Can you come up with a Tour de France headline?

by d_jp   July 9, 2013  

Taking some inspiration from VecchioJo's "High & Dolomitey" headline I was thinking - what headlines might we see at the Tour this year?

As a starter for 10 (although it's probably only worth a 6, if that Wink)...

I think it has to be modelled on the best headline of the last 12 months:

Flapjack whack rap claptrap

School ban on 'dangerous' triangle oat snacks

Hmm.

You're wrong. This is the best headline of the last 12 months:

No, that's just the most-retweeted blatant photoshop of the last 12 months.

In my view the best headlines always come from Lake District local news

If a certain French Cofidis rider causes a chute involving a young Dutch sprinter: Coppel topples Van Poppel.

"Froome at the top" is I'm sure pencilled in for at least three of the newspapers come Paris...

The ridiculously contrived ones are the best though. I'm holding out for a bizarre outburst from the Vacansoleil sprint brothers, claiming a certain German sprinter is lazy.

"Pops call Kittel slack".

I'm sure there's something more in that, but that's the best I can come up with...

"Froome beaten by Ten Dam seconds"

could be an unlikely one today if Belkin and Sky finish 1-2 in the TT?

"Boom collides with Ferrari and lands on Bonnet"

(Could sound like a dodgy insurance claim if you translate Boom into English, as it's dutch for tree... it came out of nowhere it did... Wink)
