No Race Radios

July 14, 2009

The other item that makes it VERY likely that Team Astanà will splinter is the ban on race radios for the next two days.

Without Bruyneel to keep the team in check, Contador and Lance are free to ride their own race.

Here’s what Bicycling Magazine had to say in a recent email to me…

Some Tour de France riders may feel a little groggy after yesterday’s rest, but they better stay sharp—they won’t have their team directors shouting instructions at them today through race radios.

Lance and Alberto better stay sharp.

I’m excited!
