One they definitely haven't used enough this year:

"Damiano Cunego: The Little Prince!"

Sherwen: Voeckler is an excellent descender.

Cue trip to the bushes for Voeckler.

Dave Brailsford will be happy to know that, according to Paul, Boassan Hagen is Sky's crown in their jewel. Confused

They all feel monster to me, sadly... Embarassed

Re: earlier reference to Cunego as the little prince, I can see why they'd use that as it's straight from the Italian press's nickname for him (they do love their nicknames...). But for some reason this year they're calling him Le Petit Prince. He hasn't changed nationality has he? If he gets into the break tomorrow (some hope), will PS say, "Phil, I believe he that for his escape he took advantage of the migration of a flock of wild birds..." *





* This may not make any sense to anyone who's not a fan of Antoine de St-Exupéry...

During the climb today, Phil went from Edward Boysen-Hagan, to Edvald Boasen-Hagan to Edvald Boysen Hagan.

So that's where I've been going wrong then.
