    Jumbo have certainly changed the racing............................not. :D

    They have. If ineos were on the front the group would be quarter of the size.

    I forgot Valverde is national champ now... he's near the front now too. Finish could suit him, non?

    And while Arkea - Ineos kits do look similar, Arkea have more white and Ineos more black. so it's not really that hard Chasey! Just watch on a bigger screen! :wink:

    And I quite like Roglic's national champs jersey

    Screens are sometimes proportionate to viewer size. :wink:

  • What's with the dirty grey Ineos numbers?

    Jumbo are more than happy to step into Ineos's shoes at the moment...

    Shutting down every attack then putting a fearsome train on the front...

    Still a big group.

    Why does Kirby always say toot when he means drink.

    Impey second, Bernal third.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.

    Lol...

    Wout says "apparently I have good legs" ... "so we got the whole yellow train on the front"...

    Not working if they are some fiendish marginal gain.

    They're also pinning them apart rather than next to each other to leave a stripe of red kit visible between them. The net effect is to make Ineos much easier to tell apart from Arkéa in the overheads - don't know if that's why they're doing it though.
