  2. Looks like clashes with the Ronde van Vlaanderen. I don't know why they can't schedule these things separately.

    (Puts joke away for another year)

    I'm just wondering if Aert van Wout will beat Wout van Aert lol! Seems like the favourite out of the two! Screenshot_20180330-172035.png

    I always thought it was the Welsh classic, Rhondda Valley.

    Or the Cutting Crew's I Just Dai in Your Arms Tonight.

    My TV coverage here starts at 10:00 Sunday morning and I look forward to 7+ hours of action from Belgium. As always, I'm going for a Gilbert victory, but there are many candidates.

  8. There's always the Ronde Van Calderdale?
    Otherwise known as the http://thehelloftheworth.blogspot.co.uk/

    There is a sportif there which is on Sunday 8th
    https://www.britishcycling.org.uk/events/details/167770/Ronde-Van-Calderdale-2018


    This features some fearsome cobbled ascents, such as 'Shibden Wall' (Lee Lane), that (in 1988?) even made Sean Kelly take to the pavement in search of a smoother passage!
    And Trooper Lane.............. it's supposed to climb approximately the height of Blackpool Tower, in 1/2 mile!!!

    Gary(?) forget his username on here, has ridden it on his trike!

    Where will you be standing?

    What bonny head attire will you be wearing? And what colour jacket?

    Maybe next year I'll join you. :cold::cheers:

    Anyone fancy Nibali’s chances? I was very tempted to pick him in the punditry, maybe even put a couple of quid on him. He’s an unknown quantity in this race but after MSR, it’s impossible to rule him out.
