Cav climbs off the final stage.

Cees Boi pips Sagan in the sprint.

Coverage of the US races is still as bad as it was 10 years ago - constant picture freezes and breakup, makes it so hard to watch.

It's comforting that some things don't progress

Constant rolling rider quotes along the bottom of the screen but more often than no, no time gaps to see.

The race, the rules, the coverage - awful year.

Nice little race @ L'Ain where my man Geniez takes a stage returning after his bad crash at Basque Tour. Pinot second Franck third .A bit too good for this level but good to see them doing French bread and butter races

I find it disappointing that cyclingnews no longer seems to publish results of smaller races. Half of the fun of cycling is following these races to see how riders are doing in their preparation for big races, but also how certain young riders are progressing.

Procyclingstats is your one. None of the adverts or quotes blown out of proportion either

Yes, that's where I've been going recently, but I just think it is sad that cycling news is going backwards. All the quotes it has now are what was said in TV interviews, so the value of the site is in clear decline.

Did no channel over here, or seemingly anywhere, show the Tour of Norway?

Could have sworn I watched it last year, but could be wrong - all I can find is 'last km' and highlights offerings.

Hayter was upfront at the TDY. Where is he off too?

Thanks. I enjoyed that. The German kid who came second has some style doesn't he? Quite a contrast with Hayter's smoothness.

Was a stagiaire at Sky last year wasn't he? That and his background would have made him almost certainly a future Sky rider but I guess we don't know if Ineos will go down the same route.
