Pro teams will get the gruppos two weeks later ...
Still no word on when the public can get their hands on it, but it's likely to be in spring 2012.

British trials legend Martyn Ashton does just that and more in his latest video, The BikeRadar Roadie.
The clip sees Mountain Biking Hall of Fame member Ashton hit the tarmac on his carbon Raleigh Avanti Team on his way to the UK's premier bike festival, BikeRadar Live -- which took place on 10-11 July.

After running this ad in student newspapers across the US, GM is getting an earful.
And here’s GM’s wussy “Oh, sorry, we didn’t really put any thought into it” comments on twitter.

Finally talked to most of the guys and they will be home later this week. All are feeling well and glad to have Kona under their belts. Charles did have a rough day ending up in T2 until he could hold food down, he also was happy to finish his second Kona Ironman. Thanks Keith for the pictures. Chrissie Wellington, women's winner, John Fell crossing the finish line and John coming into T2. Way to go guys!
I was not able to talk with everyone yesterday but I do know that John Fell had three flats in T1, he lost a half hour for sure. Everyone we were tracking finished. Congrats to all four, you guys are living the dream. Safe travels back home.
Sean Schnur 9:11
John Fell 10:58
Jimmy Bienvenu 13:50
Charles Stewart 16:17

Mark and Edie,
Here are a couple pictures taken at the Redman - in case you would like to post on you sites as a follow-up. The clock in the photograph shows finish time as 15 hrs 33 min and 51 seconds.
Thanks for all you help - The Brooks running shoes that I purchased from "Geaux Run" worked out really well. My time for 26.2 miles on hoof was 7 hrs and 3 min. Not bad for 6 weeks run training after purchase of shoes (ran 5 miles twice a week - 1 hour run sessions). I think that says a lot for yours and Edie's excellent fit you did in the Brooks running shoes.
For the Redman I finished 30 minutes under my personal goal of 16 hours and I finished the triathlon injury free.
Edie and Mark, Thanks for all you help!
Official Redman stats are attached.
Best regards - Steve Howard
