Paris-Nice 2015 *spoilers"


May I slip a couple of P-N photos in from 1966, M? :smile:



Ah, Nice, the place where our flight was delayed by cyclists.
No, really.

We'd seen the Grand Depart Individual TT in Monaco on the Saturday, and were flying home on the Sunday. Got to the airport, and the flight is already showing as delayed. No worries, we check in our lugguage and watch the TDF on the TV. It is going past the airport, so after a bit we wander out across the car park and watch the peloton go by. All very interesting. Then we go and check in, and carry on watching progress on TV until the flight was called. Onto the plane, and the captian greets us with "We're sorry for the delay to the flight, which was caused by some chaps on bicycles..." the race helicopters meant that they'd closed the airport airspace.

Porte's had a good start to the year.
Agree... and with Geraint they have a very good co-leader as well
(although this year's PN is a bit uncharacteristic and might be a bit too hard for GT)
(don't think Wiggo is interested in the GC, considering his focus on the 1-day classics)

And indeed TA draws the 4 biggest names (when talking about the grand Tour contenders) but still pretty nice line-up in PN:
GC: Fernandez/Intxausti, Bardet, Kelderman/Kruijswijk, Fuglsang/Aru/L.L. Sanchez, Kwiatek, Jungels, Machado, Wellens/Gallopin, Yates, Tejay/Dennis, Costa/Valls, Talansky, Barguil, GT/Porte, Majka, Sepulveda

And especially on the sprint front, there's no complaining:okay:
Sprint: Demare, Bouhanni, Nizzolo, Coquard, Kristoff, Greipel, Matthews, Degenkolb
