  • So, mad props to @KHilgendorf who did what Ineos could not: Repeat as Fantasy TDF champion. That lycra fetish comes in handy at least once a year. Special mention to @Jennifer Post who by my informal count has managed to lose most of her riders to …
  • Stage 21 - Champs-pagne D'Élysée I've had the opportunity to bike on the Champs several times, including a European Vacation-style run through the roundabout at the Arc de Triomphe. Unfortunately I was doing it on a CitiBike-type rental. The hill i…
  • Stage 20 - TT Three jerseys for Slovenia was not unexpected, but the distribution might be. That was one of the craziest displays of climbing I have ever seen. How do you put 1:21 on Tom Dumoulin in a 36 km TT? Huge kudos to Richie Porte. That wa…
  • (Roglic and Pogacar still on the climb) What the hell is happening here?
  • (Roglic and Pogacar on the climb) Holy sh**!
  • (Dumoulin hits 5.6 km to go mark) Hmmm.
  • Stage 1- Ronde van Champagnole So I was the Tour de France and the Tour of Flanders broke out. That was like an ultimate Classics break. GVA, Trentin, Stuyven, Naesen, Rowe, Sagan, etc. What a finish. The winner's post-race interview was along the …
  • Stage 18 - I think. I've lost track. Last alpine stage today, last chance for any real moves until the time trial. I was pleased to see a few of the attacks go. I was quite surprised to see some of the guys get completely shelled, but man alive t…
  • Stage 17 - Queen Stage That hill was crazy. It was never consistent. Went from flat to vertical to moderate to flat to down to... You get the idea. Hard to get a rhythm. This is where that power meter comes in handy. I appreciate Alaphillippe show…
  • Stage 16 - Episode III - Revenge of the Bora First: no positive tests. UCI showing some skillz at testing... Second: Hell yeah! BERNAL! Just kidding. He rode the bus and picked up bottle today. I had this Bora guy pegged for a stage win this yea…
  • I'll stick with who I have. I'm still waiting for TJ Van Garderen's break through performance to rocket me into 8th place. You might enjoy this Reddit: https://www.reddit.com/r/TejayInYellow/
  • My first thought was wondering if Jungels had a tri background. Second thought was it was good timing for rest day swap. If he rode for AG2R they would have duct taped him back onto his bike and had him ride between two teammates for the rest of th…
  • At least there's a video of why my road captain for today abandoned. Poor guy. Yeah. Ouch. There should be some kind of bonus for when that happens. Remember you can swap him out.
  • Stage 15 - Colombier Tough day for the French teams and riders. Par for the course this tour. Average speed after two hours was 50 km/h. Insane considering what was to come. The break took a long time to get established, and it was small, meaning …
  • Stage 14 - 'Flat' stage I'm writing this about 20 minutes before the sprinters will straggle in. The winner crossed the line a couple of minutes ago. Loto will be hoping for a generous time cut today. It was a fast stage so they should get it. …
  • @Brew_Tri - Trying to justify being one of the 9 views on that post, I see...
  • Stage 13 - Hills! Rigoberto Uran could be sitting in Roglic's lap and still no one would talk about him. He's like the invisible man on this Tour, stalking his way to a podium... I think he's en route to another second place. The sprinters looked…
  • Stage 12 - Have we forgotten about how boring stage 11 was yet? I'm glad that there is some chatter in this thread, but that one little love tap does not make up for the fact that Stage 11 was a total dud. That might have been the most boring road …
  • Stage 11 - Late Update Sagan was relegated for gently massaging WVP's ribcage with his elbow and shoulder today. ETA: brain fart on WVP. Obviously WVA as @Rash correctly noted below.
  • Stage 11 - A legit sprint stage. Just a few quotes today: "Bonjour, mon nom est MATTHIEU LADAGNOUS. Vous m'avez laissé tout seul pendant plus que 100 km, m***ites espèces de c**. J'espère que vous avez tous honte. Maintenant, une bière, svp. En fa…
  • Stage 10 - Later news Not a shocker given the fall he took, but Pogacar (and my fantasy team) lost another teammate today in Davide Formolo. Davide looks so young that he makes Pogacar look like an old man, so hopefully he bounces back quickly. Pog…
  • I enjoy Johan quite a bit. He's the real draw of the show. If Johan posts his show before I finish listening to Lance, I usually switch to that. Wish I spoke Spanish because the show Johan does with JJR is probably pretty good.
  • Stage 10 - Asphalt cyclocross I'm glad this has evolved from a tri site to an endurance site. It means the collective bike handling ability of the members has increased 15% to 20%. But can you bunny hop onto and off of a traffic circle at 48 km/h? …
  • OK, it's the first rest day. Remember that your can swap a rider or two using your credits.
  • Stage 9 - Pyrenées part deux First things first: Chapeau Richie Porte! As long as the race doesn't get called off on the rest day, you will have a chance to complete a tenth stage of a Grand Tour for the first time in eons. And within spitting dist…
  • I wish Nibali were here, and valverde were 10 years younger. I wish Paolo Salvodelli were here and that I was 10 years younger, but I hear you.
  • Stage 8 - The real hills begin - spoiler below That was a perfect breakaway group. and was big enough to have some real racing in the mountains within the group. Good stuff by the Frenchman. Don't ever let @KHilgendorf write anything nice about yo…
  • Pinot need to be in the conversation until he blows up - he’s been utterly silent all year, much like Dumoulin, but is a week in and completely unfazed What are you, from the future or something?
  • I think Yates is a top 8 threat. That makes him a contender. But until we see otherwise, this is Roglic vs Bernal and a fight for third.
