Have only just realised that the Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne suffers from the Driedaagse De Panne syndrome, in that it is in reality the Kuurne-Kortrijk-Kuurne.  :mad:
 

Five man front group refuse to help van der Poel, get caught by a group of about 20.

 

And Mads Pedersen benefits with the sprint win.

Good news is that this year’s Tour of Britain is confirmed in its usual early September timeslot. - we had absolutely no cycling last year with lockdown.

The domestic calendar is also scheduled to restart in June, so hopefully some regular events can be scheduled.  Lots of international pro riders have come out of that scene, not just Brits.

The Eritreans are getting better and better, yesterday was an impressive result for them as a whole (I know they're of course not a team) in a pretty hard stage with a very hard finish.

And that's even without Kudus.

Couple of things we missed from Sunday’s French Cup Cholet-Pays de la Loire

 

  • Elia Viviani got his first win of the year
  • Nacer Bouhani got his first relegation of the year

Bouhanni behaves like a dangerous idiot for the 627743rd time in his aggression-filled career, that was still missing from this year indeed :p 

Should have said the race is on the GCN app (can be cast), but I couldn’t find it on the ES Player.

Valverde, who'll celebrate his 41st birthday later this month, took his 128th pro win and his first since August 2019 today in impressive fashion :bowdown:

At this point i'm certain that Valverde has the fountain of youth in his backyard :d
