Edit: post claimed Contador announced he was doing Flanders.

Turns out its the day of the innocent saints - the new borns killed by Herod looking for the Nazarene, and the Spanish of course commemorate this believed massacre of thousands of innocent babies by pulling pranks on eachother.

In hindsight i got off likely. Had they said the Spanish footbal team doping programme went public or something i would have come off a lot worse.

Can't interpret it otherwise than to honor the race's centenary.

Wasn't he going to do Oman? Maybe in preparation for Flanders. Good to see him branching out if this is true, although I think he would find more success in the Ardennes.

Joint, along Henao and JTL I guess. One feeling best on a day gets the lead. Also he'll do Tour in support of Froome. And his big goal of Worlds - Lombardia at the end of the season.

Anyway this thread is about rider schedules and race parcors. Maybe Boonen hasnt appeared because everyone knows what his schedule will be

San Luis - cos all the real sprinters are in TDU.
Qatar
Cobbled races
Paris Nice
MSR
Cobbled races
RVV
PR
Long rest
Post pictures on twitter which some kid called Joris always retweets and replies to
Long rest
Ride some crap autumn races in norhtern europe which end in a sprint but which no good sprinters have bothered with.
Rest
Select himself for the worlds ttt knowing that with Martin Velits Chav he doesnt have to do anything to call himself a world champion
Long rest.


Nice variation from the previous 10 years
It's funny cause it's true. Boonen used to care about Paris-Tours until a few years ago but this is the current Boonen in a nutshell.
