Got a lend of a turbo trainer for some indoor use, any recommendations for good plans to build up leg speed/strength or do I invest in a zwift sub and follow the plans on there?

I follow the GCN turbo videos on YouTube. Great workouts.

"We can almost consider him British" says Bradley Wiggins. I don't know how Sean Kelly didn't deck him. When are these clowns ever going to learn?

What a finish. Insane gradients to finish.  Fair play to Superman. Primoz still in the driving seat.

Wow, couldn't actually believe that as it unfolded, such drama for a TT. Roglic will be inconsolable when he gets away from the cameras, very gracious in defeat.

Primoz looked destroyed crossing the line. Felt gutted for the fella. Saying that he came fifth today and there wasnt a huge amount betweeb 2nd and 5th. Normally that would have been enough.
     But Pogacar was just awesome.

What a ride by pogacar, one of the all time great rides at the tour, great stuff. Have to feel sorry for roglic though, just didn't seem to have the legs on the final climb, probably a bit of panic also set in as the time gap crumbled away.

Did anyone spot the ghost of Charlie lurking behind Sam on the podium?
