    So poor old Pierre is probably not going to get to even wear the jersey, let alone win it.

    This is an entirely good thing. He should be banned from ever wearing it again after the polka dot shorts.

    I'm prepared to forgive. He's older and wiser and has hopefully learnt his lesson. But we must never forget and he should serve as a warning from history. That is why there should be grave concerns about Pogacar match white shorts with his white jersey

    Must be a neo pro thing. MvdP prefers white shorts to black ones as well.

    Looks like I made a good decision then.

    Good ride by Kamna, he deserved that.

    Interview with Bernal looks like he's going to drop out.

    WHAT A TOTAL DISASTER FOR JEROME'S COUSIN!


    Colombia have left Bernal out of their World’s team so it’s likely he’s told them he’s going to be out for a while
    Not that they need another chief.

    That is one heck of a strong team for the mountains!
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Well he's racing a little. Won a race a month ago. It looks like Colombia have focused on riders at the Tour.

    He looks lit in those and I won’t hear anything to the contrary

    Just a shame the World's course doesn't really have any mountains. One for puncheurs.

    White shorts are infinitely better than socks pulled halfway up your calf. Roglic's yellow ones are a particular monstrosity. Also not a fan of the jersey/shorts trend that sees them all the way down to the elbow/knee.

    Picking the best players instead of the best team then. 😉

    To be fair, a number of those riders have done well in Lombardia, with Chaves winning it, so shorter climbs are something they should be okay at. It's just whether they'll be able to help much on the bits that aren't climbs.

    Yeah, I thought he must have been ill or injured as not at TA or the Tour then saw he wasn't in the World's squad so looked and saw he'd won the final stage at Burgos (beating Landa among others) back at the end of July so wondered if something had happened since. If not then hopefully he'll be at the Giro to support Thomas and build on his experience from last year.

    Agreed all round.
