Racers Discuss

Ryder Hesjedal reckons that “Miguel Martinez and Filip Meirhaeghe will be strong, and Roland Green will be hungry after a down year. Of course, there are all sorts of young riders to watch. I’m just really happy that I can go into the race as a contender. It wasn’t so long ago that I used to look up to all those guys…I really believe I can win the Olympics.”

Canadian rider Roland Green is looking for a big comeback this season and most of the American sites have run a story about it in some shape or form and Steve Peat has just married another rider. Read more.

Carbon has been making something of a comeback recently. Seems last years trade shows were dominated by the black stuff and you can now get pretty much every component made from it. Whilst I have to admit that I have always been sceptical of the use in some applications (like this new stem from Specialized), these new wheels from Reynolds, the Stratus DV carbon road wheels look fast standing still. How much? Well if you have to ask…
