    Maybe they'll select some riders who will at least finish.

    They're doing the ITT. I think that TGH is doing the road race too. Adam and Simon Yates have been picked to lead the team.

    The Cycling Podcast was scratching their heads as to how France will get Pinot, Bardet and Alan Phillips to ride for each other. Valvpiti/Rodriguez-style, maybe?

    Speaking of Valvpiti, will he be cooked after the Vuelta?

    And Viviani turned to camera during yesterday's stage and announced that Nibbles is ready.

    Sagan has been building form but still isn't there in sprints. Is it because he's been focusing on climbing? He can't stay with them over the climbs... Can he?

    Sagan has no chance. I think there is a ramp of 22% on the final climb.

    Australia riding for Porte, according to interviews with Matthews at the Canadian Grands Prixs(?) who seemed unhappy at not being selected. Apparently Matthews blames his crap year on someone (maybe himself) putting his saddle 8mm too high.

    ColinJ A big clot!

    I'm not a pro rider doing pro distances, but even I can immediately tell when my saddle is 8mm too high! It wouldn't take me months to spot that problem.
