Good old Sagan, stacking those second places. :p Ewan has been untouchable in the sprints. :mumble:

Eurosport has taken over all exclusive rights for the Giro d'Italia and other RCS-organized races like Milano - San Remo for the next four years :cry:

 

I don't know if it goes for all countries, but here it means both Dutch and (much worse) Belgian TV can't show anything live anymore...especially that last part is just pure horror for cycling fans in this part of Europe :(

Andrei Grivko :UKR (Astana) has been kicked out of the Dubai Tour after punching Marcel Kittel :GER (Quick-Step Floors) in the face during the fighting for echelons in today's stage :facepalm:

It's only february, but Valverde is already racking up wins and podiums. :d This guy is such an anomaly of an athlete.

Tour of Oman has been won by Ben Hermans :BEL of BMC, Valverde :ESP of Movistar won the Ruta del Sol and Roglic :SLO of LottoNL-Jumbo took the glory in the Algarve, to sum up this week :d

 

Too bad Oman is such a "meh" race that they only have the last 100 meter live or something..thanks to Eurosport the Ruta del Sol and the Volta ao Algarve were all easy to follow :)

 

Just one more week and then all the preparation races in Australia and the Iberian Peninsula and catching some money in the sand in the Middle East is over and the season can really start with the Omloop :cheer:

African championships ended today with the road races.

 

Although we are far away from Olympic qualification, it's fun to see which nations would probably earn quotas if this edition was qualifying event. It would be :BUR and :SEN, both of whom never participated in cycling before. :SWZ Swaziland wouldn't be far away actually.

 

African road qualification is always one of those very unpredictable events.:cheer:

Although to be fair, not even one of Africa's serious pro cyclists was there.. :p 

 

The Janse van Rensburg's and Kudus' of this world would probably be pretty far ahead (as long as it's a bit of a testing course) :d

That wouldn't matter as the likes of :RSA and :ERI will always qualify through rankings. :evil:
