In other pro cycling news, local Charottesville-Richmond cycling Shreddie Eddie Anderson got a Strava KOM on the climb in the Baby Giro this morning.

Glad Tony Martin is taking the Cancellara role of threatening to punch people misbehaving in the peleton.

It should be a paid position imo. The peloton needs an old man to shout at them sometimes.

Do you think they're just gonna all drift in slowly now?

I thought it might have kicked off by now if it was going to be a sprint.

Most of the crashes have happened in the town centre so far. I think they've all agreed to go from 20 based on the trains turning up now

I really need to complain about the race clock some more. They usually only show it when an hours ticks over (and then not in the corner), or after the race is finished. Every time I look at the screen now, something deep in my brain goes "race over? but 20 km to go???". Who comes up with this poo poo

Disappointed to learn Ben King isn't in the tour this year. I thought he'd be in it for sure since he's running a charity that spans the three weeks of the tour.

Entirely unrelated to anything else, but because you are the official ben king posterTM in this thread I picture doom guys head whenever I see him riding. I don't actually have any idea what he looks like in real

The peloton can have a little detergent on already slick roads, as a treat.

One good thing about the race clock is that you know exactly that it took all of 3:30 minutes for David Gaudu to just up and loving die
