Greetings from ID Sports!!

Cycling India brings to you the latest news from the world of cycling.

Cycling news highlights of 24th July 2012.

 

 Bradley Wiggins' whisper-light Bont shoes

Wiggins' shoe of choice is the decidedly niche-market Zero model from Australian outfit Bont. It's quite the fitting name as its ultra-minimalist construction gives it a claimed weight of just 170g per shoe - 70g lighter than Bont's already-feathery Vaypor and nearly half the weight of a more conventional high-end shoe.

Evans ready to ride for Australia in London

 


Despite his recent setbacks, Evans boarded the flight to London with the rest of the Australian team on Monday afternoon European time with no doubt in his mind over the next job on his to-do list - racing for Australia on Saturday.Absolutely, I wouldn't bother getting on the plane if I wasn't," he told reporters at Heathrow Airport. He will join Simon Gerrans, Matt Goss, Stuart O'Grady, and Michael Rogers on the start line on the Mall.

 

Sir Chris Hoy selected to carry flag at Olympic Games opening ceremony

 It won’t be the first time Sir Chris Hoy has carried the flag of Great Britain at the Olympic Games. Hoy was chosen to carry the flag for his nation at the closing ceremony of the 2008 Beijing Olympics. The decision to bear the flag at the completion of the last Games was heavily based around impressive tally of three gold medals (team sprint, keirin and sprint).

 

Cheers!!
