    What a shambles. Think it'll be another 100 tours before they come back to Corsica after this carnage.

    No idea how Velogames will figure out the dream team points for that mess either!

    yeah really farical. They should have just neautralised the stage straight away. Even the 3k flan rouge was right on some road furniture anyway or a tightist corner. Any big fallers? injuries?

    Suspected broken collarbone for Martin. Thomas is precautionary, I think.

    Tony Martin "has a concussion and a contusion on his left lung. He also has soft tissue damages on his hip, chest, left knee and shoulder, and also on his back. Furthermore, he has a very deep wound 5cm wide on his left elbow that reaches his muscles, which causes a lot of pain and a problem moving his arm".

    He'll decide tomorrow if he will continue or not.

    Do you now what size frame you need?

    I've been doing a 25mi loop for the last few months and am getting a Bianchi road bike to replace my Raleigh MTB next week - can't wait - the number of sportive guys that have gone by and sailed seemingly effortlessly into the distance while i puff away on fat offroad tyres is so depressing.
    well I'm quite a tall person (6'1") so it needs to be 21", I've always lifted the seat to its maximum height anyway because if your legs don't extend to their full length I feel it's a waste of energy.

    You better watch out.
    You better beware.

    Funnily enough I have an Almax chain. I bought it specifically because it was one of the only chains I saw withstand the heaviest duty bolt cutters.

    Still wont do shit against an angle grinder and a bunch of time though.

    After my former bike was stolen just like that - bolt cutter that went straight through my 100 Eur lock - I am now paying though the nose for a bike insurance. :-/

    What a pro. They don't fuck about these cyclists, do they - Apparently after dragging himself over the finish line he got into the team bus and passed out.

    Guys i got short arse syndrome. I had a ride on a second hand MTB bike yesterday, and i feel fairly comfortable on the bike, but my standover height is pathetic. i touch the top tube.

    i stood next to my dad, who must be slightly smaller than me, and he has a probably an inch standover height on it compared to me, literally sitting on the top tube.

    Is it that important, its a nice bike, with a lot of extras in for free, at a really cut down price (saving of ebay listing, and friends with dad, quicksale etc).

    If you'll be going off road on that mountain bike then it could be an issue, one slip off the pedals and that could be the end of the family tree for the Stintons.

    How much seat post do you have showing when you set it up for riding? A lack of standover height says more about the frame being too big for you more than anything. What bike is it, what size, how tall are you and what's your inseam?

    He's not anymore Emilko's top.

    I have made a good solid start, middle of the pack, at least I haven't embarrassed myself yet.

    Heh. Emil is a mate of mine who had neglected to add his team to the league. Just got around to it earlier. Quite an entrance.

    Well it looks like I'm a man down already.
    I don't think Geraint Thomas will be doing much with a fractured pelvis.

    Same here. I thought he'd be worth a go, but it sounds like he is fucked up.

    Can't be long until he quits surely.

    Was I? Has Emilko just joined? Cos having Kittel and Sagan on his team looks like it's been a good combo so far, and beats my Sagan and Boom.

    To be honest, I just picked names I like. I only recognise a handful, and they were mostly too expensive to select, so I mostly went with the ones with silly names (hence Lars Boom :D)

    Edit: Ah, I see he has. Pass on my congrats, Sal!

    Your system worked though. :-)
    Started in 2nd place after stage 1 and then shot to first before Emil joined the league.

    Went to see Brian Rourke cycles today to get a measure up and spec for my bike. all went well, so now I just have to wait 26 weeks (or thereabouts) for it to be completed.

    All rather exciting.
