Valgren wins the real first race of the season ;)

I missed most of the race but considering how big the group was at the end it seems like this was a really disappointing edition of the Omloop. Also, why the hell did they change the course. The old Omloop route was great and basically always led to great racing. No reason to include the crucial points of the Ronde in every single cobbles classic only because they are now not crucial in the Ronde anymore.

The opposite, really :d 

 

It was exciting until the end, with a lot of attacks (much better than in previous years).

Honestly I don't care where they are, as long as there's a decent live stream I'm watching it :p (San Juan's live streams were wonderful for example)

Oh come on. We get live images from inside tunnels nowadays, but a bit of rain and RAI can't give us anything anymore, just pictures of the finish? :lol:

Still not sure if this is World Tour race Strade Bianche, or the South Eritrean youth championships.
