It's Monday - it must be Belgium! We will pass through Luxembourg on our way back to France. This is a lumpy day, but with the exception of the finish into Longwy, this looks very likely to be another day with no selections made. The route is on open and good roads. The uphill finish is short - but sharp - with a max gradient of 11%. This looks like a BOTD day, with the break getting caught at the end. It might be a day for Tommy Voelckler to get in the break and animate the race, hoping for a s...

The question today will be whether our TT champ from yesterday will keep the yellow jersey, and all my bets will be on "Yes."  Towards the end of the day, there are two lumps and a brief Cat 4 climb.

It doesn't seem that long since we were last here at the Planche des Belles Fil...

Legend of a race has been revived from its ashes. As a compensation for the loss of the “Tour of Flanders” start place Golazo Sports offers Bruges the revival of the 11-town tour (Elfstedenronde) after 28 years!

The 11-town tour started out in 1943 and has been held uninterruptedly until 1974 and then had a brief period between 1987 & 1989. The field never really was international but for Dutchmen and some Belgian-resident Brits like Michael Wright who came 2nd in 1969. Otherwise som...

2017 Tour de Suisse

With most of the Tour de France heavy hitters at the Dauphine, the Tour de Suisse is a great opportunity for some of the 2nd tier GC guys to do something special.

Some of the most important

- TJ Van Garderen and Greg Van Avermaet will both be looking to do good things for BMC
- Peter Sagan for Bora Handrohe
- Simon Spilak for Katusha
