Blimey you road boys are as scary as the off road crew, some of you can identify the bar tape manufacturer :shock:

:lol: when you get into the road stuff you realise it's even more full on than MTBs.

Good race this year - mainly because Cavendish (and Wiggins) has done well. Hopefully a few more decisive days in the Alpes, not that much of a sort out in the Pyrenees.

a lot of criticism in french press for the way the oragiser have handled the pyrenees this year . finish lines were miles away from big climbs .

but with the ventoux the day before paris , it should be interesting till the end .
