  1. Faun-Ardèche Classic & Drôme Classic 2024, February 24-25

    Two classics for the climbers and strongmen. Made one thread only since they're part of the same event and mostly the same competitors. One is for the pure climbers, other is more varied. Faun-Ardèche Classic Notable mentions: Hirschi, Skjelmose, Gall, Madous, Ayuso, Woods, Bardet, Ion...
  2. Tour of Oman - Muscat Classic 2024 , February 9-14

    This is a race of two parts. First part is the Muscat Classic, a one day race on February 9, followed by 5 stages of Tour of Oman. Startlist should be the same for both races. It's like UAE Tour, but with actual hills and mountains instead of a flat desert. Should make for a better viewing. A...
  3. Tour of Slovenia 2023, June 14 - June 18

    More hot racing this year. Last two editions were won by Pogacar. This year because of the broken wrist he will not participate. But that opens the up to some actual competition! Notable GC mentions: Ulissi, Fortunato, Mohoric, Zanna, Wellens Notable sprinters: Groenewegen, Molano, Bauhaus...
  4. La Flèche Wallonne 2023, one day classic, April 19 (men's)

    Pog is hungry for more. After winning Amstel Gold he is coming to Belgium to try to win a race that has eluded him thus far. He will face some rested competition who might fare better on the single hard climb effort, the race finishes on Mur de Huy, which is 1.3km @ 9.6%. Last year it was Teuns...
  5. Volta Ciclista a Catalunya 2023, March 20-26

    Let the hype begin! This is the race that Remco will win, after coming from Tenerife where he broke every record there is. Others will race for 2nd place or lower. It's also the race where Bernal starts his European season after beating Remco in San Juan on that one stage. Notable GC mentions...

  7. Tour of Slovenia 2021, June 9 - June 13

    More hot racing this year. Last year's edition was cancelled because of Covid situation, but this year it's back! You've seen the Giro stage through Slovenia, now multiply that by 5! There will be fans coming out of the woodwork. Tadej Pogacar is going to use this race as TDF preparation instead...
