That I'm afraid is currently as clear as mud.
This is a real piece of journalism:
They have started calling Wiggins 'Sticks' Look at those legs!
Wiggens has dropped about five kilos recently whether drug enhanced or not he's in fine form for a climber.
The body shape of cyclists isn't always the best indicator. Vicky Pendleton, for example, is not the aesthetic female form of Chris Hoy, despite them both being the dominant track sprinters of their respective genders.
Not doing gel packs :skimmed milk and a banana instead
Fucking hell! Bradley Twiggins!
Wiggy or Twiggy? They're both Mods, but I prefer the 60's original version, Lesley Horny......sorry, Lesley Hornby.
PS: Just back from a few days in France and took in some of the TDF. I noticed that as the Brits got closer to the action, L'Equipe their national sports daily paper, was full of crappy stuff about Wiggins and Cav. When Wiggins put on the Maillot Jaune, thay had a poor shot of him sideways on. despite the L'Equipe snapper along with Graham Watson, having the two best opportunities.All change now though.
Nibali is a remarkably fun rider. I don't think it's going to work, but fair play to him.
Voigt's last hurrah pretty good,Sanchez spectacular blow up.
Team Tandy are officially dicks. Riding on the front to protect 6th place.
Anyone who gives Sky a single pedal stroke of assistance for the rest of this race is officially a dick. They are the red hot favourites with a commanding lead and an incredibly strong team. Chasing everything is their job and nobody else's.
Kimmage is less than enthused by Sky 2012:
Sky is currently 'looking into the past' of their suspect doctor. You trying to tell me that marginal gains doesn't go as far as googling your new team doctor?
Cracking day in the mountains so far today. Wiggins still firmly in control tho. about to begin the next ascent
Yes. BMC starting to play some tactics.
Waiting for Liquigas on the penultimate climb and final descent.
Evans attacks - on the second climb.
And Michael Rogers of all people pulls him back and shreds the peloton in the process. Now there are ten men in the favourites group. Four of them from Sky.
Wiggins still has three team mates with him - can't see how they can crack Sky but looking forward to some Nibali action on the descents.
I sure hope that whoever it was in the Sky scouting set up who noticed the massive but previously almost entirely hidden reservoirs of talent in these riders gets a raise.
Wiggins looking so composed. I haven't seen him get out of his saddle all day.
Froome is fucked. Let's see what Wiggins is made of.
Now Froome is back on the front and he's just dropped Evans. And he's pulling Wiggins back to Nibali.
Well Froome is still looking pretty fucking good to me!
all getting a bit heated on the grun live blog
bit like this thread a bit earlier
You were saying?
And now he's dropped Schleck.
