    If you're operating as a business, why should you be exempt of fees for handling the rubbish your business generates?

    I’m travelling back from Finland, so have only seen a single report in the Guardian. From that, Hinault seems not to understand the rules of the sport.

    Didn’t realise he’d been left off the Tour team. Wow.

    Rumour has it that he’s off to Lotto-Soudal to replace Greipel.

    . Or genuinely indignant about the perceived lack of consistency in treatment between riders.

    What inconsistency? Froome has a right to due process like anyone else. I don’t see anyone complaining that Samuel Sanchez hasn’t been sanctioned yet, and his case was a) before Froome’s and b) for a banned substance not a specified substance.

    Riders tend to be supportive of their own, which Hinault seems to have forgotten.

    I know some have spoken out on Froome’s case, but I think the majority accept that he has a right to due process and understand that it could easily be them in a similar position.

    Why? It might not be for you, but why degenerate something that attracts a huge field and worldwide attention?

    I think it is closer to cx as it was originally intended than today’s version.

    Either way, good luck and enjoy it (as much as you can).

    Different incident.

    Not that you’re far off the truth on racism in pro-cycling, sadly.

    Either Castroviejo or a road captain like Rowe or Knees, someone who can make decisions on the road to respond to the race situation.
