Tro Bro Leon 2012 - 206.4km (April 15)

09 Apr 2012 17:46

Okay I already started a thread 'bout this great race last year but I love it and wish you could favour that one to Amstel next Sunday. For it's again streamed live (3.00pm CET): http://video-direct.france3.fr/player.php?id=1349

I don't need to type a long intro, I'll just refer to my earlier thread:

http://forum.cyclingnews.com/showthread.php?t=13103&highlight=Leon

The pic for the ribin list and the map profile are the 2012 one (I did not replace it, they did).

I'll just add, this quintessential picture (thanks to L'arriviste):cool::

Apparently, Chainel's racing Amstel this year.

So I'll root for the only crossers remaining: Arnold Jeannesson and Nicolas Bazin. ;)

Love this race: really unique.

Just to say live coverage time in OP is incorrect. From 16-15CET.

http://video-direct.france3.fr/player.php?id=1349

Which is good, since it's 16-15 to 17-45 slot means most of the coverage will now not clash with the AGR.
Folks should watch this one, as it's a real novelty.

It's just another 1.1 race, these are rarely stickied.

The weather is dry, this morning I was talking to one of my sisters who lives near there, she says it's been dry and quite warm (20°C) for the last 3 days.

I also see from this webcam pix very near the race course that it's sunny

My tip, Alexandre Blain ftw. He rode well last year and in good form with a decent win in the UK over similar terrain a fortnight ago. Well deputised by Ian Bibby and a certain JTL :D

Blain's form is so excellent he abandoned today's Tour du Finistère. :rolleyes:

So, you haven't heard of preparation races? Finistere is far more of a grimpeurs race with climbs up to 250m than TBL which has a much flatter parcours. Let's see how he goes tomorrow shall we?

Would be nice if this was on a different day to Amstel Gold Race, but this race will probably take precedence for me tomorrow.
Ladagnous should be in with a shout after his good Roubaix, shouldn't he?

I think Boucher could go well here, he was present in all the breaks in the Classics.
I'd agree with you but then we'd both be wrong

The Grand Boucle wasn't just Europe's for the taking.

Looks like that forces you to download and install software to be able to watch it.

This one should work, but it's georestricted (don't know if it's Europe or France only)
