    Personally I'm surprised if it's true as I reckon TDF be the most important for him and to ride Giro could potentially adversely affect his chances in TDF but I guess we'll wait and see.
    All the gear and no idea.

    He tends to get up late in the morning mind, season wide that is.

    Afternoon all.
    I'm glad he's gone for it, good on him!
    It's now or never for the froomedog and he knows it. He's at the peak of his powers and unchallenged at the top of the food chain in the strongest team in the peleton.
    If it didn't quite work out then at least he gave it a shot, there's a chance that in the next couple of years he can eke out another tour or possibly two before his powers start to wane.
    If it comes off he hop up a few steps in the legends hall of fame.
    I think of anyone from the contenders he has by far the best shot at it.
    He was getting called out too so he almost had to do it.
    He'll be very aware of the rise of a younger, similar rider in Dumoulin. Of any of them, he's the one that's the threat to the Froome era.
    I can see him beating Froome consistently a couple of years down the line. He's an up and coming big mig.

    Enjoy this race, more so than the other two majors. Wheather thatís down to being the first of the season or not all the usual suspects.

    Can I just quickly highjack this tread asking if there's any online video archive of recent grand tours? I managed to find all full stages for giro 2015 on youtube and watched it over the last month. I found it both interesting and educational... and want more. My first tour that I actually followed was Vuelta 2017 so I have a lot of catching up to do.

    The 'tube normally shows last years highlights in 30-40 min segments of the tours. Don't really have time to watch complete days. Very steepy giro course, with one long flattish TT next May.
