Yeah but it doesnt work so well if the "bad guy" actually wins made double bad by the fact that the British fans are certain that wiggo and froome will split the next 10 tours between themselves.

The story is beginning again, just as it did 14 years ago

Okay, then what's with next year's climbers' course? If ASO wanted Sky to win you'd think they would have added a long flat ITT.

Yes just to add on to the line of people who think ASO has got it all wrong..
Greatest GT rider not getting an invite to the 100th Tour.. mistake.

It has not happened yet and this is probably just part of the Hype machine warming up.. ( i hope)

The Hitch:
“There is no such thing as Evans fans or Schleck fans or whatever.

In this day and age there are only 2 types of cycling fans.

Those who like Contador, and those who don't. “


The Hitch:
Gang. Pfff. Dont insult The Great One.

Contador isn't a gang.

Its a family “

And me of course and sacrifice&hardwork and you
