LOL ~ very good.

And yes, I'm Defender watching but also looking out for those Grenadiers, and wouldn't mind spotting one or two AXR Crossbones.

The Tour has been a disaster for Ineos Grenadier. Hopefully not an omen. WARNING.

4.6km from the finish today, spotted the Orange nosed one parked on the inside of one of the loops.

I wanted to say 'the wheels have come off' blah blah

However i am not surprised. When i saw the original team rota i felt that this was very much a changing of the guard.

Frome leaves the team at the end of the season and Thomas was looking to leave the other year, and won that years TDF. How much longer will Thomas stay i don't know.

Like all dominate teams they ride the crest, then have to start again and rebuild.

It will be interesting to see Thomas in the Giro, will he go for it with a grin on his face to say 'you should have picked me.....'

Lets wait and see.. Thumbs Up

G looked strong all round in the Terreno Adriatico. Loneger time trial and three week event and he might pip Yates. If both make the Giro it could be a corker. And Froome always said he loved the racing of the Vuelta more, so that will be an interesting swan song, assuming they don't parachute in Bernal. Monsieur Le Grenadier

I've not been everywhere, but it's on my list.....

Beyond epic ~ very entertaining to watch.

I can't get my head around not racing tomorrow, same in Le Man's with the last lap ~ is it entirely a French thing.

And is there another elite sport in the world where competitors will drink champagne & smoke cigars whilst still competing?
