    I agree that the current top 4 will probably not be on the podium in Madrid. Therefore, the GC standings start with Valverde, Rodrigues 7 second behind, Quintana & Aru 8 seconds behind, etc. On the...

    Orica Greenedge usually does well in team time trials but they will have only 6 starters Sunday. They won it in the Giro but they will struggle in the Tour.

    I don't really agree that the TDF should be run over cobbles, but must admit that they make for exciting viewing. I don't like them because of the risk that a GC contender could be injured or lose a...

    I have a name to add:

    Ilnur Zakarin. Never heard of him prior to the Tour of Romandie, but he just won it. He beat Quintana, Froom and Nibali up the final climb in stage 5 (behind Pinot), then...

    From Cyclingnews:

    Should we re-think neutral service?

    Crashes are part and parcel of bike racing but we don’t often see cars getting involved. Unfortunately for Jesse Sergent and Sébastien...

    Been a few years since I've seen a support vehicle take out a rider. Was it the same Shimano support driver that later rear ended another car and sent a second rider flying?

    Paris-Nice vs Tirreno-Adriatico

    They overlap next week but fortunately I will get both on TV in Canada. I think Paris-Nice is more prestigious (correct?) but T-A has a more impressive list of competitors. Contador, Nibali,...

    The merged team is mostly Garmin but their colours will be Cannondale. I loved the old Garmin colours but I guess I can't have everything.

    I have the same complaint. They should be showing the beauty of the province to attract potential tourists. The French know that. I have been fast-forwarding to the sprint finish after I have...

    Carlton Kirby is my favourite. We all have our preferences and we are all entitled to preferences. Too bad we couldn't just pick whichever feed we prefer.

    I have heard the arguments and stand by my position. It would still be mostly ceremonial and there would still be a sprint finish, but the scenery would be different. Lyon has hills that could spice...

    Time to end the Tour somewhere else

    The Giro didn't end in Milan this year, the Vuelta will not end in Madrid. It is time for the Tour to end somewhere other than Paris, if only for some years. Agreed, the Champs Elise is special, but...

    We get Phil and Paul in Canada, but with Mathew Keenan, not Bob Roll and the others. I think Australia gets the same as us, perhaps Britain too.

    Formula 1 drivers put on rain tires when it gets wet, why don't TDF racers? They would be a bit slower on the straights but faster in the corners and you are less likely to abandon. Or might some of...
