    Teams pulling out of the Italian races… I suspect there will be a tipping point later this afternoon which will see them cancelled.

    I think the organizers would have wanted to go ahead no matter what but with the government closing schools and demanding sports events to be organized behind closed doors, they probably caved.

    Too bad for Phillip Gilbert. He's keen on winning that 5th monument but San Remo is tough race to try and win and he's not getting any younger.

    I doubt they'll be able to move it to the fall as the organizers are proposing.

    He's at the end of his contract with Ineos. Surely this has to follow you around after a while, it's not the first time he acts up.

    I'm watching last year's Amstel Gold again. The sunshine and advertising is really making me want a radler

    Enjoy, what a finish!
    My lounge is an impromptu schoolroom now, no chance of watching cycling during the day as usual, bah.

    It was great – so exciting. I remember rooting for Kwia to take it, but when MvdP's train appears in the distance, snaking over the width of the road the atmosphere is incredible.

    Anyway, there's a documentary above Movistar in 2019 on Netflix: https://www.netflix.com/search?q=movistar&jbv=81130094&jbp=0&jbr=0

    That's worth a view!

    I watched the virtual offering of the Ronde this past weekend.
    It was ... weird. Props to the public broadcast company and the teams/riders for trying to offer something as an alternative though.

    Naessens, who came 2nd, immediately got shit on social by his regular training group (all pros from different teams that live near each other) who posted a sketch from a comedy show in which a poor performing amateur cyclist decides to quit his team after they lay into him because he's such an embarrassment to them. :-D

    Eurosport have been replaying the 2018 Giro. Up to the ITT where Simon has just said "hopefully no bad days"… 😬

    My Eurosport subscription renewed, for full price, just a handful of days before the lock downs started. I set a reminder but forgot to attach an alert to it. Shitsticks.
    Haven’t touched it since, go me.

    They've thrown in an extra month at least! The latest of those behind the scenes at the Ronde documentaries has just been on , and I watched 2018's last night. They're so good, and even when you know the result, getting the footage from all the players makes for an exciting and tension-filled hour.

    Ah, YouTube, found them and they’re bloody brilliant.
    Watched the Ronde 102 one- loved the old dude on the motorbike bossing the whole thing. Inside the cars it’s surprisingly chaotic, wonder if that’s a factor of the randomness of the classics a bit. Surprising amount of piss discussion too.
    Only shame was the women’s race did t get anything like the screen time and respect it deserves in the editing.

    Heh. It’s on iplayer. They’re using Rouvy, and the video backdrops are interesting, but the player models are all barrel-chested apes 😅

    Tour For All Zwift series is more fun than the above – the power-ups and drafting make it way more tactical and thus entertaining. It's on Eurosport each afternoon this week.

    Oct 25 is nuts, last day of Giro (ITT), Paris Roubaix (men and women) and a huge stage of the Vuelta (Aubisque and finishing up the Tourmalet).

    Could be a wet roubaix for the first time in ages.

    I don't know what is scheduled on what day for the WCs but the first day overlaps with the last day of the Tour.
