    The cycling season is finally about to start, folks.
  • tailwindhometailwindhome Posts: 15,915
    Cannondale just not fancy it?
    Believe that a farther shore
    Is reachable from here.
    Believe in miracles
    And cures and healing wells
  • I'm going out to take a look at the finish, I think.

    As has been mentioned, this is the start of the season as far as I'm concerned.

    No Haussler for IAM?

    Rick - I was just looking at the OPQS team and thinking, that is one solid team for a race like this. I bet they don't win it though.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 52,734 Lives Here
    Haussler.

    Now there is some unrealised potential.

    I checked yesterday and the SKY listings give "LIVE Cycling" starting at 1.30pm - when you look at the information it's only described as "LIVE Cycling Event"

    I'm assuming this is Omloop and I'm hyping myself up accordingly.

    Any weather forecasts from Our Man in Belgium?

    It'll probably be the World Track Champs :wink:
  • *hugs self with excitement*
  • Right now weather wise in Gent they're forecasting sunny spells and not very much wind coming from the south west.

  • It's Sunday, so that will be Kuurne-Brussels-Kuurne. Same as last year.
    No Het N/V. :(
    (Sporza for me :) )

    Edit: The Het is on Sky Sports 2- 11-30pm for 30 big minutes.

    Going to be a nightmare trying to watch any of that. Is Becky hopeful of defending her titles?

    How do you get Sporza in the UK by the way?
  • Yes, she is.
    You can record from the freeview channel 301, if you have a suitable hard drive.
    I get Sporza via a motorized dish and some stealth technology. :wink:

    Aside from the usual dodgy streams or if you have it as part of your cable package? You can get yourself a VPN provider which offers you multiple countries so you can change your IP address. (If you pay for it, it is an entirely legal as its a service and you're paying and the governance of the internet is still all fuzzy and the paid for ones are better quality, I pay $56 a year for mine, which is a steal as I can watch all sorts, not just cycling). Then you can watch the feed direct from the Sporza site. PM me if you want details of the service I use.

  • 13 Degrees and still in Brussels today. Not a cloud in the sky.

    That's the best I can do... :oops:

    Currently lashing it down. Windy too.

    I'll give you the early morning summary on Saturday as I'm walking 5km across Gent to view a house and then the start. It's been quite mild in Brussels all weekend though.

  • It's being shown live on cycling.tv in UK, along with Dwars Door Vlaanderen, Scheldeprijs and Eschborn Frankfurt which I don't think Eurosport are taking (KBK and Alberta are Eurosport races they also have).

    Let's hope it stays like that until the end of Classics season. We really need some proper Classics weather this year, especially at P-R.

    At last the season proper starts. Quality riders in that OPQS squad.

    Oh, I hadn't heard of that before. Might be worth the £3 a month.
