Nah, I don’t care :)). I’m sure he’s a very nice chap :look:.

ETA: about Tao, not the Vuelta coverage!

That's exciting Squizz! He seems very nice but quite boring. He's good at cycling though and we can't have everything.

That's a shame about the day coverage. I didn't realise they'd overlap.

Guess they can't risk leaving it much longer, or the weather could be too poor. I'm really disappointed about the lack of day coverage, it's great WFH company!

That's true, although it's annoying. Too much to watch!

Well done Dan! Those horses with the big bellies. :love:

I'm gradually catching up from yesterday (finding it hard to watch both and getting completely confused. Still got fingers crossed for Tao though). Amazing win for Dan!

Did David have a giant picture of himself behind him yesterday?!

Can't believe highlights have been bumped for rugby tonight.

I know! We just went to watch it and we very disappointed to find it was 10pm. Tao in with a real chance!

Froome is a very damp squib so far.

David millar said he was broadcasting from a room jn a local hotel didn't he? Has he taken a range of giant photos of himself? Tbf he doesn't strike me as the sort :lol:

Maybe just a random cyclist then.

I'm just watching the Giro from last night. Dennis putting on his jacket has totally cracked me up. Proper :mog:

Just realised I mean Hindley. Laughing too much to post properly!

I'm surprised that Hindley wasn't told to protect Kelderman.

I’ve lost my way a bit with the Giro due to baby witching (four) hour in the evening. I’m trying to keep up with the Vuelta though. My husband and I also commented about the odd photo behind David Millar...

I think Froome is done, even he said that his quad isn’t the same after being immobilised for 6 weeks. Sadly I think it was a career ending crash, maybe next season he might be a bit closer but I don’t see him winning again, sadly.

It's really sad for Froome, he's obviously had a pretty good career already but it must be hard not to keep wondering what if.

I'm not nuts about Froome (though I admire his achievements). I do feel for him thougg he must replay that moment endlessly.

I like him. I know he's not very personable but I almost like him for that, as I feel like it's a bit unfair to expect sports people to be characters as well as good at their sport. Although obviously I'm a hypocrite as I also enjoy laughing at how boring Tao is. :look:

Its not like i expect him to juggle and tell jokes, but I just can't warm to him. I think in part its not really his fault, I got a bit tired of watching him, and felt a bit uncomfortable with him/skys dominance, especially when the questionable stuff came out. I've felt much more excited to see them win this year, ironically, in more unlikely/exciting ways with a bigger variety of people.

Yes that's definitely true. The sky years were really impressive but definitely not as good to watch.
