Only bought that after seeing it recommended here. Really worth it so far.

I've got a question about the kindle (if you're a kindle user, that is). Is it comfortable to read? Saw that it was in the tab/laptop convertible gadget. Their prices are far more tempting than the real book itself.

I have the kindle app downloaded (no charge from Amazon) on my iPad. As you say the prices are far better and the availability great. downloads take about 30 seconds. I thought I would battle but not sure I could go back now. The backlighting and adjustable font sizes also help my eyes.

Rogers has come out of his temporary doping suspension stronger than he went into it, and he was pretty strong when he got the ban. Just outsprinted Valverde, known for a really good sprint for a GC rider and Fuentes...

The whole Saxo Tinkoff team utterly looks dominant atm.

Contador leading the Vuelta a Espana followed by Valverde after stage 12. Froome is still falling off his bike & trails in fourth.

Tinkoff's porkies continuing. Pretty pathetic to try it twice in a couple of months. First in July with Majka saying he didn't want to ride the Tour and then Contador saying he definitely couldn't ride the Vuelta...

At least Froome's injuries were serious enough to see an evident dip in form. Shame to see Quintana drop out though.

Reported that Richie Porte was suffering from mild pneumonia throughout the TdF. Did well to finish as well as he did. He has now withdrawn from all events for the rest of the season to get fit for next year.

3 positives for Astana in the past month. 2 on EPO, the Iglinskiy brothers, and one for steroids, a young rider Ilya Davidenok.

Just poses another question about Nibali. May see another 2008 like situation with Astana though.

Dominant in the climbs. Thomas wasn't shabby either.... But the pair descended like pigs on valium.

Quintana dominated in the snow in Italy. Adam Yates came 7th alongside Contador (2-3 mins ahead of Nibali). Proper prospect.

The race is desperately calling to be killed. Amateur hour organisation every year.

Big win for Porte. Biggest of his career, I'd say. Beat some of the favourites for the Tour and Giro this week.

Hey Trike....who are your favorites for the Giro.?
Porte looks to be in his best form ever but i'm a bit wary of that.

Contador is the favourite, then Porte. Hopefully Porte doesn't have his one shitty day. Contador's team is unbelievably strong. Fabio Aru is the other major threat. There was a rumour that there's a blood passport case with Aru, quite possibly bollocks though.

Would prefer a Porte win or Aru. Contador just winds me up for some irrational reason.
