    Winning the Tour is by far the biggest challenge in cycling and, prior to Wiggins, a Brit had never won it.

    Leaving aside the differences in status between the two races, I would think that one of the reasons no-one thought it a high priority to put a team together to help Pooley win the Giro Donne was that Nicole Cooke had already done it, in 2004.

    “However, I would like to talk about my personal experience and say that Shane is one of the main reasons I am where I am today. He has always wanted the best for *male, able bodied* British riders, and gone the extra mile for us.

    Sutton is the Trump of cycling,,,,,

    So Geraint Thomas thinks there is no place for inequality in sport? Sorry G, that’s the whole point of professional sport, to find out who is better than the rest.

      You’re confusing opportunity with outcome.

        No I’m not. I’m responding to his clear and simple statement. You may assume he meant something more, I don’t.

    Geraint Thomas with the classic “always been cool to me” line. Of course he was. you’re a dude.

    In my book winning the Feminine Giro is the number 1 challenge for a lady racer. Followed by the Tour of Flanders for a one day race.
    The Olympic 1 day race would be my last pick for a pro rider.
