  • Excellent, excellent

    On such a start to the season a triumphant run at the Tour can be built
  • Well what can I say, I'm now expecting a day in a jersey and a stage win. Come on le blancs!

    Clearly Feillu has been working hard, had a 3rd and a 6th place so far.
    Nothing can stop them now...

    ETA: plus 2nd on GC!

  • Vegard Stake Laengen in a heroic 4 man break 1st stage of Tour of Med - if they hadn't got the wild card for the tour it would be these sorts of performances that questions would have to be asked
  • I'd like to think that it is the TdF wild card that is bringing these performances out. I'm sure they are aware of how "lucky" they have been and now want to show they merit their place. I'm quite excited about their presence in the Tour and I hope they get lots of Europcar like exposure by riding off the front.

    It's your signature making all the difference, YP. It's more motivating than all the bonuses the team can promise

    As long as they're not already practising the Europcar-like gurning ahead of their big day out. Okay, so that's only really Tommy V, but does anyone else wish he'd just stop pulling silly faces and get on with it?

    Actually, another team throwing out weird, pointless attacks might be counter-productive if it encourages the big hitters to just sit back and do their own thing. The best animators are those who either threaten the status quo or those who can create enough chaos in depth that it opens up opportunities for the main players to make a move.

    Challenges for the team later this week…

    Trofeo Laigueglia Fri 21st.
    Tour du Haut Var Sat 22nd till Sun 23rd.
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Anthony Delaplace best placed rider for the team today in Ligularia @ 13th. Good effort by Christophe Laborie in the breakaway group of 4 riders, which was caught at the foot of the Paravenna climb with around 35km to go.

    I
    have returned from my great travels (half term holidays with the kids) and it is good to see Bretagne Seche are still smashing it to pieces. Game massively raised by these boys. I'd like to think it's the eye-catching use of colour in the signature RR :wink:

    Thanks for the photo FF. The team of the moment; Sky's Seb Henao on a borrowed EquipeBSE Kemo bike after theirs were stolen.

    That could be a decent favour to remember in July!
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    The Vikings are coming!

    No shameless "bump" required. Success for the team as Florian Guillou takes the KOM jersey in the Tour du Haut Var…

    I'm sure I saw all that Mimosa during the closing ceremony of the winter games yesterday :)
  • How long are Florian Guillou's legs! :shock:
    Correlation is not causation.
  • The next outing for our team is Classic Sud Ardeche on Sat

    Sepulveda and the Feillu bros are riding, as well as Monsieur KOM and daddly long legs Florian Guillou

    Engaging read, ta. And this is how to dress a podium - nice sash. Regardez Yorkshire.

    My favourite part of France. I'd love to go and watch that.

    Happy about that. I have Vachon in my podium cafe/FAS team.
