Tuesday Shorts 9/9

First rule of Fight Club.

Vuelta
Berts potential victory lessened by the absence of Kingtana? Nope. Froome is a cagey mofo. Dropped on two uphill finishes and came back to the group. Even attacked once he made it back. Still some critical stages left. What's up with all the fist fighting in Spain? Shouldn't cyclists use their legs? Scrawny arm fights are kinda lame.

Worlds
Froome bumps Sir Brad from British National Team...I kid. TJV leads 'Merica. Who will where the rainbow stripes in 2015?

Sir Brad and...

4 Kids. Long lost brothers?
