    Give the ladies the s3! Maybe she would've won gold (wishful thinking right?).  At least they would've got good advertising on the tv for it.

    Why promote a bike that is not being produced anymore ?

    Were any of the men on S2's, or other Cervelos?

    we fret about the bike, but the bigger engine certainly won that race.

    +1. I was holding off, but while congratulations should be offered to Armitstead and Zabelinskaya for their fine rides on S2s, Marianne Vos is in a league of her own as the preeminent female cyclist of this generation and Vos is the first person we should have been congratulating, even on a Cervelo forum.

    Clearly Cervelo fanboyism is more dominant here, not surprising in the least. Whether S5s/S3s had been used, the outcome would have been the same.

    Vos is like a rising Merckx in the women's world, and we should have been celebrating that win way more here.

    Sorry. Meant s5. And if they have s3's lying around, give them to the ladies. Had s2 and s3 and s3 is an awesome bike. But i digress, give the ladies s5's! And congrats to Vos. Great win.

    Not too late to start a thread on her ..

    p.s. the sport is called bicycle racing not bicycle winning for the reason that more take part in than winners can come out oSo >>

     Congrats to Kristin Armstrong on winning the Individual TT Gold, her second straight gold. Too bad she's no longer riding Cervelo.

    I swear on my life that Michael Rogers (Team Sky, Australia) was riding a Cervelo in the ITT today. Anyone have photos/video so I can double check?

    looks like a P3 to me too. Funny thing, aero bike, aero helmet, aero clothes, very non aero GoPro attached to the handlebars.

    The GoPro was probably just the pre-ride video but that is a P3 if I've ever seen one. Check this... https://twitter.com/cervelo/status/230715160778657792 :)

    It takes some time to realize, in fact it needs some time to proof an good idea and concept. The message is: A actual worldclass cycling athlete can win a olympic medal with a smile even if it rains cats and dogs on a frame developed by Cervélo 8 years before .. oSo >>
