Oh Wiggins, oh Bradley
I love you quite madley
You look tres sexee
In the yellow jersey
Vous etes tres bon
Avant le peloton
With your mates Cav and Froome
To Paris you'll zoom
Do your side burns help you steer?
When you win I will shed a tear.

Just marking place. When does tour start then?

evilgiraffe Fri 17-Aug-12 06:40:16

9th September, Mini. Stage one is Ipswich to Norfolk Showground. The final stage finishes in Guildford on 16th September.

The Vuelta must be starting soon, too. Apparently ITV4 will be showing highlights smile

The Vuelta starts tomorrow! Come on Froome! Ian Stannard from TeamGB is also taking part. It's brilliant that ITV4 will be showing the highlights grin.

Looking forward to tomorrow! Not keen in Froome dog normally but would love (and feel he deserves) him to beat contqdor on his return!

Yay itv4-they have done a good job on the cycling smile

So, anyone else think wiggo drank too much after the Olympics to be competitive in Denmark?!! cynic wink tbf he does deserve a party after all the sacrifices he has made smile

Hi all. News is that wiggo is on holiday in mallorca and is not doing the tour of Denmark anymore. [http://www.independent.co.uk/sport/general/others/cycling-bradley-wiggins-return-put-on-hold-after-sky-rest-him-for-tour-of-denmark-8053910.html looky here]

I will be supporting Froome dog.

Hi GoCav.

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Fri 17-Aug-12 22:44:32

sorry here

evilgiraffe Fri 17-Aug-12 22:48:10

Nah, Seashells, I reckon they're resting him so he can look all regal and magnificent rather than a bit tired for his adoring fans in the Tour of Britain.

GO FROOMEDOG! Not yet though, tomorrow please. Hopefully he's getting some sleep right now. Nsomfunny that Froomedog has become his name, simply because he seemed so baffled by it. Brilliant smile

evilgiraffe Fri 17-Aug-12 22:48:44

Ahem. That should be "So funny", of course.

evilgiraffe Sun 19-Aug-12 16:59:24

Wiggo's announced he's doing tour of Britain! Hurrah! grin no word on Cav or Millar yet though...

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Mon 20-Aug-12 14:33:24

Evil - not that we would be stalking at all. grin

Ride with Brad looked like it was a massive success!

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Mon 20-Aug-12 22:52:17

Froome doing well at the Vuelta. 4th currently, good lad.

evilgiraffe Tue 21-Aug-12 07:01:51

Yay Froome!


SeashellsAllezModInYellowAllez Tue 21-Aug-12 09:17:12

I'm trying to figure out how u can justify a 4hr round trip whilst my mil is visiting...so exciting smile

WhitesandsofLuskentyre Tue 21-Aug-12 22:06:19

The Tour is passing within 200 metres of my front door! AaaaggghhH! How excited?!

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Tue 21-Aug-12 22:29:44

Lucky thing whitesands!

Seashells I am sure you will think of something.

Vuelta quite exciting. Crashes, Froome 2nd. Accusations that team sky caused crash etc. ! It's all kicking off!

evilgiraffe Tue 21-Aug-12 22:35:23

I think Movistar were getting a bit daft, saying that Sky caused the crash (and on purpose too). Not sure whether the peloton should have waited for Valverde or not though - they can't pin all the blame on Sky, especially as BMC and Katusha took their turns too. I imagine it's going to be a rather uncomfortable atmosphere for our boys tomorrow.

Whitesands - how lucky are you?! Great stuff smile

Seashells, there's bound to be a good excuse in there somewhere. Would MIL be remotely interested in cheering on cyclists?

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Tue 21-Aug-12 22:54:14

I think TOB is going to be on ITV4 for those of us who don't have a peloton going past the housewink. Mini we might be visiting that weekend. Argh, the banner!

Evil, Froome does not seem the type of lad who would do that on purpose. He did see the crash tho. And carried on with a load of others. You are right. A tricky day tomorrow for team sky. Latin temperaments etc.

Dammit, I go out for a few drinks and it all kicks off in the Vuelta! Halfmum and mini, I'm expecting great things of your ToB banner. I reckon MN could surpass the Ode especially with added Cav smut grin!

On a completely unrelated note <cough>, I've just booked a cycling holiday blush.

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Wed 22-Aug-12 13:13:41

GoCav - unrelated ha! Its not in France is it??

ToB Ode to Team Sky ideas please everyone

Minimammoth Fri 24-Aug-12 21:41:43

O o o. Lost thread. Alas can't get time off coincidng with T o B. Brain clogged so no Ode ideas forthcoming. So let's have your Cav smut Gocav.

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Wed 05-Sep-12 10:56:45

GoCav are you watching the Road to Glory on Sky Atlantic? lots of Cav action on there for you.

Am contemplating time off to watch TOB nearbyish. Depending on what time it starts.

evilgiraffe Wed 05-Sep-12 13:38:30

No sky tv for me, or I'd be watching it sad

DH has just signed us up for the RideLondon ballot for next summer - squeeeeeee! Fingers crossed we are both allowed in!

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Wed 05-Sep-12 22:54:18

Good luck evil.

TOB Welshpool leg starts at 10.15am. hmmm...

HalfMumHalfBiscuit Sat 08-Sep-12 18:09:12

Ladies, come hither! I have started another thread specially for the tour of Britain. Hope you can join me for more lusting cycling fan chat. Missing it!

Pull up the sofa, it starts tomorrow!
