    Sweet! Looking forward to it, wish Landa was riding it having not ridden the Tour

    The Vuelta thread in general is going to confuse me

    Off to look for a highlight reel of Kiriyenka, crushing people implacably.

    Should do, and Chavanel is decent in aITT, may have misread, but Bardet has been saying he doesn't like it so he hasn't trained at the discipline much. He lost more time in the TTs than he he lost the Tour by. Sane for Pinot in the Giro, lost over four minutes to Dumoulin in the time trials.

    Just reading some frightening figures from the French: there is a single French win in ITT at world Tour level since 2000, and the last French win in a TT at the TdF was 32 years ago. That's fucking shocking, is it because there's no panache in a time trial?

    Oh and it may have been Kimmage: he flat out asked Brailsford in 2013 or 2014 in front of EBH at a press conference why someone who once was described as the new Merckx was crap now.

    Who knows. EBH was very good in his first few years at Sky, then he just stopped winning in 2013 and 2014. Perhaps it was because Sky were a bit crap at the classics, perhaps because Sagan emerged as an even better all-round talent. Some athletes are phenomenal when young and then just seem to lose their way.

    Yeah but will Sunweb go to the Tour with Dumoulin targeting yellow and Matthews targeting green? If so unless Dumoulin is ridiculously powerful they will struggle to match Sky. Its not hard to suss out Sky: they just don't fuck about, no-one in breakaways hunting stages, no-one targeting green or polkas, just focused on yellow. The other teams struggle to match that professionalism and single-mindedness. They want stage wins and having riders in the break.

    I hope to fuck Dan Martin either leaves Quickstep or gets much better support than he did this year. Quickstep may not have Kittel next year but the likelihood they will have Gaviria, which once again they will target stages.
