The guy commentating for British Eurosport looks exactly like Butch Harmon. It's really odd.

I kind of hope he goes into commentary or something after he's finally done racing.

Everyone loves Jensie.

Presumably Cavendish got the leader time for crashing in the last 3k rather than for where he actually finished?

Eurosport commentators reckoned closer to 25m. Which could well be an issue for Talansky.

I used to care about doping, now I'm just there for the show and to cheer when Sky fall to poo poo. also get caught doping.

New TdF route is out today. Looks pretty cool, and Froome has already hinted he's going to wuss out and focus on the Giro.

Only a real short individual tt as well, so it's not like Wiggins is suddenly going to come back for it either.

The way intermediate sprint points have been awarded has ruined the green jersey for the last 2 years so hopefully it will be different this time.

Agreed. I don't begrudge him for responding to the rules, but they've just sucked all the air out of sprint finishes

They need to revise the point scoring. It's ridiculous that the GC winner picks up the KotM by accident and the green jersey winner didn't win a stage.

peanut- posted:

I don't think they need to change the green jersey. Sagan wins it because he does stuff that is completely ridiculous. Coming in the top 3 in bunch sprints one day then dominating a breakaway for hours over cat 1 climbs the next.

But that's the thing, he's effectively a climber/gc guy that sprints a bit. He tends to lose in the true sprints because he prioritises being able stay up the road rather than burst power. It's tremendously impressive, but it's not sprinting.

I am prepared to concede that the problem may not be with the points, but rather that Sagan is too good.

Could you do a salary cap for cycling? Or just for the TdF? Much as Sky would scream and probably take their bikes and go home, you'd have thought it would make it easier for smaller teams to compete.
