Friday Schwag Grab: Cervelo Test Team signed postcards

by Dave Atkinson   March 13, 2009  

Cervelo test team signed cards

Up for grabs this week is a full set of signed postcards of the Cervelo Test Team riders, including Carlos Sastre, Thor Hushovd, Roger Hammond and Heinrich Haussler who's giving a good account of himself right now in the Paris-Nice. And loads more, there's about 20, we ran out of room on the pic so what you see is most, but not all, of what you get. Sastre's even signed his in gold, the big show-off.

Want 'em? all you have to do is comment on this post and you're in the draw. We'll pull a name out of the hat this time next week. The judge's etc etc

Well who wouldn't want those to put on the wall, great when trundling out the door on a winter ride to motivate you... plus riding Q-Rings to a TDF win made Sastre an innovator whilst lots scoffed off-round rings... as he says in Overcoming "its not easy"

I didn't realise Sastre rode off- round rings in the tour. But the idea isn't new, I have some shimano biopace eliptical rings from the late 80's or early 90's, and I think Dave Zabriskie blamed them for a slipped shift which made him crash in the TTT when he was in yellow a couple of years back.

They keep cropping up, and I understand the theory about eliminating the dead spot, but does anyone know if they've been proven to work?

(Yes I know Sastre won on the Alpe D'Huez, but that was down to the off- round objects resting on his saddle!)

Thanks Tony.

I get the PM content via gmail, but can't see it (or respond) via the Road.cc site...

The email went to Dave's @f-at address on Friday 20th, if that helps.

I noticed that Carlos Sastre uses 170mm cranks for road races but 165mm crank for TT races.

Normally, riders use longer crank in TT races than road races.

For examples, Andreas Klier, Heinrich Haussler and myself. (Are there a business cards at head of post?)

My body height is same as Carlos Sastre and my road racing bike setup is exactly same as Sastre.

But my TT bike uses 175mm cranks?

Any secret inside?
