:surprised: SuperG joins Christophe Riblon! Another trackie prevails!oldcrank said:I always love it when trackies do well on the road, whether it is
monuments, classics, grand tour podiums or stages. If a track
rider wins on the Alpe tomorrow, and I am not really expecting
that to happen, it won't be the first time. A great rider that has
won a silver in the points race in the world championships and
has ridden the Team Pursuit for his nation at the Euros, World
Cup and Olys also has two Tour stage wins on two epic climbs.
That's if you consider Ax 3 Domaines and Alpe d'Huez epic.
edit: I almost forgot he also has a madison silver at the worlds.
And our Super-G has a madison silver from the worlds as well,
to go with all his Olympic and world champs team pursuit golds.
roundabout said:Sky has a problem? Thomas seems like the strongest rider in the race. That's a nice problem to have. After today he should ride his own race without looking at Froome.
SeriousSam said:Already a legendary Tour climber. With today's stage win, he has equaled the tally of Contador.

However, if he cracks it would surely make for a more interesting third week.
I wonder if Geraint is still listening to "Don't Let The Kidsoldcrank said:Well, she's not from Wales like SuperG but Julia Jacklin
hails from down in New South Wales and her 2016 disc
"Don't Let The Kids Win" (no offense to Egan I'm sure)
has a lovely track "Coming Of Age" that G might enjoy:
Yeah now I'm alright, I'm doing fine
But I'll be pushing up that hill until I get what's mine
Yeah now I'm gonna learn this new stage
Didn't see it coming, my coming of age
A nice description of stages 11 and 12 Julia, very nice.
So is this art imitating life, or is it sport imitating art?
