Just curious. . .

Seems that the entire team is riding Mavic Cosmic Carbones during the flat stages except Lance. What wheel is he riding. . . Bontrager Race X-Lites? Is it because they ride in the wind and he doesn't?

Also, I saw that they all rode HED3 fronts and Mavic rears for the TTT. Someone said somewhere on the net that there were chainstay or seatstay clearance issues for the tight and turn-intense prologue so the team had abandoned their new HED3Ds for that stage, but they seemed to ride Mavic discs for the TTT as well. Any word on their acceptance of the HED3D?
