And so as their first moderately successful season draws towards its conclusion a new internet sport seems to be engraining itself on the minds of cycling fans.
"Sky Bashing" seems to be the hip trendy game out there right now. Sort of like a Tamagochi but in this millennium, You can probably even do it on an I-Phone Android, or something.
The rules seem to be quite simple. Hey you can even work for ITV4 and join in. You know what I mean Ned Boulting... your smile when Henderson had a shocker in Swansea and you could keep saying "Team Sky failed to keep the jersey" was a give away.
The aim of the game is to pick the most random fact or bit of information surrounding the team or one of its riders. You then taken that and turn it into a negative point. The more random the fact the more points on offer.
"Bradley Wiggins has a mods haircut" for example has been seen to mean "Bradley Wiggins spends too much time on his barnet and sideburns and doesn't ride his bike fast enough, hence he bombed in July".
So, let the games begin.
I am going with...
"They have too much money, boast about it and turn up in jags" meaning "The poorer funded French teams are riding against the pompous Brits"
Over to you...
