The World's in Qatar was the most boring race in recent years.
Most boring WC race o most boring race in general?The World's in Qatar was the most boring race in recent years.
Copenhagen was the most boring, along with Zolder - even with the last lap crash and the Zabel/McEwen melee in the sprint.The World's in Qatar was the most boring race in recent years.
Preach, brotha!Copenhagen was the most boring, along with Zolder - even with the last lap crash and the Zabel/McEwen melee in the sprint.
I do like the worlds. But not a flat one.sounds like nobody likes the Worlds anyway
In Europe, the people who have been under lockdown are being released.I have lost track. Where are pro riders restricted at the moment?
England as much exercise as you want from tomorrow (Wednesday) - with 1 non-household person - carry on social distancing .I have lost track. Where are pro riders restricted at the moment?
(The situation in GB I don't understand at all, with this "you can ride once a day for a limited time". Obviously it made Thomas flee to Monaco? Or is it different in Wales?)
So they have changed some of the dates of one-day WT races that are in the UCI calendar? Now are France, Belgium, Spain, Netherlands and others going to submit their revised schedules, after which UCI will switch theirs again? I don’t get it.The Italian Federation just proposed a new Italian calendar to the UCI:
1 agosto Strade Bianche
5 agosto Milano-Torino
8 agosto Il Lombardia
18 agosto Giro dell'Emilia
20 agosto Gran Piemonte
22 agosto Milano-Sanremo
28 agosto Trofeo Matteotti
29 agosto Memorial Marco Pantani
31 agosto-4 settembre Settimana Internazionale Coppi e Bartali
5 settembre G.P. Industria & Artigianato Larcianese
7-14 settembre Tirreno-Adriatico
16 settembre Giro della Toscana - Memorial Alfredo Martini
17 settembre Coppa Sabatini - Gran Premio città di Peccioli
20 settembre Giro dell'Appennino
22 settembre Regione Lombardia
3-25 ottobre Giro d'Italia
31 ottobre-1 novembre Campionati Italiani
I really like the block of one day races right at the start, if the WC stays on the same date it's a great option to prepare for it and those who won't ride the Tour could do a ton of racing in Italy right before it.
Yes, they'd be a nice block of one day races in Italy before the Tour and with MSR being one week before the Tour and really close to Nice I could see a lot of guys racing in Italy before the Tour, with the shortened Dauphine it could even be an interesting option for the gc riders, mainly the portion between SB and Emilia.The changes aren't that big, are they? It's just Lombardia taking the place of MSR on August 5, and then MSR moving down to August 22.
source??2nd wave is starting in south korea
motorhomes instead of hotels for the Giro
maybe they are not too confident about the Giro to happen at all? Personally I'd think trying to get as much stuff as possible done in the Summer is the better approach, at least - if there's a 2nd wave, it's most likely to come in fall.On one hand I am not a big fan of having the Autumn Italian classics in august but on the other hand, in the current context, it makes sense to have the main Italian classics all taking place in the same month because they could bring bigger names that are preparing for the Tour which would somehow compensate having the Giro in October.
