Good to see Big Mat riding at the back todaymr_spin

At least we know their bikes weren't stolen. The tour creates a slot for these guys and they waste it! Nothing. No riders doing anything. I would think that they would at least try to get up to the front to see what's going on, but no...always at the back. I wonder if they even know who's in yellow, green, and polka dots?

If my choice were between getting dragged around France for three weeks or staying home and watching it on TV, I think I'd rather stay home. Riding the tour without even trying to get a result can't be that much fun.

Heck, they could've done more with that slot than Big Mat... ya think??

Was Big Mat one of those teams that got in on the last round of invites... that were handed out to all French teams?

Ridin' large...

If Leblanc has to go down to the 12th ranked team of Division 2 just to find another French squad to put in the TdF what is really the point?

Even if Mercury, Saeco or Mercatone Uno didn't challenge for a jersey they would have all provided some very outstanding moments without a doubt.
