I have become a glass half empty supporter

Geraint has to cycle into Paris this afternoon, what if he falls off his bike or a wheel comes off just yards before the finishing line.

The Senydd and some castles in Wales are to be floodlit yellow tonight, if he doesnโ€™t fall off that bike ๐Ÿšฒ

Or a cheating swine of a French policeman pulls him off his bike ? shock

Jalima1108 Sun 29-Jul-18 16:01:36

Come on Geraint, you can do it!!

Anniebach Sun 29-Jul-18 16:03:52

Oooooooh gilly ๐Ÿ˜ก Wales declares war on France , they may want revenge for what Jemima Fawr did to their army in 1797

Anniebach Sun 29-Jul-18 16:05:43

I am going to light I candle in my garden tonight if the wind calms down, well it will be sort of yellow ๐Ÿ˜€

Not Welsh, not a fan of cycling but.......

GO GERAINT !!

gillybob Sun 29-Jul-18 16:07:42

Did you see the photos of CF being dragged off his bike Annie ? apparently the policeman โ€œdidnโ€™t realise he was a competitorโ€ hmm yeah right !

MawBroon Sun 29-Jul-18 16:14:08

No, that was Chris Froome.
The French police have been something else this Tour.
Didnโ€™t they spray the cyclists with CS gas the other day or something in their attempts to control revolting farmers?

MawBroon Sun 29-Jul-18 16:14:55

Sorry Gilly I see that was what you said!

We are absolutly delighted with our Welshman Geraint claiming the winning place in this year`s Tour de France.........we watch yearly..........initially it was the superb scenery that caught my attention, but gradually I have joined my DH in watching the race itself......enthralling and nail biting stuff!!
We have gradually watched our British team Sky doing so well year on year,three winners from the team now............something to truly celebrate for sure.......whilst being Welsh.... and proud of it.......... of course thrilled that our Geraint has done the necessary.
Cheers all the way,we are soooooooooooproud!!

Panache Sun 29-Jul-18 17:28:19

Indeed I will join you with my best croaky voice Anniebach.............and I happily endorse all you say!!!
