Le Tour 2018

Interesting that they reduced the teams to 8 riders.

Be interested to see how aggressive other teams will be in attacking Sky.

BMC didn’t bring Evans, total focus on GC win for Richie Porte.

Crazy end to stage 1.
3 seperate incidents put several GC riders down 50secs+

Different Evans Grassy. Cadel retired a few years ago now 😉

Fair enough and yes Phil is a great commentator...

SBS coverage and comments are brilliant and insightful. A few channels covering other sports could learn a thing or 2 about it...

I feel for Ritchie.
Since leaving Sky, he has been cursed in this race 😢
