We’re not going to get bogged down in that though, we’re here to discuss the truly important observations that popped into our heads on seeing That Chris Froome Photo…
Damn, that is one ugly-ass paintjob on Sir Chris’ Pinarello… Yes, we get it, the winner of La Vuelta gets a red jersey. Spain’s flag is red and yellow. But really, isn’t that paint design just a little bit on-the-nose?
Why does Lord Chris have the eye of Sauron on his right flank? Finally, irrefutable evidence that Froome used magic to complete his quest for the Tour-Vuelta double.
That schlong gonna get caught in the cassette be careful mate
Team Sunweb are greedy blighters. There, I said it. Yesterday at the World Championships they won not only the women’s TTT, but also the men’s – hoovering up two gold medals in the process and capping what has been a spectacular year for the squad.
Michael Matthews even went so far as to say that Sunweb would be looking to make it a triple, with Tom Dumoulin in flying form for Wednesday’s individual time trial, while Ellen van Dijk could even make it a quadruple by winning the women’s event.
Not many teams run both a men’s and women’s squad, but the way Sunweb are going about things this season, we wouldn’t be surprised if more of the WorldTour outfits start following suit. Indeed, Movistar has already announced the formation of a women’s team.
With no WorldTour races going on, a few teams sent squads to the Tour of Denmark instead.
Some bizarre events hit the second-tier race, including the breakaway on stage one being led in the wrong direction by race organisers AND the breakaway on stage three being led in the wrong direction by race organisers. How’s that for bad luck?
Stage two was also cancelled under the UCI Extreme Weather protocol.
