Scheldeprijs on now.

The last moment of shoulder-rubbing, bollard crashing, cross-winding, gutter lining Belgian racing before the Ardennes and stage races pick up for the rest of the year.

    You have all that and more in Turkey. Obviously, when it rains, the roads turn to ice.
    Crashes everywhere.
    Long way to go in this Belgian sweetie.....

    I'm going to miss the cobbles classics. Certainly the most exciting part of the year for me. The Ardenne classics just don't do it quite as well.

    From cyclingnews....

    3000 metres to race. Who is going to win this race? Remember, Cavendish is not racing

    Sign of the times?
    :shock:

    Petacchi. Winning a sprint. For a change.

    It's magical, isn't it. Not knowing who was going to win a sprint in advance...

    Could catch on!

    bad crash involving McEwen, apparently. I didn't see it.
    QS didn't really contest the finish.
    May get a replay posted on that Sporza hightlights thingemy.

    and here it is. The last 2kms plus replays of the utter carnage.

    Looked like McEwen put Greg VA into the barriers, but came off worst of all.
    Boonan was also caught.....as was everybody else!

    looks like a racing incident , hard to attribute blame from the heli shot...anyone get a better view? A costly accident it has been

    Not sure Boonen will be too bothered. He's off on a holiday now anyway :)

    Was certainly a heavy crash for many. Not a great finishing 'straight' at the best of times.

    Various 'opinions' from the riders. Van Avermaet blamed Petacchi for coming across to the left on him, & McEwen said Van Avermaet was just too slow.

    I think it was just a racing incident really. Van Avermaet went damn early with his sprint and didn't really find much speed to be honest. When Petacchi went past it was game over and McEwen wanted to squeeze by too...
    The slow motion replay really showed one hell of a fall for McEwen. Lucky not to have broken anything but he's a tough old censored .

    In the end it looked damn easy for Petacchi. Even without the fall the only person who had any chance of beating him was McEwen.
