Tour De France

stage 16 of the tour de france last year where floyd landis lost ten odd minutes on his rivals in the last 10km of the race.

The following day’s stage. Quite extraordinary even with what we know now. Excuse the music

The great Miguel Indurain cracks this time.


Tour De France 1987. Commentary is superb.


Smashing posts Piper looking forward to watching the lot of them.

I posted this ages ago but no harm in a repeat:

Roche’s incredible ride at La Plagne where he nearly caught Delgado

This is Roche being interviewed by Hugh McIllvaney about that stage with the relevant footage

Slightly longer highlights of that stage:

Roche winning the 1987 World Championships

Sorry Piper - posted the same footage at the same time as you there.

The one time post 1999 that Armstrong cracked badly on a mountain stage of the Tour. Interesting comments from Armstong regarding Pantani at the end.

I can’t seem to access the last video I posted anymore (the one where Armstrong cracks) when I try searching for it in youtube. Anyone know how I can watch it by using code above or something?

Fixed those for ya Larry. When you see a code

you can find the video by going to

When you get a chance you might put a couple of them into TFKTube

Lovely nod to Kraftwerk here.

I posted the route on the cycling thread. One for the climbers. No team TT just an individual TT in Marseille on the last Saturday.

You should have posted it in a Tour de France thread.

Salon de Provence is one of my favourite French towns. Delighted to see it get a stage finish.

I’ll set one up next year God willing.

You posted the itinerary for the Tour de France 2017 in the Cycling 2016 thread? What the fuck are you at?

Not really, unless there is a bit around Liege.

I couldn’t be arsed setting up 2017 yet. And I’d be getting notifications when every cunt posted into the thread.
