    I hate when people declare a race over with 10 stages to go. Aru has a 27 second lead over Rodriguez and 30 over Dumoulin. There's plenty of scope for him to have bad days (like Froome did today),...

    Good thing it's going to lash rain and cold all day tomorrow in Andorra then, isn't it.

    I would think anyone who drinks beer and rides bikes would answer yes to this.

    Henao. Finished 123rd on the stage and slipped from 14th to 26th on gc. Rolled in with the 3rd big group 10'50 down. Probably more annoyed about not being able to support Roche and Froome in the...

    2 monument wins in the spring earns a lot of leeway in the GTs, especially when Giant aren't hurting for stage wins or jerseys. I'd say Sagan would happily trade his green jersey for a few extra bike...

    Degenkolb and his leadout team blew that one today. Obviously protecting Dumoulin was as important as anything, but with Bouhanni, Sagan and Ewan all gone home, JohnD ought to be getting it done.

    Reading some of the post-race quotes, it seems Purito and Valverde weren't surprised to see Dumoulin performing like that; the climb was made up of several short steep sections connected by longer...

    Well that makes sense. Get the feeling that for the rest of his career every time he shows up near the front at Roubaix or Flanders there'll be a "this guy's so tough he won a Vuelta stage with a...

    Boeckmans is in an induced coma, apparently. Sounds serious.

    Stuyven won won the sprint despite a broken scaphoid in his wrist.

    And Sagan was fined 300 Swiss Francs for kicking out at the...

    Crash takes out Martin, Van Garderen, Bouhanni and Boeckemans. Then a Moto knocks Sagan down in the final kms as the sprint was building up.

    Stage winner Jasper Stuyven was in the big crash of the...

    Or Dumoulin could be the Melcior Mauri? (Probably not enough TT for him to pull it off...)

    I very much doubt that. More likely Roche has been maintaining his GC position because Sky know Froome might not be 100% after his Tour efforts. Even if Roche is their go-to guy, it doesn't make...

    Yup. I buy the 18-packs of Clif minis; the majority of my rides are under 2 hours, and a full size bar is too much calories for that time frame. I think the last time I ate a full clif bar was...

    A clif bar won't melt in my back pocket like a snickers will, though. Which is my primary reason for preferring them, there's no significant difference in price.

    Or Froome could end up working for Roche. Who's to say?

    Tomorrow should be the end of the shadow boxing. 18km uphill is different to 3 or 4. Roche will be working for Froome, not Roche. Aru and Landa won't be hiding and Valverde won't be following wheels...

    I should point out those ToC and TdS wins were in 2014. He finished 55th in the Giro this year, 3 hours down on Contador. Can only assume that his priority in that race was looking after his...

    This. Unless Shimano is prepping a WiFi-OneBy-12speed-hydrodisc-thruaxle-allroad 1:1-thru-5:1 CVT group that is equally at home on MTB, Gravel, road and TT, there's no reason to sit on it while SRAM...

    He's won stages to Mountain High (Tour of CA) and Verbier (Tour de Suisse), so he's not just a puncher. I can't see him hating tomorrow's finish, and Saturday is another 4km summit.

    It's surprising that the etap seems to have been developed completely independently of the WiFli and 1x systems, as you'd think the 3 would complement each other very well. No hydraulic brake option...

    Sagan 2nd AGAIN.

    Good thing he won yesterday or people would be asking questions. Roche missed a trick by not holding on for 3rd and the 4 bonus seconds, any little bit helps when you're seconds...

    Well he might've had a chance if he'd followed Chaves' attack, but by letting him get up the road and build a lead he couldn't bridge the gap.

    In fairness, I don't think anyone would've expected...
