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).
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....
