Okay, Machado... that was new! I'm no expert, but I think it's a good idea to make sure the shoe is tight enough that it doesn't fall off when you crash. Otoh hand; keeps you from potentially breaking your ankle...

Just realized that the sound comes from people posting comments on the page; I have now turned it off. So, no, I don't have any commentary.

Might have missed an earlier attack by a Dimension Data rider, but the UAE rider was - according to commentators - Conti.

Meintjens was indeed confirmed earlier, that was before the Conti attack.

This climb is just not steep enough though.

Easy Kwiato.

Why no gap between Kwiato and the rest. Clearly should be at least 2 sec.

Kwito just too good. Lovely rider. Rosón with a great showing!

Already looking forward to Strade Bianche. Kwito favourite, but GVA also in monster shape to start the season!

Of course, also says something about his form. Definitely ready for the Omloop.

Going out on a limb and predict a Top 10 maybe even Top 5 for Kämna.
