    Whilst the cycling circus is getting into the new season in far off places like Down under and Oman, the classics are starting to slowly creep closer.

    I just decided to put a few dates in my calendar in anticipation.

    Some dates for your calendar.

    March 02 - Omloop Het Nieuwsblad
    March 09 - Strade Bianche
    March 23 - Milan - SanRemo
    March 31 - Gent-Wevelgem
    April 07 - Ronde van Vlaanderen
    April 14 - Paris - Roubaix
    April 21 - Amstel Gold Race
    April 28 - Liège - Bastogne - Liège

    May 11 - June 06 Giro d'Italia
    July 06 -28 Tour de France
    August 24 - September 15 Vuelta d'Espania

    September 29 - World Championship in the UK

    I've not paid attention since the end of summer (except for the WC), so besides Valverde being in the rainbow jersey this year, I'm not yet caught up with who transferred where, what new team kit looks like and even which team changes there are.

    Ah well. There's a month or 2 to get up to speed still.

    They're trying to steal Sal and my souls. The cheeky spamming twat.

    Ah shit, I forgot about it despite this great idea for a thread. Nice for Stybar though.

    I went looking at the weekend. I paid £39.99 for the year, which I thought was OK. I do wish I'd taken up the Prime Video offer when the Australian Open was on – I think it was super-cheap for six months or so.

    I didn't realize Stybar had 0 victories last season despite Quick Step raking in over 70 victories.

    I'm pleased for him.

    Strad3 Bianche this weekend! I like that race.

    I was programming the decoder for tomorrow and I noticed the Belgian TV will be showing the women's race as well.

    12:25 -> 1 o'clock news: live report of the women's race
    1:30 -> 1:50: summary of the women's race finale
    1:50 -> 4 o'clock: live report of the men's race

    Not a bad thing.

    I missed last weekend races but Strade Bianchi I quite enjoy watching, whilst getting fat on the sofa eating m&m's

    Is Would Van Aert racing this year?

    Yes, he is. Quite a few big names missing though. No Sagan, no Valverde ...

    Yeah, sorry. Me being patient usually never pays off.

    Um, what am I supposed to make of this?
    Trying to watch Strada Bianche, first time I’ve used the Eurosport app-

    The women are on, but only for an hour, at both 11:30 and 11:25. There may be the last two hours or so of the Men’s race, though it is either blank or says, helpfully, “cycling” and there appear to be two options that are on at different times. Maybe some highlights later, who the fuck knows?
    I’m not sure how you can fuck TV listings up this badly. But, first use, I’m not impressed.

    Heh. The website is equally confusing. I wonder if it hops between the two channels?

    Alaphilippe, as favourite + Stybar & Lampaert in the chasing group.

    It's going to be another QS dominated spring season.

    I loved how he powered through to catch them as they were stalling and then just went past them at his pace. That's all he could do really. Keep his pace for as long as he could and take 3rd after they inevitably left him behind.

    A super-close result at Tirreno-Adriatico… usually skip over individual time-trials, but today's was worth hanging in for.

    I missed all of Tirreno.
    Nice moral boost for Campenaerts to take the time trial win ahead of his attempt to beat Wiggins' hour record next month.

    Nice to see some attacking on the climbs in Paris-Nice. Makes a change from the deer-in-the-headlights let's follow the Sky train for as long as we can approach you normally see in the Tour

    I just dozed off in front of the TV, watching the Primavera.

    Woke up in time to see the mad dash to the Cipressa.
