  1. Cycling Season 2017

    Great win for Kwiakowski at Strade Bianche. GVA and Tom Dumoulin were the other threats but made a textbook move and they couldn't follow.
  2. Jeremy Corbyn & the Labour Party

    16.5" neck, 32 inch waist. Slim fit shirts fit in the chest but are too baggy round stomach...

    Keep it going guys. I started cycling 3 years ago at 21st. Now weighing in at 13st4.

    Done it twice in last 15 months. First left a smashed collarbone and 2 broken ribs, almost a ruptured spleen and plenty of road rash. Last month was hit in the side by a car on a roundabout, cuts and bruises for me and a wrecked bike

    Potentially. Radios are in the jersey partly due to easy access by a mechanic if they have a problem with it. Also there was no race radio during the Olympics Road race. Only world tour races are allowed to use radios as far as I know.
  6. Favourite sporting moment of 2015
  7. I suspect that the grid may need to rely more on standby diesel Generation to meet short term needs.
  8. puppy advice

    He's now 19 weeks old and growing rapidly. Chewing settling down a little but still teething. Playful as ever and bounces around from the minute he wakes up till the minute he falls asleep again!
  9. Tour de France 2015

    That's the madness of Dutch corner. Mountain was closed for five days before so will have all been on the beer all week
  10. Tour de France 2015

    Lance wasn't the first to dope and won't be the last. Riders have been trying to find an edge on the tour since it began. From the early use of alcohol to numb the pain to Tommy Simpson dying on Ventoux after taking speed. Whilst Armstrongs era took doping to a new level, Armstrong brought a banana to a gun fight when he arrived in the peloton. Armstrong has been made an example of whilst a lot of riders largely walked away. Even Floyd Landis stands to make $30m from bringing a case against Armstrong. Riders at US Postal knew what performance was expected of them and they all chose to dope to achieve it. Don't hate Armstrong for being a doper. Hate him for his win at all costs attitude. His non British attitude to life after beating cancer. Indont agree with what Armstrong did but I understand why he did it. Pro cycling will always have those that dope. The nature of pro cycling forces temptation. Butnbr thankful of the efforts pro cycling now makes to keep the sport as clean as possible. Not all sports do.

    Today's useless prediction. Thibald pinot
  12. £12bn in welfare cuts

    Taking money away that the family never had isn't a cut. It's a change in entitlement. To saynitsba cut would presume they had the money in the first place.

    Degenkolb may not be a bad shout. I'm pretty unsure about today. Kwaikowski may not be a bad call but can see quickstep backing Tony Martin. I'm going for Lars Boom.
  14. Tour de France 2015

    I'm going for Cancellara today. Treat it like a classic and leave the GC riders to put time into each other. Good tactics from sky and tinkoff saxo yesterday to put time into nibali and quintana. Froome and Contador can settle things between themselves in the high mountains
