  • Any feeds yet goat?

    My rudimentary Dutch informs me that the first part of Sporza's programme (0900-1000hrs CET) was Belgium only. All the dodgy feeds from steephill are showing football now. However, they're back on at 1100 CET so hopefully something soon.

  • They had a feed of the sign in but nothing for a couple of hours (well, one hour now)
  • CN reports Boonen down... and has packed.

    Reports that Boonen is out already. Stopped for a toilet break and crashed when moving back up through the field apparently :?
  • Anyone know where there's a live feed at the moment?

    Boonen really has had a shitty 6 months. I predict another "pissed and coked in a bar" incident shortly. He's probably getting a might narked...

    Boonen confirmed as out of the race and is being taken to hospital. So his season is basically a write-off already.
  • Eliot Lieter of Topsport looks like he's out too after basically knocking himself out.

    I know they're professionals and this is really important for his team, but you wonder how much additional damage riders do struggling on when the race is basically over. I get it during a stage race, but in a one day?

    Het voorjaar van Tom Boonen is afgelopen.

    Which I think means Boonen's spring is over.

    Anyone have news on ladies race? Or is that for another thread?

    Sorry to hear about Boonen, shame that his attempt to follow up his fantastic year last year has been de-railed by illness and crashes. I don't think he could have won, but might have been able to at least mix it up for Chavanel.

    Might lose my poise for a minute if Eurosport is a nanosecond late going to the bike race.

    There is no way they're starting on time. A new frame of snooker just started. It's the 6th in a best of 19 game. :shock:

    That is exactly what it means. The spring for Tom Boonen is finished. No Roubaix then.

    7 minutes to go until coverage resumes on Sporza.

    The referee is measuring to see if the pink will go back on the spot.

    Sad to see Boonen out.

    Would have loved a Boonen, Sagan, Cancellara battle. Maybe next year.




    What would he target later in the year? What's the Worlds circuit like?

    It's not one for Tom. Pretty hilly.
