"Sutton is said to have worked within a 'power pocket' without real oversight.
Although he successfully coached riders to medal success, he lacked the necessary skill-set to lead the world-class programme, said the review."

With the way all of the main guys have looked so far this year it could be a case of the tallest dwarf winning .

Aru looked really really strong for a guy coming back from injury. Really like him at 20/1 on this course. Think Porte has peaked too early and Froome looked really weak by his standards last week. Only 36km of ITT also really hurts him.

Yeah, I thought Aru might be value at that kind of price, especially if Astana can keep two guys in GC contention deep into the mountains.

Tony Martin was pretty hyped to get a German yellow jersey in Germany on the first day, couldn't do it though.

Went all the way to Düsseldorf to watch the Grand Depart and didn't see a bicycle all weekend. Damn Germans and their bars which never close.

Yeah the atmosphere yesterday in düsseldorf was super intensive despite the rain. My brother was like: give the germans a beer and they will celebrate every sporting event even when it rains like ****.

Sad story, roglic fell basically right in front of me

FYP. Drinking in public no issue, curfew unheard of
In Cologne festivities (Karneval, football team / FC shipped something) regularly block out whole streets and the street trains that go through, never an issue either

Sagan!

Of course the one stage I miss he wins.

Was just looking ahead, and stage 5 ends on a 20% grade.

I guess they will move Sagan a few places back. Shoud be the same with Greipel and demare. Greipels mistake started a domino effect, everyone has to move half a meter to the right, so in the end no space left for cav.
'The elbow of Sagan came after initial contact & didnt touch cav but the damage was down' to use Robbie McEwens words.
