    Interesting to see how Sagan v Matthews v van Aert goes in the green jersey competition.

    Van Aert has never done a race this long before and I assume he’ll have team duties.

    As a Lancs fan who’s seen some bad collapses in the last few seasons, I gave them a 50/50 chance of winning when they came out for the second innings.

    On a similar note, big lol at Mali:

    There appears to be some info on Diavolo bikes here:

    I think you’d struggle to make it a cross bike because of the calliper brakes. They clog with mud and dirt. Cross bikes use cantilevers or discs for that reason.

    I follow him on Strava. He still rides but he’s not racing.

    Yes. They couldn’t have been better.

    They reckon it’ll get dumped after being used in a crime.

    Had my moped nicked by a lad who threatened to stab me this afternoon. Broad daylight in south Manchester. Fuming.

    I keep my wits about me at night but no inkling I’d get targeted in the day.

    Just spent £200 on a service.

    Barguill’s problems ran a bit deeper than him being a diva, I recall. He was homesick and isolated at Sunweb. I don’t think he’s ever learned to cope with the pressure.

    I’ll try and find the article where I read this.

    Doing it over three weeks seems to have been a problem for Pinot.

    He’s 29 now so if he’s going to step up, it needs to happen soon.

    I’d completely forgotten Kenny Elissonde was at Sky until I just looked at the start list. They don’t let him out if his box often do they?

    We’ll get an idea at Tour de Suisse but it’s mad to rule out a former winner.
