Former CX racer, now recovered. I spend too much time and money on bikes.

    I think Ineos badly missed Ganna and/or Dennis, and I still don't see why Bernal did the Giro and not the Tour. I still think if we see a full-strength Ineos team next year, along with a full-strength JV, then it will be much closer (assuming the main guys can stay upright). Lots of ifs, granted, but it does seem like the stars aligned for Pog this year. Take nothing away from him - he was clearly the strongest rider in the race - but everything just fell into place in a way I'm not sure it will again.

    I'd have thought Cav has to do 1 more season/Tour. The prospect of Merckx's record, and the salary he can doubtless command now, makes it a straightforward decision, I'd have thought.

    I have nothing against Froome, unlike some, but I think he should retire at this point tbh. He's not getting any younger and it's a bit sad to see him a shadow of the rider he once was.

    Hi. Looking for a fairly narrow width saddle, ideally 130-135mm, so Arione or similar. Centre cut out and reasonable condition preferred. Ta.

    Even if the tech did exist, the amount of people who'd have to be in on any mechanical doping project of that nature is huge and just one person spilling it would be catastrophic. I can't see it.

    There have certainly been some eyebrow raising performances and it's been a slightly odd tour in a lot of ways.

    Go on a bike ride after snorting a fat line. No offense meant, just try it.

    And pls post your heart rate data. Bit like that channel 4 doc ages ago where they got the presenters to take various things then assessed their effect. But in this case do 0.5 then a 25k TT.

    Have you tried holding down the junction box button for 5 seconds while spinning the cranks?
