Don't know how many are interested in this, I'm not even a cyclist but I love it and admire those that ride this 3 week race clean, which is now the vast majority.

Talking of which Chris Froome has had his case dropped this morning for an asthma treatment drug abuse. That's going to make all those who called him a cheat look a bit silly. he now holds the Tour of Spain, (La Vuelta) Tour of Italy (Giro d'Italia) and Tour de France titles. That's the Grand Slam of cycling and makes him a true legend in the sport.

I wonder why he hasn't been knighted, Wiggins was and despite Olympic medals, didn't reach Froome's achievements on the road. Anyway, good luck Chris and team SKY, let's beat up the French again, they can't handle it and fucking hate it. Ha ha

Tour de France starts Saturday, Geraint Thomas is also a strong contender.

As an Aussie I am really hoping Richie Porte makes a statement this year and wins it. He's a class rider and outstanding climber who has his issues descending (last year's crash was truly horrific). He's good enough to win it but Froome is a freak so it is no easy task.

He is, I like Porte and saw his crash in real time, horrendous. he's also a mate and ex team member of Froome's. I think SKY with Geraint Thomas and their climbers will be too strong, but you never know, there's about 6 who could win, but someone is going to need to spring a surprise somewhere, like Froome did in the Giro to upset the odds I think.

I like the Tour de France but generally I see cyclists as utter cunts. Had to shout at one today in fact, like most days. :D

Toure right, there’s an ever increasing middle aged minority that think they own the road. I love blasting past the wankers that ride two abreast in a group on my bike. My bikes got an engine ha ha.

Yes, that''s the thing. That SKY team is able to keep control of the race under any scenario and with Froome being almost the perfect all round rider it becomes almost impossible to beat him.

Unless you’re Geraint Thomas. Great race this year and superb performance by ‘G’ humble , good bloke, just a shame he’s a gooner. Maybe he’ll grow out of it as he matures??

Bit of dodge behaviour from a minority of the French fans who now haven’t won their race for about 20 years. Try harder would be my advice.

Watch a young Colombian bloke called Egan Bernal in the future. He’s 2 and future champion.

Yep, and I fear now that Porte's chances of ever winning it are gone. Aside from his known issues in descending (he's probably the best pure climber but has no idea how to get back down a mountain),it seems that he struggles to avoid trouble. At 33 time is running out for him.
