Dan going to lose at least two minutes to sky tomorrow, thankfully he didn't lose times unlike the other GC guys yesterday.

How's the roads down Mexico way? Up here in the Unites States they're at an all time low with pot holes you'd get lost in, never seen the roads as bad...

Friend of mine done the Ring of Kerry at the weekend. Said it was great with Amazing scenery. I'm aiming to do it next year.

1'38 down on BMC (current leaders), 1'34 down on Sky. As expected.

A bit of that offset by Porte Froome and Quintana all losing time on day 1

Great article written by David Millar on Cavendish after yesterday's turn of events.

Wouldn't be surprised to see a Sky rider getting a dig at Alp d'huez today.

I wouldn't either although maybe the football has them all happy enough. Wasn't much point booing Sky yesterday when Bardet had the chance to go with Dan Martin and froome he hesitated and they were gone. The French rate as their future stars Alaphilippe, Barguil, Latour - none of which are good enough to compete in a 3 week tour. Bardet is but has to start doing it. 20/1 for today hmmnnn.

Letour is only 24 but the others are 26/27 so should be reaching their peak.

A girl I know won the women's Haute Route Alpe d'Huez last week. Some serious climbing! My car would have bother going up some of it!
