    Not seen a thread yet so here it is! Forget the Euro misery guys. This is where it's at in world sport!
    Sit back, enjoy and marvel at the athleticism and the scenery.
    Can't wait.....

    The biggest mobile pharmacy in the world. You could call it "massive" (sniff!).

    Will miss Phil liggett and Paul sherwin doing the itv commentary. Not sure David millar can explain in differences in rock formations along the route like paul can.

    Thinking it will be Nibali in yellow. Although seeing as the Welsh are doing so well at the moment think Thomas might surprise some if froome is struggling

    It is a bit boring but these are the hard men of sport. They have horrendous crashes and just get up and carry on. I saw them in the Milk Race above Glossop once and they were going faster down hill than i would in my car.

    And then they repeat the dose the next day and the day after.

    No puns intended.

    No. It used to be. Not been a single rider tested positive on the Tour for ten years. One of the cleanest sports there is now mate.

    Between here and there.
    1) Quintana
    2) Froome
    3) Aru

    Barring any crashes. Quintana will choose his day and destroy any challengers.
