Thomas' and Yates' Giros are over.

I can't believe how unlucky/tactically **** Sky have been this season. Hopefully, they'll get their collective **** together before the Tour.

Thomas interview was typical of his manner.
"Yeah we're racing for position (probably around 40kmh) and we hit the deck. Pretty bad but they popped the shoulder back in, and I got back on for a 15k brutal climb"

Unreal these fella's

G has pulled out of the Giro this morning. The knee that he injured in the crash is getting worse.

I don't know what the Sky plan is but, it might be worth him sitting out the Tour and letting him lead the team at the Vuelta. If he's got to wait another year before having a crack at leading the team, I suspect he won't get the chance or have the form.
