    Yeah, once they caught Alaphillipe. Quickstep decided to bet on Ballerini's sprint.

    So it sort of stopped there, didn't it.

    It's not often a big group goes to the sprint together.

    Kuurne-Brussel-Kuurne's final is a lot more exciting than the Omloop yesterday! Largely thanks to Mathieu Van Dde Poel it seems. I only just started watching.

    Indeed: his tiny frame in yesterdays break and again in the action today was impressive. Was surprised to see Narvaez going two-up for a time.

    That Pedersen fellow could do quite well if he just keeps working hard and putting the time in.

    I might be missing an obvious joke here.

    You mean ex Danish Champion, ex-World Champion, winner of Gent-Wevelgem 2020 Mads Pedersen? Yeah, I guess he might win a race or two if he keeps at it.

    I had a sneaky suspicion that was the case.
    My apologies.

    Strade Bianchi on Staurday, coverage on ES starts at 12:50, field is stacked, should be a good one.

    Should just be finished on zwift about then.

    A mere 50k planned compared to tadej's plans.

    Longest time in the saddle for a while though, so i expect a pained taint after.

    I once did 120k on a turbo, nearly five hours, in order to get some stupid trophy on Zwift, round and round the volcano. Probably my most stupid ďgamingĒ achievement.
    An hour and a half is the absolute most I can stand these days.

    Canít wait for SB, has fast become one of my fave races. Havenít actually mentioned it to the other half yet, but if I do and we have a row then I can stomp off and watch it anyway, canít lose 😜

    Working today so will miss Strade. Annoyed as it one if my favourites. Will catch up on Eurosport. Anyone gone for the GCN plus stuff yet? Always an option.

    Think Iím gonna do a 50k loop either tomorrow or Monday. Like tad just been on Zwift for the last few months. Just doing hour sessions. So legs are empty of mileage but shouldnít be too hard to catch back up.

    5.5 hours Zwifting, and 11 times up virtual Box Hill at new year, did it with a group of like minded idiots or I'd definitely of bailed earlier. Way harder than 100 miles on the road. Crap, I need to place some silly bets and get couple of decent beers in for SB already.

    53km in the end, feeling ok so far.

    Probably walking like john wayne tomorrow!

    I'm not sure I'd be willing to do more than a couple of hours on a bike indoors though. 2hrs was ok, an hour is my usual sweet spot for an evening session through the week.

    We rented a holiday home for the weekend.
    I'm currently watching Strade Bianche without any beers available.:-/

    Good thing we also ran out of butter and they're doing a quick run to the shops.

    A finish tailor made for Alaphilipe. To do that to him mid climb is outrageous.

    I assume it's just a trick of the camera, but this looks insanely steep.
