    Well De Marchi is definitely not on the front right now.

    A panzerwagon is on the attack in Alsace.

    What is going on with Sagan's hair in his rider info graphic???

    He's modelling himself on Wolverine from X-Men. He's got the eyes on his helmet and the bike... :roll:

    Edit: glorious:

    Wolverine?
    I see... does he have a reason? Got to admire the commitment at least.

    He's Eastern European so he thinks it's cool......

    Harsh but fair...

    If they get two winners at least it will be easy to split the prize.

    Is there likely to be any footage of the incident? Maybe someone will have it on camera and get £250 by sending it in to 'You've been Framed' :):):)

    Not only the GC looking wrapped up, the Lanterne Rouge looks done and dusted unless Cheng doesn't make it through the high mountains.

    The race needs Nibali to have a really bad day.

    It's a nice thought but Nibali would have to lose an awful lot of time to challenge Cheng...

    Not post of the Tour but possibly quote of the Tour. :lol:

    According to me, he was moving up during the descent. That didn’t seem necessary to me because we were already quite near the front. I didn’t see exactly what caused the crash but I saw him crashing. He touched the ground a couple of times really hard. Eventually, he ended up at the side of the road. At first I thought he would not get back up. It was a big hit. We were going really fast,” Keukeleire told Cyclingnews.

    According to me???? I presume this is a ropey translation of what Keukeleire actually said. Brilliant, all the same.

    I clearly meant to type The Toblerone has melted... I'm ruining this now aren't I?

    Bradley Wiggins is to Sky and British Cycling what Ryan Giggs is to Manchester United. He's so much part of the furniture and brand that they'll keep him around as long as he wants to be and can make some sort of contribution. If he gets indulged then it's because he's earned it.
    Absolutely and with good reason.

    He won the Tour and that gives you privilege.

    If his riding the track and targeting the spring classics gets people interested then more power to him.

    Contador has won three Tours, two Giros and Two Vueltas.

    Following on from your reasoning I wonder what privileges he should be entitled to?

    Stabilisers? :D:D
