Pro Cycling 2021


Recommended Posts

Been watching Paris - Nice and it's amazing that last year all the talk was covid and that the teams testing positive here and there and so far nothing even mentioned and it happening like races did in 2019.  ie nothing to see here.

Anyway Roglic is slaying them.

Strade Bianche was great on the weekend. Van der Poel published his power file and some good analysis on YouTube Eg Laterne Rouge channel

Such a great race with a cracking final group. MvDP is just so good to watch.

Dude, where's the spoiler alert??

FFS, what's the point of paying for GCN+ if you're going to spoil for me ?? 🤣

Ive watched it now, so all good

And the first stage of Tirreno-Adriatico (not going to name the winner though in case others habit seen it yet)

As an aside, GCN+ is easily the best $30 I have ever spent

Huge thanks to however recommended it!

Crazy night in both races.

 

a 50km solo break away to win because he was cold? 
 

and then a crash so bad he basically rode to the end naked.

So crazy. I am cold, I must go harder :D Gutted for the naked man. I hope being robbed at the last post doesn't become a theme like falling off his bike has been for Richie Porte.

Two crashes apparently, still haven't seem any footage though

Class act Roglic though. First thing he did after crossing the line was to find and congratulate Schachmann

Yep. All class. No 3 paragraphs of excuses like female triathletes.

How cooked was MVdP.

No celebration at the end, then basically falls off his bike once he gets to his support crew. Then looks like he is at the North Pole with the flu in his interview :D

Respect

Crashes twice. Loses the tour.  Rides on the front of a pack for 20km solo. Dislocated shoulder. And congratulates the guy who honestly got lucky to win. 
 

this guy is a legend.

Not sure how they’ll stop wout.

He is amazing. But I guess if he wants to move to GC he is going to need to trade off that raw power he has with weight. I was impressed with how he rode in the mountains though. Not many in front of him, just Pog! out climbed beranal et al. So impressive.

I'm looking forward to the Tour! Go Roglic. 

Interesting JV let McNaulty go. I think to Roglic Pog is the only other racer our there, everything else is just noise - he will slay the rest on the final mountain :D

So anyone staying up for tonight? I think it's worth it, should be over just after 1am. 

Despite everyone scratching their heads as to why Jumbo Visma let McNaulty go, I think Roglic has them where he wants them. He can attack late and put 25s into Naulty and that won't leave enough road for Pog to take the 24s over roglic he needs. But will Pog attack his own team mate? 

Good times
