Dutch province of Utrecht backs up the bid for the Vuelta start of 2020.

Big chance it happens

Start would be Utrecht TTT
Stage 2 would be Den Bosch - Utrecht
Stage 3 would be Breda - Breda

Boring as hell all the way.

The sacrifices necessary have become so extreme that that's now becoming frequent

Moser, Flakemore, Costa, etc

I bought a used fancy lug Hetchins track frame from Monty in April or May of 1972.
He made an absolutely huge contribution to cycle racing for more than sixty years.
