Too bad stud Italian cyclist, Vincenzo Nibali, had his hopes for the pink jersey dashed, at least yesterday. As he was ascending the mountain, his chain broke. A fan, maybe well meaning, maybe not, stepped forward to "help" and broke off his rear derailleur. He had to wait several seconds for a replacement bike and then continue uphill.

The annual European Rugby Champions Cup came to its exciting conclusion last week, with Saracens F.C. kicking their way to a 21-9 championship win over Racing 92.
It was the first Champions Cup in ten years without a try, i.e. decided totally by penalty kicks. And, the great Owen Farrell of Saracens was the man with the golden foot, kicking a perfect seven out of seven. What could you do to top that?
