    Alan Tullett holds a commanding 61pt lead in the Forum's Scorum's Early Classics with just the new fangled Roma Maxima to come but the real superstar must be stevemarks who leads the purists AND is also Alan's closest challenger with that team!! Not bad in a set of races that has seen rosters change as often as Nick Clegg's policies!!

    stevemarks' standard team also improved one place to 5th in the Forum's Scorum's overall rankings leapfrogging livestrongnick and DrHeaton entered the top 10 at the expense of JAndrewHill.Wig_Billy didn't have Moser but still comfortably leads standard and purist divisions.

    RS80's about 1400-1500g, so I'd guess the aim with the 81s would be to improve the aerodynamics without adding weight? At a guess.

    TDF had a 1 kilometre prologue in 1988.

    Hell, if that had been more recent, it would almost have been worth signing up Chris Hoy and grabbing the maillot jaune for the day Wink

    Hi Andy, just saw this post. Got a 2nd hand front wheel from bashthebox, so hopefully won't need the ProLite Como tomorrow. Thanks for quick help offer, though, and for the find of new wheels on Ribble.

    Anything can happen in these races, not counting my chickens yet. Next race a lot more unpredictable having not been raced for a while. Happy to be leading a comp though, even a small one Smile
