Stage 17. The 25th day of July. It is now the middle of week 3 at the Tour. The peloton has been through the cobbles, to the Alps, and now they are being munched by the Pyrenees. Stage 16 saw three massive climbs - but not a mountaintop finish!   All three were packed into the end: the last 60 km of a 200 km day. The final climb, the Col de Portillon, is followed by a fast descent into Bagneres-de-Luchon. Stage 16 might have been designed with Nibali in mind.

But today? Today we have...

Tour de France Stage 5 - Vittel › La Planche des Belles Filles 160km

It doesn't seem that long since we were last here at the Planche des Belles Fil...

#green Classement par points

The points classification of the Tour de France has a long history, going back to 1905 when the decision was made to determine the winner of the yellow jersey by points instead of a time system. And although it was changed back in 1912 the points system was reintroduced in 1953 to celebrate the 50th birthda...

Wandering the web yesterday evening, and more specifically the Open Library I came across publications by the "American League of Wheelmen", the first American Cycle Touring group, that started in the late 1800's and still survives today to some extent, as the League of American Cyclists. They also acted as the governing body for Cycling in America till the turn of the 20th century.

Throught the late 1800's they were th...

Tao Geoghegan Hart Q & A
Rarely will you find a developing rider more in demand than Tao Geoghegan Hart. Be it sponsor representation, photo or video shoots, magazine columns or even book deals, it is plainly clear why the Hackney-born Londoner feels himself pulled so many directions when he is off his Specialized bicycle. Now in his third year with the A...

July is getting near, so it must be time to think about this again.  Last year it all came down to being decided by 7th place in the sprint on the Champs Elysees: what can you do to make it even closer this time around?

Pick eight riders, and watch them get points, or not, for stage finishes, GC ranking, Yellow Jersey wearing, KoM and Sprint category placement, or simply for reaching Paris.

Scores will be posted after each stage (real life permitting).
