My last classics season where I'm restricted to stream coverage. Moving to Ghent on the 26th of April 2017. You know 2018 is gonna be a mad party.

You need to go watch some of the track 6 day racing when you are there.  I streamed the Ghent 6 day last Sunday with Wiggo and Cav who won the event on the very last race.  The track racing was crazy on such a small track and the crowd atmosphere was awesome... was a cross between an octoberfest and track race, with loud music, beer flowing, sold out crowd singing, lights, music and intense racing!!... even the commentators were getting into the spirit ... am sure they were enjoying the beer whilst commentating!!

In a recent interview, Sagz will be prioritising Paris-Roubaix

 

A bit of a lottery, just like MSR

 

Let's see....

Ja a tough one to win hey.. a lot needs to go right on the day.. at least Fabulous won't be falling down in front of him next year[emoji102]

 

Damn I still think those two would've closed the gap had Cancellara not fallen..they were working so well together.

Oh definitely. The 6 days of Ghent will be a must. 5000 cycling mad fans packed into that arena is going to be unreal. Expect pictures, maybe a few crummy videos and I will expect a whole lot of envy in return :3

 

We demand pictures in order for you to get envy :thumbup:

Strade Bianchi honors Spartacus:

 

The race once again begins and ends in Siena, with the traditional grand finale on the Piazza del Campo after a short, steep climb into the heart of the Tuscan city. Sector 8 of dirt road, the 11.5-kilometre stretch at Monte Sante Marie, has been renamed in honour of Fabian Cancellara, who claimed a record third victory in Strade Bianche during his final season in 2016.

Attention, all Classics fans!!!

 

2017 TOUR OF FLANDERS COURSE UNVEILED ????????????????????

 

The length of the course has been increased by a mere couple of kilometres to give a total distance of 259.5 kilometres, which will once again feature 18 hellingen – the short, sharp, and often cobbled climbs that are emblematic of the second Monument of the season.

“We wanted to keep the rhythm of the final 75km," said race director Wim Van Herreweghe. “The now recognisable and intense rhythm thereby has given us in recent years haunting finals. It should become a real tradition.”
