Tour de France 2018 (and beyond?)


#361

shit boring stages?


#362

Long pointless stages. Yohann offredo had a massive pop at Aso yesterday.

Who knows. But it’s Bastille Day and the peloton are on a cafe ride


#363

Look at Sagan at the back of the bunch clowning around.


#364

Throw him off the tour!


#365

Something has happened!


#366

what? I can’t be arsed turning the telly on


#367

A breakaway with Laurens Ten Dam


#368

No doubt theres something in this, but shit data (eg theyre only looking at itv4 highlights show - which has clashed with world cup), means ill take it with a pinch of salt for now.


#369

Good point. I didn’t realise that


#370

nice to see the public WAKING UP to the fact that the one day races/world championships are the better watch.

watched a sunday in hell last night by the way. incredible.


#371

one of the #asksagan questions on eurosport just there was “what do you do to relax at the tour?”

“yesterday we relaxed for 225km”


#372

Would like to see the numbers vs. The last World Cup year


#373

Let’s put it this way, it’s currently on the host broadcasters 4th sport channel. It’s Bastille Day. And they’ve moved the start and finish times to accommodate the #worldcup. Not a priority today


#374

1998 must’ve been hideous for French sports hacks with a home, successful world cup and festina kicking off


#375

#376

As if kirby couldnt get any worse, both him and brian are properly mouth breathing today. Think this is prob the biggest single impact on the viewing figures


#377

eurosport player crashes with 2km to go

absolutely go and fuck yourself


#378

Oof. Unlucky japes.

Dg looking good. Good showing from griepel in second. First time ive noticed gaviria get proper aggro (headclash) after clashing with the gorilla.


#379

managed to get it on itv in time for the last 750m

wonder what’s going to happen to gaviria. no way he’s getting away with that.


#380

Threw Renshaw out for that in '09. Would be disappointed if they didn’t follow suit.
