TdF Stage 4 [Possible Spoiler Content]
Thanks for starting this one 🙂
I dunno what they’ll make of this stage. It’s hardly hilly, and there’s a lot of flat for everyone to catch up again if they get spread out.. but then there’s that kick at the end. Someone who can hammer up a short climb…
EDIT: the letour.fr coverage reckons it’ll be a day for former MTBers – makes sense to be fair.Posted 6 years agobristolbikerMember
Slight hijack – what’s that bike that Chris Boardman is riding when he does the piece-to-camera of the stage finishes on the ITV coverage? It’s de-badged and looks quite ‘aero-road’ – one from next years Boardman range?
EDIT: answered my own question – debadged AirTT-9.8 by the looks of itPosted 6 years ago
Did anyone see this? Just heard them talking about it in commentary. I missed the sprint cause my internet went..Posted 6 years agoMrOvershootSubscriber
Ridden loads round that area as my mother lived just outside Carhaix (tomorrows start town) for 10 years, the riding is tougher than it looks on the profile as you dont have much flat its either up or down.
Bit sad she moved back to the UK as it was a great way of having cheap holidays 🙁Posted 6 years ago
I love the ‘bicycles’ that the little towns and villages do with hay bales and tractors and stuff. Just bin one with loads of people linking arms being the ‘wheels’. Fantastic. Must take a lot of thought and planning to do them. Some beautiful flower arrangements and that too. So nice to see the people of a nation making such an effort for a cycle race. Biggup an nuff respek to the French dem.Posted 6 years ago
Bertie’s just pushing Cuddle to breaking point. Cuddle won’t be able to keep that up, and will suffer later on in the Tour. Bertie will then drop him. I can’t see anyone other than Andy Schleck staying with Bertie. Wiggo can’t, simple as that.
Just a shame that 2 dopey drugged cheats
Yawn. Enough already, eh? Don’t hear you moaning about that other dopey druggie cheat David Millar being in 4th place…. 🙄
Be nice to see The God of Thunder win the green jersey again, instead of The Spoilt Toddler. That will annoy many on here which can only be a good thing.Posted 6 years agotangMember
well the last 2 days its clashed with scooby do, my daughters fav show and the only tv she watches, made it to 15k to go today, fired up the laptop and missed it al by the time it loaded! to add insult to injury my other daughter is on a school trip in normandy and has turned down an option to see the tour tomorrow!!Posted 6 years ago
The Spanish steak looked a bit panicked today. Great ride by Cadel and Thor. Shaping up to be a brilliant tour. Surprisingly normal interview by Cadel too.
Did like how Thor changed out of his team kit and into his world champs kit, including bibs, before going onto the podium. Casually Deliberate to the max.Posted 6 years agomuppetWranglerMember
Great to see Evans get the win. I can’t warm to him as a personality but I do have the greatest respect for him as a clean athlete and think he deserves a bit of good form and some good luck to go with it.
Contador looked like he’d overcooked it with the first acceleration, can’t actually ever remember seeing him pull that grimace face that he did today. He normally looks like he’s not actually making any effort, could be the affect of his new low protein diet.
Funny that little arm in the air thing he did too. ‘Yeah look at me I’m thePosted 6 years ago

I take a position of believing in the athletes performance until there is sufficient doubt to make me think otherwise and I’ve never seen or heard anything suspicious on Evans.
Obviously it would be very virtually impossible to prove conclusively that anyone hasn’t taken a banned substance but I’d put Evans very, very, very low down on the sliding scale of grey area athletes.Posted 6 years agoianvMember
Why cant people give Contador a break. The amount of drugs in his system was nothing and would have made no difference performance wise. The farting around with hearings is really not his fault and he will likely get let off anyway when they get round to it.
Even if he was doping (which I doubt), its not like he is the only one.Posted 6 years ago
I don’t like him cos I don’t like his media personality – doping scandals aside. I appreciate he may be a nice bloke really but how are us fans meant to make a decision on who to support? Plus he’s won what, three times now, so my natural tendency is to favour the plucky underdog, the Brit or the patient waiter-in-wings.
That’s funny though regardless 🙂Posted 6 years ago
