Finally, the real racing is here, hurray!

Greipel back to back wins. Nice!

Is there any live TV coverage for these Mallorca races?

Oh come on, regardless of some of the Australian races carrying too many UCI points, the fields are a lot stronger down there than in races like this one. This is like Greipel's version of the thousand little French races where Coquard or someone smashes a sprint with no other sprinters in it.

Exactly lots of points for training races, these races should be classed as 2.2 as far as points go

a good race for Bora, Buchmann finished 6th, Herklotz 11th and Konrad 15th. Interesting, I wouldn't have put money on Buchmann being the best of them, on paper both Konrad and Herklotz should be better one day racers than him.
 
Oh Wellens and his love for crappy days to ride bikes!... I hope he's not trying to peak to soon or something like that, I would like to see him shake the Ardennes a bit more. But he's awesome anyway. And Vervaeke, I hope this is the season he really has a breaktrough after his cool 11th place in Basque Country.

Wellens two in a row - on form too early?
(or does he target different races this year - Paris Nice or whathaveyou?)

Or the field there is just pretty weak (except Movistar) this year?
I mean Lotto was 1-3-4 today...

Not riding Paris Nice this year. He's riding the Italian races (Strade is his first big goal), classics, dauphine and the Tour.
 
Tim Wellens and the Lotto-crew, whats up with them lately?! Movistar have been really bad for those races, but that doesn't take anyway away from them and especially not Wellens. Always deserves it when he wins.

Alex Aranburu with a good performance today.
