TTs are only in grand tours to satisfy the bike industry sponsors' desire to show off their shoopy doo doo wop tt bikes to the hordes of well in funds dentists eyeing up their next £400 sprint triathlon event.

Come on, TV's G Imlach!  You have no excuse for continuing to refer to the team of E Bernal & G Thomas as "T $ky" during the highlights programme.

There are 9 of them...

Tho the locals like to tease the tourists that there's a great restaurant in the 10th ball...

It’s a pity that a lot of them end up with such shabby positions.  Jumbo have been working with Dan Bigham, multiple national champ and aero specialist.   See the difference ?

All of the above should be moved to the Tour de France 2019 thread.  :-D

Pacing was forbidden until 1925 in the Tour, and in 1927 and 1928 it consisted of all team time trial stages.

Just seen this on the BBC text reporting:

11:44
<<Post update
The peloton is now about two minutes and 20 seconds down but Tony Martin, who is sat at the front is literally operating as a one-man band stringing out the riders behind him.

It's some sight but it looks quite blustery out there. This looks like it could be a tiring day. Albeit the German isn't even gasping for breath.>>

Do you think they'll show it on the highlights this evening?

Please Mr Producshunz, I has been looking at teh wellyvision adverts and it appears that if you buy an electronic pelican machine then there are two wimmins for every mans who will use it so by buying one I can get off with many cycling wimmins. Is this true?

I took my Peloton bike to Europe and used it on the balcony of our $2,000/night Airbnb and honestly I felt like I was flying over London, you should try it

Enjoy it while it lasts, hen, it's not going to be Europe for long.

No, TV's G Imlach, champagne-spraying was originated by Dan Gurney after he and AJ Foyt won Les Vingt-Quatres Heures du Mans in 1967, mostly to get Henry Ford II wet.  Nowt to do with F1 save that they slavishly copied it.  Honestly...
