Most of us have gears we never use

The last Grand Tour of this year is over. It was a race that kept fans guessing almost until the end. No doubt the most thrilling race for fans and  far the best tour of the year .

Horner wins the Vuelta at nearly 42 year old. And then the media suspects that his performance is too good to be true- How does a guy who has no big victories in the bag just come back after 6-month knee injury and manage to win a Grand Tour?  This old cannot win a Grand Tour without doping, they say. And the funniest thing is that everyone is an armchair expert now analyzing data and coming up with their own suspicions. Gotta love the show!
I hope that people in peloton saying Horner is a deserving winner are right …otherwise we have to wait 5-10 years until someones lips are loosen with time …or maybe the science of testing surprises, even though it wasn’t drug testing that brought Lance down.

Love for cycling is like the notion of romantic- deep down we want to believe all of the magical feelings are true.

What do you think? 

Had to skip few stages, but then a brief visit to Copenhagen last Friday paid off well- got 2 mins to say hi to my sister.

It was an incredible breakthrough, and one that steered Rolex towards the fame it rolex replica sale has today, but the watch itself only made up half of the ingredients needed for the success Wilsdorf aimed for. The other replica watches uk half came from the business part of his brain, the tactician that knew when, where and how to promote his brand. Making the most of the Oyster's cross-Channel journey, Wilsdorf took out a front-page rolex replica sale advertorial in the Daily Mail, praising the incredible feat to an audience of hundreds of thousands. To cap it off, he had his replica watches retailers display the Oyster submerged in a fish tank, a demonstration that wowed crowds with its audacity. In 1952, French special forces commander Captain Bob Maloubier designed a watch for his elite divers, which rival watchmaker Blancpain agreed to build. As well as rolex replica uk being suitably water resistant, it had a dial design that was easy to read in low light and a rotating bezel that could be used as a countdown timer.
