The Tour of Rwanda is - or was until this edition - a 2.2 race which, if I understand correctly, doesn't count as a pro race.

my bad, forgot it doesn't become a 2.1 until next year.

Gage Hecht won stage 1 of Colorado Classic. Taking every jersey along the way.
Travis McCabe managed to somehow think that he'd won, despite Hecht being right in front of the bunch.

My goodness, you couldn't look more like an American highschooler if you tried. Amazing effort tho.

Somebody make a Colorado thread please!

There is some great racing at the US stage races. That ride by Hecht was sensational. He’s the U23 American TT champ, right?

Finally, Nicolas Edet takes his first pro victory in the Tour du Limousin after the parked moto semi-scandal in the Tour de l'Ain.

There was a late crash that took out Ackermann, unfortunately. Viviani however was superior, he'll be winning a stage or 3 in La Vuelta.

Plus it clached with the BBT, the tour de l'avenir, the artic race and the tour of hongrie :rolleyes: Which are all more exciting than a sprintfest.

Degenkolb was almost taken down by Ackermann, had to unclip and regain his position near the front and still managed to finish 4th.

In Denmark Eurosport would much rather show some stupid football match...

So... what's the name of that little French race that starts tomorrow?
"Tour du Poitou Charentes, Charente, Charente Maritime, deux sévres, Vienne" or "Tour Poitou-Charentes en Nouvelle-Aquitaine"? For everyone involved I kinda hope it's the second…

4 flat stages in Tour Poitou-Charentes and Demare is the only real sprinter participating???

His competition consists of the likes of Thomas Boudat, Julien Simon, Brenton Jones, Matteo Malucelli and Marco Benfatto... (and to be fair, also Matteo Moschetti, who placed 2nd in the first stage so best of the rest).

Third win in a row for Démare.

Pictures of his victories are rather depressing, he’s far ahead of the competition.

Demare is straight demolishing the not so good competition.
