Bad option. Don't really fancy to talk about someone who's spectacular future is history.

So, for all the jingoists who didn't know who Harry Kane is. He is the top scorer in the whole of Europe for 2017.

I didn't say everyone who hasnt heard of Harry Kane was a jingoist.

You can't really criticise someone just because they haven't heard of someone. But you can have a dig at the few people who were being snidey ***** about it.

it's a wonder no one in the anti-wiggins camp suggested it was fixed by giving chris a double-strength concentration without telling him, so he could blow at near twice the max limit and thereby get the whole jiffy bag thing out of the news....just too bad the timing was a bit long

Dunno is there any other GC winner who goes down as often, in training and in racing like he does? :o :rolleyes:

It seems that there's no deadline for team Sky to deliver the data to the UCI. So Froome is allowed to take part in any race until further news.

Yes, very nice that the Dawg was among the three British nominees
(from a total of six on the men's short-list), but I thought SKY might
get a look in the team category...sadly, they did not. :(

That really is ridiculous if true. There has to be a deadline.

Ulissi must be raging that he didn’t think to just string them along for a few years. “Yeah, I’ll get those lab results to you next week.”
