    Stage 6 and another GC "favourite" drops out of contention, plus another is wounded. Trying to avoid posting a spoiler so don't read below if you don't want to know.

    I am also a fan of Garmin but both Talansky and Hesjedal are now out of GC contention following Stage 5. Talansy always said he was there to support Hesjedal and Martin, well now he and Hesjedal will...

    Rohan Denis is riding for BMC? According to Wikipedia he just moved from Garmin to BMC. I can't remember another rider changing teams mid-season, but I'm sure people here will come up with examples....

    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.

    Time to bring this thread back to the top and eat some of our words. The two favourites have abandoned. Teejay is riding better than I expected but Talansky is way back due to crashes. In their Tour...

    That is the coverage we are getting this year in Canada. Where does it originate? We used to get the US coverage with Bob Roll and company but now it is Matt for the first 30 to 90 minutes, then Phil...

    I think you are right. Had he not injured his hand he might have avoided the Wednesday crashes.

    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...

    Hesjedal isn't riding the Tour, being saved for the Vuelta. I don't think he would have been a GC contender but he would have been a great super-domestique for Talansky. Anybody know whether Dan...

    Announcers

    For years I have said that Phil Ligett and Paul Sherwin are the best announcers in any sport, but Phil has become prone to mistakes so Paul has to bail him out. (Such as stage 1 of the Tour of...

    I think it will be between Froome and Contador and they are evenly matched this season. Got to give the edge to Froome because Contador could keep up with him but not pass at the Dauphine. On the...

    Rohan Dennis dropped from 3rd in the GC to 67th on stage 3. The announcers thought it foolish that he was hanging at the back of the peleton and he must have been caught out. I haven't hear that he...

    The entire Dauphine was exciting but the final stage took the cake. In all my years of witching bike racing I have never seen anything like it. Contador and Froome were so intent on marking each...

    I also like Contador's guts and dislike Froome's bobblehead style. Both are extremely talented but I am rooting for Contador. Whoever wins, it is an exciting race.

    They are crazies, not true fans. Also, those people who are waving at the TV cameras instead of watching the riders.

    With misfortune knocking rivals out of contention he just needs to stay safe to win. (OK, I exaggerate, he still can be beat.)

    After the team time trial I have to go with Quintana or Evans. I like Rodriguez but he is already down after the TTT. Uran has not been in good form. Old man Evans just might do it.

    Rogers Sportsnet did not air Milan-San Remo and never posted a reason. I forgive them because I am grateful that they show a lot of cycling, but it is bush-league to not even have an announcement.
