Yeeehaaa


We got 6 (7 if you count the Sunweb male team who are NL based under German license). Really happy with the current situation of Dutch cycling. Great riders in both male and female side.

It wasn't eurosport. It was the norwegian broadcast having a major technical f*** up.
Power failure took out the whole Fløyen area, where the heli-link receiver was placed.
I find it quite difficult to blame that on the broadcaster.

The course was meh, thought it would be more selective.

yesterday Niewiadoma said the route and the hill were much too easy. given men have a bit more power and ride a tad faster, we couldn't really expect much more. IMHO given the profile the race itself wasn't all that bad, few nice moves, great attack by Alphaville, but that 10km slope to the finish line was a buzzkiller.

Sanremo-esque, i'd say. Anyway: Innsbruck might be more to your taste. Maybe there will be fewer Norwegian flags along the route too. Maybe.

They should have tossed the climb from the TT into the course.

That would have been awesome (maybe not for the riders, but certainly for us!)

they're going to need a very climber friendly course to deter from winning a few more.

^The climb to Fløyen for the RR? No other way down but with the funicular. That would of course have made for a different race. :thumbup:
The steeper climb of Birkelundsbakken used for the TTT and all ITTs except ME was considered for the RR, but according to what I've understood they chose Landåslien/Salmon Hill to get a course that would suit EBH and/or Kristoff.

^^^ Well, they almost succeeded if not for the Sagan factor.

Bit like San Remo but could have been a few kms shorter from the top of the hill. Every route has it`s charm though.
I like routes made for puncheurs. So Innsbruck looks good.
