The Giro d'Italia starts Friday 6.5.22 with Mark Cavendish in the race and possibly Vincenzo Nibali's farewell ride. Highlights on Quest at 19.00hrs for me. Cav won't be at the Tour de France.

Is it confirmed that Cav won't be riding the Tour? Thought it was still between him and Jakobsen?

Read it today in the media (so it must be true). They reckoned both would be too much.

Just thought I'd let you know Mick (and other cycling fans) that the 2022 tour de france has started.

Is it going anywhere near you Joe, and will we be able to see you waving at the camera?
Cheers, Trev.

Started... I think 1st place is already decided  ;)
Just got to get to Paris now but that's half the battle.

Thanks, Joe. I've been watching it since the kick off in Denmark :)

We're on holiday in France and we have watched the stage to Planche des belles filles last friday.
There was a field full of Belgian fans and they had this car:

I was made up to see how well Chris Froome rode in today's stage :claphappy:
Gary Imlach suggested it may signify Chris's return to contender in big tours but I'm just content to see him go so well today and hope his stamina can maintain this level.

What a cracking Tour.  :thumbsup:

Thankfully my first week prediction of it all being sewn-up already was wrong and we've had some very interesting racing. Vive la Tour!

Some absolutely stellar performances, especially from the usual suspects e.g. Pogacar, Van Aert and still the odd flash from, dare I say, veterans like Quintana. Thomas surprises me by being as good as he is and Jonas Vingegaard has been an absolute revelation this year.

Jumbo - Visma have been the team of this year's tour.

I'm already looking forward to La Vuelta :bounce:

For all you bikers out there the 2024 Tour de France started today - in Florence, Italy

What a result for Romain Bardet!!
I was a little surprised to see Sir Mark Cavendish there but he all but passed out in the heat.
This does not bode well although I'd love to see the guy win one more stage win to be the most winning stage chap

That was a good finish to watch, expected them to get caught just before the line as happens so many times and great to see a French winner. Lots of suffering at the back of the bunch and still three weeks to go.
