Bradley Wiggins has criticised Team Sky, stating 'Go somewhere else, because they'll ruin you'. Honestly I don't fully disagree, no-one in the Sky team really gets much glory in the big tours unless your Froome, I've seen riders capable of Top 10 finishes being demoted to domestiques at Sky.

In other news, Mark Cavendish has concussion and a whiplash injury following a crash on the Abu Dhabi tour. Hope he's okay.

Cavendish looked in a sorry state as he rode in on a road bike folllowing that crash probably better for the rest of his season that he did not struggle on injured.

So the Tour de Yorkshire's starting next Thursday cheer.gif Will anyone be watching? They've extended it to four days this year - glad they've got some hilly stages before the final stage as well, should certainly mix it up a bit.

To be honest it would be nice to see someone else win it. Here's hoping for at least a bit of competition.
