Provisional startlists are in the roadbook but they will not shock you (check metarace.com.au for finals later in the week). They added 1.5km of flat to the RR circuit to appease Mark Renshaw or something. The crits and Sunday road races will be broadcast (geo-restricted).

    Quote
    Cycling Australia has advised that due to extreme weather being forecast for the region, and in the interests of the health and wellbeing of athletes, volunteers and spectators, the day of racing on Saturday 6 January at the FedUni Road National Championships will be shortened.

    The modified schedule will see the U19 Men’s and U19 Women’s road races now run concurrently.

    2017 had two examples of this not working very well. Will the Aussies manage to avoid the same mistakes?

    Both Aus races were pretty good generally


    Happy for Malseed - she worked really hard and certainly deserved the win.  I thought she was going to be dropped by Spratt when they were off on their own, but she kept at it.



    The mens race was a good race, and I was happy that one of those who made the race actually won it rather than someone who had spent the whole race following wheels.

    As in the womens, the Michelton Scott team (Greenedge) had a large numerical advantage .... and they did use their numbers pretty well.  The Drapac team had both the main team and a development team in there, so had quite a few in numbers as well .. but it fell to BMC to do the chasing mid race as they were the majors who missed the break.   Gerro and Scottson chased it back, then abandoned along with Rohan Dennis leaving Porte alone.

    Porte did try hard - but with Caleb Ewen in the final bunch, no one really wanted to bridge to the few up front and bring him with them ... allowing Edmonson to stay away.

    all in all - nice welcome back to racing

    I happened upon a couple of CCC guys out on the road last summer. We all waited together for a canal bridge and I had plenty of time to look over their gear. It is really a TV thing, I was forced to conclude, because that orange looks absolutely fine in real life. I agree about the hope for the champion's skinsuit though.

    I agree, it looked far less in-your-face the past four years in Sibiu. Less fluo, more dull, if that makes sense.

    But #ccc with a *si flag ... just no.

    I thought the national champs would only be next week - as usual, the weekend before the start of the Tour.
    Turns out many of them didn't move to re-align with the Tour (which is a week later this year).

    This was one of those races that was kinda cool to semi-follow on twitter.

    Every lap there was one of these....

    https://twitter.com/cdncyclist/status/1010610320723795969

    ..... and t-72's Canadian cousin had positioned himself at the top of the climb with his camera...

    USA Cycling National Championships Road Race today from Knoxville, Tennessee.

    Women live now.
    Men's race starts in two hours at 1:00 p.m. EST but I'll be on a train so won't be able to update any info.

    Start List
    Can't say I recognize more than about four names. Chris Horner is verified. #195 on the list. No teammates though.

    Live stream available on Youtube:

    I'm generally not a fan of U.S. domestic races, but watching the replay of this race was quite good. The final two laps were pretty entertaining, and the course seemed to present some interesting challenges (although I'm unable to find a profile in a format that I can copy/paste).

    The camera coverage seemed quite good, too, but for the one and only commercial break that I saw, which occurred exactly as the the winning solo breakaway unfolded—so they missed that particular move. Oh well.



    1. Jonathan Brown,  #axeon Hagens Berman Axeon, in 4:41:11
    2. Robin Carpenter, Rally Cycling, at 0:00:45
    3. Jacob Rathe, Jelly Belly-Maxxis, at 0:01:17
    4. Gavin Mannion, UnitedHealthcare, at 0:01:21
    5. Benjamin King, Dimension Data, at 0:02:41
    6. Kiel Reijnen, Trek-Segafredo, at 0:02:41
    7. Brent Bookwalter, BMC Racing, at 0:02:42
    8. Lawrence Warbasse, Aqua Blue Sport, at 0:02:44
    9. Thomas Revard, Hagens Berman Axeon, at 0:02:28
    10. Brandon McNulty, Rally Cycling, at 0:03:24



    Johnny Brown was an interesting winner. After being part of a decisive five-man breakaway, he jumped away with about 20 km remaining and hung onto a healthy 40-50 sec lead for the remainder of the race.

    Trivia:
    Johnny Brown is just 21-years-old.
    He was the U23 Nat Champ in 2016.
    His older brother is  #efd rider Nate Brown.

    We had a pretty decent race in *be yesterday down in the Wallonian wilderness that is Binche. The organisers put together a rolling circuit with some windy sections and a nice uphill final kilometre, just over half of it on cobbles.

    Not much happened for a good while but it was pretty clear that, with #lotto well represented in the BOTD, it would be up to a coalition of #bmc, #wanty, #ag2r and #quickstep to do a lot of the chasing: they had riders of their own upfront but most were not their picked guys. These included Campenaerts, De Buyst, Backaert, Van Hooydonck and eventual race winner Lampaert.

    #quickstep of course has probably never been this international, so its Belgian contingent didn't have it all easy out there, while defending champion Naesen, doubtless motivated by his great fear of "going back to brown", had Vandenbergh and a still half-baked Bakelants to help out.

    It seemed pretty clear with about two laps / 35km to go that, with #bmc and at least half of #wanty already burned out, the strongest riders in the bunch would need to sacrifice whoever they could to bring the gap down enough to jump across to the rump BOTD.

    Those last two laps looked more like a French one-day race, full of attacking and little groups with a handful of seconds between them. The #bmc gamble on Van Avermaet and Teuns failed miserably as the youngster punctured inopportunely and the Olympic champion failed to make an impact on his own. Gilbert slingshot himself toward the leaders and almost every rival who followed him - there were very few - had a 'stepper on his wheel.

    The three or four early men who held out were now joined by Gilbert, Vanmarcke, Claeys of #cofidis and, for a while at least, a strong looking Benoot. #ag2r and GVA had completely missed the move.

    Enjoying perhaps the best hand all day, #lotto promptly folded as Campenaerts crashed, Benoot failed to hold the wheels and De Buyst began to fade. Gilbert attacked with Vanmarcke and what looked like the winning move was caught with less than 10km to go. Vanmarcke was eventually dropped while Stuyven was closely shadowed by Duracell bunny Lampaert. When Lampaert jumped, Stuyven couldn't or wouldn't chase and the West Fleming avenged his ITT title loss earlier in the week, finishing ahead of a visibly disappointed Gilbert.
