African Continental Championships: The men ITT has been won by Debesay, the women ITT has been won by Debesay. Does anyone know if they are related? That would be pretty cool!

Eritrea doesn't have family names, but rather has a patronymic naming convention. So Debesay is (presumably) the personal name of their father. They might both be from Asmara, but Asmara is the capital and largest city of Eritrea, so both of them having a father with the same name and being born in Asmara doesn't really make for a high chance of both of them being related.

That race in Turkey is a freaking mess, no words. Wilson Peña was the sole leader and was about to pass the only climb (1st cat) of the day for the KOM points and possible stage victory, but punctured 1k from the top. He had to wait so long for a new wheel that by the time he got it, he was the last man in the race, in front of the broom-wagon and couldn't even make the finish.

I didn't know he was leading the race. In that case, I have to wonder, where was his team car?
I don't think it's fair to judge the race based on 1 incident.

I thought 'neo-pro' referred to a rider's first pro contract, as opposed to their first year as a pro, and since a neo-pro contract must always be at least two years.

For the UCI it does.

I'm with you, for me a neo-pro is someone in his first pro (WT or PC level) year. For the UCI, it's someone within his first pro contract (which normally is two years).
