Primož Roglič and Radoslav Rogina vs. the CCC boys?

Romandie

http://www.tourderomandie.ch/fr/33-parcours

With an actually interesting stage in the Jura after quite a while no less.

Although the stage to Porrentruy could have been better.

Watch out for Petite Forclaz on stage 5 as well. Almost 10% average. And of course Champex. The toughest finish in about a decade.

And a good field

Guillaume Martin (CC Etupes, France) just won LBL U23, ahead of Silvio Herklotz (Team Stölting, Germany) and Tao Geoghegan Hart (Axeon Cycling Team, United Kingdom).

He was trainee at FDJ in 2014, and he likes Nietzsche. :D

Lol, in Romandie La Vue-des-Alpes is surely a cat.1, giving it cat.2 might make some underestimate it.

It is a very strong startlist, but with some strange typos and nation errors in it. Maxime Bouet's name has been Russified to Maxim, a few other errors such as "Bakelats" permeate, and most awesomely, Nathan Haas has become Nathan Haaas. Rory Sutherland has become American, Simon Gerrans Danish, André Cardoso is now Canadian, and Kevin de Weert has moved north. At least Zoidl becoming Australian is at least a slightly understandable error!

You're right - there will be hour long highlights around 18:00,19:00 on the day on RaiSport2
:(
I guess the Rai just don't have the money to do live and are saving what they have for il Giro.

In LBL U23, the lead group of 7 ignored the red lighs and boom at a railway crossing, and one of them ended up winning.

Movistar and Lampre withdraw because of injuries from classic races. Shame.

It's not a superb line up but It's first edition (there was before, but different organization). It's great promotion for Croatia. TV coverage (Eurosport). Stages are very well planed and if the whether is nice you will enjoy this race. Coast, national parks, old towns..beautiful scenery..amazing..and of course The Ucka climb. Fun fact: Michael Rasmussen in 2001 came first on the top of Ucka (name of the race was Jadranska Magistrala).

Croatia is becoming great preseason training place for many teams. Vladimir Miholjevic (ex Liquigas, Acqua & Sapone rider) is the main man of this event.

Since ToC is live on Eurosport, how about making a separate race thread. The race will like get a little better exposure here and who knows maybe the thread will get some traction.

I can't say that you are wrong, but in another forum, my question about that group was answered thus: "there was an article about it in Het Nieuwsblad today. That group of riders was 6 or 7 minutes behind the leaders, therefore there was no immediate reaction from the race jury, as they [the jury] were with the first group (otherwise they would have been taken out of the race immediately). In the future someone from the jury will wait there until every rider has passed." So that report would imply that they were eventually removed, from the results if not the course. Ignore me:this was about U23 RvV, I didn't avert to LBL in your text.

It's what I read on the sporza website - I haven't seen another source for this though.

They were 7 minutes down at the one in the RVV U23. So the U23s seem to be doing it more than the Elites.
