Tour de France 2018 (and beyond?)


#181

#182

Oh hello!


#183

has to go and join the worst-looking* team, doesn’t he :frowning:

apparently lotto nl are pulling their sponsorship next season as well, so unless they get another big sponsor on board they’ll be team jumbo :smiley:

EDIT: (* - by worst-looking, i mean aesthetically speaking, as opposed to being needlessly mean about the relative levels of attractiveness of their riders! can’t get on board with the black/yellow/celeste combo at all)


#184

Woot! Van Aert!

This is now the simpsons thread


#197

what’s the rules if someone gets dropped? the team gets the time of the 4th rider over the line, right? but i guess that only holds true if they all finish within a certain time of each other


#198

Are there ever any crashes on the time trials? Would be terrifying to bail going that speed


#199

the dropped riders just have to finish within the X% time limit, no?


#200

yes, quite frequently.
