Less than two weeks till the best Grand Tour and the start list is sexy.

Don't think I've heard a sports commentator actually audibly blub before. Kirby, bless 'im.

Long term gains.
(If future testing dictates, this can be removed)

The Vuelta is bloody amazing isn't it?

And what a great week. Bet365's cycling ignorance. Boom 80/1 to win ToB TT. Poels 150/1 e/w in todays stage. Ta very much.

World Championships starting this weekend, I think Froome in the TT is GB's only chance of getting a medal, though I'm a bit surprised that neither TT national champion are representing us.

Cummings overlooked for the likes of Geoghegan Hart, Doull, Dibben, Christian for the road race; I don't blame him telling them to stuff the TT.

Mental if Froome wins the ITT, and I'll struggle to buy it, but would not surprise me. Tom Dumoulin should smash it.

I didn't realise Cummings was invited to do it, don't blame him for declining in that case.

Dumoulin handing out a lesson in time trailing.

Kirby gushes over Froome. Fuck off.

Would not be a great surprise if Dumoulin took it tomorrow as well, especially if the Dutch are on it; with Boom, Van Emden, Terpstra etc, then Poels putting the hurt on for the climb to shed Sagan/Kwiato/GVA etc for Dumoulin to go solo. Certainly been a theme in the youth races this week.

Probably going to come from the Sagan, GVA, Gilbert, Kwiato, Matthews etcetcetc lot tho. Side bet of Wellens.

Do we have final VDS standings? I do believe I've lost the jersey.

Increasingly clear that it's just not possible to win clean in this era of fantasy cycling.

Sickened and upset that my brother has won. I'm not going to tell him that he's won and just hope that he doesn't remember to check.

I'm pleased with my performance this season, it's good to be on the podium. It's quite incredible how close our whole league is given the spread of scores in the whole competition.

Based on my knowledge of and general disrespect for womens cycling, I’m happy to avoid negative points.
