So the tour of France is starting soon. Any ideas how this year will go?
We'll be bored to death by Ineos?

The loss of a couple of key players (Froome, Dumoulin) makes it a little more open I guess. I find the TdF one of the less interesting races in general. At least the opening week parcours looks a bit more interesting than the usual fare.

I heard that Frome was out. I'm a little more excited that there might be a more wide open race. I love watching the country side in France.  Really beautiful.  I am concerned  about the heat wave out there and how that will effect the racers.

I did my own favourite "tour" today, Staveley Store return, 58km; the lamb burrito and flat white did not disappoint. 

I did have to rug up for the ride, brrr.

While LeTour is still in the boring stages... the Women's Giro has been very fun to watch.

Amend and resubmit.
