    I’m not MVDP though by a long stretch

    Who is?

    And an established team leader has a lot more leeway than a neo-pro.

    That depends on the rider. A lot are happy to use whatever they are issued by the team, but many will try and use their preferred equipment that’s been rebadged.

    Cavendish beginning to show some form, finished third today behind Jakobsen and Bennett.

    Don’t discount Gasparotto, he’s in good form and is something of an Amstel Gold specialist.

    I think Bennett will be able to choose which team he rides for next season. I’m not sure he’d choose DD.

    Dimension Data are having a(nother) shocker of a season though. They seem to have a particular talent for taking promising riders and making them look mediocre.

    As I understand it, he’s free of glandular fever but is coming back to racing gradually to ensure it doesn’t flare up again. The focus is on the Tour, assuming he’s healthy.

    Putting aside the porn issue, the privacy concerns here are enough to make any sensible government set this policy aside. Giving porn companies a large database of the personal data of a substantial portion of the UK population is not going to end well. There’s also the issue of effectively restricting access to something that is legal for adults, and the fact that any site that has content that is below a threshold of 33% is exempt. It’s just such a poorly thought out policy.

    The idea that this will protect children is laughable.

    But my favourite bit of today’s announcement is that the department responsible for this broke GPDR rules by sending out an email with the recipients email addresses visible to all.
