I'll just be happy to see him on the bike again.. I don't expect any fireworks from him though.. But hopefully he has recovered well enough to be there... Bora yet to confirm their squad. Edited by Gen

He made it look like they were on junior gears TBH. After he went left to get faaar away from mobile chicane demare(who got blocked a bit by Mads-o the irony) he sommer gaps them and goois a look right and was like when are these okes going speed up. I am not really a Bennet fan but he does seem to be the fastest at the moment. Credit where it's due to him and Quickstep.

I'm a Bennett fan, but its because of the name :)

Well DQS messed that up hopelessly [emoji849] a couple hundred meters out and Sam was gapped already; I’m surprised he even managed to get back into the frame by the line.

"The lineup for #TirrenoAdriatico is just silly.
 
Pogačar, Almeida, Fuglsang, Yates, Landa, Nibali, Quintana, Bernal, Bilbao, Woods, Alaphilippe, Thomas, Bardet - and that's just the GC boys!
 
You've also got the likes of Van der Poel, Van Aert, Ganna, Sagan...the list goes on!"

It's a really nice race some beautiful scenery and the normally ride through some really old towns.. So pretty.

Not sure why it’s silly, the early season stage races are for the guys building for the Grand Tours. They need these stage races, so it’s fairly obvious to expect to see the best taking part.

I don't think the guy meant silly as in the way you are interpreting it.. More like a very strong field with added flavour lol

Does anyone know why cycling coverage is so k@k this year?  Omloop, Kuurne, Strade Bianche, none of these have been televised, previous years they were

 

 

Any live coverage on SS?
