  1. Cancellara was pushed hard last year and will be again. But when it comes down to it I just can’t see anyone living with him last time up the Paterberg. If a select group gets away at around 60km then Fab could be marked out of it – Thomas is my man for t… »

The Kemmelberg is a brute. In my opinion, its the hardest of the cobbled climbs in the Spring Classics; it has a high speed tarmac approach that saps the guns of their snap. The transition from tarmac to cobbles is awful, the stones are very badly laid throughout and if you don’t hit it just right, you’ll come to a standstill. The cobbl...

  1. Over-indexing on sprinters this time. But Canch must be fuming after being caught behind a crash at E3H and then forced to do the chasing, so as they came together on Oude Kwaremont he had burned too many matches to follow Thomas’ acceleration. G was supe… »

Het Volk (it will always be Het Volk to me) and now the Strade Bianche may well mark the sentimental beginning to the season, but those are specialized, pre-season races that appeal mostly to riders who are preparing for bigger objectives later in the year, such as the Cobbled or Ardennes Classics. Same goes for Tirreno Adriatico and Paris-Nice; t...

Imagine a world without the little things we take for granted; a house without a roof, a pub with no beer, a Keepers Tour without any clothes. The last one is a reality for me at the moment, five days in and still no trace of where the hell between Wellington and Paris my bag (filled with V-Kit, shoes, helmet, everything) is. The other thing that h...

@sgraha's posts:

  1. I suspect it will finish with a select group, so Sagan has the edge. If Cav makes it to the finish in the front he wins. Will be interesting to see if Moser gets away again to crank up the pressure on the others; would also love to see Faboo blow the race… »

Until the 70′s it was common to race on gravel roads, but the Paving of the Planet has led to nearly every road being graced by smooth, black tarmac. As is the case with most things, once we are shown the easy path, it is difficult to return to more arduous ways. So it is with gravel roads; we take measures to avoid unpaved roads and in doi...
