Simon Yates wins the Vuelta. This year's grand tour winners are:
Giro d'Italia - Chris Froome (UK)
Tour de France - Geraint Thomas (UK)
Vuelta a Espana - Simon Yates (UK)

Let that sink in.

You wouldn't get the good leg of a top footballer for that.

The team is good value for sure but it's buying your way into the big tours that costs the real money - a lot of "lobbying" costs in there. Look at AquaBlue - you'd need to be a billionaire, not just a millionaire, to make the grade.

Christ, they must have sacked all the sub-editors in the Indo, or maybe they think MacKenna is Joycean or something.

Anyway, I think he’s suggesting in the article that now that Sky are no more, omerta might not be as strong.
Will the all the extended team stick to the story/silence? Only time will tell.

So now we're getting definite links back to Team GB as well as Sky. Is this the first link to Team GB - the golden team of London 2012?

Shocked, so I am.

Imagine if Sir Mo manages to 'improve' enough to turn over Kipchoge in London..........
