Please wait a bit until this shitstorm in a teacup has blown over.

the fears of many about him going too well at Flanders did not come true. he went more or less as in previous editions. he said he´d work for the team.
even if seeing him on the podium would´ve made this pages more entertaining :D

Thomas Geriant withdrew from Catalunya on 25th. He is lacking something from Paris-Nice. He was on better at last years Flanders compared to this year.

Not sure what is up?

The Ohg, I thought you would know what is up. I dont

all I know is whatever placing GerAint would have had on Sunday, that would not be good for you ;)

Before Flanders the plan was that he would only do Flanders and skip Paris-Roubaix

Ah Tenerife, that safe haven from unnecessary distractions like, ooh anti-doping testers, that prevent riders getting a good few weeks training under their belt.

In Sky at the moment they seem to be letting every dog have his day/win
until that dog becomes Dawg that is.

Crowd favorite G speaks. It would back to the track for G if he loses SDB as his supplier.

It shouldn't even need saying, but we all back Dave B 100%!!! I've known him a long time and I wouldn't want anyone else leading @teamsky

Kind of surprised that Sky have not gone for a non English speaking GT winner, but maybe Landa, Henao and others dont fully comprehend Brailsford's 'methods' so this year Thomas has had to step up.

That was a ridiculous display from our trackie Gee. I almost think his support of SDB is because he foresees an eventual vacuum when Froomie leaves the sinking ship (assuming said ship survives).

Agreed. Not saying Quintana is 100% clean, but he's the most robbed rider from the Sky era.
