Maybe they just went round the village knocking on people's doors and immediately taking photos against the wall. Waking up from jetlag, shirtless, slightly confused and dour expressions. A bit different to the normal press office experience.

Jakobsen won a stage again! He’s probably nowhere near his peak but it’s incredible how he’s back racing considering the crash he had.

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

Thank gently caress that the loving Euros have to deal with live racing happening while they sleep for a change. The whole thing will go down during prime time here in Hawaii.

Speaking of gold helmets, how many times has it happened that someone has been both the world champion and the olympic champion in the same year?

Quick scan of the lists suggests never. I don't know if the previously heavy amateur leanings of the Olympics would have been an obstruction to pro-riders historically.

Prob not often since it only opened to pro riders in the 90s.

Marianne Vos and Nicole Cook in 12 and 08 I think.
Maybe Paolo Bettini?

van der Breggen is current champ in both, but rainbow was won by Dideriksen in 16.

Too many years watching new japan wrestling and figuring out start times means I'm fairly sure it's a 3am BST start, but either way I'll be up at 7ish so I'll see the fun bits

e: for reference the opening ceremony started at 12 noon here, and was at 8pm in japan

Japan is UTC+9, we are currently in BST which is UTC+1. So 8 hours.
