Um, I was joking. The last thing either of them should do is go back
to the track - except for the odd Six maybe - though the draw of
London 2012 might prove too much.

Dumbass,

I fixed your top-post for you.

There are a lot of sporting events where the winner is
inevitable partway through the competition. Like a running
race where someone pulls away halfway through, or a
baseball pennant race that isn't close. Or a 3 week
grand tour where somebody gets an insurmountable
lead after one time trial and a couple of mountain stages.

Did you think this year's Tour was less interesting than
this year's Giro? If you don't know what the Giro is,
you can make up an answer and get full credit, because
it's still July.

Thanks,
Fredmaster Ben

There is no "perfect" to be had here. As engineers say, everything is a
compromise. You have to pick you priorities.

As but one example, I'm sure a lot of pro's hate their TT position but,
as long as it doesn't get them injured, that's just tough luck for them
because performance comes before everything else when you're getting
paid for your performance.

Don't forget, either, that track bikes (your example of pursuiters) are
fixed gears and, as such, crank length has at least a somewhat different
meaning. I can tell you from personal experience that when I was
recovering from a serious back injury about 15 years ago, I could ride a
fixed gear but I couldn't ride a normal bike - mind you, I have no idea
if this is significant in the grand scheme of things but I can tell you
that things are different when you're on a track, and even when you're
on track-style equipment like a fixed gear on the road.

If I could sum up my advice to you in a word, it would be "relax" - your
quest to improve has to start with being able to perform safely and,
especially since, I assume, you're not doing this for a living, anything
that causes you back pain after a ride is simply an unacceptable
compromise, even if it helped you be faster. OTOH, if you find you
prefer to race criteriums with a different size of crank than you use
for long road races because it makes you go faster at those shorter
distances, well, that would be an example of an OK compromise in my
book. Just don't forget that there are tradeoffs in any choice of
equipment and it is not - I repeat _not_ - an exact science.

I think most fitters seek out a position that is is more dependent on
the riders current flexibility and strength than actual anatomical
limitations. Its a compromise of comfort and power, often in a single
session, so there's little incentive to prescribe strength and
flexibility exercises and evolve a position that is more aero, or uses
a longer crank for hills, for example.

I do like a local physio who is a former high performance rider and
does fittings. She looks more at strength and flexibility of the
individual than the knee over pedal type rules of thumb. Still, it's
kinda one shot deal, vs a plan to work towards an ideal.

This is all very interesting but I am not competetively active nor am
I likely to be. Yes, I'd prefer to go out for six hours on the bike
and get home and not have to worry about having to have a soak,
massage and bed rest to help recouperate. If I think objectively it
means I should look for the shortest available cranks off the shelf
with 9/16" pedal fitting, at a low price... and see what happens.

Supposedly I'll need smaller gears. Hmm, my ex-racing bike is
slightly undergeared as it is, but I doubt that a135mm BCD crankset
exists in the sort of length I am looking for (closer to 120mm than
170mm).

I'm too tired now to think much further at the minute but have been
considering how the rotation of position as a rider moves into the
hooks should move him forward on the saddle. It seems I could have
used bars with a greater reach and drop than I did. I favoured the
tight bends because my hands were secure over rough tracks, and race
circuits are not necessarily on the best roads.

One of the glorious moments in the TdF 2011.
I didn't see any punishment handed down by the org, either.

One dipshit holy-pants jerk gets his piehole punched. Looked like it
was a good strike, too.

I saw it on TV, and he was not the usual stupid runner, keeping his
distance from the riders. He reached out with the stethoscope and had
it in Contador's face. It was pretty ridiculous. Also, the punch looks
less violent in real-time than it does in the photo: more an attempt
to push the clown clear than to clean his clock.

Video here, but likely to disappear as soon as ASO notices:
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yhuHsW3pnPY

I think the non-punishment of Contador was appropriate.

One "naughty" nurse, one Smurfette. I can't account for the guy in the
background, but that's as likely to be an ill-timed "adjustment" as
anything else, or even an absentminded funny-looking hand placement.

Or he's, um, saluting the riders.

Looked too brief to be fined as "con collé", if I may second-guess the
race officials.
Good hard little jab,though; the head went back and he changed his
mind. Sorta like a decent jaw kick on a dog that forgets its
boundaries.
Nice back-to-bizness on Alberto's part.

dumbass,

you need to check your numbers.

http://www.profitguide.com/article/4640--the-amazing-race-cerv-eacute-lo-cycles--page1

http://www.jsonline.com/news/29538074.html

"The sponsorship helped power Cervélo's revenue from $806,000 in 1999
to $11.1 million by 2004, a five-year growth rate of 1,276%."

estimating a 20% (quite possibly on the low side) or so annual growth
rate give me something more like $35mm, in comparison treks revenues
are about $700mm

btw. vaughters thinks that protour teams should get a cut of the media
revenue. that implies to me that in order to receive revenue they
should be required to make an initial investment (ie. buy a
franchise). how much would a reasonable payout be so that team have
some stability? $5mm ?

right now the yield on 10-yr italian bonds is 5.5%, so to make $5mm
you need to invest $90mm. it's probably fair to say that the risk of
the italian govt. defaulting with 10 years is probably only a little
worse than protour cycling failing to pay it's obligations.

so the model that vaughters envisons would require an upfront
investment of at least $100mm (otherwise they are giving away money
for free) - had he considered that ?

Trek's revenues are closer to $800m than $50m. While it's not a public
company, that information is relatively common-knowledge and found in
press releases from the company.

As you said, Cervelo is no longer a title sponsor. I think we can
safely assume Garmin has deeper pockets.

http://lavamagazine.com/features/kona/bike-count#axzz1T9KLLD23

The 2010 Ironman bike count* found somewhere close to a million
dollars in Cervelos at the event. 468 bikes, more than 1/4 of the
total. USA Triathlon says they have 135k members, which is way higher
than I expected. So that argues that you're not crazy if you think
Cervelo has sold 30,000 bicycles just to American tri-geeks serious
enough to do at least a sprint Tri.

A little hand-waving suggests to me that their annual sales are
probably in the 10-50 thousand bikes, which is a big range, but only
one order of magnitude. Let's call that annual revenues in the $10-50
million range. I'm probably optimistic, though.

This profile of Trek says they're a company with revenues in the

I'd assume then that 10,000 bicycles and $10 million annual revenue is
closer to the truth than $50 million.

Either figure is probably not enough to be the sponsor of a ProTour
team. They run in the range of $10 million annual budgets, I think.
($6M for a cheap team?) Title sponsor is probably most of that cost. I
don't think Cervelo could spend so much of its annual revenues on a
ProTour sponsorship, and they said as much when they "merged" with
Garmin. But also, the Cervelo Test Team was a Pro Continental team,
not full ProTour.

Conclusions: CEO/DS Vaughters is running a business on the same
revenue-scale as Cervelo co-founders Vroomen and White, though a very
different sort of company (Garmin-Cervelo has, in a way, 30 customers
(its sponsors), and maybe 5 of those are really crucial to its
existence).

Pro cycling teams are really big fundraising entities, more or less
acting as conduits of sponsor money towards rider salaries and racing
expenses. It's probably one of those businesses where you think that
one thing (bike racing) matters, and in fact your day-to-day business
turns out to be sponsor seduction.

Dumbass, thanks for the corrections. I should have realized Trek's
numbers didn't pass the smell test.

But I'm pretty pleased that my extrapolations from the Kona bike count
pretty much nailed the size of Cervelo. Now to get my research
abilities up to the level of my guessing abilities.

Well...this is business, not fairness. I'd guess what Vaughters is
implying is that the pro riders are more important to the TdF than
whatever it is ASO does. I'm skeptical. The TdF is logistically
complex sporting event; you don't just book the arena and make sure
the players show up.

To put it another way, if Vaughters ever really pressed the point, I
think the ASO could just buy the Giro and the two other ProTour events
they don't own*, and start their own series. Which seems more
plausible:

1) ASO offers a buyout directly to all current ProTour riders. They
get reorganized into teams of the ASO's choosing (national teams
again? Why not?) and sent to do all the ASO races, plus whichever non-
ASO races want to pay a start fee to get the ASOTour riders (so MSR,
Het-Nieusblad, and the Tour de Suisse still have some reason to
exist). ASO sells the sponsorships using an internal-team model.

2) the teams band together and vow to organize their own races on team-
friendly terms, funded by...love? Bob Stapleton? Current sponsors who
barely keep the lights on for the $200mm worth of teams out there?

3) The UCI...HA HA HA HA HA HA!

Answering my own question, ProTour and Continental teams are like
mayflies. In the last decade we've seen teams fold up with great
regularity, sometimes in the middle of the season, sometimes nearly so
(Coast/Bianchi being the most high-profile case of a team getting
bailed out by a secondary sponsor, in that case so Jan could race the
Tour). They are, as I suggested before, built around a fussy agency
model. The Tour has both the money (TV$) and the power (those races),
but while I think the ASO could raise the capital to take over the
role of the teams, I don't think the teams could raise the capital to
take over the role of the ASO.

I guess this is another way of making your argument: the Tour isn't
going to give up something for nothing. The teams have no leverage and
relatively little money. Bike racing isn't really a pro sport, is it?

You're right! When he tweeted "Made it to Grenoble. Gonna be one helluva

There probably isn't a Grenoble in KS, but work with me here.

The presence of a Frenchman at the sharp end of the GC rankings is so
baffling that I believe all France is in a state of cognitive
dissonance. I imagine headlines like "FRENCHMAN FOURTH IN TOUR DE
FRANCE! Evans finishes first."

Actually, I was surprised that it was never once mentioned that
Jalabert had finished 4th in the Tour, his highest placing, especially
since he's the TV commentator. So that placing doesn't carry that much
weight, it isn't considered a career highlight for Moreau, and they
didn't mention Sean Kelly or Steve Bauer either, not even as evidence
that 4th is regularly obtainable by sprinters and classics riders.
