And they're done! 2018 has seen the biggest (and best) Tour de Fox yet with 11 teams taking part, and new features added to make things even more interesting.
This year saw the introduction of Dr Lambourghini, the riders' first choice for an unfair advantage (no EPO or dog's blood available, however - just good honest pointy elbows, espressos, and itching powder amongst other things).
Anyone noticed Ian Hall's been a bit quiet recently? Well it's because he's been plotting (and training at the Fox Studio). On Sunday he'll be riding the Ride:London event in aid of Penny Brohn UK. Ian added: “Penny Brohn is local to Pill, where I live, and provides care not just for cancer sufferers but for those who care for and support them.
Join Ian as he cycles for 24 hours! Ian Schroeter is raising money for Nicola Corry Support Foundation which provides support for families affected by cancer. To do this, he's cycing non-stop for 24 hours at the Fox studio. Book yourself a slot and pedal alongside - and bring a donation, or donate to his Just Giving page. You can book your slot here.
Ian will start pedalling on Saturday 28th July at 7pm and head through the night and finish on Sunday 29th July at 7pm. Who's in?
Well, well, things are heating up nicely. We're now into the 'harder' bits of the Tour (if that were possible), and heading towards the third and final week.
The contenders are taking shape - it's all change at the top - Pilot P (Direct Energie) is leading the field for the Maillot Jaune, followed closely by Bella (Lotto Soudal).
The Combativity prize for the most aggressive rider is looking like it's going to be Vicky's (Movistar) - unless Claire (Astana) just nicks it at the last minute (quite possible, as she's very combative...) Last week then, and anything can happen. Particularly if Doctor Lambourghini turns up....
