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.
