    didn't matter in the end (as they finished 2nd and 3rd) but I really think UEC (and also UCI) should change the rules again, and prevent WT riders from competing for a jersey they will never be able to wear anyway.

    talking about "wearing the jersey"... does anyone know (Lukas probably) if it's mandatory now? Or could/would van der Poel or Démare stick to their national champion jersey if they win on Wednesday?

    And the  Küng and queen of European ITT racing are:

     *nl #champeu Dutch Lady #champeu  *nl

     *ch #champeu Swiss Guy #champeu  *ch

    Who would have guessed that?  :D

    Instead of the ordinary results list for the men, here's the combined U-23 + Elite result's list. It was the same parcours for both classes and the top 10 here basically speaks loudly in favor of dropping the U23 class at this race, doesn't it?

    And for the ladies:


    CHAPEU! (to all except the TV team)

    The rule for national champion's kits has "must", while the one for Continental champions has "can".
    In other words, a national champion must wear that jersey - unless they have won a 'higher-quality' championship, i.e. Continental or Worlds.

    If they wanted to, Van der Poel or Démare could stick to #champnl resp. #champfr ... but of course, a simpler solution would be simple to ride in support of a Dutch/French teammate in the Euros. ;)

    I yesterday learned that the Continental Federation also can enforce the jersey to be worn though. ;) Apparently UEC did that in the past.

    And if they do again, it has priority over the national champion jersey.

    I would disagree: they are competing for a title and a medal, not just a jersey, and if some people are disqualified from the event by being too good for it, then the title is hollow ("Europe's best time trialist under the age of 23 who is not considered good enough to be picked up by a WT")

    And would eligibility to wear the jersey the next year not mean it would have to be a race for U22s?

    yeah, maybe you are right. But the traditional categories have shifted so much over the past years, with riders jumping from Juniors to World Tour directly and so on, that it may need some kind of change I think.

    About that crash - was it a Jasper Disaster again?

    Candidate to replace Geraint Thomas in the classics?

    Philipsen and Kristoff missing in the final, but the top 3 are definetly good cyclists and high quality sprinters, and this is the championship worth winning this year, there will be no #rainbows and no Olympic gold medals.

    I think the Euro championship just stepped up one step?

    oh, there probably will be World Championships. Nice, Imola and Valdera are very interested, and apparently able to set it all up over the coming three weeks.

    it was a great race.  Very attacking, with lots of quality riders in the mix.  The last lap was probably the least aggressive with everyone prepping themselves for the bunch sprint, but prior to that, it was the Dutchies, GB, Spanish, and pretty much everyone else pinging off the front at regular intervals, and the French and Italians trying desperately to keep everything together for a bunch sprint.

    Good race to watch ... will be sad going back to the boringness of Grand Tour style riding  :lol

    The Womens race yesterday was a cracker.  it was only 109km - and that attacks started straight away, and continued pretty much the whole race.

    The Dutch team was so incredibly strong, they put 2 into the first move, and then decided that they wanted to split the peleton ... so they went to the front and split it, putting 7 (out of their 8 team members) into the front.

    They then started just pinging them off the front until another move got away, and they had Annamiek Van Vleuten off with 2 others.

    There was a lot of attacking from behind with other riders trying to join them, but eventually the Dutch decided they would like a sprinter out front as well, so Chantal Blaak bridged ...

    and then Van Vleuten won anyway :D


    As much as I would have liked to see Elisa Longo Borghini win it - the Dutch did deserve the win.  They worked very hard and played it perfectly,
