    saw a bit on the One show last night with Cyclists sending the law videos of poor driving in regard to proximity to cyclists - mmm think that they might awash with not only cyclists stuff but stuff from car driver and biker cams as i have seen some really unsafe stuff lately - so boys take care out there - dont go out in freezing weather in the dark its does'nt make sense

    Scary times which has led to cyclists needing to keep cameras for evidence for the police. Some cyclists are ‘entitled’ dickheads and therefore doesn’t help but there is still an unbelievable hatred from motorists towards cyclists still which is sad. Warwickshire police led the way on the distance laws so fair play to them

    Team sky set to become team ineos sponsored by a chemical company. Only thing a bit dodgier would be a pharmaceutical company sponsor instead.

    Until the next moneybags owner comes along...& the authorities rub their money-grabbing hands together as they consider ways & means of how to get a bigger slice

    but there just doesn't seem to be the appetite for it, Tinkoff was one who spent a lot of money in the Sky era but even he couldn't make it stack as the prizes for races just aren't no where near, sponsorship is low value and decent riders wanting more and more.

    GC kicking into gear today, be interesting to see how G fairs up La Planche today, doesn't appear to have the form that he had going into last year, think he will end up doing a job for Bernal
