Did you use it in the end? How did you do? I was about 6h17.

Froome has broke his leg days before the Tour. So Geraint for the double?

Be interesting to see Van Der Poel in stage races as well. The worlds is going to be unpredictable later on this year.

So with no Froome, Dumolin and Thomas not 100% (and the latter not having Froome to be Domestique this year either), it could be quite an open Tour this year similar to the Giro.

Dumolin now out. Dropping like flies at the moment.

Also in other news Van Der Poel is racing in the ToB. Might pop down to the stage starting in Warwick.

I had thought about going today.  Other things have cropped though - and I'm glad they have.  Standing at the kerbside of some desolate Dales road in weather like today's is too hardcore for me.

Sagan, Van Poel or GVA for the win?

When VDP blew up, Pedersen was my choice out of the ones left so reasonably happy with that result.

I've liked him ever since I saw this video the other year.

Who’s still riding through the winter?

Did 60km today in the wind and rain, hovering just above 0, had an ice cream headache most of the way but it was bloody great.

I commute 8 miles in and 8 miles out pretty much every day so winter doesn't make any difference. Saying that I haven't done more then a 20 mile ride in one go since Sept.

Try to do a club ride every Sunday morning. Usually around 35 in the winter but high winds forecast with rain tomorrow and ive had a few tonight so a weather check at 8.30. If not tomorrow will do Monday. i have a loop for the winter which is 1500ft over 10 miles and try to do that once a week.  Go skiing for 6 weeks from Jan to middle of Feb and then its back in the saddle for the Daffodil around March 1st which normally kills me.
