Original proposals were pure fantasyland stuff like 2000m high hollow building with skiing slopes and the entire shebang.Menigeen noemde het plan voor een fietsberg bij Zoetermeer luchtfietserij, maar de Fietsklim is wel degelijk technisch en financieel haalbaar zeggen de bedenkers. Het plan is nu om een 70 meter hoge houten constructie los naast SnowWorld bouwen.www.ad.nl
Small step for a man, giant step for society. If this succeeds, you can set your clock to it that the likes of Thijs Zonneveld and other inbreds will jump out of the woodworks to demand more. Die berg komt er.Original proposals were pure fantasyland stuff like 2000m high hollow building with skiing slopes and the entire shebang.
70m isn't much more than the 'let's cover this trash heap and put a single lane road on it' stuff we already have with the VAM berg.
Just construct a nice road over the top of Mount Scenery, and suddenly you have the ingredients for a proper national championships fit for climbers.
Dig a hole, and put the dirt you dug up next to the hole. Now you can start at the bottom of the hole and climb all the way up to the top of the pile you dug up.why don't the dutch just build a big hole and have a road going down it like a whirlpool? Just seems easier

They also have that Heineken butter knife thing to chop off beer bubbles.. Can't be trusted.. mixing pot with tobacco? The Dutch are suspiciousIt's a well-known fact that the Dutch are weird.
He didn't ride over the cobbles, he rode between them. Later they would rearrange the cobbles so that this was no longer possible.I didn't know where to post this without starting a new thread, which didn't seem proper, except here. In this CN article you will find the distances and winning average speeds of all the Paris-Roubaix races from 2018 back to the editio princeps in 1896. https://www.cyclingnews.com/races/paris-roubaix-2023/race-history/
I was quite struck, to say the least, with this ride in 1900, presumably on a fixed-gear bike that weighed 15 kg or so, with no technical support for flats/mechanicals and, even if the pave were not yet introduced, on unpaved roads throughout nonetheless (or so I would imagine): Emile Bouhours (Fra) 268 km (37.352 km/h).
We are for all intents and purposes in the Stone Age of cycling, yet compare Bouhour's time with these slower ones: 1973 Eddy Merckx (Bel) 272 km (36.370 km/h); 1978 Francesco Moser (Ita) 263 km (36.494; km/h); or early EPO era 1994 Andreï Tchmil (Mda) 270 km (36.160 km/h). Even though a bit faster, we're still talking about 2001 compared to 1900: 2001 Servais Knaven (Ned) 254.5 km (39.19km/h).
Considering the differences in machines, road surfaces, team organization and support, or such other factors as weather conditions and wind direction/speeds (which I frankly don't know) over comparable distances; it's absolutely incredible that in 1900 Bouhours could put up a time faster than Tchmil in 1994. Back in those days, moreover, I imagine he would also have been out in front solo or with very little company for at least 150 km.
He must of been really freekin strong is all I have to say.
We'll, officially at least, he rode the whole distance and again there were no asphalted roads, so even if he could have ridden between the cobbles, the general conditions must have been extremely arduous, And these true pioneers of the sport rode on machines like this and in such aero positions, handlebar baffi with it!He didn't ride over the cobbles, he rode between them. Later they would rearrange the cobbles so that this was no longer possible.
Or possibly in 1900 they used GPS technology that is still being used in the Giro to this day.
But seriously, i'm going with inaccurate time/distance measurements. Or the guy took a train somewhere.
So the St. Johann/Apendorf stage is probably the classic one over the Großglockner.There are some cautiously optimistic words in media that the "Tour of Austria" (under this new name instead of Österreichrundfahrt) will really take place this July. The Austrian continental teams have joint forces to get it organized again after all the chaos of the past years.
It's not (or even far from?) fully financed yet, as far as I understood, but I guess it's the last chance. The designated route looks like this:
• E1: Vorarlberg (Dornbirn – Dornbirn)
• E2: Tirol (St. Anton – Innsbruck)
• E3: Osttirol – Salzburg (Sillian – St. Johann/Alpendorf)
• E4: Salzburg – Oberösterreich (St. Johann/Alpendorf – Steyr)
• E5: Niederösterreich (Ybbs an der Donau – Sonntagberg)
Until 2027, they want to extend the race to nine stages to visit all nine states of Austria.
the so called "stage concept" mentions "shorter stages", "finishing circuits" and "well known routes, including passages of Bundesligarennen and Radmarathons". So maybe that gives an indication?Curious to see what they do with St. Anton - Innsbruck, since it's rather short and you can put multiple shorter climbs in it, one could even go over the Kühtai Sattel or even better, Silzer Sattel + Kühtai before a short hill near Innsbruck.
the "Bobbahnsprint" in Igls already exists as an annual race. It looks less spectacular than it soundsI take it that is a bobsleigh track? Downhill ITT with steeply banked sides and sharp turns: I think I am more scared at the prospect than excited.
