"If you brake, you don't win." -Mario Cipollini
Yes! I can't believe the gallery on cyclingnews didn't mention that. That's the FIRST thing I noticed. Red cranksets must not be the cat's ass after all.
I don't know. I know that the D/A is still lighter, but the Red is supposedly stiffer. Also, the past few years CSC has used D/A cranks instead of their team issue FSA. I think it must be a carbon thing, but all the campy teams ran Campy cranks. I'll try and get to the bottom of this...hahaha
I was watching the 2006 Giro the other day -- Basso had an FSA crank on in the Dolomites.
They used them for Paris-Roubaix and the other cobbled classics.
i know cancellara did the day he won, and i think stuey did last year, but I'd have to check.
Here's my take; Notice the wheels. This might be the bike setups to do cobbles. Why trash a VERY expensive pretty carbon crank in a highly probable crash during a race when you can slap on a tried and true, tough as nails, Aluminum crank without much performance loss?
