It’s finally all over. The barricades are long gone and the riders are off to various parts of the world before the next big thing. But for three weeks in July, the riders knock into one another every single day, gentle, or not, reminders of a line, a wheel. And who better to ask about the experience of a Tour de France than an eyes-wide-open rookie? (velonews.com)

Even though there were some strong indications given that Bradley Wiggins would continue his road career as Team Sky rider, apparently his recent return to the track racing at the Commonwealth Games has changed his perceiving and the four time Olympic gold medalist put such scenario under a question as he aims to focus completely on Rio 2016.

Okay, so I know the entire population of the U.K. isn’t as eccentric (or funny) as John Cleese, but I can’t think of any place that produces people so colossally at odd with their talent as the population in those islands.

Juan Jose Lobato finally broke his string of near-missed when he won today’s hilly third stage of the Tour de Wallonie in impressive fashion. In a tough uphill sprint, he powered clear of the peloton to easily hold off Gianni Meersman and Silvan Dillier, passing several riders who had started their sprint too early. Meersman finished second for the third day in a row which was enough to extends his overall lead. (cyclingquotes.com)
