Sorry, not a KLAXON post. Just wondering what sort of wind speed is required for them.

    Assuming ideal orientation?

    Have some vague recollections that Jose de Cauwer has said something like 15kph.

    That little?

    Might be worth watching Samyn today then. Pretty much ideal direction for a large part of the outward route.

    Also highly dependent on speed of the racing at that moment etc....

    You also need the change in direction. If you're riding all day with a cross-tailwind chances are no-one will force a split.

    According to Oliver Naesen:

    25-30kph in the Tour
    20kph in Belgium
    15kph in Qatar
