One final double-header and the season is over for another year...

Il Lombardia (Saturday)

The race of the falling leaves this year runs from Como to Bergamo, taking on 7 classified climbs over 238km. The final climb tops out with just over 3km to the finish with a fast and twisty approach to the line.
Startlist via PCS.

Paris-Tours (Sunday)

A much flatter affair, but with a sting in the tail.
Starting in Chartres, the first 145km contain 3 rubbish zones and a lunch stop.
But the final 70km run towards the finish in Tours contains 8 côtes and 10 secteurs de pavé before a flat run in of ~10km.
Startlist via PCS.

Picks by 12:00 BST on the respective days.
Thanks all for playing along this year. And it will be February again before we know it.
