This photo deserves its own thread I think. Unreal, I love it when they shoot these ones.

    Interesting, look closely and the new bars are much narrower, he's trying to be more aero.
  • Indeed narrower. It may also have to do with the fact they are only allowed to ride commercially available products now (or at least in the Olympics) and I don't think those lovely stealth bars are exactly available. Boardman has (or maybe will go) to UCI HQ to discuss what this actually means in reality.

    It might just be a different event that is the reason behind the different handle bars.

    If it's a flying 200m, then there's no real need to open up the chest a bit.

    Why "Oh Dear"

    The title of the thread is HOY, the photo and the OP says "this photo deserves its own thread" so I assumed all the photo's were going to be of Chris Hoy.
