My first tour that I actually followed was Vuelta 2017 so I have a lot of catching up to do.
    I'm not sure you'll find full stages/races anywhere due to the length/running time.
    Eurosport periodically show compressed highlights at obscure times of the day through out the closed season.They also show highlights of The Monuments(Paris-Roubaix/Milan-San Remo etc).
    Generally a couple of weeks before the Races they'll show highlights of the previous years event.ITV4 do the same.
    I think there are usually DVD releases of highlights too.

    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.
    Indeed. Tom Dum is a star. Giro defo the race of last year IMHO.

    Oh and welcome back Dan!

    Not sure I'd go as far as to say it was the best of the crop, but it was the Giro I have most enjoyed!
