I must have been unlucky with the Durano! I got 3 punctures within a month or so, and I'm only commuting in Melbourne so the roads/paths aren't that bad. I've since put the Durano Plus on the back and the normal Durano on the front. I can tell that it's a bit heavier but if I don't get any flats who cares. Other than the punctures they are a great grippy tyre.

Anyone else as gobsmacked as I am that, in the land where they basically invented the internet *California*, the AMGEN website can be so utterly shite at producing stage results? I mean, WTF are they thinking?
I have checked their website in the morning, hours after the end of the race, and they still haven't put the results for that stage up. I'm sorry, but that is utter incompetence. I have had to look at and rely on wikipedia to get an idea of what has happened in the Top 10.
I will say one thing. I think the UK, and Europe, has embraced the internet as a source of information more than than the USA. Giro, TdF and Vuelta results go up quicker. FFS!

Protesting - as a way of showing support for something you believe in - arguably requires more effort and commitment than passively 'supporting' an entertainment event.
My thoughts too.
The Olympics is hugely lucrative and foremost, and it is being milked for every penny. Lots of people are unhappy about that. As an athlete, Colin may have a different perspective to us as observers.
I'm not sure disrupting an event is the best way to communicate such a message (I'd think it is more likely to upset your audience) but stop to consider the idea in general: if people are prevented from protesting "because it annoys some other people" then it would be a sad indictment of our times. Perhaps some of us have short memories. We haven't even been told what the protestors are planning so I see no point in foaming at the mouth about the inconvenience it might cause.
In these belt-tightening times of apparent economic hardship, is an £11bn sporting event really a great idea? Equally, I don't know how anyone could really believe that Coca-Cola, McDonalds, P&G et al care a jot for our health and fitness by associating their rotten junk food and petrochemical-filled hair and bodycare products with the world's top athletes.
As for Hinault, don't forget he was happy to lead a protest and stop a race when it suited him (mentioned in Richard Moore's book 'Slaying the Badger').

- Road Rage Ninja Woman 2: The Director's Cut1 year 30 weeks agoActually, he broke the law
Actually, he broke the law first, as he is clearly obstructing the highway, with malice aforethought. Whether that justifies being assaulted I wouldn't like to say, but it does make any assault understandable. We don't know if the people in the convoy of cars were just out for a Sunday drive or going to the deathbed of their dearly beloved parents or were getting to hospital for an emergency transplant. If there was someone on urgent business, then trying to prevent another person deliberately obstructing the Queen's highway could be seen as doing your public duty.
If the young lady is taken to court for assault, then he should also appear in court charged with obstructing the highway. Whether any assault was justified or not, he brought it upon himself by deliberately, consciously obstructing the highway, and has only himself to blame. Why he chose to do such a thing on a bicycle rather than use a motor vehicle is beyond me, but I would certainly concur with some of the pithier comments above.
If the young lady does end up in court, I'd happily contribute to her defence fund.

All it takes is for one vehicle coming through an amber from another direction and you're toast.
Besides, it's always possible to out accelerate a car at traffic lights.
The lights are there to protect you, other vehicles, and pedestrians crossing the road.
If you injure yourself or somebody else because you believe you're a special case and the lights don't apply to you, then you deserve any fine or other sanction that you may get if you're caught.
It's just not worth the risk to save a few paltry seconds in your life.
I typed a response and then read this one and thought there was no point! I agree with all of this. Well argued.

Dropped 46 seconds, was dropped on the descent 10km from the finish. If the peloton hadn't been slowed by the crash it could have been even worse.
For anyone else, being dropped on a descent would be a cause for embarrassment. Especially off a Cat 2 climb. But for a Schleck it is to be expected!
