    The Boy danny la rouge is probably wrong.

    That's some top 10. GC riders mixing it up with sprinters and a variety of classics specialists.

    And Carlton Kirby's man-crush even managed to sneak in there.

    Edit: van aert in there too, so add cyclo-crossers to the list.

    Appalling commentary today at the tour of Catalunya. Simon Yates, it's Simon Yates, Simon Yates, I knew it was Simon Yates....and Adam Yates wins the stage.:facepalm::facepalm:

    What a great race all the same.

    Who do you fancy for the Ronde? Although he's not been spectacular this year I've a hunch about Lampaert as everyone will be watching Gilbert, Stybar and Jungels.

    You’d get a reasonable prediction simply by throwing a dart at a QS squad list :D

    That said, Mathieu VdP was incredible yesterday, he has to be in with a shout.

    I would have taken a second throw if the dart had hit Kasper Asgreen. Turns out it would have been a very profitable each way bet.

    It really was. Wonder if he can manage MSR and become one of a truly select group?

    I hope so.
    A band of Belgian legends.
    I am so chuffed for him following his accident in La Tour last year.

    I wonder if Deceuninck–Quick-Step are scheming how to get MVDP out of his ill advised 4 year contract with his Pro Conti team.

    I imagine ever single world tour team is doing that :D

    He's never going to be a GC contender (unless he can perform the Sky alchemy and drop 10kg without losing power) so it would make sense for him to go to a team with a good classics pedigree. He's been very badly advised (probably by his old man) and has really fucked himself with that COC contract. His performance this spring should have seen him tucking a cheque for 1-3m EUR into his cuissard à bretelles from a WT team for 2020.

    Contracts are made to be broken. He’ll be in the WT next year.
