I'm trying to convince my club in London to take a trip to Romania to do the Paltinis climb! This will probably help convince them, thanks. Any CN users coming to watch the race?

Lol, two time trials and two mountain top finishes in four days!

By the way, check the prologue route, 20 90° corners in 2 kilometers!

I love this race

McLovin,you forgot to add the most important thing :

...............



....he will be here...

also the strongest domestique since landis and hincapie combined(for anyone who saw tour of turkey this year) will be here....the mighty Serhiy "i lead the peloton for 150 km every single stage" Grechyn.


and it looks like discovery channel's lost son,bileka will be here too.konya will murder the race i feel.metlushenko is also strong as a rock...it's like the us postal of the balkans this team.only stronger

bart wellens also in the startlist...cool

i gotta get my degree so no live action for me...maybe we'll get a live broadcast although i still doubt it,it will be a first so probably also terrible like in colombia.

Is that Transagarasan road stage the same mountain road as they showed in Top Gear a few years ago? That is seriously awesome scenery and they should do it downhill, too.
