Was lucky to see him win Richmond 2015. Ah, that was... ah .... how many years ago? And then 2016 and 2017. Guy's done his work. Salute.

You can only take so many losses before you give up.

I was there, too. I was maybe ten yards ahead and to his left when he threw his helmet into the crowd to his right. It looks like we were pretty close to each other. That was a good race.

Well it's about time he gave up the road thing and going to where he can display his other mad skills. I mean, hey I loved watching him on the road as anyone, but he doesn't seem to be having much fun these days as a road professional. What do I know though, I'm not in his shoes, I don't know all the obligations and expectations one must experience as a pro cyclist of any kind, from himself and those around him.

He says he's tired. I don't blame him. He seems happier post-retirement, post-Tour.
