Is this the stress of the last year hitting home? Is it a mental fatigue showing physical symptoms?

Disappointed he won't be in the tour, but at least it solves the dilemma Sky had.

I am sure he will be back next year.

i would have liked to see him there,and seeing as no sky rider has ever tested positive for anything it seems like the same old sky bashing has started.

Without have been on Sky news saying he's a minor knee injury that isn't improving, wants to sort it out.

Sky have been in the phone to me offering his ride, but it clashes with a power lifting compo and it would seem there's no where to hitch up a child trailer, so I had to disappoint them.

I wonder if anyone will dominate the tour the way Armstrong did.

No reason to believe the Sky team are dopes.

Hoy has been calling for life time bans for drug cheats.

He recently packed it in.

No Sky bashing but unfortunately with professional cycling there's always an elephant in the room when a team can sit on the front of stage races for days on end, even more so when it happens in a couple of races happening simultaneously in different parts of the world.

Leaving that aside, Shane Sutton has some interesting thoughts on Bradley Wiggins and the future.

The way Nibali dominated the Giro gives me hope someone can. The Giro is ridiculously tough and he managed.
