Well, as for Indurain's doping...
Let's see... Riis dropped him easily when Riis was really "prepared".
Rominger smashed his hour record when Rominger was really "prepared".

So, Big Mig was actually a weak climber and a weak TT rider! ;)

Pozzovivo, one of the few people that actually looks worse than Froome on a bike!
Hahahahaha.

To be fair Pozzovivo is like 150cms, difficult to look good on bike at that "height". :lol:

Astana, in search of funding and sponsors, start winning all races they enter.. Vino working his magic?
But I could be wrong

quick question for you, euro dudes - with a nice afternoon like today, do you rather stay home and watch the race or go do some riding?

Do some riding, and replay the race on Eurosport OnDemand when I get back.

How is this even a question? :lol:

Watch the race slowly getting ready for a ride...then out on the bike pretty much as soon as the finish. Doesn't get dark until 8PM now.

Vice versa on the weekend when it is ride first then home for a beer and the race.

Yes, go for a ride, Eurosport on Demand is brilliant nowadays. You can watch the entire stage anytime it suits.

One of life's great pleasures in the summer is going for a long bike ride, arriving home incredibly tired and then collapsing on the sofa to watch the TdF.

Yes, now that Eurosport has understood that they don't put the race winner on the thumbnail of the race replay like they used to do =0

It's still social media curfew until you've watched the race, I enjoyed 2 very calm days until I could finally watch Roubaix on Tuesday!!!

vod is cool, but I find it hard not to learn about the results before watching a replay. and when I do I lose almost all the interest in a race. as for riding after the race - that's an option as long as I've at least ~2h before it gets dark, which is around 7pm now

Either watch the final first (all you have to see for todays race) and ride after it, or ride and come back in time for the final. For races like Flanders I prefer to watch the start, ride and come back in time for the muur. But at the time of Flanders, the weather is rarely as nice as it is now.
