Cycle commuter and occasional tourist for over 20 years. Bought a sub-10kg road bike in Spring 2011 and greatly enjoying it - can't believe how much difference a few kilos makes.

comment Why are there no team breakaways in road racing?
Agree a team breakaway in the mountains would make no sense. But not every flat stage has a mountain stage the next day, e.g. in the first week of the TdF.

@wdypdx22 i take your point, but the Tour de France doesn't enter the mountains in the first week. This year there were 4 non-time-trial stages (3-6) with no mountain stage (or time trials) that day or the next.
