I admit to be happy that Wiggins is setting a new hour record but even more so that he left some room for others to challenge it.

I agree.  I started to like him after sky started screwing him over.

He looked like he was fighting with his gears about 10 seconds prior to that.


What a finish!  Really fun to watch.

This also happened, in the junior race, I guess the cobbles were rough on some bike parts

Steerer tube, not even a trek!

Just found out that a buddy of mine took that picture. Small world.

I read somewhere that his bike fell off the top of the car in a corner on the course during the TT (it was his backup bike during TT). So he is guessing perhaps that mishap may have compromised the steerer tube or something. Either way, that doesn't look comfortable.

He finished the race, at least he wasn't seriously hurt.

Peter Sagan is the most exciting, probably the best bike handler and the best bike racer ever!
