    Tour of Catalunya (it's somewhere near Spain) starts tomorrow with some decent riders.
    Movistar and Mitchleton Scott look strong with ValvPiti, Quintana, Soler, both Yates and Chaves, to name but 6.

    A World Tour race is a minor race?
     
  10. You do realise the OP was in relation to a World Tour race?

    The one I'm interested in is Thibaut Pinot. Only two days of racing so far this year but this will be an important part of his build-up to the Giro. Hoping for big things from him this year.

    Great to see Terpstra back on top form at E3. I didn't see Le Samyn a few weeks ago but it sounds like it was a very similar kind of race - identical outcome, at least, including Gilbert taking 2nd place.

    After his quiet 2017, I thought he might be past his best. Happy to be proved wrong.
