    Nice shot.


    What a final. I feel gutted for Alaphilippe. Too bad there's no Paris-Roubaix on Sunday. They probably would have gone another round.

    The white cycling trousers are more off-putting.

    Also nice to see:

    MVdP: I think you won.
    WVA: Really? I don't think so.

    I think I prefer the Autumnal scenes in Spain and Italy to their Summer equivalents.

    I fear Spain might be a little too autumnal.
    There was snow on some of the cols last week.

    And Froome’s out the back already, must be tough to have such a public humiliation on day one.

    Also, can we just give up on Pinot as a race winning candidate at this point please.

    😅 yeah, they do look a little snowy. I liked Sunday’s Giro stage with the colour in the trees and a dusting of snow on the mountain caps. Stelvio looks as though it can be cleared but the riders are concerned about windchill on the way down…

    A rivalry that’s goes back a fair while- look at their little faces!

    What's wrong with the sock length? WvA's too short?

    Those long white monstrosities, which also look too long to be UCI legal

    Yeah, understand there’s a slight performance advantage there, but I’m not really on board with road cycling’s long sock fetish. It looks like they’re pedalling in a pair of skinny wellies.

    At the bounds of acceptable length imo and WvA's are at the bounds of acceptable shortness. Anything longer or shorter = triathlete nonsense.

    White socks are faster.

    White shoes are faster, socks should match the frame, bar tape should match the shoes, shoes should match the saddle, frame should match the jersey and shorts should be black, it’s really quite simple

    Rohan. Dennis.

    ... can't believe we're on the eve of the first Scottish GT win. Fingers crossed. Tomorrow will be intense.

    The Zwift racing earlier in the season came in handy! Very impressive.
