    Awright. Use the same info as last year or create a wittier team name, then look for Tour de Roost in the Leagues table and join up.

    They have some trivia thing where you can win additional credits to use for better riders, so log in early to take advantage. Riders will be available for selection on August 24th. It's the point system again, must choose the stage captain each day, etc.

    I highly recommend staying in your housecoat and brewing a pot of Kittel's Le Tour coffee one Saturday morning, reflecting on your selections while the sun burns off the morning dew wherever you are.

    If you haven't been following cycling this year, every race since the restart has been won by Remco Evenpoel of QuickStep or Wout van Aert of Jumbo-Visma, who apparently is determined to win all of the Pro Tour races he did not win after his Tour crash last year, and a few that he didn't win before the Tour as well. Demare might have won the lone sprint stage since the restart, but no one can confirm if a sprint stage has actually taken place, and Eddie the Eagle Roglic won what is generously considered a middling Pro Continental race in normal years, but a nail-biting TdF tune-up this year. There. You are all caught up.

    Unless the whole peloton is infected after the Criterium Dauphiné this week, it looks like we will have a Tour de France in a couple of weeks. (Maybe that's why Froome keeps dropping off the back? Less aerosol Covid-19 to inhale when you have been dropped.) If anyone else is game, I will set up a group like last year.

    I would go with the Castelli for a short-course presentation, but if it could go long you might want the additional support of the 2XU.

    Meet Foscoe Oakley. Russell Terrier. Big sister Hattie Jane in the background.


    He's gorgeous. Now show him in true Russell Terrier form: chewing off a leg of your sofa or leaping onto the counter to eat a pound of butter.

    Can we merge this thread with the Mullets! thread?

    Seems appropriate for this forum.

    Dear Mr Rooster,
    Would you please settle a disagreement? When wearing my Rooster headband, I prefer to wear the logo off center, between 1 or 2 o'clock. Someone suggested that I should wear it at 12 on the nose.
    Please help, before this degrades into another sock height dispute.
    Thanks.

    240 watts.
    For 14 hours.

    Piccoli also holds the record for this segment on Strava, which he set in a carefully executed time trial attempt.

    Happy day of birth to one ... guy who's possibly banned from this forum... Benjamin Hobbs.
    Who?

    Something about that picture was bothering me. It took a few minutes before I realized it was a nine-lane pool. Weird!

    This might need it's own thread.

    When I travelled a lot for work I used to select hotels based on pools nearby. This one in Paris was beautiful, seconds from Notre-Dame, and a terrible, terrible place to try to get in a swim workout.

    If you are not following @A_drizzle on the Twitter, you are missing out on all sorts of Covid info like the tweet below. (Please follow her and tell me what this means.)
