Is it using the same kit for 29 days straight? Riding Europe East to West? Or, perhaps it could be something that we've never heard of. We'd like to hear about it though, so let us know down in the comments. The Criterium du Dauphine kicked off with a brutal 4km prologue in Les Gets. Alberto Contador and Chris Froome faced off for the first time this summer – we can't wait for the Tour de France! As usual, we have all of your favourites: comment, tweet, caption, hacks, bodges and wattage bazooka! Comment, and SHARE this one too!
