We saw the specialized sworks and giant tt bikes on Saturdays time trial stage, a few other things have caught my eye...the brand of bike that Cadel was riding in the tt, any more info on them? How many teams/riders are using the new fangled di2 stuff from shimano?

Cancellara's specialized is quite an interesting tt bike. I am aware there is a rule about the 'nose' of the bike protruding beyond the steerer crown, thats why specialized have not got a straight fork steerer on this bike, the forks are controlled right up at the front of the bike, the issue I have with it that this means there is a very large 'fairing' that comes from the back of the steerer...i thought this was banned?

I like how they got around the rules regarding space in front of the steerer though.
