    Shame about all the lags on the streams. Barely watchable. Was tempted to pay for 3 months of Cycling.tv, but there is so little information on their website that I decided against it. I had bad experiences with them in the past and don't want to give them money when they aren't even saying which races they will cover after this weekend.
  • They are closing down streams as fast as they are opened up.
    Worst culprit is RTBF, which used to be free to watch on tv. :x

    Talk of the devil:

    It’s the most beautiful sport in the world but it’s governed by ***ts who have turned it into a crock of ****.

    Quick-step trying to arrange a chase to get the group that's gotten out ahead - it's well represented with a few good names...

    Yesterday they were caught doing too much too early.

    Just tuned in - peleton had split - hence QS trying to arrange a chase, with devolder in the 2nd peloton, naturally - chasing very hard...

    Seems that teams are finding it tougher to arrange chasesd without radios...
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 46,780 Lives Here
    Rabo join QS - they don't want the 2nd peloton to rejoin.

    Devolder is riding eye-balls out to get back in touch

    The break ahead of the first peloton I believe.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 46,780 Lives Here
    Farrar's stuck in the 2nd peloton as well - hence steegmans working hard.

  • Any Belgian Classic ending in a bunch sprint is a failure. Hopefully when I come back in 30mins the field would have exploded.

    Kuurne is usually won from a sprint of some form or other.

    Anyone notice as soon as Weylandts got away the entire QS team chased him down?

    No hard feelings for leaving eh?

    See, this is another case for race radios. No radios = no directeurs to tell their riders not to be freakin' idiots.

    Wehay - Devolder dropped.

    QS were driving on the front.

    I know they call Kuurne the revenge race, but I doubt they meant it like that...

    Did they not watch Paris Roubaix?

    It's a pretty well known rule by now.

    I know, but you don't become a professional cyclist because of your brains, do you?

    They won't do it again, that's for sure...
  • From 2010, 09, 08, 07, 06, 05. The only bunch sprint was in 07.

    Lotto doing a lot of work now for Greipel. Farrar, Welyandt, EBH, Sutton, Kluge, Keukeleire also here if it's a sprint.

    ETA: Casper, too.
  • I would expect a bunch sprint in this race more than other Belgian races as it isn't as selective a parcours yet either way I'd prefer a non-bunch sprint in a one day race.
