    the city race with Brunelle just rubs me the wrong way. he just makes me want to push him off the bike, especially riding up busy one way streets the wrong way… idiot.

    • Nitro

      Cannot confirm or deny that I had exactly the same reaction (and pondered if I should comment)

      Proof that a cyclist who’s not obeying the road rules beats a McLaren who is (or at least appears to be – at least stopping at red lights)
      Problem is that I was sucked in and watched anyway – anything involving a “Top Gear style” race, particularly one with a McLaren – I’m a complete sucker for…

    • DangerDirte

      Agreed. The guy is a clown.

    • Jessy Vee

      He almost ran into the guy holding the stop sign at the very start! I hate the ‘ducking and weaving’ NYC bike messenger style of riding. I can understand why a lot of people hate cyclists.

    • Cynic

      Clickbait that makes life harder for any commuter cyclist…

  • Nitro

    Cool TdF graphic…. though I have to wonder how most of the mountain stages look picturesque and mountain-like, while Mont Ventoux is made to look about as dramatic as a speed hump!

    • oakie

      That is an excellent teaser – it really brings the route to life. If this is the start of the journey with Dimension data, then really I look forward to seeing it develop

    Rider transfer fees make sense. it would be a good funding boost to teams like Avanti, who do a great job at getting riders into the WT.

    • Stompin

      +1… I agree, and it can only encourage lesser teams to keep developing younger riders for the future

      • Abdu

        Transfer fees (where a % goes all the way back to the original club/s) has only been in place by FIFA for 10-15 years…

        Viduka’s transfer kicked $1m+ over to Melbourne Croatia when he signed for Leeds Utd all those years ago…

        Not rocket surgery..

  • Jessy Vee

    It pains me to see Doug Ryder so distraught over Louis Meintjes leaving MTN Qhubeka, but I’m not really sure what he expected? Meintjes is 23 and starting to show his talent and bigger teams are taking notice. Why shouldn’t he make the move up to World Tour status and enjoy the benefits that go with it? MTN Qhubeka is only a second tier team, and yes, they’ve done a really good job in developing his skills, but he is not theirs to have and to own. Riders swap teams all the time – he’s young and he might be going where the money is. If he didn’t have a 2016 contract with the team, maybe they should have tried harder to keep him instead of spending most of the budget on Cavendish?

    Also, I hate to say it, but that Lance Armstrong movie looks good. Same old story, though.

    • Abdu

      Expecting it to end differently?

      Hehe

      • Sean

        No spoilers please, some of us haven’t watched it. Do you even race Abdu?

        • Jessy Vee

          The good guys wear white cycling caps, and the bad guys wear black ones. I was so confused for a while there. Lucky I worked it out!

        • Abdu

          Waddya even mean do I race? Pah. Mortal…

          Have you not seen my magnificent sprinting technique?

    Higher quality version of the TDF route.

    • Nitro

      Yep – I’d call that slightly more than a passing resemblance…

    I don’t often comment as its always a good read, and im not signed in – but there is nothing good about that car vs bike, stopped watching a guy following rules vs a guy breaking them all, halfway through – shouldn’t be given any screening

    • Sean

      PS – you’re still not signed in brah.
