(A small) but cracking start to the season with a lovely route this year

Used to be hard to find info on this sort of race - but now it's all pdf routes and route flyovers

    Kristoff racing it this year due to the Qatar cancellation.
  • La Méditerranéenne cancelled now, too.
    So, no follow up stage race after Etoile.

    Lack of Police available. Back next year apparently.

    I was thinking exactly this. Hopefully we are both wrong.
    It's a little like wrestling a gorilla. You don't quit when you're tired. You quit when the gorilla is tired.
  • Round 1 goes to Demarre from Kristoff.

    My man who isn't in my squad Denz was in a four man break and although this is only the first stage of a 2.1 French cup in the first week of February he's already taken the mountain and youth jersey and looks good at 4th GC - thats almost the season sown up :D
  • Stage 2

    Kristoff from Demare :) (with Barbier in between)
