    Where does this race come on the the chipper scale?

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

    Anyone got a 'man' in the break?

    I enjoy Amstel.

    It's not as bad as Heineken but...

    I find them impossible to tell apart to be honest. Both brewed in the same main industrial Heineken brewery. They're just mainstream session lagers

    Time to the break falling steadily, now around 3'30" with 70km to go.

    But still a step up on Carling, Fosters and Carlsberg, which unfortunately are still the most common draught lagers in most parts over here :x

    Heineken has even more sh*t/more chemicals in it according to my Heineken insider. But agreed there are allebei vies.

    UK brewed lagers :( Even Amstel is worse in the UK. Too much fizz. :shock:

    Eurosport advert watch: have they televised the Tour of Croatia before? Should be quite a stunning race to watch for the scenery.

    I always assumed it was so that it was some kind of data crunching using the processing power of many remote computers (a bit like the SETI screensaver that everyone used to have in the late 90s/early 00s). I may be completely wrong.

    I have. I got horrible hayfever though. The hyacinths are out now too, very smelly they are.

    As for beer I'm looking forward to an hipster evening of artisan burgers and Paasij. :D

    Jeetje what was that car doing?! :shock:

    That was very close, if they had for a moment ignred the bike, it would have been awful. What does the law do to them? Heavy swearing broke out as I was typing, rewind time!!

    Nice footage of some riders looking like they've been to my school of climbing.

    Is this a closed course ? Oncoming car ffs. Apart from road furniture it always looks a really dangerous course this
  • hammeritehammerite Posts: 3,408
    Shame that some of these steeper climbs weren't closer to the finish.

    Tempers fraying as those worn out riders see the red mist descend as they go up a 15%.

    Looking like some lead out trains for BMC and Orica coming to the front now.

    I think it was a case of local opa forgets that he's not supposed to get in the car today and just decided to pop to the Albert Heijn.
