Cycling’s a numbers game – stick to the numbers !?


They grabbed my attention as soon as I walked through the door of this well known US cycling services facility (to protect the innocent!).

In a sport where we all like to measure and compare every riding second, it immediately raises questions about the expertise of Pro cycling team management and their ability to choose the best team. Team composition becomes obvious…..

Clearly budgets can be slashed, there will be plasticizers in everyone’s meat (once the bags are regurgitated), and as the Iditarod experience shows, there will be no noticeable change in behaviour between competing teams……

The numbers make you think and the bike design challenges within  the UCI rules will be refreshing (well its nearly april 1!)
