The Cycling Thread

I realized there was no official cycling thread here, though i made one for the Tour De France last year.
I thought it would be more organized to have a general cycling thread, not only for the Tour De France.
Not sure there will be much talk here besides me, but we will see ;-)

Please feel free to post your thoughts!

Froome heading closer to his 3rd win. I wonder how many he can get.

As long as he keeps his form, i can see him winning more and more! ;-)
The Sky ruling began to bore a bit though...
Would be way more interesting if they werent that strong!

Yeah it's almost inevitable that Froom will win these days. I'm happy about it and it's great for British Cycling but it's not great for competition.

Well done Froome!
I think he will want to go for the record now.
