2. The latest instalment of #fatandyfriday is a cracker.

3. Marcel Sieberg didn’t have any problems with chubby cheeks as a young racer, but the fact that being 6’6″ makes it hard to get aero. To be fair, this position probably isn’t the best for aerodynamics

4. Alex Dowsett has found his new calling in life.

5. Chris Froome is preparing for his DNF at Liège-Bastogne-Liège on Sunday.

6. Lizzie Armitstead takes a well deserved break from the bike.

7. After last week’s insight into his sit-down wees, Ian Bibby shares another urination story with us.

8. “Life is not a hello kitty” – Frank Schleck, the modern day Socrates.

9. I take solace in the fact that a professional cyclist can also eat egg and bacon sandwiches for breakfast.

10. Luke Rowe is now all business as the ‘party at the back’ is given the chop.
