Not our usual subject matter but not your usual Tour de France – down to the wire!

We just wanted to congratulate Tadej Pogacar on a thrilling and spectacular win at the Tour de France. Like many folk, we though Team Jumbo Visma had the race tied up in the outstanding form of Primoz Roglic, but his Estonian compatriot Pogacar pulled out an extraordinary ride to snatch the winner’s jersey., for Team UAE Emirates.

We also wanted to mention Thomas de Gendt. He always provides plenty of entertainment in the Tour and this year was no exception. He is a great trier and a huge character. We hope he keeps riding for many more years. (Sorry – no photo)
