Got some good people there. I need to plan where to see it (in pub on TV, on Saturday, Saltaire Sunday).

Pinot is 13 seconds behing Geraint Thomas in Tour de Alps, with one to go, after being overtaken in last 50m to finish second on last stage.

Just watched the highlights of Stage 1 TdY. 3 year old: "Look, he's pulling a funny face!". That man? Tommy V.

Anyway: helluva pile up at the end, but a good stage.

Today is mostly flat, but quite exposed in places, so we might see some echelons splitting the peleton. This'll increase pressure to be at the front, in case the fiels does fragment.

Tomorrow's stage looks hard. There's a fair few short sharp ramps (Cote de Silsden, see video, about 1 minute in)before Riddlesdon, it's half mile at 16% then another mile at 7% from memory, so 1.5miles at 10%) I hate it, but the view is nice) which could aid a break before the plunge towards Sheffield

Cote de Slisden? Would brexit supporters approve?

"Thibaut is super motivated. He’s in great form and he’s surrounded by a great team. The level is high but the competition doesn’t frighten him,"

What could go wrong in Giro d'Italia?

While Quintana is obviously the favourite, i really wonder what all the dutch (Mollema, Kruijswijk and Dumoulin) will be doing..


just 10 seconds after i wrote a blog on the descenders'prize, the prize was cancelled!

A rider clipped a motorcycle and went down, skittling half the Sky team and other riders. Thomas is now five and a half minutes down on Quintana. Pinot sits twenty eight seconds behind the Colombian race leader.
