So that will be a primary Bernal with an off-Carapaz option? I can't see Yates doing well, and they wouldn't give anything to the tiny boy yet.

Yates will be doing the Porte roll I think. If he stays good then great, 3rd option. If hes bad, well hes just a domestique then.

Also I completely failed to notice that Sivakov is going too. Thats some fuckin mountain climbers there.

Also holy poo poo this Bahrain team

Yeah I saw this too. If getting rid of Sagan and his entourage allowed them to strengthen that much I think Bora did really well even if it meant losing specialized.

It says in the story that it reported clean originally but they went back to check it with the new test based on biological passport irregularities.

Sounds like they may be retesting a fair whack of old samples from last year using this new method. I think this is how they got the sprinter before the olympics too right? She was caught with anabolics in the sample.

This is an absolutely preposterous story and it's not a great sign that within 24 hours they're shifting from "bad supplement or something, we have no idea" to "this is a conspiracy by the evil governing body because Katie and Mark are too good and honest".

Ben King is killing it in Portugal. Stage win yesterday, second in a finish line sprint today. It's a crying shame Qhubeka didn't extend his contract. He'll be ready to smash Alpine Loop Gran Fondo when he's home next month.

Anyway, the course seems to be even slower than I expected. Also, big fan of the cable coverings immediately after the finish line that requires riders to bunny hop on TT bikes. OK, enough complaining for now
