Yeah yesterday was fantastic viewing, completely blew to bits on the Stelvio. I was supposed to cycle it in the Summer.

Today not near as exciting but Bennett has won a stage at the Vuelta while we had a protest in the Giro

Super day of racing on TV yesterday. Giro was on first going up the Stelvio climb. The leader Almeida (that was 2.5mns ahead) fell away first and ended 5th, then Kelderman, who was 2nd (who had about 1.5min lead on the pack) fell away, the guys who started 3rd (Hart) and 4th (Hidnley) powered ahead, Hindley (who road the Ras a few years back) nearly fell off trying to put on his jacket, and they all ended up within 15 seconds of each other. 3 stages left:
1. Kelderman
2. Hindley +12 seconds
3. Hart +15 seconds
4. Bilbao +1.19
5. Almeida +2.16

I've never seen a GT so close with 3 stages left.

Then an hour after that, switched over to the end of the Vuelta and Co.Birmingham's favourite Irishman Dan Martin won the stage. He's 2nd now in that race (2 weeks left).

Greed has won, big finance has won. Whatever small role elite clubs still play in the local communities from which they grew is dwarfed now by their position as global brands.

Michelton and Jumbo Visma both pulled out of the Giro today due to positive tests, going to be very hard to get the race finished with 2 weeks still to go.

Up to second now. Sagan relegated to last place. Sam's lead out to 68pts now 

Yeah, good day for him, Probably the right call on Sagan, it was a bit over aggressive especially after what happened with Fabio Jacobsen

You seen his "joke" to claim Bennett then I take it
That was Bradley Wiggins? Confused

I thought it was just some random 52 year old Brexiteer they had dragged in from anti-mask demo

I was wondering why I, of all people, was being sent clips of cycling coverage. Another absolute idiot.
