    I probably will.

    Not sure who I'll hurl abuse at though.
    Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

    Well it won't be Mark Cavendish anyway :twisted:

    No, that's what's confusing me. He was my first choice.

    Oh well.

    Don't you dislike Wiggo almost as much as Cavendish?

    I imagine Bob will be in Missouri, so that's another target gone.

    I reckon Wiggins can fight - He grew up in Kilburn (pfft, Maida Vale, they're not fooling me) and I used to live around there so I reckon he's tougher than expected. I can't fight, I've just got a big gob.

    Maybe I'll just try and enjoy the cycling? And hope Rock Racing win the stage.

    I'm going. Will try to get there early and watch the British elite race beforehand, although a BBQ the night before and the lack of will power to say "no more beer please", will probably mean I arrive with just a couple of laps to go of the Tour!

    I shall certainly be there. Dissapointed rock racing are making an appearance. Might come up with a witty banner if I have some time. "*ock racing".... Maybe not.
    Note: the above post is an opinion and not fact. It might be a lie.

    The road surface on parts of the circuit is dire. Especially between Blackfriars and Tower Hill where there are some serious craters. . Should be some knackered bikes. No doubt TFL will keep the speed cameras operating and fine everyone they can

    I was thinking about that too when i was trying to avoid them on Saturday. A bloody awlful stretch of tarmac.

    I ride down there every day to work and you're right! Awful!, infact the road surface for my whole journey is bloody awful, 25 meters of smooth tarmac on a 12mile ride to work is a joke!
  • i will go but i hope that dope pattachi doesnt win!
