    Just flicked on Eurosport - it's looking very wet at the start
  • Yup.
    Awful weather.
    It seems to have completely changed since I got back on Saturday. Hardly saw a cloud in 2 weeks.
    Getting better again from tomorrow.

    Ach, now live with 78 soaking wet kms to go.

    Yawn yawn.. not a good day, no doubt we can blame the weather.
    'Performance analysis and Froome not being clean was a media driven story. I haven’t heard one guy in the peloton say a negative thing about Froome, and I haven’t heard a single person in the peloton suggest Froome isn’t clean.' TSP

    Anyone else enjoying the upgraded Eurosport player? They seem to have introduced the crash regularly functionality on the browser and app versions.

    I would use Sky Go, but that doesn't work on the latest version of Android, or Firefox, or Edge, and multiple screens won't work on internet explorer.

    I would also use my Belkin @TV, but that doesn't work on the latest version of android and struggles to connect these days. Plus Mrs TheBigBean is probably watching something else.

    I'm grumpy with technology.

    I'm sure Blazing will pop along with his fancy foreign never fail satellite to make me even more grumpy.

    So Eurosport player on my HTC is working fine.

    SYates, Atapuma, and Bardet out front with 15km to go and the red jersey gang 2.48m behind.

    Simon being dropped...
  • TheBigBeanTheBigBean Posts: 11,841
    Incidentally, I'm keen to know if Virgin Media's app works.

    Back at the race, Bahrain-Merida are on the front the red jersey group.
  • kingstongrahamkingstongraham Posts: 13,862
    Are they going to get caught? 2:22 advantage over 13 km doesn't seem enough.

    It does (only in UK though). I use it quite a bit. There have been jumping issues on the Eurosport feed recently.

    Got a few km of relatively flat stuff now haven't they before the final kicker? Sky not pushing it any more though, Bahrain taken it up.

    He looks so bad on the bike all the time so it's very hard to tell... but yes, he's on the back of that group now...

    My man. My GC pick. Time for him to redeem himself!
