With the cancellation of Paris-Roubaix this weekend, I thought I’d be struggling for a big story. But NO! It was as if we all stepped into Dr Peabody’s Wayback Machine and arrived at the peak of Mark Cavendish’s pomp. He took the day in Monday’s stage of the Tour of Turkey and it looked like he went so fast he turned the clock back. Plus we have the return of Fabio Jakobsen, a generous Primoz Roglic and some pavé.
It was a packed packed schedule over the weekend and we have all the goings-on from the Dauphine – Pinot plus Musketeers, and Baby Daisy Sepp Kuss, a second Monument for one of Midge’s favourite Danes, hailstorms and the Summer of George. Let’s get to it!
Racing from Portugal and Spain, riders with points to prove and a Beatles song.
