    Not a post on the forum, but this is the Twitter thread of the Tour and demands a wider audience. It was even retweeted by one of it's subjects with the comment 'All seem pretty accurate'

    That's brilliant.

    Could do with an unroll though to make it a bit more readable...

    Yeah, but the business behind those unroll things is shady - it basically scapes the content and adds it to loads of websites for clickbait. Author doesn't see a penny. Some of mine has been scraped - and the format ruined, as threading is a different writing style - so now I'm blocking on sight. I do it for fun, not cash, but it still annoys me.

    Also I'm 48, so the only thing I know how to 'unroll' is socks. So I couldn't do it anyway.

    How do you keep pairs together otherwise?

    Who'd have thought after stage 16 that the Ineos party in Paris was going to be a lot more fun than the Jumbo-Visma one?

    kinda summed this tour up

    Been a good race, and a really interesting course this year. Chateau to the organisers.

    i hope that was deliberate

    I just accept that 99% of what I say isn't actually funny. It helps having two cynical daughters about to remind me.

    And a wife. Or does she encourage you, while winking at your daughters?

    There have been words. It's mostly why I take it out on you lot.
