Silence-Lotto will have 19 riders riding on Sunday. If they don't win, I say get on your bike and ride as fast as possible away from the DS.
Hagen is definitly hot favourite to win both titles,but i will keep an eye on Stian Remme too, for the road race,he looked good in that Ringerike GP this year.craig1985 said:I'm going for EBH to retain his Norwegian national TT crown and to win the road race as well. Is Thor riding? I know he has bigger fish to fry in July then to worry about his national champs. Take your pick out of the Schleks and Kim Kirchen for the Luxembourg RR and TT title and I think we throw in one of the young Kazahks of Astana to make a name for himself and go after the RR and TT (I'm going for Maxim Iglinsky in the RR). Tomas Vaitkas should retain his Lithuanian RR (or is for Jamaica?) title.
It is in the hilliest region of Holland, but they chose to avoid the hills and go into the city...laurentiu46 said:My mistake.
Anyway,this does not seem the hilliest region in Holland,and having a look at the profile,it could come down to a reduced sprint.
It will be difficult for Gesink to win,so my pick is Karsten Kroon.
Well, MTBers are generally very good at time trials. The main benefit the road TTers have is better aerodynamic technique and are more familiar with TT bikes but at a purely physicaly level it's never a surprise when a MTBer does well in time trials.lostintime said:Weather you follow womens cycling or not . . . you gotta love granny Jeannie Longo winning yet again in the TT.
And what of the French men TT, beaten by a mountain biker
Maybe Hinault should suit up too . . . he's probably seething that the men can't beat a mountain biker.
I think the pros get an invitation from their fed.lostintime said:Mountain bikers certainly are every bit as fit as road riders, but it's gotta hurt the ego to have someone show up at your race and beat you that's not even a road ricer or even trains in the TT.
Can anyone show up for these Nat'l champs or what?
They say it's the flattest in several years.Belokki said:Whats the profile of the Norvegian Road ChP course? Is it hilly or flat?
Than Thor if he participates, if not... EBH might have good chancesingsve said:
