Sucks that AGR is the same time. Will find some highlights later though.

Looks like quite a crash there, half the péloton stopped in the middle of a dirt path.

Not as bad as Fabricio Ferrari's faceplant in Castilla y León earlier, but still.

Yeah.
Somebody's garden, then through a farmyard!
Some of these tracks make P-R look neat and tidy.

Wow! That race looks like fun! Of course I didn't have to actually ride it, doesn't look that fun to ride (especially not with the rain!)
Too bad I didn't get to see it...

Default Tro Bro Leon...better than Amstel!

Did anyone else catch the Tro Bro today? Solid racing...not negative...wide open. Amstel...not to take anything away from Gilbert, but that race was like watching paint dry until the very end.

I've said it before and I'll say it again, Div2 racing is more often than not, better racing in terms of viewing than the big stuff.

Hats off to Routley and that dirty sanchez Bruno.
