PhilPlumb59 takes another fine win in a bunch sprint for the finish of La Vuelta. Chapeau.

Overall PhilPlum59 maintains his season long fine form.

Good to see RobSandy back!

If Roglic had crashed out like he did TdF, PhilPlumb59 would’ve still won with a single point since he picked Mas in the top 5. 🙂

Interesting start to the Vuelta! Roglic on form. Nice to see Taaramae get red as that kind of win/publicity is incredibly important for smaller teams like Inter Marche. And then Jakobsen getting a sprint win! The jitters he has overcome to get back in the mix for sprints were immense. And that was a super fast sprint today. Chapeau Fabio!

Plenty to play for though!

Van Aert to win the Tour of Britain.

Tour de France results updated – sorry for the delay – again!

A photo finish on the Champs Elysees sees a dead heat between CyclingMonk and Wiscot. Chapeau.

Overall PhilPlump59 maintains his season long lead from a tight pursuing bunch of Wiscot, Teocalli and Haldy34.

In the actual race such a shame that Cavendish got himself boxed in by following Van Aert. He never seemed to get into a sprint so looked as though he might have had the legs for the win if he had had clear run. Will we see him there next year?

La Course results updated. Haldy34 takes the win just ahead of Wiscot. Chapeau.

In the overall standings we did not shake up the pot to any extent and Philplumb59 maintains his strong lead.

TdF looks to be building to an interesting situation where there could be a few high scorers or we could all be in the Autobus come 2 weeks time.

It is too bad there were so many crashes involving the GC favorites in the first couple of stages. Pogacar looks so much better than everyone left it is hard to get excited about the GC race at this point. Cav may keep things interesting, although injuries and dropouts have limited the number of competitve sprinters too. Hopefully the guys will be motivated for stage wins and will give us some good racing!

Yes indeed! I’ll be the first to admit I thought he’d never win another Tour stage, but here’s he gone and done it twice – and neither time was close!

Will he get 35? Who knows? It’s possible but he has to get through the mountains. Clearly the whole team is behind him and he’s back to the self-confident Cav who knows he can win. It would be beyond sweet to see #35 come in Paris.

Truly a sporting comeback for the ages.

Carnage today in the TdF. G down and dislocated shoulder (apparently) but finished the stage. Roglic went down hard late on and was gapped. Carapaz finished with the leaders and Pogacar just a little further back. Overall GC is way up in the air. Really nasty crash for Ewan who also took down Sagan in the final sprint.

Dang and you’ve put exactly what I was going to pick. So I’ve pitched Thomas in for Second. My heart wants him for the win but my brain does not follow. Might even have to cogitate and move Carapaz up in lieu of G but somehow I think the ITT will prove crucial for the podium.

Sorry for the late update to last results, been a bit hectic here. This retirement business is hard work!

Well the Autobus pretty much came in on the Criterium du Dauphine with DanCollins and Philplumb59 just nudging a gap on the line from the rest of the bus.

On Tour de Suisse, CyclingMonk came in a clear winner from a tight following bunch.

Chapeaux to all.

Overall, Philplumb59 maintains his strong lead from Teocalli and Haldy34. Still all to play for as the season winds on.

Actually, I think Haldy34 deserves 14 points for Tour de Suisse. He got Carapaz FTW plus both Schachmann and Woods NITRO.

Some big swings in the results update mainly owing to a near mass Delgado for Vuelta a Burgos Feminas.

In the results, Wiscot and Teocalli share Vuelta a Burgos Feminas and Chuckp and Teocalli share Giro d’Italia. Chapeaux. (All subject to protest for scoring cockups!)

In the overall Philplumb59 maintains his lead with Teocalli jumping up the standings to second place with Haldy34 and Wiscot wheel to wheel in third place.

I’ll open picks for Tour de Suisse and Women’s Tour (of GB) tomorrow.

I didn’t pick him but I’m very happy for Bernal. After his Tour win there was the tiniest hint of an asterisk due to that crucial late stage being nullified and that he had not won a stage. Then his back issues appeared (something I can relate to) which could have suggested he was a flash in the pan. I’m happy to be eating humble pie. He has basically been magnificent in this Giro. Riding super intelligently and winning in style. Chapeau. If he wins on Sunday it will be without question well-deserved. Very happy too to see some smaller… Read more »

Not a Sky/Ineos fan, but I do love Bernal. Picked him for the Giro. Want to see him win it. And then go on to win the Vuelta (if not this year, then next) and join the elite company of those who have won all three Grand Tours. I’d have to check, but I think he would be the youngest to do that if he can do it this year or next.

Brutal day on the Giro even with the shortened stage. Quite a sort out. Great day for Bardet and Almeida will be ruing one bad day and having to drop back for Evenepoel after that. Stunning ride by Bernal though. Shame that Yates could not hang in and lost time but hopefully it was just the weather getting to him and he still has more to give in the final week.
