    Never thought I'd see the day - Amazing work. Order placed.

    Bit of a dredge on this...

    I'd be happy to see a 10 min video on just the internal gearing
    mechanism

    It's surprising he's not a bit more upfront about the fact it's based around a Shimano Alfine hub thats been tucked into the frame - that's why it was easy to go from 8 to 11 speed.

    Would still be interesting to see what he had to do to get the whole system working through the swinging arm, but there are moments in the video that would suggest he had created this magical 'epicyclic gearbox' with up/down backwards/stationary shifting, when that's clearly not the case.

    Still love a Millyard video. All the stuff he does is mind blowing and the videos are lovely things on their own.

    Great stuff today though. It was yesterday that really had me on the edge of my seat. When he got home level on time I kind of knew he'd get it done and Jai had blown it. Was more releived when it all played out ok!

    Amazing performance by the team though. I don't have much time for Brailsford, but the way he described getting back to 'racing' rather than dominating, and that might be the Ineos way now has me looking forward to next year already.

    Love it. However i'd like to point out we're almost over the line with the forum caps and you're about to change the colour. This could put us back a decade!

    Are they on the cusp of their most successful Grand Tour? If Tao gets it's done today and Ganna mauls everyone in the TT they will have -

    Winner GC.
    7 stage wins.
    Pink Jersey at the end of the first and last day.
    Win young rider comp.
    Win team classification.

    Can't remember a better one team haul than that in a GT.

    While handled badly, sometimes creating a real shit show is the only way to effect change if the other option of quietly complaining has not worked.

    Just noticed it's a sprint stage in the Vuelta today too. It will be quite nice to just watch the 4 min highlights on youtube for a change. The last few weeks has been a heavy work load and i'm thankful for this extra rest day.

    So they rolled out of town on their bikes, with the plan to then get back on the buses for 100km. As you'd imagine its now chaos as all the riders stand around in the rain waiting for the buses to come back, as they'd all set off for the finish already.
