Dwars door West-Vlaanderen - Johan Museeuw Classic

Sunday, March 5th

The 2nd race of the Napoleon Games Cup takes place today, and it's a new addition to the cycling calendar, risen out of the ash of the stage race Driedaagse van West-Vlaanderen. It has cobbles and hills, + it's raining, so it should be good

    Well, I can do recording, ok - but only races that are broadcasted...
    Rumours have it the peloton is burst to pieces already. Sounds great! The Napoleon cup is on a positive trend! :)

    Of course, if this turns out someday to be the industry standard integrated handlebar-computer-braking solution then I'll eat my kevlar-reinforced aerodynamic hat.

    I watched parts of it. Maybe expectations were a bit too high after the good opening weekend and a brilliant le Samyn, but I felt it was a bit underwhelming

    Handzame Classic

    Friday, March 17

    The next race of the Napoleon Games Cycling Cup is the self-appointed Primavera van het Noorden on Friday - the sprinters "classic" for all sprinters not going to Italy for Milano-Sanremo. In the past years Erik Baska, Gianni Meersman, Luka Mezgec, Kenny de Haes and Francesco Chicchi made it on the honor list. So well... yeah, some of those have won one or another race elsewhere in their career at least.

    Defending champion #bora Erik Baska is not one of them. But maybe he can make it 2 on Friday.

    The provisional start list features some more or less prominent names though...



    ...among those last year's Coupe de France winner #katusha Baptiste Planckaert, #lotto Kris Boeckmans, #lotto Moreno Hofland, defending Napoleon Cup champion #verandas Timothy Dupont, #wallonie Roy Jans, U23 world champion #joker Kristoffer Halvorsen, the Canadian Cannonball #academy Guillaume Boivin, #aquablue Adam Blythe and 2013 race winner #wanty Kenny de Haes. Additionally #quickstep Quick Step brings some firepower for potentially successful attacks, namely Dries Devenyns, Jack Bauer and Iljo Keisse.

    A profile can be found in the ~pdf technical guide, but is not of much use anyway. Still... as we all know, boring cycling is better than no cycling: the race will be live on VTM, and maybe also on some local Eurosport channels.

    I can now confirm that the race will be shown on the Eurosport player from 15-45cet.
    Probably without commentary, but given the alternative would probably be Kirby, that's a win, win in my book! :D

    Finally! The #joker train is back on track after derailing outside Nokeren this wednesday!

    Fantastic sprint by #joker #rainbow Kristoffer Halvorsen (aka. "Doffen") handling chaos like Viviani!



    Where's the jumping happily around on the floor smiley when you need it?  :D

    I dunno, in some aspects I don't quite easily identify as a bird  ;)

    Anyway, here's more. Fast forward to 22 minutes should give you the last 2.5 km.
