    Contador we can be pretty sure still has a bit of Giro in his legs. Hopefully by now the fatigue of 2 weeks of Tour racing has equalised some of the others closer to his level. Nibali came in off the...

    Tiso had that 3 years ago. Why am I not seeing them on every bike everywhere?

    They didn't just "keep up with" the front group. They blew it apart.

    Of course, the fact that Gesink, Yates, Rolland and Gallopin all finished ahead of Contador, Van Garderen and Nibali should...

    Froome isn't pulling the peloton along for 100 miles, Stannard and Poels and Porte and Thomas are. On the first mountain stage the question wasn't so much about how Froome could drop Quintana, it was...

    No point in Quintana trying to attack Froome today. Valverde was tasked to do that in the transition stages, make Sky burn matches trying to cover attacks. Any attack in the last couple of days would...

    Barguil cut across Bonnet's line and touched wheels. Bonnet went down, then everyone did.

    Well it's 200 BEDS, but from all the stories of mattresses on the floor and riders sleeping in hallways, it seems it's some way short of 99 (ie, 198/2) rooms.

    I don't know that the rule/score change was deliberately aimed at Sagan himself, as much as at people who score points but don't win stages generally. So this year that would include Degenkolb, who's...

    It's not just the lack of convenience or consistency of the hotels, though. Even on price, the millions of Euro that gets spent on hotel rooms every year could easily cover enough vehicles to sleep 3...

    It also wasn't so much that he "missed a move," more that he got dropped on the climbs expecting to get back on, but the pace got so high (once the other teams heard Cav was dropped, obv) that it was...

    TJ said after it was just to stay out of trouble, but that seems a lot of work just to avoid trouble. Maybe they thought GvA could mix in there and find the right wheel before that last corner? Like...

    Let's be clear, Cannondale's support for Sagan last year amounted to DeMarchi going on long solo breaks, and some other guys doing a bit of bottle carrying. He had no real leadout train or support in...

    Saxo won 1 jersey at the Tour last year. Sagan was still with Cannondale at the time.

    I agree about Sky being a bad move for Landa. He's good enough to lead a team now. But getting away from...

    Your 2nd para is probably the answer to the first. If Valverde's legs weren't as good as they are, he would've been tasked with driving at the front and ditching Thomas when he looked slightly...

    Kwiatkowski's been working hard for the team, but that finish looks a bit Amstel-Goldy, and he romped away with that one, and there's no Gilbert at the Tour. I think that climb will be too much for...
