    Default Flanders/RVV (spoilers)

    It's coming shortly. Looks like it will be cold and wet, who do you have? Being a big cyclocross guy I'm rooting for Stybar but would also be good with Van Marke or GVA finally win a big one.

    cyclinghub.tv has a higher def feed than I've found elsewhere. Hit the livestream tab and enjoy - it's the Eurosport feed.

    Wiggans is having bad luck so far. Lots of chasing back on.

    Yeah, nasty. You would expect the drivers to be a bit more skillful.

    It's ok, he's been training for precisely these types of efforts with his powermeter.

    Neutral support just took out the FDJ team car and one of their riders. Is that the same car that wrecked Sargent? Is the driver 14 years old or just drunk?

    Supposedly a different driver. The driver that took Sargeant out was supposed to be pulled after that incident.

    Glad to see Kristoff win, especially from so far out.

    Another fade by Sagan, though. I was almost pulling for him after everything in the past week, though.

    Sharp tactical decisions and positioning are so central to the victories in the races this spring, I figure that everyone in the top 10 or so had a chance to win the race, but somewhere along the line there was a flat, a drift off the back, a missed feed, a moment of brain drift mid-pack, etc. that sucked out a few watts and eliminated them from the top 3.

    Sagan came from a team where he finished by himself in almost every race to a team that seemed at least to promise him better support - and he's finishing by himself again. He went for the money but if he wanted wins he probably should have signed with Garmin-Cannondale or similar.

    One picture I saw looked like a Roubaix fork. Seat post is certainly an aero post, though. And front end and tube shapes look Venge.

    Looks like a Venge to me. Kristoff was also riding the aero frame Canyon, whatever that's called.

    Edit: Aeroad. Has one of the nicer looking integrated handlebar/stem units IMHO.

    I was on the literal edge of my seat until 20m to go... that was amazing.

    Fabian Cancellara turned his tv off after the Paterberg: "Verdammt I own those guys"
    ps must admit Kristoff looked awefully strong there.

    Yea, I have to agree that Fabian probably watched it thinking that was his. Kristoff looked like the second coming of Thor Hushovd. I don't think anyone will let him go up the road again any more than they would Boonen or Cancellara in their day.
