My 3 favourite moments of 2012.

So these are mine. I could have quite easily filled the top 3 with Tom Boonen's spring but that was too easy. So I've tried to scratch my tiny brain and come up with moments you may well have...

Some good news from the UCI.

+

After a dismal year full of doping instead of the amazing achievements some good news from the UCI. Given the finances of cycling it is mainly symbolic but a step in the right direction nevertheless.

Wiggins going for TDF?!?!?

16

Watch those twitter sparks fly now! I bet Froome is seething..................{:-O

Fabian speaks.

3

Interesting stuff especially about JB and BR, di-opposing really.

Wiggins in road accident

4

What price Froome for TDF now? Fingers crossed Wiggo is all a ok. Van driver will be sweating on his mobile now.................

Cav spills beans on TDF '12

17

I think that's a fair ccount if anyone saw stage 7, Planche des Belles Filles for example. Now he has to back it up next year with OPQS, but he does seem to thrive on self pressure.

Cav deal done.

6

The least surprising new deal is done. OPQS train begins. Can't wait for MSR!

Too many Chiefs? Or top class Indians?

What do you think of this move? Cataldo is top drawer but where does he fit with Froome, Rogers, Porte etc?

Don't you love Flemish?!?!?!?!

26

Can't understand a word of it but it's great isn't it? It's the best language for cycling and I've loved it since I did the Ronde Sportive. p.s. God forbid someone tells me this is Dutch ;(

Nibali to Astana - confirmed.

6

Wow - and Iglinsky re-signs too. Astana are going to be very strong next year. Roman K to OHQS then?

Should I, shouldn't I? Or am I being an idiot?

Ok as you may know I had my CX bike stolen a few weeks ago, and my insurance has come through 100%. I had lined up a Basso Devil Cross frame with Ultegra and American Classic Victory wheels. Now I'm going to a book signing next week with Zdenek Stybar AND I've managed to source one of the super rare Stybar framesets in my size. Advice please from my honest PDC buddies. Do I sell the Basso and get the Specialized? Do I get the Specialized, get Zdenek to sign it and sell it or should I bin the whole idea as being a daft waste of vanity money and be happy with the Basso? I'm so confused!!!!!!! Cheers All.

Wiggins is Team Sky's new sprinter!

50

I mean, I'm not going to say he's now a sure thing for the TDF or any other hyperbole BS but come on, what a performance today. That was absolutely brilliant fun to watch to. He may dye his very badly cut hair but he can do what he likes if he keeps riding like that!

Is Cav the next Oscar?

Is Cav starting his conversion into the next Oscarito? Methinks yes, great move off Eisel's wheel. This is the difference between good (Farrar, Greipel etc) and great (Cav, McQ', Freire). The...
