Tour de France 2018 and associated Grand Tours


Loads in the opening stage last year. Someone shattered a kneecap on the 3rd bend of le tour and ruined everyone’s fantasy teams


but then they’ll finish with their own time, not the team’s time?


i think so, yeah. which is why they’ll still use up/drop domestiques and keep the leader in the bunch, even if the leader’s a weak time triallist.


Time trials are the most enjoyable stages of the tours aren’t they.


warren barguil seems to be wearing a lifejacket




Don’t be an idiot, mate


i’m a big time trial fan, personally.

the most fun stages to watch are probably the really brutal mountain stages that completely blow the field apart.


Cooler bikes, flasher and tighter outfits, can more or less keep track of everything going on.


But the bike racing isn’t as good. Prefer them to flat stages. But hilly and mountain stages are much better than TTs


Bell-endy bikes, bell-endy outfits. Just really boring and bell-endy.


i really want a tt bike




I love a TT, and TTTs are even better. And mountain TTs are even betterer

downhill ITT would be the only exciting one

TTs are good just not to watch


They can be alright if it’s towards the end of the tour and a climber has a significant time gap over the TTers.


Giro 2017 was a good one.


They’re not, I agree, but they’re good set piece stages, and often provide good tension for the rest of the race.

Cadel Evans final TT in 2011 is one of the best TdF stage of previous years
