edited April 2019 in Pro race
The best fortnight's racing is already underway, with a pretty anonymous break up the road in E3:
Jaime Castrillo, Marc Hirschi, Thomas Sprengers, Aksel Nommela, Ludwig De Winter, Mihkel Raim & Stijn Steels.

Today's mini Flanders course:

Sporza's live coverage starts in 15 minutes or so, or just as soon as those hellingen appear.
Eurosport will go live for what will either be the grand finale, or dying embers of a battle already fought, at 3pm.
Don't ask me why............

I'll try and update if anything major occurs before said time.

    CyclingEntertainment.stream is also down today :(.

    Here is the working Tiz stream. It's about 2 minutes behind the actual race, but beggars can't be etc.

    Vanmarcke in a ditch and out of the race.

    Tiz usually get their commentary from Eurosport, so 3pm I'm afraid.

    A lot of sparring going on, mostly between team's number two riders.

    ok i have just paid for a VPN myself. Am up and running on Sporza.

    Panic over. WIll worry about what pay plan to do later.

    Peloton taking breathe. Think Wout spent a lot of energy around 70km to go.

    Next up, is the trio, Kapel, Pater, Oude Kwaremont.
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 19,217
    Jungels shedding the breakaway deadwood.
    Politt and Sutterlin: 2 big engines up front with him now.
    The peloton being KBK'd again now a distinct possibility.

    Who's the Swiss who's survived with Jungels?
  • blazing_saddlesblazing_saddles Posts: 19,217
    Fabian Jungels. Ridiculously strong.

    20 YO Marc Hirschi who had been in the BOTD. Impressive, but blown away by the mighty Bob, now.

    Just so difficult to get organised with Stybar and they know they need to chase hard soon, so they'll give up sooner.
  • gweedsgweeds Posts: 2,400
    Boom. Haven’t seen that for a while.
    Napoleon, don't be jealous that I've been chatting online with babes all day. Besides, we both know that I'm training to be a cage fighter.
  • rick_chaseyrick_chasey Posts: 60,987 Lives Here
    Langeveld's not taking turns either.
  • ProssPross Posts: 31,592
    Sagan blew up big time on the final climb as GVA put in a huge dig to pull 10 seconds out of Jungels lead.
  • shirley_bassoshirley_basso Posts: 5,264
    Second group looking organised but it's a huge ask to outfox DQS
