You cannot help but feel for Christian Prudhomme. In his 10 years at the head of the Tour de France the amiable Frenchman has set himself the mission of livening up the event, making it less predictable and processional, and, as far as possible, ensuring suspense is maintained to the end. The route has been endlessly tweaked, with every sacred traditional cow apart from the finish on the Champs Élysées consigned to the abattoir. The Tour has been turned into a made-for-television sports event rather than a bike race that happens to be shown on the small screen.
Prudhomme cannot, however, have reckoned with Chris Froome and Sir Dave Brailsford. This year, in spite of his best efforts, they provided a race lacking in suspense for almost half its distance. The Tour was won after Froome opened decisive gaps in the Ardeche time trial on the second Thursday. Those stages in the Alps and Jura, carefully plotted by Prudhomme’s No2 Thierry Gouvenou, included new climbs, steep climbs, short climbs, long climbs, magnificent backdrops and insanely spectacular hairpins, but the same spectacle: Brailsford’s climbers chugging up and down the slopes with Froome sitting pretty in yellow in their wake.Continue reading...

@niallmcveigh It's been reported to death, but the highlight will be of Froome running up Ventoux. How could it not be? Madness.
The race has begun in Chantilly, albeit in an early, neutralised phase around the Chateau de Chantilly. These cobbled roads hosted the start of the Paris-Roubaix race for 10 years, between 1966 and 1976. Jersey winners Froome, Peter Sagan, Rafal Majka and Adam Yates ride out in front.Continue reading...
