Look closely at Tony Martin’s rear wheel and he uses the quick release lever on the drive side to tuck the rear derailleur cable in line with the frame.

Really grateful to live and ride in the Pacific nw with fantastic racing in our backyard. @theathletic #Holeshot @castellicycling
Oh boy, You have no idea of how many brains you are screwing with right now. The photography, the good vibes, the open mind, the (r)adventure. What your doing is perfect:
Newton to Sterling. 61 miles.
Sterling to Ness City. 105 miles.
Ness City to Scott City. 56 miles.
Scott City to Eads, Colorado. 104 miles.
Well, after 6 days, 520 miles and 4 roads - I’ve made it across Kansas. Here’s how I coped…
1. Made the most of the wind. The direction changes hourly in Kansas, so when I had a tailwind it was head-down and go for of it.
2. Stayed in motels. They’re fairly cheap and most haven’t changed since 1983, which is amazing. Back to campsites after Denver though.
3. Started everyday with Bill Withers, Lovely Day.
4. Podcasts. Lots of them. Particularly one called ‘Err Yea Dude’, America through the eyes of two American Americans.
5. Ice cream
It wasn’t actually as bad as imagined. The limitless horizons of crops, cows, dirt and grass are strangely beautiful, particularly early morning with the sun rising behind you. But I’m definitely ready for some mountains now.
