Was staying in the Belfast hilton. Still avoid the Europa after my old business partner told me the story about his parents wedding getting bombed.

Admin2 has stayed in the Europa. My wife had a yuppy flat across from the cinema for a few months which was decent. Made the mistake of not exploring the cathedral quarter whilst I was there. The dirty onion is a decent pub.

Hope we get a genuine battle in the tour this year.

Anyone know the status of Froome? Is contador riding the tour as well? And the Colombian chap?

Hope so, could be a proper tour for once.

Quintana is my favourite cyclist at the moment. Not sure what froome and contatdor are doing. I suspect he will do the Giro and Tour though.

That's it, Nairo Quintana.

I was in Colombia whilst the vuelta was on last year and they were gutted when he fell and injured himself, even a cab driver spoke about it to me.

Looking very tasty for the TdF.

Don't forget Nibali. Even though he benefitted from a number of misfortunes to his rivals, he won very authoritatively last year. It was a shame the others weren't around to test him.

Don't think teams have been announced yet, but if Nibali has the support of Aru and Landa, they could be a real nightmare for their opponents in the mountains.

Nairo is more than capable of winning it imo, but he's comparatively inexperienced, so that could play against him.
