Don't be too disheartened. During a quiet bit last week, Millar was rabbitting on about the approach of some of the smaller teams, and he was full of praise for WGG's clear objectives and how they were meeting them - or something like that. Suffice to say that but for your posts I wouldn't even have noticed.I'm trying to whip up more support for them.
Without much success, it seems
It gets better; this is the basis used when the Tour was decided on points, from 1905 to 1912. Alaphilippe has won the Tour!What an excellent idea. Not only does it wangle Alaphilippe the win that we all crave, but it also gets two Wanty Groupe Gobert riders in the top 10. (well almost, Meurisse is tied in 10th place)

As an aside, this goes some way to explain why I'm such a fan of WGG. Since they first showed up in the TdF about 3 or 4 years ago they have always been visible, always busy. They were busting a gut for Pasqualon on the Champs Elysees yesterday even though they knew they really weren't in with a chance (I think he came in 16th). (And they just won the first two stages and currently hold the lead in the Tour of Walonie).
It was in the bumpf that you should have read before entering!When will itv4 ring me up and tell me I've won the Boardman bike package?
You've got feel a twinge of sympathy but can you imagine Chris Froome reacting like that?
But we only see Froome days after the event, an event that was his own fault (I think). Pinot is just so unluckyYou've got feel a twinge of sympathy but can you imagine Chris Froome reacting like that?
Look how he's dealing with a life/career threatening crash to contrast what it takes to have the winning mentality top athletes need.
Potentially first French winner of the Tour since 1985, showing great form having pulled back a lot of what he lost in the crosswinds stage. Something he had been working towards all his adult life.Minutes after his abandonmentI like a bit of passion but Pinot.Yea I feel for him but I do for everyone else as well (Barr Bouhanni obviously ! ) Get over it and move on.
