Wiggans on the front page of every British newspaper.

Wiggins, Cav, Millar & Froome at a secret location back on UK soil and joined by Stannard.

Quantum Leap and The Fall Guy on ITV 4.

Nicky Campbell pretending to know what he's talking about on 5Live, Chris Evans showing he has no idea (and neither does bike mad Vassos) but loves the patriotism

Just got to wait 3 or 4 hours to wait until Boston's big picture gallery is online and 5 sleeps until that chipper in South West London.

Time to go actually for a bike ride?

Nah, it's pishing it down outside. Let's troll on 'tinternet.


  • Pishing down! Where are you?

    It does get on my tits a bit all these media folks pretending to know what they're on about. It's fine for them not to know, but I wish they didn't pretend that they do.

    Anyway, I guess we should enjoy our sport being in the headlines for the right reasons this week. Hopefully it still will be on Sunday morning!

  • Given that Wiggins/Froome/Cav left for Surrey last night, I hope they left some money behind the bar for the party for the guys that stayed in Paris :D

    I know Wiggins is on the front of every paper, but Ive just been on BBC news website where its also been on the front for 2 days, and there is nothing about wiggins in the 'top 10 most read' or 'top 10 most shared' stories. So he's all over the news, but nobodies paying much attention.

    Just another rest day...
