    Dauphine. Starts on Saturday.

    TdS starts as the Dauphine is winding up.

    Then you've got a 2 week breather before the big boy comes to town.

    Don't forget the national champs weekend in between the TdS and the TdF.

    Absolutely.

    Probably a better form indicator than the two stage races. I wish they'd get broadcast more. They're really weird races sometimes, especially the smaller countries.

    Do we know if Evans and Wiggins are riding the Dauphine? Can't wait to see their respective form.

    Yeah, Alberto soloed the last part of the Spanish RR, attacking on the final climb, only to have some guy ride his wheel the entire way then jump him in the sprint.

    Wasn't good enough to drop him then?

    If the strongest rider always won then racing wouldn't be very interesting though.

    It was Rojas. You know that guy? He is a sprinter. He did pretty amazing to hold the wheel.

    Oh Inky...

    Especially when Frenchie is concerned.

    lol, rest assured that no one on here can draw a post out of me unless I choose to. Regardless of whatever is said I am above all pokes, especially deliberate ones.

    I think the forum is doing well at the moment. The July people will start coming out soon.

    Be nice to the newbies.

    We were all sub 200 once.

    Quick question: how many gears on a racing bike?

    Some people prefer to sit back and only post when they feel they can add something insightful or new to the conversation.


    Then there's people like myself.

    I have a question, wonder if anybody can help....how come Cav has won five stages in the Tour race but isn't in the yellow jumper?

    Some have made remarkable progress.


    Judge not a man by his post count but by the very content of his character (or his shoes)

    Nothing wrong with newbies whatsoever. There are just a lot more trolls and deliberately provocative posters etc etc with low post counts. Some of them may even be members with post counts in the 1000s with a side account but that is another issue.

    Of course. TA may be classed as one of those, even if he differs opinions with me.
