seen the caliper covers you get on triathlon TT bikes. Perhaps one for #AskGCNTech.

    At around the video time of 2:24 of this video early on stating of a new aero helmet. Doesn't look like one at all. It more or less looks like the ones from the 1990's / 2000 style for the length and only has holes at the front. Not new at all. But whose to argue! That's only my opinion. look old school is new again.

How long João Almeida have the Rosa? You guys ned to be honesto with cycling and be real. By the way the Maglia of King of Mountain is from other Portuguese.

It is also not disruptive in the the way it is now used as a common euphemism--used by billionaires when they find new ways to concentrate streams of income away from small businesses to the billionaire owners of large corporations.

    In my opinion, Ganna should not be allowed to get a gold bike, only the olympic champion should be allowed to get a gold bike, and even though Cancellara doesn't race anymore, he should be tho only rider to get the privilage of a gold time trail bike and only Van Avermaet should be the only one on a gold road bike which is luckily still the case.

    10:11 Maglia Rosa - one of the very few oddities in the Italian language: There is no discernible 'g' sound in 'gli' similar to the essentially silent 'g' in the 'gn' as found in Campagnolo or Legnano (Italian gn = Spanish ñ = Portuguese nh). But to make things easier there are NO exceptions....ever.
