Saw JT and a lady, Mrs. JT (?), being interviewed by Ned. Waggins had nothing to say though.
Will a meeting betwixt Wiggo and Waggins happen?  ???

Fame at last!

Mrs JT, Waggins and I were interviewed live three times and another time for a prerecored bit. All because of Ted/Waggins of course. Later this morning we hope to introduce Waggo to Wiggo.

Great opening stage yesterday - plenty of drama - and a belting ride by G to get the White jersey.

HTC for the win today I think.

"Gahhh.... Why didn't that spectator take down twat face Evans ffs?!"

Pity you don't like Evans, IMO he's one of the most determined, gutsy riders in the peleton who has been dogged by bad luck in recent years.
Remember his puncture at a decisive point on one of the climbs the other year.
Yesterdays fantastic ride, getting approx a minute and a half on Contador, plus a very strong team, plus it's probably his last chance to win, he certainly will be giving his all again.

Opps, hadn't realised that him and Wiggo had actually been involved in the second crash within the last 3 km thus giving them the same time as the winner a 1.20 advantage over Contador.

Totally agree.  His decisive year was when he won the Worlds.  He made a lot of friends and admirers from his gutsy riding that year.  He also honoured the rainbow jersey in many people's eyes ( those in the know I mean ).  I hope he does well this year so he can prove to himself alone that he is a great bike rider.

The highlights show of late has been very well edited I thought.  I particularly enjoyed the final images with the music they chose.  AC/DC for Cav and someone else tonight for Thor - but both brilliant for the pictures I was watching.  Well done ITV.

Agreed. Getting a bit tired of ITV4 (and others, notably Top Gear) using Daft Punk's Tron soundtrack though.
