Road Cycling World Championships

#1

Women’s time trial yesterday won by 41 year old Amber Neben yesterday, eight years after her first title.

Rabo Liv and Etixx unsurprisingly won the team time trials so the only talking point has been how badly the organisers have dealt with the heat. Riders being moved out of the shade when they’re trying to recover so TV cameras can go there and really bad time scheduling for the women’s TTT.

The men’s TT is currently on the BBC website and red button. I reckon Dennis might edge Dumoulin.

I hate all the helmet/kit clashes. Lotto yellow with Oranje is probably the worst.


#2

Maybe I shouldn’t have written off Tony Martin…


#3

Bump for the women’s road race. 50k left and the Dutch attacking relentlessly.


#4

Cycling after a mystery virus has wiped out all humans without nandrolone in their system.


#5

just catching up on this now. so nice to see van vleuten back at it after that horrible, horrible crash in rio.
