    Tour de France 2012

    A moment of sadness yesterday. I was watching Froome and Wiggins at the front of the Stage 6 climb and thought, "I must go on CW and see what Craig thinks about them".

    RIP. Says a lot there is no Tour de France thread on the board yet.


    If Wiggins wins, and it's a big if, it would be one of the greatest British sporting achievements ever.

    Yeah, I always think of Craigos whenever I see anything about cycling. Still can't quite believe he's gone, poor sod.

    Anyway, go Bradley. Seems a top fella too, unlike Cavdenish.

    - Even the ICC's own official press release thinks things must change

    Do not argue with an idiot. He will drag you down to his level and beat you with experience.
    RIP Craigos

    With the English bid I said: Let us be brief. If you give back the Falkland Islands, which belong to us, you will get my vote. They then became sad and left

    In a great position but has no real Tour pedigree and is not an elite climber

    Much will depend upon his team because it could all turn to **** if he gets isolated on the big stages coming up

    Isn't an elite climber but there aren't really any proper elite climbers in this tour who are genuine GC challengers. I'd say there are only 3 or 4 people who are genuine challengers, none of them are so much better climbers than wiggo that he'll be scared of them. There isn't an Andy Shleck/Contador type climber to really challenge.

    Plus there is another TT which obviously plays right into Wiggo's hands.

    I mean, the only way Evans is wearing yellow in Paris is if Sky gets busted before then

    They undoubtedly have the best team which is more than half the battle but this a long way from over

    2 stages ago, there was a moderate mountain stage, Sky were busted and Wiggins had to fight to hang onto the back of the others

    He needs to do that 4 or 5 more times to be safe
