    I read a book about a ex pro rider who rode the length of the Nile (alongside on dry land....obvs) with a similar setup, old school racebike, slightly wider tyres, bar bag and saddlebag.

    de Gendt will sprint off at the start of each day, leaving Wellens to try to catch the breakaway by the time they reach the hotel

    Was watching Spanish TV yesterday and Valverde was leading out a fun ride for all classes of cyclists, nice touch from the new world champion. He was wearing the stripes as well

    No, Nacer Bouhanni was hiding amongst the grannies and children and he went for the sprint finish!!!!
