Le tour de France - 2017


#865

Can I interest you in the product above?


#866

cant they introduce some new rules to make it more interesting? like providing the spectators with water baloons to throw at the riders if the race has become shit. Or maybe a mandatory BMX stage?


#867

really like the Lotto JUMBO team kit and bike :ok_hand:


#868

An elimination race every 5km would do the job.


#869

Porte gave that a go, but it ended up as badly for him as most BMX races do for most riders.


#870

@profk siesta chart for each stage


#871

‘hors categorie’? a climb so bad it cant be classified?


#872

Basically yeah. Climbs were only categorised up to cat 1 in the day, but as the tours starting exploring harder and longer climbs for ratings and explosiveness of the race, they made the HC category


#873

#874

I’ve never seen a horse on any of them. It’s a swizz.


#875

QS that high?? It’s awful.


#876

yeah but the others are worse

not much in it for those mid-table jerseys


#877

not a jersey amongst them i would actually wear


#878

And Lotto Soudal so far down. It’s one of the classiest jersey in the race.


#879

lotto

#JUMBO


#880

nah, it’s minging


#881

Basically a Dutch supermarket, so like a British team being called National Lottery Sainsbury’s


#882

Different strokes and different needs


#883

Dr Gendt goes dropping :tongue:


#884

I’ve got a bit more used to it but I still hate the BMC sleeves. Katusha is quite easily the best. Bahrain would compete if it wasn’t a complete copy of last year’s Wiggins kit and helmet.
