    Who is your tip for Flanders? i'm going with Mathieu van der Poel, he'll go nuts up the Paterberg and nobody will be able to follow into the finish..... thoughts?

    He is just about the classiest rider around, but it's 50km further than gent wevelgem and 90 further than dwars door vlaandren.

    Super open race. I like Stybar, van aert and hard fat bastard kristoff. Lampaert and Jungels as smokies. I think Naassens and Gilbert are underdone after being sick. Sagan has been struggling and Van Avaermat hasn't looked on top form. Maybe he's been sandbagging? I hope Matthews puts in a ripper.

    De Vlaeminck wasn't just classy - He was consistently classy. Freddy Maertens looked a little sad.

    Very nice. Makes me feel safe and environmentally friendly. I'll just have to ask my neighbours if they mind me using excavators on the South side during the 10 years of construction.
    Thanks, D.T.

    Paris-Roubaix this weekend fellas, been a couple of years now since we were there :( Mitch Dockers crash started to unfold right in front of us and finished about 70 meters down the road! Then we had a prime spot on the finish straight of the velodrome to see Mat Haymans win, probably never repeat that experience.

    How do you think will win?

    1) Zdenek Stybar (solo)
    2) Peter Sagan (in a small group)
    3) Wout van Aert​

    Stybar was apparently sick at Flander's.

    It'd be great is GVA or Oliver Naesen have a big day! Last year I did a dozen or more solid training rides with Stijn Vandenbergh in the bunch, so it's always great to see him tapping out 400+ watts hour after hour on the front of a group, the guy is a farkin animal.
