Nice article covering the selection for the GB squad at l'Avenir:

Must admit, I don't think it's a good selection and they're catering towards the British Cycling academy too much. While Donaldson is a decent pick, there are many riders who've shown great talent and form this year moreso than Brough and Giddings. Even the likes of Gloag and maybe Hayter have been temperamental this year with the only top consistent one at the moment being Watson.
 


Hell of a stage going on right now in l'Isard. I must say, moving it to September has done the race good. FDJ, Trinity and Jumbo put on the afterburners in terrible rainy, windy weather and it exploded the entire race. The peloton is looking at a 10 minute deficit. Lenny, being his 4 foot 10, 30 kg self missed the break, whereas the likes of Reuben, Staune-Mittet and Oliver Rees did not. Also in this race, somewhere far down the road: Jules Jalabert, the son of Laurent. More of a runner than a cyclist, but he's giving it a crack and will devote himself fully to cycling in 2023.

I can't seem to find him on any start lists...

(And did Lenny shrink?)
