Who was going to expose themselves to get him back? At that stage with those riders it would almost be impossible to get away. Wiggo had a go and thats as much as he could do. Having said that 9th is bloody good.
Just looking back at the point Terptra attacked and nobody chased. Cancellara would never have got away at that point.
apologies that this too late for today but http://www.steephill.tv always has a list of live tv streams for the classics, there will be a few places which carry british eurosport feeds for the Amstel Gold race, Fleche Wallone and Leige in the coming weeks.
Never saw that coming. Looked like the chasers couldn’t organise themselves fast enough, and didn’t want to expose themselves. Interesting dynamic. I’d love to hear the post race “discussion”. And £3.99/month for Eurosport Player streaming HD looks reasonable value for me. Amstel Gold next week…
I had a brilliant weekend in France.
Paris-Roubaix Challenge on Saturday – 170km and all the cobbles – they are absolutely brutal from the first (easy) one. My Boardman CX with 28mm tyres was pretty perfect. Great day in the saddle. Ten of us rode it and no punctures / mechanicals between us – sweet!
Some of the gang went to Arenberg to watch as they were heading for the tunnel and home afterwards. Great atmosphere apparently.
The rest of us watched under the big screen in the velodrome, dreaming that we’d see G or Wiggo win. Superb to watch and see these guys close up.
Top weekend – thoroughly recommended to anyone.
