“New York has the haircuts, London has the trousers, but Belfast has the reason!
Must be trying to make up for the lack of commentators or to try and drown out the hammering rain.
Motorbike crash last week.
This season is definitely cursed.
Looks to be now... 2 min+ gaps over 2.5km!
But - actual racing. With added water.
Quite enjoyed seeing some cycling again though - I know that faintly farcical short prologues are kind of my thing, but even in that context it was nice to just watch some cycling going on. What really made me feel good was seeing a few of the guys on the ramp looking at the camera and then making a gesture towards the sky as if to say "what the hell are any of us doing here?" - that kind of felt like the essential spirit of cycling and the connection between riders and fans was still there.
It's a lovely morning in rural Romania.
Great to see a peloton again.
Also helmet numbers like a crit is funny
Gaviria won stage 2 in Burgos after Grosschartner won the first stage and leads overall. Mark Cavendish didn't place in the state 2 sprint. Does anyone know if he's even trying to sprint yet?
One of two big finishes today, where the climbers come out to play.
Everybody else all over the place. There about a dozen pieces as the wind blows....
Ineos very poor in the end.
This is their Giro squad though. That's two months away, and a backloaded route too.
He's been fourth and first in the Giro, beaten by two GT winners in the first, and beat three previous GT winners in the second. I don't see how anyone can doubt his talent and he clearly has a winner's mentality.
Your words. He came 1st in a more than half decent field - stop digging
I feel like the new generation know how to train so much better than previous.
None of this racing into shape malarkey anymore.
