Matt would say he pronounces the teams and the riders names how *they* pronounce them...

For sure we still need to see how he does in Tireno but if you were betting on the favourite today?


If 'he' means Cav, then apparently 'he' can't win it anymore. It's not his race. He's given up trying :wink:

He is looking very skinny... But I'm not sure going on T-A form will be that useful considering his past purposeful misdirection.

Could have done with a few more hills in Qatar really.

That..........is making the effort and fair play, they don't all do that, and I can get used to it.

It winds Oc up tho'. It's not good for his blood pressure.

Comrades OC & ATC. Tabling an emergency motion, if that's OK? Chairman Phil must conduct a surprise inspection of the glue factory. He makes ITV Tour highlights (2012 great homework for the Comrade Froome: Can He Win Congress, in June) are unwatchable. The customary bizarre gardening accident should do the trick.

[Aware that this is not a new problem, but I'm a Eurosport man and was genuinely shocked at PL's race-craft, never mind the LA scandal.]

Amazing to have a race full of real gentlemen today, who neutralised a close race so I could rejoin the group after crashing. Thanks to all

Aside from the shocking revelation that OPQS budgetary limitations force Cav to slum it with a Blackberry, I love this aspect of the sport. It gets even better when Karma bites those who do not follow the honour code: Movistar at Tour last year for example.

Cav hasn't crashed - he's doing some burpees to give the others a chance (it didn't work)

I thought he was doing a bit of PR in the host nation and kneeling to Mecca.
