the 2018 spring classics thread
Did anyone catch Tro Bro Leon coverage after Amstel? That looks as hard, if not harder than Paris Roubaix. I’d heard about it but never realised how difficult that parcours was. Like Strada Bianca, maybe we will these mixed surface races gain more prominence and world cup points.

Its quite clear that this years Classics (and I guess many other editions) have been characterised by a fairly large group of favourites marking each other out. Amstel being a good example. Does the collective think that in the Flèche, as in other minor classics, this is less of a feature and actually results in more exiting racing?
I still can’t see beyond Valverde winning especially as the team seem to be targeting the race now for a record number of wins.
Also, as a slight hijack, did anyone ride the Two Bro Leon sportive and would they mind if I PM’d them for info?

Slowly turning into a quickstep fanboi – can’t seem to help myself at the moment! Been an Alaphilippe fan ever since Tony Martin took him on a 200km 2-up TT the day after he had beasted himself through the mountains, so happy to see him get it.
