    We're ***SPOILERED*** for choice.

    This one has a climb profile, the other some live stream, but neither has any cheese, beer, horses or tractors yet.

    Who will win this battle of the spoilers?

    I never realised it was still slightly uphill after the top of the Cauberg.
    Always thought it was my legs still suffering from the climb as I rode the flat road after. :roll:

    Just think it was the "Mad Cow Epidemic" that made the review to change the course from crossing the Belgian Border to finish back in Maastricht.
    Remember the liquid troughs of disinfectant to drive through. :roll:

    130km covered so far and the front group of 6 riders has 6'30" on the peloton. Coverage just about to start on Eurosport in the UK?

    (Shame this clashes with Tro-Bro Léon today)

    Anyone but Valverde or that non-waving GVA.

    No picks for Dan Martin?

    Suprised at that.

    Fu at the table, should clear up from here for the win. Done in 3 mins.

    God damn snooker. It's not even a sport.

    Great crowds on the Cauberg as the leading group returns with around 90km to go.

    It's sponsored by a truly terrible beer if that means anything.

    Anyone got a 'man' in the break?

    No tA Doctor has @vanSnail :D

    Any mention of the dreaded "traffic furniture" yet?

    Is this Dan Lloyd with Kirby? Quite like his comments and insights.

    Seems the same defensive yawnfest as Vlaanderen and to some degree Roubaix. Let's hope that with the main favourites actually riding here, the outsiders start attacking a bit earlier. No point waiting until the Cauberg if you're not Gilbert, Kwiatkoski, Valverde, etc. Gulpenerberg-Kruisberg-Eyserbosweg trio at 50 km to go is where it should start (hopefully)
  • RonBRonB Posts: 3,984
    Westra's leg looks a right mess. Hopefully a few stitches will sort it out. I'll spare you the pic :shock:
