    Chinaman is a British thing, like Irishman, Dutchman or Danishman. Not meant as a derogatory term, just a form of singular demonym.

    Yeah, I agree the kits this Tour look pretty homogenous. I miss the days of T-mobil's hot pink, Radobank's orange, etc.

    Favorite kit of all time was the Mondrian-inspired La Vie Claire/Look kit....

    Quite a few riders in the tour used to be MTB racers.

    But if you put Froome, Contador, Merckx, Anquetil, Hinault or whomever in their prime on a modern mountain bike, they would be crushing it to...

    What's not to appreciate? Blistering acceleration, a train of lead outs peeling off to dodge and jostle amongst... It's exciting, dangerous, fast, everything.

    No doubt. They used to kill us with Saab ads. Seemingly two or three every break. :lol:

    Yeah, I'd love to see TV keep the dots. Points total aside, he's been the KOM in my mind so far this year.

    I was really hoping to see Nibali sneak off and gain back enough to put a scare into Sky....

    There are elements of it that kinda remind me of LeMond and Hinault, however.

    Col du Tourmalet. Such a beautiful, brutal ascent. Wish there was a tighter battle to force a bloodbath, but maybe Cadel will try his luck (legs) anyway.

    Yeah, I'd say Sagan will need a day after his effort today. Greipel and Cav are both pretty motivated for stages right now, and like was mentioned above, Cav's tempo today should have earned him a...

    What an awful thing to sabotage the tour like that. I was pleased to see BW neutralize the peloton. Good sportsmanship is admirable!

    I was equally pleased to see both Sagan riding out of his boots...

    Yeah, Phil is quirky and gets it wrong sometimes. But he's one of the voices of this sport. I enjoy listening to him and Paul every year, and would miss that element if they went away. Hell, today he...

    I'm enjoying this tour. Yes, it probably would have been more interesting if Andy and Contador were in there, but all the same, I'm enjoying the ride. Not that I EVER wish harm on anyone, but it...

    Impossible to say without looking at it on the bike. In your big ring/big cog now, how much cage movement is left in your RD?
