Remco Evenepoel and Wout van Aert have been chosen to represent Belgium in the Olympic time trial. No Victor Campenaerts, although he is the first reserve.

Last week Tom Dumoulin said he was looking forward to the season. Tour de France, Olympics and world championships were the main goals.   Today he announced he's going to take a break in his

And the organizers screwed up big time, just like the Tour de Pologne organizers last year....the fences/boarding were standing in an incredibly unsafe manner again, luckily Sacha Modolo seems to be alright.

Enric Mas heading for home in yellow in the Valencia ITT, looking like he had defended his lead from a strong performance by Stefan Küng - punctures with 500m to go!  :hairpull:

 

Loses 1:26, drops down to third overall, Küng into yellow. Flat city-centre circuit sprint day tomorrow, so no chance of getting anything back.

Meanwhile João Rodrigues gave W52/FC Porto it's biggest win ever, by taking the GC in the Volta ao Algarve after a fantastic final stage. It would definitely have been Ethan Hayter's win, but he fell in the ITT yesterday, held on to yellow, but then broke in the last kilometer today and ended up 9 seconds shy of the win. Rodrigues definitely didn't steal it though, he was the force that started the attacks on the final climb again and again until it worked.

The team won plenty of Tours of Portugal, but that's not nearly as big as this one. Although it's often quite fun to watch as well, one generally sees things there which are...interesting, in terms of magic performances :d

Tanger in Morocco :nopompom: 

Kigali in Rwanda :cheer: 

The worlds in Kigali would be great.

Imagine the world titles being decided on the Wall of Kigali, oh man. In terms of atmosphere it would be (by far!) the best big cycling race in history :bowdown:
