- PSA: Classics season starts this weekend
Cav on “O-symetric” rings, that’s circular ones then? 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Seen the highlights from yesterday. After the Jens’ retirement Stannard is my new riding hero 8) The Ettix lot messed up, surprising given their pedigree but watching Stannard seemingly ride them off his wheel and then overcome them in the sprint was damn impressive.Posted 5 years ago
I was hoping that the break would stay away, this might be one hell of a messy sprint now!
Nice to see Oude Kwaremont and Nokereberg, I’ve ridden those. 🙂Posted 5 years ago
Oh this is nail biting now!Posted 5 years ago
Get in!!!Posted 5 years ago
Wow, what a finish!
ace finish!Posted 5 years ago
Gotta love Gilbert, if only!!
😆Posted 5 years ago
Great weekend of racing!Posted 5 years ago
I thought Kristof had that then but a fine win for Cav. Enjoyed Gilberts late attack but he never quite got queer.Posted 5 years ago
Bouhani barely stayed on there. A good weekend for the brits after the track worlds.
Cavendish: ‘We talked this morning: I don’t think Wilfried Peeters thought I could make it today. At least the riders believed in me.
ouchPosted 5 years ago
Contract ends this year for him so I expect it’ll be like this throughout the the year with Peeters trying to get in a side swipe to keep costs down and Cav putting on a show of winning and wanting more $’s..
Some good showing from Viviani.. perhaps if Sky perfect some sort of lead out he might have a wheel out front too.Posted 5 years ago
just going to watch, while keeping a eye on the rugby…..Posted 5 years ago
Hope the next 8 weeks or so are as good as this weekend, as that was some true classic racing.
2 nill to the Brits then 😀Posted 5 years ago
Good stuff! Viviani’s jump onto the back of Cav was huge! MTN must have worked like dogs to bring that back, kinda wanted to see Bousen Hagen at the finish. Apparently he’s put on a fair bit of weight (muscle) so here’s hoping he’ll have a good Paris-Roubaix.Posted 5 years ago
Massive win for Cav, to get Kristoff beat so convincingly and so early in the year will boost him no end.Posted 5 years ago

Strade Bianche this Saturday! Then I’m off to see ‘love of mud’ CX film in the evening. Roll on the weekend!Posted 5 years ago
Great race that.Posted 5 years ago
Good race, good result!
Report back on Love of Mud tang, interested in getting to see that somehow.Posted 5 years ago
Yes, pleasing that the other two didn’t win it.Posted 5 years ago
😀 yeah quitePosted 5 years ago
Shame Valverde popped on the last 20mtrs of the climb IMO, but hey great finish that and well deserved.Posted 5 years ago
Stybar is a class rider. Right now I’m hoping I can make the film, down to one car today and I don’t get dibs…hoping for a lift.Posted 5 years ago
Looks bad for Boonen in Paris – Nice, slow speed tumble at the back of the peleton and it might be collar bone broken 😥Posted 5 years ago
Yup Boonan out.
Call it a fall from Grace.
I do feel sorry for him, over the last few years he’s been in the wrong place at the wrong time.Posted 5 years ago
Gutted for Boonen 🙁 , Voeckler is doing a shift though.Posted 5 years ago
Shame for Boonen. 2012 seems a long time ago now.
Good sprint today.Posted 5 years ago
Well for me the stage wasn’t about the finish, more about Tommy and DeLaPlace. 2 epic Frenchmen doing what they do best.. Pop off the front and ride until you get caught.
And pan flat too, no wind but plenty of tree lined roads only the French do best.
Great to see Bradley gesticulating wildly to the Bunch too.. 8)Posted 5 years ago
Arghhhh FFS!!! I’m bloody gutted for Boonen or more what he’d bring to the races coming up, what a complete ****!Posted 5 years ago
A well timed and much needed win today in TA ahead of Milan Sanremo this weekend. Much anticipation here 🙂
(^^^ hopefully avoiding spoilers)Posted 5 years ago
That was a strong finish! Bloody grim, would have been a DNF from me haha!Posted 5 years ago
Re-watched 2014 last night to get in the mood, forecast looks grim again 😀Posted 5 years ago
Yup gonna be a good one this year.
Really hard to look past the obvious choice of Kristoff if the weather is shite.Posted 5 years ago
Really hard to look past the obvious choice of Kristoff if the weather is shite.
I think the forecast is pretty shite.
Kristoff is an obvious choice until you check out the start list. A bit spoilt for choice with potential winners. Should be a cracking race.Posted 5 years ago
i would have said cavendish if he hadn’t had his south africa incident. Don’t know now. Stybar maybe. Stannard to drop swift at the finish?Posted 5 years ago
Stannard’s a good outside bet but it’ll definitely be a sprinter this year with the parcours being a little less lumpy that in recent years. Depending on how Cav recovered from his South African bug, he has to be one of the favourites. If he can stick with Sagan who’ll be shepherded over the Cipressa and up the Poggio then he’ll beat him. He was climbing well in Oman(?) before that and had the beating of Kristoff in KBK.
Jens Debusschere as another outside bet?Posted 5 years ago
I need 5 choices, I know it’s not in the rules but I need 5, not a top 5 just a spread – just in case.
Greg Van Avermart
Juan Jose Lobato
Stefano Pirazzi (or Enrico Battaglin)
Ok so thats 6, so what…Posted 5 years ago
Don’t forget the Rapha comp, guess the winning time:
I need 5 choices,
CancellaraPosted 5 years ago
Eddie B H
All behind Kristoff
As said, Kristoff must be the favourite but I have a feeling Sagan will finally bag it.Posted 5 years ago
