Don’t we already have a thread for pro cycling from end of July to Il Lombardia? I’m all for taking over the boards with cycling though so…

Hope this Apple PostGood Colombian team does well.

Good luck to Conor Dunne getting up some of those gradients.

BrendIN canty is a patient boy


#13

@svenrokk’s absolutely knocked it out the park on his team name again

Got into the league just in the nick of time.

Vuelta is always good and there’s loads of names there this year. Course looks suitably mental. Can’t bloody wait.

It also happens to be the subject of one of the best cycling films of all time “Nasu: Andalusia no Natsu”.

Weird end to a sprint stage :smile:


#16

some actual time splits in the GC guys too


#17

average gradient of 3.8% for the first 31.5km of today’s stage.

WE HAVEN’T GOT EUROSPORT AT WORK ANYMORE WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK HELP.
