    Froomey banned from tour

    I think Alex was referring to US postal/Discovery - not necessarily Sky? In any case BMC do not strike me as a crap team, rather the opposite. Now Cadel's teams in the past, now they were crap. I'm getting over Porte's withdrawal now, if I find it agitating he must be devastated. Who can beat froome now? Probably no one. many of the other riders are let down by a bad TTT team and their own personal lack of time trial expertise.

    Don't think you can blame his team for his inability to stay on his bike. Seems he has a great team, they were up front where he should have been I believe. Do the maths on how many riders there are, and how many each year withdraw from injury. You would have to have very very bad luck to be Porte, so it's either that or he is doing it wrong.

    Seriously, what is with falling off your bike? And riding at the carnage end of the peleton? Lance my have doped, but he also managed not to to fall off his bike.... So depressing. I really wanted to watch him win. I reckon it could have been the year. Good team, potentially overworked and under pressure froome. Honestly! Why!

    50 Ironmans in 50 days Ashley Horner

    So apparently some insta-famous woman is going to do 50 Ironmans in 50 days in 50 different places. That's what I thought the thread was about anyway!? I think her name is Ashley, who is this Corky??

    Those reports sound so dodgy it's unreal. That stress fracture story... Can't imagine any doctor saying running 80k on a swollen and very sore foot won't make it any worse 😶

    Tour de France Tipping Competition

    I've never been tempted much by these competitions, but it seems that all I need to do to have a good chance of winning this time is add Foome to my team 😂 You are all to principled to win, Lance would not approve.

    It's hard enough to do 50 ironman distances in 50 days. Doing it in each state just makes it soooo much harder. The logistics alone are a nightmare. Who knows what will happen, Ironcowboy almost pulled it off, and for all practical purposes some would say he did. Personally I don't think this particular journey will end nearly as well but we shall see.

    You can say you can't compare one "anomaly" with Froome to the "greatest systematic doper of all time" - thing is at the time Lance "never tested positive". It's actually exactly the same argument that surrounded Lance, suspicion, the odd anomaly, but no proof.

    Terenzo Bozzone hit by a truck

    This is just terrible news, particuarly if the truck just fled.

    You should know better Peter. There is only one Ironman distance*... *+- 10 per cent due to WTC courses, sometimes with or without a swim.

    Prince of Bahrain caught cheating. Oh dear

    ha ha. Drafting. lol - around triathlon its up there EPO and blood doping. Of course he could be in the process of being past by the peloton. A single image doesn't prove anything! I've been swallowed by a large group once, until it went by me. Surrounded me on all sides - I remember thinking "what on earth is that sound" - only to realise it was 120 carbon wheels coming up on me in Shepparton

    One of his responses after the race: "That's racing, you can't get along with everyone. The good guys always win." From a cyclist of all people! http://www.newshub.co.nz/home/Commonwealth-Games/2018/04/commonwealth-games-mountain-bikers-repeat-historic-gold-silver-finish.html

    It's a 1hr MTB race, not a three week grand tour!

    Agree. And if it hadn't happened it was fairly clear to me that Richards would have stormed past. As it was I couldn't pick who won.
