In short, you get most posts when polemics are in play.

And no one cares about sprints.
Fckin' Quintana … that creep can roll, man.

    Or good, old-fashioned breakaway stages. This saddens me a little.

    Can't tell a sprint from a breakaway until the last half hour anyway.

    You forgot 'Cav didn't win' sprint stages, no?

    Cav was hardly there, so his impact wasn't felt so keenly this year.

    Interestingly, it appears the forum cared more about this Tour than they did the 2012 effort

    Yay the WPR™ thread wins!

    It was the WPR™ what won it.

    Highlight of the tour was WPR. Hope Mr Prudhomme is aware of that.
