Tuesday?

Who on earth starts a Grand Tour on a Tuesday?

Sorry, did I say 'on a Tuesday'? I meant 'in October'.....

Sorry, did I say 'in October'? I meant 'when another one is still going on'.....

Perhaps had to wait until the Tour of Flanders was completed but couldn’t wait until weekend given weather closing in? It’s going to be cold in the mountains.

It was originally planned to start in Utrecht with the first 3 stages in The Netherlands over the opening weekend,
This got cancelled with 18 Spanish stages comprising The Tour.The loss of flat stages makes it very climbing biased.

Makes sense. I count just 3 stages for the pure sprinters

Final Giro table and co gratulations to Terry and his Sexual Wheeling squad for winning by a smallish margin. It helped avoiding Yates and Thomas Ian and Just a Kiwi make up the podium.

Not happy to only beat 3 other teams but with Thomas being my 4th best scoring rider I didn't have much chance!

I am also currently only beating 3 teams in the Vuelta - at least that means I have scope to improve my form....

I have deleted myself from a duplicate private league on the Spain game and now the league has disappeared from my team in the Italy game?
Tried Tweet George but no reply.
