Yes, John, I agree that Sagan's punishment was overly harsh. As well as those 3 we lost other top riders - Rafal Majka from a crash, Richie Porte, - his crash was horrendous and in the later stages Marcel Kittell, and there were others.

Mike, I was trying to motivate myself to head up to Cadwell today as the VSCC meeting there is such a good one. It's only about 60 minutes away but in the end just couldn't get myself moving!

Eric.D should be qualifying in the top 10 on the grid
Like many other old riders I find it difficult to watch Froome's ungainly riding style. A far cry from Coppi, Koblet and Baldini etc. I also wish he'd tackle the one day classics or maybe the 'Giro D'Italia' a generally harder race than The Tour. But then this is the age of 'the specialists' unfortunatly

I'm watching the run into Paris on telly, as a racing friend has just done the London to Paris ride in aid of Prostrate Cancer. He was in the competitive group, so some achievement! He's promised to wave to the cameras from the side of the Champs Elysees.....

If anyone is interested in donating, pm me and I'll send you a link to his just giving page.

London to Paris passed through my local town of Frevent. If I'd known I would have gone & cheered him on!
