TdF 2018

Recommended Posts

Jeering not cheering.

I happened to watch the TdF last night. It's pretty disturbing watching the spectators jeering the riders they dislike. I had no idea it actually happened.

One actually caused one of the riders to fall and another got hammered by the cops.

See above. If they're not French, the Basques are just as anti English

Will be interesting to see the contest in the mountains and time trial the last few days between Thomas and Froome...at least it's more 'exciting' than last year when Froome picked up the yellow right close to the beginning...like within 3 or 4 days...MY man Porte fell out again damaging his shoulder yet again. These damn Aussies. Real wimps at times..ūüėČ

An excellent La Vuelta this year - tomorrow will be horrendous but it's been one of the top closest races in many years. Old man Valverde 2nd behind Simon Yates. I'm yelling for Valverde all the way but doubt he'll pull it off at 38 years old....

Well done to Simon Yates, was a solid well deserved win the last 2 Mountain stages, a decent fightback to the loss on the Giro...

:clapping-hands:

As for old man Valverde, you remain a hero to many , a decent place the last few days were just a few mountains too far.

I just saw a newspaper headline saying ¬†that Froome broke his femur, elbow¬†and a few, ribs hitting a wall while¬†blowing his nose¬†doing¬†40mph on a¬†cycle. I guess the snot in his nose is the least of his worries. ūüėÄ

Yes actually awful accident, terrible to miss the Tdf 2019. Was looking forward to the contest vs Thomas and Bernal...Speedy recovery

I see Froome is in ICU. At 34 this could be a career ending injury

I saw the interview yesterday morning with someone from his team and he said even then before the operation that this was a bad accident, he was wiping his nose and a gust of wind hit him.

Even when I go cycling, I go nowhere near the pace of these guys, but we get strong winds and I am extremely cautious.

Check this one, go to 30 seconds...
