    Likewise, Allaphillipe has an incredible team. Hard to see him pulling out the same results if he rode for, say, Arkea-Samsic.

    Accept Bernal's team brings something extra to the table, but the guy is 22.

    Cool. We were thinking about going to Vieste and Gargano National Park in a couple years.

    With Sagan going to the Giro the Tour of California becomes less relevant as he was one of the biggest attractions IIRC.

    As to the Giro, the mountains are great but has anyone else come to the conclusion that these races have almost become too mountainous? In this regard the Vuelta has almost become extreme.

    We'll start the season when the spring classics are on the near horizon. I vote we move the discussion here:

    That , together with the smile Jose de Cauwer had in the commentator booth of Sporza when Van Aert won that sprint in the Tour.
    No words, just a head shaking smile.
    Will look for a clip.

    Just going to post that myself.

    It really was quite an impressive season all in all.
