Still nice races to win but I think it’s more that the novelty has worn off and an element of ‘familiarity breeds contempt’ means that now all the riders and teams are very well attuned to the parcours the racing has become a lot more controlled and formulaic.I used to think of these as tough races and a nice addition to someone's palmeres, but they seem somehow less now? Is it the courses that have changed or the riders (or just me )? Would still love to go watch them someday, since they are at least on the same continent I am.
