Sure, Peter Sagan got kicked up of the Tour and Mark Cavendish crashed out … and that all happened after Alejandro Valverde’s catastrophic exit during the opening time trial. But somewhere in all that carnage, history was made: Marcel Kittel won a stage of the Tour de France on a disc-brake equipped bike. And Team Sky stirred controversy with — dimples?
Tech editor Dan Cavallari and senior editor Caley Fretz talk tech from the first few stages of the Tour de France from Luxembourg.
We want to hear from you. What do you think of Sky’s dimples? How about disc brakes? Will the peloton embrace them now that a stage has been won on a disc-equipped bike? Let us know on Facebook, or tweet VeloNews (@velonews) or at Dan Cavallari (@browntiedan).
