(Armchairclimber clearly tried to be funny him/herself)


And you automatically presume that all Danes must have the same sense of humour?


Ehm.....no.

But when trying so hard to make funny remarks (which I think some of them are, but you try too hard IMO), you in this case blatantly missed a fellow posters try to do the same.

Apparently ToS find it funny, but my opinion respectfully matters as well. I would have told a person IRL the same, if I had to endure his/her company a lot. Nothing disrespectful, just stating my opinion (and you've been called out at least once earlier to my recollection)


How am I to know whether or not Armchairclimber owns a Citroën DS? Or calls his wife his "DS"? Or if there even is a model of the Citroën brand called a DS? Or whether Armchairclimber even has a wife?

I basically went; "Oh, he was talking about his car, now I feel silly for presuming he was referring to his wife... Hang on! His car was thinking?"


Chill mateys. My initial comment was me being an armchairDS as opposed to climber. I was offering my inexpert advice to quickstep. They should have listened... Jungels did monster work that he could have put into a break instead of leading the line for his hapless sprinter.

I picked up and ran with the RedHeadDane line about DS being my wife... DS on the Citroën actually meant Goddess.

I admit that this was obtuse rather than funny. Citroën SM might have been funnier... But probably only to me.

Anyway, jokey Danes are fine by me.

Greipel has been climbing quite well the past weeks. I wonder if he has a chance.


Eh? What is this?


a mistake by oddscheckers. Or with Betfair's Api. Those odds don't exist

André is losing pure speed but gaining in strenght, I wouldn't be surprised if he pulls off a Cipo

That looks like a kinda sad field for MSR honestly. So gutted that Gaviria misses out, but you gotta stay on your bike, thats a big part of cycling. Its not him being unlucky at this point...

This time, it's 100% his fault, just like MSR '16. Do you know if Argentina was a misfortune or his own fault as well?

10 km ITT - wide straight roads, chance of some drizzle - G or maybe Dennis.

I have a feeling that Tony Martin is in some decent shape. Maybe he can roll back the years a bit? However, the win will probably be contested between BMC riders.

Anything but a Rohan Dennis win would be a big surprise. There are a lot of candidates for top5 tho. Kwiatkowski vs Caruso will be close I think, but still the Pole should be ahead for a couple of seconds.

How are the weather conditions compared to last year? Same wind?

Küng was involved in the big crash on stage 2 and dislocated his shoulder, that will probably be a problem on the TT bike.
