    American Spies is I think at the last ever episode tonight on ITV player, worth a gander. As a former dual m/bike cyclist i do have an interest in the IOM. Guiness says he's not fully fit so won't be racing the Norton this year, Guy has well and truly retired.

    Real shock that Froome isn't racing the Dauphine, he's had a really easy year since last year's TdF.

    Not sure winning the Giro from nowhere with an 80km solo can be considered low key! haha

    Preparation for the TdF is either the Giro or du Dauphine not both and traditionally those who do the Dauphine are more likely to win the Tour, all to do with recovery time. Given Froome's plan was to start the Giro unde rtrained and peak towards the end hoping to keep his form for longer it seems to be working so far.
    It doesn't matter how many times you fall down, its how times many you get back up that count.

    Though according to pippa yorke, the notion of improving form throughout a GT is bunkum as there is no recovery time. More likely in my view that a better (or better protected) rider will lose less form than others, just as Froome did at the Giro.
