Tinkov you brilliant troll you. Seeing the kit on the road I notice in the right light, the new kits look the exact same shade of yellow. But it's a fluo color (which you only notice in darker light), so they can't claim it too similar to the yellow jersey. Simply brilliant. :D
Honestly I thought they had switched back to their usual kit. :D

Yep jerseys certainly look better in the pack. Looking forward to comparing them versus the actual yellow jersey tomorrow. Could ASO force further color changes?

Lolz. Surreal that we're now even comparing them on flat stages.
Just admit to being surprised and frightened at Froome's famed sprinting abilities. The man can really do it all.

Rogers looked like a captain today. Always first 15-20 positions and keeping Alberto out of trouble. Very composed , seemingly effortless. I think he is in great shape right now.
Roche showed he's in great shape at Route du Sud. Majka will ride himself into condition for the Alps.

Kiryenka seemed to suffer. Hasn't shown anything this year. I think Kiryenka and Lopez are key figures for team SKY. If they are not in good form, Thomas Nieve and Porte will have to set the pace very early. Or chase depending on race situation.

Tomorrow will be interesting. If the race goes hard and Alberto feels good, he might try something.

Then he beat the current Fleche Wallone winner in an uphill sprint

Honestly, that would make it even more impressive as he's been one of the best at that particular skill for years. In truth, he was on the front chasing Roche for a good while before Mick came around him in the sprint.
It almost sounded like SeriousSam was saying that because Mick beat Valverde he's an okay sprinter. My only point was that he might be a good sprinter uphill...that suits him more. Today he was were he was not because he's an amazing sprinter but because of tactical smartness and some luck.

i just p***ed in my *****t out of fear.

Hail Hitler!!!


Seriously though, a Froome fan should be seriously worried. The team doesnt appear to be string enough. They were not in the front. Kiriyenka, Pate, Xandio is a definite worry.

In the case of TCS, except for Majka (due to obv reasons) everyone else looked pretty strong.

and WTF was Froome doing following rogers' wheels? tht was the dumbest move ever made by a gc rider. Sky's team car is still behind tinkof's car. This is where saxo showed smartness. They used Rogers to get the spot.

it looks as if Froome is destined to crash like the way he did in CD, and blame it for losing the jersey.
