  1. And once again, with all the cards to play: 7 of their 8 riders in the final selection, the Dutch manage to lose it at the end.
  2. No use arguing with us buddy. Take your argument to DSC and CSA, they approved the risk mitigation protocols.
  3. Having had that stick up my nose 3 times already, that experience alone might now sway people that are still open to the jab to get it. I for one am stoked that events are happening again, some protocols were inevitable.
  4. Happy for Tony Martin to win in his last participation in a TTT to become World Champion. Ps. Eye catching, different bikes ridden by the three men in the picture. Usually not the case in a TTT.
  5. Will I allow a bumper sticker on my car/SUV? No. Same with my bike. If it is functional to the prevent rubbing, ask first.
  6. Two ladies fighting to beat the time from Van Dijk. Close contest this!
  7. https://www.instagram.com/stories/woutvanaert/2666752753717619219/
  8. Belgium will be explode if Wout steals this from Ganna!
  9. Split 2 has Ganna only 0.8s behind WvA, Remco 3rd. This is great!
  10. Tony Martin goes 2nd fastest at the finish. Proper final ITT from the Oom
  11. Split 1 1.WvA 2.Ganna +6.8s 3.Kung +17s Kom Wout!
  12. Wout looks focused, he is going to bring it hard, that is for sure. Ganna goes last. This is going to be phenomenal.
  13. Tadej starts. Only 5 riders left after him.
  14. As Remco crosses, he goes fastest. Beats the others by more than 40s. Bissenger 2nd Walsheid 3rd. For now. Top guns have yet to roll off the ramp.
  15. Remco goes comfortably fastest at Checkpoint 2, smashing the riders who went before him. Some big guns still need to start, but this is going to be a high benchmark once he arrives at the finish.
  16. Bissenger and Remco just rolled off the ramp. Serious contenders for the podium.
  17. Yep, my thinking too. You enter with your ID number and the system goes to the Vaccination database to check your status. If not there, "please jump through hoops 1,2,3,4..." Electronic Vaccination "Proof" is supposedly ready to go live at the end of SEPT, so allowing for teething issues, useable by end of Oct. 🤷‍♂️
  18. That is great, if we are not in a position where we are going through a peak of serious infections. ie. Overflowing hospitals and people dying in high numbers. In that case the Government might again bring in Lockdown Level 4 and take away some privileges, regardless of whether CSA had a nice plan in place to reduce the risks. But, if we have a rise in numbers that do not transfer into high hospitalizations, then I think the events will be allowed to proceed. Obviously, should also go ahead if cases hold steady. My point is just that there is still uncertainty over whether it goes ahead, because these events need Approval from authorities, which can be denied.
  19. Unfortunately for the organizers, I would stick it out to as late as feasibly possible before I commit my own cash to an entry. Anybody that tells us they have certainty over when the 4th wave is due is not to be trusted. We simply don't know. Heck, we can have a resurgence of the 3rd Wave even, nobody knows the future. We make best guesses based on what has happened in the past.
  20. I'm 35. I did an interval running session on Wednesday(no underlying illness), where I hit 193BPM. I wasn't about to fall over either. I have hit 197bpm in the past couple of years during things like 947 etc. Everyone's heart is different, just make sure you know what your "normal" is. Threshold session at 175bpm for me is comfortably hard. Whereas for someone else my age, that would be dangerous.
  21. I know your pain. Steer clear of all people... as soon as two people ride together, I try to WIN!
  22. Yeah, take it slow and steady. Buddy of mine was also told that he needs to stay in Zone 2 for at least two months after recovery from Covid. I did the same, don't want to cause damage by going too hard too soon.
