Also, bad damage to neck in event of crash - adults have broken necks when the tail on aero helmets grabs, so not ideal for kids.

Let kids be kids I reckon. At least wait to she's 12 or something! :rolleyes: Look at the rest of those kids just happy to be riding their cute bikes and having some fun. Parents can just get so over the top and serious waay too soon IMO. And then its not about the kid anymore, its just all about them and their own big ego's.

Shit there'd actually be something really wrong with that kid if she didn't win considering her competition! :lol:
At the end of the day what have you proved?

How disapointed, and crushed that kid is going to be in a few years when the gear evens out a bit, and she stops always winning, and realises she's actually nothing special (she may be, but the law of averages suggests probably not).

not only that ... with all the advantages the kid has technology wise she still cheats. Definately across the line at the start. :)

:lol: Jens Voigt rides so fast during attacks, that he could circle the globe, hold his own wheel, and ride in his own draft. At least as long as he didn't try to drop himself. :lol:

650c. No photoshop. Details of the build here... http://www.kirkleebicycles.com/photo_gallery/ (t0p left: "custom 650"). Just a case of too much money and not much sense.

Ok bit of a dredge here - but can someone please explain the FUGLY loop of brake cable around the top tube?
[edit: And the additional brake lever on the tops? Poor wee thing can't reach her brake levers I'm guessing....]

Orica GreenEdge's Robbie McEwen also seemed to agree that the Tour was a hard race. The Australian will hang up his racing bike after today's stage and move into a role as technical advisor for his team. McEwen said that the race was a good choice as a final blow-out, "because I suffered so badly this week I don't think I"m going to miss it for some time to come."


I really liked this quote from Robbie McEwan. What a nice way to retire!

And that marks the end of a great career... how long do we have to wait until Sam Bewley is confirmed as McEwen's replacement at Green Edge?

Chapeau to McEwen for a long and storied career - can it really be 17 years since Antosh outsprinted him to win the Waikanae stage of the Tour of Wellington McEwen won for Giant-AIS?
