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.

not that much wind in those areas. But yeah, road furniture crashes are almost certain.

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

Moser, Flakemore, Costa, etc

Whatever he decides, I hope he's happy

Martin Toft Madsen will try to beat Wiggins Hourrecord later today in Mexico. Apparantly he is confident on beating the record. Sounds a bit optimistic but he has prepared well and I would expect him to do very well and likely pass 53 km

There can be a women's version of Clasica San Sebastian next year. If there is, I hope they do the final 50 km of the old route with Jaizkibel-Arkale and then going to san Sebastian. Or even better put Erlaitz before Jaizkibel.

Also there are some rumours that Crostis may feature in Giro Rosa 2019, please make it happen! Crostis-Zonc would be awesome.

I think it's the sign of a clean rider and a real sportsman to be attracted to the bigger challenge over the ultimate result. Good luck with the Giro/Tour double, Chris Froome. -Phil Gaimon

Well, he did 53.360km, which is the second highest distance after Wiggins (under the new rules). Still a km down on Sir Bradley though.

UEC wants a ECRR between 150km and 180km next year. The ITT will be around 20km to 30km. Each category will be riding the same distance.

According to Sporza.
