Stage 4 – Tour de France

Already a nice tour so far, shame about the crashes on first stage though. I didnt have the luck for stage 2, in the end the bookies favourite won as you probably know. I often wait in GTs for the ‘break-away lottery’ and I really think with the current situation that there are a lot […]

Strade Bianche

It’s good to be back with real road racing in Burgos.. but my mind is especially set on this weekend. Finally we can see a great oneday-race again and boys.. it’s going to be a wild one. Strade Bianche is ofcourse known for the hard gravel roads, but now it’s ridden on the 1st of […]

Paris-Nice stage 4 TT

Unlike many (i Follow) on Twitter I really enjoy TT races. Maybe because i like to ride them myself also 🙂 Sometimes with good anticipation of the weather forecasts value can be found. I was going to be all over Asgreen but i think 6.5 is a bit too short. My eyes caught Bettiol (26) […]

Le Samyn

I love this race. A hard race on cobbles! Looking at the odds I always look at the riders of Deceuninck Quickstep. Last year i had some on Declercq and Senechal. Declercq is a good helper and everyone at DQS doesn’t mind giving him a win in a race. Last year however he was chased down […]

Omloop het Nieuwsblad 2020

For me this is the real start of the cycling season! I love this race! This year it’s going to be a windy and wet one. Because it’s still winter the rain will make the riders very cold, it could be an epic day like the world’s in Harrogate. I think we as cycling fans […]

World Championship Cycling 19

I can’t wait for this race to begin, the parcours looks very good. Hope there will be lots of attacking. The Netherlands are all focused on Mathieu van der Poel. As you can imagine, he is the top favourite and in red hot form. The problem is however, everyone knows he is very fast. So […]

Stage 12 picks Vuelta

Today I really thought I had the winning pick in Aranburu, or my second pick Cavagna. Aranburu was again to eager to display his strength too early and Cavagna just didn’t have the climbing legs. Tomorrow a stage with a very nice finish, a wall of 2.6km with 10.6% avg gradient. Perfect to launch a […]

Stage 9 Vuelta picks

This stage will be one for the top climbers. A short queen stage with a finish above 2000 metres. > 2000 metres is Valverde’s kryptonite, so I’m not backing him. Although it’s barely above 2000 metres I think Movistar can and will play the Quintana card tomorrow.. and who will follow the Weeman from Colombia. […]

Stage 7 Vuelta picks

Reading Astana’s comments on yesterday, it all came down to that they didnt want to ‘waste energy’ chasing the break. I can’t see Bahrain also wasting a lot of energy to chase. All adds up to another day for the break, the trend of 2019 so far. I can’t see jumbo visma chasing hard or […]

Stage 5 picks

Today is the first MTF of this Vuelta. Being just stage 5 I would normally say it’s for the GC guys. But it’s a trend nowadays break can make it. Has to do something with teams being 1 rider less than previous years. There are some good climbers who already lost time. If the break […]
