    Default The season starts this Saturday. (SPOILERS)

    With respect to all the races all over the globe so far.
    It's cold and rainy, and the gutter too slimy to ride.
    Omloop het nieuwsblad starts Saturday!

    It's good to get the scrimmages out of the way and get down to business.

    Last year four new winners out of the 5 "monuments".
    Would be so surprised if we see the same this year.

    Agreed. Both of the starter races were bumped up in UCI status. I think that might make some more hungry to podium.

    Is there anything wrong w/ not using discs? Is there any alpine descent on saturday? Then ride w/ the other brakes. Would the sponsors allow it? Why?

    If mods add "Spoilers" to the title (please) we can make this the Spring Classics thread.

    Have Eurosport cranking and it already looks like someone got blown off the road. Didn't catch who or what actually happened, but woohoo! racing!

    Aero wheels on windy Northern European days likely cause more carnage than disc brakes.

    Looked like someone came to a standing stop on one of the climbs and that caused a tumble that broke apart the peloton and allowed several heavy hitters to escape.

    edit: Actually that group is second on the road. Boonen may be in the third or fourth group. Classic Classics fragmentations!
