Good old Pogi! I thought he was only going to follow Vingegaard today. Makes tomorrow even more interesting now.
Remco down to third.

After being drizzled off yesterday, thought I'd better get out today - especially with a weekend in the Pyrenees to watch in the TdF, I'd love to give the Tourmalet a try, but I'm old and it's uphill, for a long way.

I'd got a 40 miler planned in my head, a flattish 40 miler - sometimes I feel like I wish I lived on Suffolk - I'd got three miles and looked down to see I'd forgotten my bidon :-[  So a quick U-turn and back home to get it. Back home I found I hadn't even filled it. Hope I'm not getting like Biden.

At least now it meant I wouldn't have to go through Westhouses, so I can be thankful for small mercies. It was nice to ride out to Tibshelf with a tailwind, normally it's a cross headwind, of course that meant it was a headwind coming back, but I manned up. Got my 40 miles in and possibly feel better for it.

That was a pretty hectic non-stop day, didn't see it all, but it had the lot - apart from high mountains...

Second win for Jasper the Disaster and another second for WvA, bring on the weekend, could get exciting.

Bini again! Cav was more up for it today, but got boxed in.

Roglic lost time after a crash. Podium settled then now.

Fucking cars have started driving round making illegal use of the horn, just because Ingerland have won a Soccerball game.  >:(

Wish I'd gone out on Monday, might have kept the legs in better condition after being kept in by the rain yesterday.

It was certainly a struggle today, although a headwind may have been as big a contributor as the legs. My first five miles were about my quickest this year on the way I headed out, but that could have been because the wind was a tailwind. First time I've been out that way in weeks as roadworks had been showing up. They were supposed to have gone. Wrong. Ho-hum.

First ride to the tops through Cutthorpe in a week and a half and it showed! Not done many slower times, but once you're up there its a relief! Even managed to get out and cross the border into Yorkshire - but not for long! Got 40 miles in, which will do.

Crikey! Pogi beaten in a two up sprint for the first time! Late crash for Roglic and Remco I think keeps second.
Some stage that.

Still can't believe where Lizard Lips is at after just six weeks of pre-tour training and no racing.

Why are cunts like this prick just not banned outright for driving?
I read about this earlier and again on the news just now. The death penalty would be too kind for the twat. A decent sentence at least (and not get it cut short). A driving ban for 21.5 years too, which should start when he leaves prison. I'm not sure on this in general; whether a driving ban starts after release or when they start their sentence.
Driving bans are completely ineffective. I watch Traffic Cops/Police Interceptors/Motorway Cops and just about everybody they pull over is either a disqualified or unqualified driver.

The death penalty is too kind, these cunts should be staked out and have their arms and legs smashed with a sledgehammer, with no medical intervention afterwards. try driving now shitbag.

Anyhoo, I'm grumpy because Squirrel has disappeared from raiding our bird feeders and has been replaced by a fucking Rat. And no, it's not a Squirrel with tail alopecia.

Jasper the Disaster gets his win today.

Another rest day apart from the last 3k, tomorrow looks more intersting :)

Bloody squirrel keeps coming and helping itself to the contents of our bird feeders >:( Was having to shoo it off every five minutes.

Had an idea, so I coated the pole on which the feeders hang in butter. It actually worked, kept seeing it trying to climb up and then sliding down :)

Bloody things back again, it's taking a four foot leap from the top of a hedge to land where the feeders hang from. Bastard.

Bliminy! Another Froggo winner :(

Plucky Brit Thomas Pidcock in second, at least he beat turncoat Ben Healy.

Now is Ben Heaky incapable of putting his helmet on straight, or does he have a crooked head?
