that's it. he did not ride ANY Mavic wheels with the exception of a rear disc in the first TT. The rest of the team rode Cosmic's and X Lite's.
So, the logical conclusion,TJeanloz

It logically follows that if Mavic wheels are no longer good enough for Lance, they're not good enough for me.

I'm off to order a set of Lightweights to replace the Ksyriums I bought two years ago...
LOL! Good one! nm.John_Brown
