    With the World's in Flanders the weekend before it's an excellent little spring classics week in the autumn
    “Road racing was over and the UCI had banned my riding positions on the track, so it was like ‘Jings, crivvens, help ma Boab, what do I do now? I know, I’ll go away and be depressed for 10 years’.”

    Is there going to be a poll? Friebe gave it 3 wine glasses. I think I probably agree - great first week but there's not even been a sniff of jeopardy in the GC since.

    Had to check that Paris Roubaix is October. Mitch Docker says is riding but past week has been drinking beers and following the Tour with the Cycling Podcast lot. Not peak training I thought.

    It's a solid two wine glasses.

    I haven't done PTP yet. I may do the grades tomorrow.

    Does Mark Drakeford know about this? I thought we were only allowed to go to Tenby.

    Sad to hear there was some numpty fan made it on to the podium.
    Good to hear that Bernard dealt with him, as Bernard does.
    The above may be fact, or fiction, I may be serious, I may be jesting.
    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    After the podium in Paris I think we should lobby harder for the grey jersey to replace the white. Would be great to see the winners student offspring being dragged on

    Where's the cut off? 35?

    1st Valverde
    2nd Porte
    3rd Thomas
    4th Bakelants
    5th Geschke
    6th Erviti
    7th De La Parte
    8th Van Avermaet
    9th Gilbert
    10th Gruzdev

    Then Hollenstein, Clarke, Greipel, Simon, Froome, Devenyns, Morkov and Cavendish are the other entries.

    Valverde obviously oldest and fastest.

    Sadly us IronMan triathletes are no longer welcome in Tenby... But right now half of England is .... 🤔🧐
