Although there is some sort of cycle race going on in Italy, the non-Eurosport subscribing members know nothing about it (and we suspect that the Eurosport-subscribing member is not watching, if only due to the execrable commentary).
However, ITV4 brings us relief with the very entertaining #ATOC, or Amgen Tour of California. Radioshack seem to have taken their (and almost ours) mind of 60 Minutes with a brutal performance on the hills, with a fine GC win for Horner. More interesting, perhaps, for the Trois V was the great coverage of the ascent of Mt Baldy, a col (actually, it's not a col as you have to turn around and come back down) that I now want to climb. Meanwhile, here's a salute to 'uncle of the Trois V', who's been there already, and without the ridicululous fools who dressed up in Sumo suits, etc. (ok, it's a different mountain, but you get the point): http://www.troisv.cc/2010/05/assault-on-mount-mitchell.html
Closer, to home, we are also pleased to have the excuse to talk about Victoria Pendleton and Lemon Drizzle cake in the same sentence.
