We had not left it yet, but when I would wake in the night, I would lie, listening, homesick for it already.

Joining Ineos and becoming massively better at time trialing immediately? Unheard of.

Almeida only 7 seconds faster than yates, way less then i thought it would be.

Thomas pretty mediocre, maybe he's also caught the mysterious disease afflicting everyone who was good at sky when freeman was the team doctor

Carapaz did not get given the Ineos TT juice.

Not the most auspicious return for Hirschi either.

Disc Brakes on TT bikes are so dumb

Disagree, at least for amateur where being able to actually slow down effectively before the turn (esp if a car comes out of nowhere) and being able to resell your disc wheel after lots of use both are valuable things to be able to do

Agreed. OP has clearly never had to jam the brakes on when you thought you could chance a roundabout before.

Also Froomes injury has absolutely ruined him, he looks about 80w down on power.

He's just slacking off and publicly looking like a spent force so he will be allowed to do poo poo later in the year. It's full 4D chess, galaxy brain stuff.

He's definitely not suffering from injury or being off the horse mix. Totally worth the millions.

Le Parisien reporting P-R is cancelled which isn't much of a surprise... but it's possible the race will happen at the end of october. Wanna see a bunch of cyclists suffering cobblestones in a rainstorm at 2C now.

Yates seems to have significantly improved in all aspects including his climbing and his time trialing ever since he put that Ineos kit on. Very interesting!

Yates is on fire, he has to be leader at the tour on this form.

Also if almeida loses more time tomorrow Ineos could go 1-2-3
