    Game over I'm afraid.
    DE have been on a classics high since his arrival.
    Now going to hit a new low.

    Couldn't see a situation occurring where he was likely to win today, but that is a big shame as you knew he would be giving it a go

    He looks to be moving which is good.

    A blow for the race tho - am sure he'd have relished unrestricted leadership and have been getting in the mix.

  • I'm not sure about the Roquefort - this seems a hard cheese only type of day . i'd have bought that to the fore for The Basque country tour

    got your race plan sorted there. Am watching on the ipad whilst doing work for tomorrow on the PC! - not the result anyone looks for at this time of the season. At least I can choose the Hatch / Hayles comms feed....

    Daube of beef in the oven.
    Beer open.
    Here we go.
    Believe that a farther shore
    Is reachable from here.
    Believe in miracles
    And cures and healing wells

    Yeah, it's just there in case Valverde makes a move. The sausage is mostly Spanish as well. Not easy getting Belgian produce from local Copenhagen supermarkets you know!

    Good spot though!

    I'm about to beer up too. A Duvel/Westmalle combo I think.
    Impressive fare you have there. Tuna sarnie and some crisps for me. :(

    Couldn't get any Duvel :-(

    Affligem - La TRappe - Kaiser Quint - Affligem is my set-up. Was aiming to be on the Kaiser Quint 2nd Oude Kwaaremont, but that's going to be a big effort. Don't want to burn my matches too early.

    I've gone in hard with a Westie trippel. Duvel triple hop and standard stuff waiting in line.
    After that, anything could happen...

    Sky are riding so slowly, they appear to be trying to wear teams down by making them do track stands. :lol:

    Big split in the peloton!

    Looks like some lotto soudal got caught out. All back together now but I bet that was hard work for a few mins.

    Westie tripel. Possibly the greatest beer known to man. I'd kill for (be killed by) one of those today.

    Stybar appears to have stopped for a couple. :)
