Just watched the inaugural Mount Ventoux Denivele Challenge. Another chance for Romain Bardet to show his tactical naivety and he didn't disappoint.

Argh! The (Virgin TV) guide and Eurosport 2HD channel info, tell me I'm watching 'Critérium du Dauphiné Cycling' but my eyes and the commentary tell me I'm watching the Tour of Hungary! :censored: :veryangry:

I've now seen the results and, well, my mood isn't really improved any by them. :veryangry: :veryangry:

I feel your pain!  I recorded it yesterday on Sky, but what I got was tennis. Sat down to watch it again today, and like you was the tour of Hungary.  Fortunately it was on straight after.  Nice to see Aliphilippe blow up and let someone else win something.

Sadly, since his illness and crashes he had, I don't think he is the force he once was, shame.
Cheers, Trev.

Hardly surprising. Emotionally I’d like to see him racing, but he’s just not got the form or fitness.

Team Dimension Data seem to be backing Edvald Boasson Hagen in the sprints this season.

A shame but, as has been said, poor health and lack of fitness would probably lead more to embarrassment than any result :(

Been a good start to this years tour, with some popular stage winners.
Geraint is going to have a hard job winning this one.
Shame about Cav. :'(
