Tour de France 2017 – The second rest day thread
Millar’s Tour team. Did he say 100% clean? Starting with Indurain and Ulrich?!
No, he said no matter what their background, he would put them into a 100% clean race.
I’d put Millar into a fantasy team any day, he was far and away the best road captain in the last 10 years at least.
But then I’d also have Armstrong in a fantasy team as well… 😉Posted 7 months agocrashtestmonkeyMember
Team of the week: Got to be Sunweb
Got to be Ag2R, surely?! Smashing it on the front of the peloton and the breakaway simultaneously one day, then doing a full “sky train” when Froome had a broken spoke the next? They used to be a joke of a team but those performances where the match for any dominant big bucks outfit.
And any team that employs ‘Bling’ is automatically exempt from Team Of The Week 😈Posted 7 months agojambalayaSubscriber
Brailsford and Sky can speak or not to whom they want. Just because you are a journalist does not give you an automatic right to attend their press events. I doubt Sky care much about Brailsford ognoring a competitor, as long as he is speaking to Sky Sports they’ll be happy enoughPosted 7 months agoslowpuncheurMember
Point taken on Matthews. Doesn’t quite have the talent to justify the arrogance. I think thats balanced out by good guys like Ten Dan, Barguil and Geschke though. True, AG2R have animated things and Bardet looks at his best ever but given the numbers up the road on a couple of stages, I just think they haven’t maximised their opportunities as much as they could have. Worst team: UAE? Taking off where Lampre left off?Posted 7 months agojimwMember
At the end of his article in the Sunday Times yesterday, David Walsh compared Brailsford to Trump…. The man with all the power but whom no one respects ( I’m paraphrasing as I don’t have the article to hand)
Jamba, the ST is a Murdoch paper so I guess he’ll have to talk to Walsh, won’t he?Posted 7 months ago
