I see they're banning team radios for a couple of stages this year. Good thing I reckon, as the racing is a bit spoilt by the riders always having perfect knowledge of what's going on having been told by their managers, rather than having to pay attention and working it out for themselves. The teams seem to complain that they're useful for riders having mechanicals and the like - a point which is rather nullified by the fact they're allowing neutral service radios for that sort of thing. An alternative I reckon would be one way radios with riders allowed to talk to the team car, but not the other way round.
Anybody else got any thoughts, or even interested in this?
