Damn. AG2R might have played their card too early - everyone will be watching them now!

"Just interested as ironically one of the characteristics of sociopathy is making unqualified diagnoses of sociopathy in others"

As long as people are talking about DB's behavior at a press conference, they're not talking about Wiggins, Jiffy bags, TUE's, Landa vs. Froome and so on. Well played Sir DB.

BTW did anyone manage to find pics of Kwiato being the domestique of the year carrying like 15 bidons at stage 15?

That was hilarious. Frankly I'm amazed that a Castelli jersey was strong enough to handle it. Maybe they get a specially reinforced one on the days it's their job? :P

Also reminded me of Cav very conspicuously doing it a few years back when he really needed to convince the team to chase and set up a sprint a day or two later...

Wow, almost perfect loop! Towards the end of the loop he passes a lot of AG2R guys. It would be perfect if he would only pedal past them in the gif. :)

Lance made an interesting point in his latest podcast - he only got one puncture during his 7 TDFs.

Given this, it's odd that Froome has had so many issues with his bikes this Tour and other races. The gear isn't radically different to other teams (other than the O rings), so why does it keep happening?

I don't think Sky uses the same Continental tires that the other pro teams use, the Pro LTD. I think they use the Competition.... this article is old though, not sure if it's changed since then.

Pretty sure Sky also using latex pro version Competition ALX in a 25 day to day, same as everyone. Conti really need to sell those, they are great tubs. Maybe they're just a 'halo' thing and too expensive to produce and make margin on.

Stages are ok, Lance does have a different take and he's been in so many situations it's interesting to hear. His 're-acceptance' is b/c people realize now that prob all top sportsman dope in some context so he gets more slack. When his story broke it was an outlier rather than norm.

I don't condone what Lance did, but i enjoyed his daily commentary. The Tour de Pharmacy cameo was just hilarious.

re: punctures

didn't USPS store tires in some humid belgian basement for months or years to make them more 'whatever' thus puncture resistant?
