    Ex-race mechanic tip: when one crashes hard enough to knock ones brake lever sideways, let’s think about getting a fresh bike.

    You gotta give it up for the kid.

    Love Allan Peiper’s response. “We’re not trying to secure second place, we’re trying to win.”

    Finally sitting down to watch the ad free. Oggy is on his way, so my viewing will be spotty.

    At least the air is still crap enough when I speak it sounds like a gargling whisper. I can't imagine I'd still be alive in the PNWet given how bad their AQI is.

    I ran across a place in Italy who rent F12's for day or week long tours.
    New dream trip!
    I would reserve one day's riding at least. I don't care if I'm 70, I'll ride the bloody thing.

    Hirschi is tough as nails. Try this at home...smash yourself into the pavement at 60kph, then get back on your bike and chase for an hour or two, while banging on your bars to straighten your levers.

    On second thought, maybe don’t try this at home.

    Finally got caught up. Entertaining day, and chuffed for Kwiatkowski for the (ceremonial) win. Looking forward to the time trial

    That was entertaining. Worth the watch whilst on the trainer due to having to isolate for 14 days.

    I ended up watching the summary last night. I'll do that again for the TT stage today. Besides, Motogp and WSBK this weekend.
    I found my antique appleTV in the garage doesn't have the horsepower to steam the race feed off my Mac. It won't run the NBCSN app either.

    Just watch the last 2 hours
    A replay/summery won’t do it justice.

    must see tv

    So Pogocar will win Yellow, White and Polka Dot. That was a frickin' lesson!

    I did not expect the jersey to flip. He deserved it. Reminds me of a young Merckx.

    today’s parade looks beautiful.

    chapeau to Teddy.

    He won the yellow, white and polkadot. Close, but dunno if anyone can ever win them all like Merckx in '69. Though he didn't win the white.

    This was the most consistently interesting Tour in years. So many fascinating twists.
