Tour de France 2018 and associated Grand Tours


#1701

Yeah posted this in the thread. Want this so bad.


#1702

Cartes du Tour is the only thing bookmarked in my browser that’s not carefully squirrel’d away in the correct folder. Reminding me to buy it for my own birthday present on payday.


#1703

You going for the really expensive version or the slightly expensive version?


#1704

Just the £40 one. Was half-tempted to pick it up in Soho at the ToB but it’ll be rammed with twats.


#1705

Jeeeez carlton kirby is literally insufferable today


#1706

FTFY

So many races today, Vuelta, Deutschland, poulay, Brittany classic, Schaal Sels


#1707

Avenir too.

Mohoric wins overall in Deutschland after taking the Binck Bank Tour last week.

Timothy Dupont (Wanty) wins Schaal Sels

Naesen wins Brittany Classic-Poulay


#1708

yeah, he’s been driving me nuts this afternoon :grimacing:


#1709

Beating Valgren and Wellens. AG2R’s first WT win of the year, leaving EF Education First the only WT team without a WT win.

Looks bleak too


#1710

Nibs and Porte dropped


#1711

Valverde schmalverde


#1712

I thank you very much


#1713

Ned Boulting wasn’t much better. Was banging on about Kwiatkowski had the win on the last corner then Valverde burnt over the top of him.

Unlucky anyone who had Porte in their fantasy team, finishing 13.31 down down today. Lars Boom made the time limit by 4 seconds.


#1714

gonna try and go to stage 11 of the vuelta (best tour) as its really near where I live.


#1715

Aqua Blue fold


#1716

Rather jam chopsticks into my ears than listen to Daniel Friebe. Fucking hell.


#1717

So thinking you deserve everything on a fucking platter and then calling everyone dickheads when this doesn’t happen wasn’t a good business model then?


#1718

Yeah basically. Bit weird blaming the UCI (yes there does need to be changed and reformed) for their oversight and lack of any planning around the current way things are done.


#1719

So he wanted to sustain the team with money from races and an online shop? Surely he must’ve realised that that specific model isn’t sustainable in cycling’s current format


#1720

And where does leave Verandas Willems and Wout van Aert?
