Velo News Tech Editor Zack Vestal snapped a picture of these interesting pedals from Speedplay today before the third stage of the Tour. No details other than they are currently pro only, and specifically designed for the Classics. So far Andy Schleck is apparently the only one to be riding them.
Check out all of the special cobble bike tech at today’s Tour stage in Zack’s article on VeloNews.
In yet another stage filled with crashes Saxo Bank rider Frank Schleck gets the worst and ends up victim to the cobbles of the North of France. After going down on the toughest section of cobbles of the day, Frank rolled to the side of the road and did not get up. Reportedly Frank has broken his collarbone in 3 places, and is undergoing immediate surgery to repair the damage. So clearly Frank’s tour is over, although brother Andy and Fabien put in a great ride to finish in the lead group.
