Are there any fellow cycling fans on ATS? Being from the UK I do love football and Liverpool FC in particular so I can't wait for the Champions
League Final but at the moment the Giro is on in Italy. Whenever a Grand Tour is on I am totally hooked and watch at least 3 or 4 hours a day. When
it's over I enter a grieving process and will have wait until the Tour de France begins to get my fix back.
It's been a great race so far, except for the dull scenery when the race started in Israel ( I know, Israel featuring in the tour of Italy?? go
figure). Personally I think Tom Domoulin is still favourite but I would love to see a British winner in Adam Yates. I don't consider Froome to be
British and I don't think he should be racing while his doping case is still ongoing. I didn't like Froome anyway (I am definitely Team Wiggins)
but I think his participation is damaging to cycling. Thankfully he's 2 minutes down on GC and not looking like he's going to win.
On Saturday they climb the Zoncolan and I would encourage any sports fan to take a look at what will be a spectacular day, I can't wait, I just need
to get myself out of a childs birthday party that my wife says I MUST attend
Maybe I could fake an alien abduction and when I come back from the
pub in the evening I could claim missing time??
