They had similar signs last year, with some riders having fun with it. Kwaitkowski held up a sign next to Froome saying 'I'm beating this guy' or something similar, while Chavez said he was aiming for the green jersey. :lol:


Good :D

For a moment, I thought something crazy had happened on their mountain training camp :p

Well, he could get it if Gaviria and Groenewegen don't sprint well on the first stage.

I hope that doesn't happen. Pinot has been close to the podium recently it's just illness, or TT issues he has to work on. If he does leave to get a fresh approach I hope he goes to another team. Sky already have plenty of talent, let's even it out a bit.

Cav's pre tour stage by stage preview is brilliant. Half of the "ones to watch" are him, Froome and Thomas and then the rest are basically just gaviria and Sagan with a handful of others.

(Yeah, I'm slow, but, well…)

Something I kinda just realised (or maybe I realised it at the team presentation, I don't know) is that Trek are wearing their all-white kits again.
However, they didn't make a big deal out of it before the start.
Aka The Ginger One.
