Whats the argument beyond he hasn't taken photos inside a BAE systems wind tunnel? None of the data looks odd and it's not like he's hawking aero components

Without having read the weightweenie stuff directly, I'm not gonna draw any conclusions from this thread with pretty divide opinions:
https://www.reddit.com/r/Velo/comments/cs1qlf/hambini_aerodynamic_masterclass_bike_wheels/
but it's good popcorn. Debate ranges from his credentials, whether there were reasonable questions he was ignoring in weightweenie threads, if he made up Dnitriev numbers, and whether his description of his protocol is sufficient.

To your point, I think there's a leap from claiming that air a bike is riding through is typically unsteady and very transient, to being able to set that up reliably with a wind tunnel and then measuring different wheels' timing runs under that setup.

I'm wondering where Groenewegen's head is at.

I think Ewan has a fair shot today.

Bennett is leaving Quickstep at the end of the year. Surely he can only be going to Bora?

Bonkers to get rid of him when hes winning literally everything.

Building the team around Remco and can't support a premier sprinter in the way he'd want?

And you just can't pay everyone I guess.

They let kittel, Viviani, gaviria, cavendish etc leave before. I'm sure they'll plug in some new elite sprinter again.

I reckon he’ll go to ISN, they can afford his (and maybe Morkov too) salary and Greipel must be retiring soon.
