Too may people want to be special nowadays. Kids who want to be footballers or non-specific 'celebrities'. What kind of aspiration is that?

To be honest, if  I've made it into the daily mail it;s probably going to be for the wrong reasons. n

some of the racism in the NT was awful.

'They couldn't even invent the fucking wheel' was a pretty standard refrain.

Yeah, but they have lived and survived for 40000 years in some of the most inhospitable terrain on the planet. And I know that if crash landed in the outback I would last about 5 mins.

Not sure there is much need for a wheel when you are living with the land in a sustainable way.

I maybe a bit behind you!



Froome had an amazing team around him. The attacks from Pantani / Armstrong back in the day were solo efforts. Froome was supported round the whole tour by an exemplary team. team sky won that tour as much as Chris Froome.

I appreciate the microdosing may well not show up on a biological passport but they are under such scrutiny, and remember there are huge banks of data that we can only speculate on, that I would be very surprised if he was doping.

Good point!  I rode with him for about 4 hours, he gave me a cracking pep talk before I climbed Sa Calobra in 33:27.  I beat him up some climb the next day, he went a little too early.

At least I have something to aim for in 3 weeks time.

Joux fucking plaine!

1 hour 40 for me to get up that twatting hill.



Agree with Roberts 100%. Although froome is a shit liar. "oh yeah I just thought I'd try it out"

Brailsford was much better, "you didn't see that coming, and now doc anyone else. "

Full fucking power. Froome has dominated.

not sure there was any way anoyone could capitlise on that strudders.

Froomey may have been a bit naughty with a pee break a couple of stages back to allow his crashed teammates to catch up.

Quintana is well out of shape.


As for the recognition of sartorial elegance, it could not have come from a better person on this board. I feel honoured.

Looking forward to the etape tomorrow. Got a chalet on route d'avoriaz if grant wants to pop in on his way back to the top.

I'm up in the mountains about 16km from the start. Bit of a mare getting back.

Did 50km today and 1,100m of climbing - can't believe registration was so far away up a hill.

Caught us out. Came over aravis from clusaz, into megeve, and then the relentless hill, not knowing where the end was. I cracked as I ran out of water in megeve. We then had to go back over aravis.


Did 100km and 2500 yesterday. Sports massage today.

Good luck mate. Don't punch any spectators!

Get a nice villa out in the sticks and some guest list for choice parties.  Only way to do it

The guy was carrying a gun. And if the officers believed he was reaching for it, which the video shows, then I think self defence is an argument here

The questions of why he was carrying a gun, and whether he actually was reaching for it, are the more difficult ones to answer.

I'm sorry that seeing a body with bullet wounds is disturbing. It is certainly a powerful image. 

I feel less sure about this than I do about other killings. Ones where they are running away, or have the gun landed on them post mortem.
