there's a critique of Ali's TT position by Rich Melik of Freespeed on Tri247

https://www.tri247.com/triathlon-gear/bike-gear/alistair-brownlee-scott-plasma-bike-fit

it may be a promo shot however, so we'll get a better view when he races. and I have to say that Jonny's bike looks a tad small??

SRAM Etap too, wonder how much that went into the decision making process?

The Boardman bikes still feature prominently in their new Yorkshire Tea advert. Must be a bit annoying for Scott.

Have Boardman dropped out of sponsorship of triathletes generally, or was this a Brownlee decision. I know Skipper and Lucy Gossage both lost their bike sponsorship deals for this season also.

Not really sure what benefit Boardman Bikes would get from sponsoring low profile triathletes?

Looks like they are now sponsoring a pro bike team with ambitions which is probably a much bigger investment.

I read on a feature on Lucy Gossage that they'd dropped out of Long Distance sponsorship so that's why she and Skipper were on new gear.

In the PR interview with AB, sounded like the Scott move was decided by the Brownlees based on performance reasons but who knows the real reason - perhaps money talked (which is fair enough)?

I hope the Brownlee's get lots of money. They are super stars and deserve to be paid very well.

I've no idea how these types of deals work but seeing they have Seb Kienle and the olympic mtb champ on their payroll how much money was left?

Good publicity for Boardman, with this photo doing the rounds.



The "unhappy" cyclist is on the One Pro cycling team (which Boardman now sponsor), having been outsprinted in the CiCLE Classic at the weekend

Not sure how true it is, but the back story I heard to that photo was that Fleeman had told the One Pro Cycling guy that he wasn't going to sprint for the win (for whatever reason), but then he jumped him just before the line Rolling Eyes Wink

Why wouldn't he sprint? It's a race not a sportive FFS.

I don't know - maybe he told him he didn't have the legs to do a turn in the break, so he would sit in for 2nd place and let the guy doing all the work take the win?
