Valverde getting another free ride to Ans and y'all wonder why I lost respect for the Ardennes peloton.
I always thought it was partly to do with politics, you being flandrian and all.
 
I have never seen a national championships' jersey be represented as poorly as the British has been by Cummings the last year.

I think his presence on the team is absolutely inexclicable in a race such as this.

How he never does anything but sit at the absolute last position in the bunch, living off his spring two years ago is disgraceful.

Can't wait for Dan Martin to get dropped on la redoute
? What's is wrong with Martin, in your opinion?
I don't dislike Martin but four days ago he got dropped on the penultimate ascent of the Mur. He just doesn't have the shape to win here right now but still UAE rides like they have the fahorite in their team again
Martin had just chased for a couple of km to get back after being stuck in a fall, so he had an excuse

Yeah, Cummings is just... ugh, horrible teamplayer.

The terrain between the Ferme Libert and the bottom of La Redoute is the big problem of this race.
As I said, its simply too easy of a course and with the horrible finish in Ans, its not really rocketscience to see why this race is so conservatively ridden. Even after La Redoute until Faucons sucks, this course just need to be a lot better thought out and make the difficulties come in quick succession if you want to see good racing in this race apart from the the last 15 km.

Matthews to win this.

Ala and Bala are dumb enough to wait for the final. They will regret it when their teams have towed Gerro 2.0 to the line.
The amount of sheer dumb luck in coincidental circumstances that allowed Gerrans to win will never happen again, much less this soon. If Matthews wins he might actually deserve it.

Until they'll keep Ans and Saint-Nicholas in the final it'll always be so boring, make the finish easier and make the central part harder
Saint Nicholas is a problem as well

Lets see how the race will look when it heads back to Liege - hopefully it will be rejuvenated like Amstel which suddenly has become one of the best races of the season.

Did Matthews sleep with your girlfriend or something? Your hate for him is excessive
It's justified. NEVER FORGET: https://www.ridemedia.com.au/interviews/michael-matthews-the-amstel-gold-race/
Yeah, that interview was incredibly stupid, but constantly comparing Matthews with Gerrans is just unfair
