Weirdly Katie's own account is she dislocated her ankle, broke her tib & fib, and tore a bunch of ligaments.

Hopefully those putting her back together know the difference between a broken ankle and a broken leg.
 
I always thought she retired too early. She did some other things like coaching and gravel bike, because she was tired of the road cycling routine. She might still come back at a high level.
And I don't disagree, but she retired because she was spent in terms of motivation and energy

She might well come back at a high level but I'm not sure what she achieves from it, unless to prove she retired too soon

Big news. That good from a selfish POV. I wonder how much of the same he will bring to the table at TV2 - I assume his work will be a bit shorter and appeal a bit more to the casual while still keeping his DNA of a very nerdy approach to the sport.

In a response to a question on his last live blog for Feltet today, he said that he will keep his thoroughness and that that was a necessity for him to consider working for them.

It doesn't seem like a very logical fit but great for him if TV2 are up for it as I assume they will pay him quite a bit more than Feltet could.

A possible change in stage 1's parcours?

According to reports by Sporza, in recent days, this particular region of Italy has been battered by heavy downpours, resulting in some severe flooding in the area. In some places, there has been more than 100 millimetres of rain in the last few days, with the roads between kilometres 63 and 73 of the expected stage 1 profile of the 2024 Tour de France being especially badly affected.

Is that supposed to be centimeters? 100 millimeters is only like 4 inches, not too much for a 4 day period.

100 centimetres would be almost the average annual amount of rainfall for the region in the span of 4 days. A) that's almost certainly impossible, and B) if it somehow did happen, we would be talking about a natural disaster with likely thousands of casualties.
 
The Kings Cup Gravel festival, which hosted the British Gravel Championship has been forced to cancel due to the monetary demands of Forestry England for hosting the event, the British Gravel Championships will now be held in Scotland at Galloway forest park.

It becoming more of a problem for various activities, Forestry England , via Forestry Commission, budget being squeezed by Government with emphasis on their generating more of their own revenue.
