You’re a horse and cart of a man fair play :clap:

Aquablue not going for a continental licence for 2019. Shame. Have said that they’ve made mistakes but in the end weren’t getting the invitations to races.


#825

Who will pick up eddie the engine


#826

What mistakes did they make?


#827

It was in their statement that they had made fundamental mistakes. Didnt get into it.

Id imagine being naive in not getting more sponsors on board was a major one really


#828

A bit more about the crash. I think your man Rick is from Cork, explains a lot.


#829

Hes a v successful guy but has a v large ego. Kimmage called him out almost from day1


#830

Kimmage should recognise that character trait alright


#831

ah that was fantastic. smashing race.
should hold the worlds there every year, great course


#832

Great finish. Pity the drug cheat won though. That 28% part was horrendous.


#833

Twould fair sicken you watching that cheating Spanish fucker win it though. Like vino at the Olympics

Lance Armstrong trying to pull off one last heist.

This cunt


#837

Great win for Bennett today. Nice way to finish the season


#838

Tour de France route for 2019 has just been announced. Tough route as always but only 54 kms of Time Trialling. That won’t suit the likes of Dumoulin but he’ll be well up there. Could be an opportunity for someone like Roman Bardet for the GC. Will also suit Dan Martin.


#839

Sky have just announced that they are pulling out of sponsoring the team after next season.


#840

With all the lads making the switch from Legal TV to IPTV they’d struggle to afford to keep sponsoring them :slight_smile:


#842

Meanwhile McLaren are announcing a tie up with Bahrain-Merida today.

Too toxic at this stage
