BBC journo David Bond is getting a kicking on Twitter for insulting Cav. Stick him on a Halfords bike and make him climb Box Hill. The public demands rough justice.

Vino still pretends he didn't take drugs ever, Millar admits he did and is very repentant. Many still don't want Millar in there, but if they are to have former-dopers, he's probably the best around.

David Millar tweeted that Cav had the legs to go with the final attack on the climb, but stayed with the team because he thought they could bring it back.

I was standing on sawyers hill and it was disheartening seing Cancellara roll down after the break had passed with his right hand on the bars : (

Even though he's clearly in pain the first thing I noticed were those legs. Just look at them! Damn, he's not even pushing it and every fibre of those muscles is alive.

Is the womens course the same as the mens? Will Nicole Cooke defend her title or will someone else come through. Will the womens race be as team focused as the mens or will we try different tactics?

My wife is finding it hilarious that someone from Kazakhstan won. She has these visions of Borat on a bike in his mankini I think

Good ole Cav! Good on you mate!!!

Gave a reporter what he deserved when asked if his performance in the Olympic road race was related to fatigue from the Le Tour?

'Don't ask stupid questions! How much do you know about cycling?' was his reply...

Classic!

those who wonder whether the magnificent Team Sky mission to win the Tour de France has had an impact on the Olympic medal quest.
Even if this were true, this could only come from someone who doesn't care about cycling just wants national glory. Who gives a fuck about another olympic gold when there was a chance to win Le Tour for the first time ever?

Our tactics were obvious and no plan B meant Team GB were easily beatable, only non-cycling fans couldn't see this.

Team Sky / Team GB's mandate is to win National medals, not the tour.

Arguably, it was the reusing of obvious Tour tactics that left the team open to attack, and ultimately medal free.

Landis has surfaced to praise Vino's victory. Not really the ideal chappie to be patting you on the back on the occasion. He said:
Quote:
"If Vino says 'it's a victory for clean cycling' he'd be my hero. Alternatively if he'd said 'Fuck every single motherfucking one of you' that would work too."
Thanks, Landis. That really helps.

David Bond is a Millwall fan and that makes him by default a racist and a grade A cunt. For a sports editor to come up with such tripe is astonishing.

Lol!

Couldn't agree more... Bond is a Millwall fan... very, very disappointing to hear this... Millwall fan and sports reporter are two things that just don't go together...

Third puncture already, too spread out to be sabotage, just usual crap on the roads.
