TdF stage 11

Big Dog Tony Martin won the first ITT in yet another German stage win.

They were racing to this place:

Sure it’s pretty, but time trials are pretty dull, so lets fall back on some gear talk. Big Dog won pushing a 58 x 11 gear. Putting that into perspective, this would correspond to a 63 tooth big ring on my Viner, or a 74(!) tooth big ring on the Merida.

Of course there are “marginal gains” to be had and SKY have crunched the numbers…

Nothing new, here’s a secret weapon from yesteryear:

So really it’s a gear-talk day. Even the spectators were bored:

The race for second place continues..
