      I think Almeida will do it. I cannot imagine that the organisers can let the tough Alpine stages take place because of the weather (at least not as planned) - I live in the area and there is still snow down to an altitude of 1800 meters...

    Off topic question. Now that you have an app and race pass does that mean there won't be any cyclocross races posted on NLcameras? Will it all be behind a pay wall? Asking for us poor fans.

    Tour of Flanders was great but also had some fine funny commentary, such as the comments at the start about the rubbish music which should be replaced with Danny boy and my favourite section at 3 hours 17 mins (approx) where the team are all actually sleeping with the mics on ha ha, almost to the point of snoring, until someone wakes? and says wake up just off the mics. Class.

    There are 3 motorbikes in the inside of a curve. Why do they slow down and wait where riders make their beeline? Motorized vehicles' drivers have to give way and keep clear of racers, not the other way round! Are these guys properly trained?

    Although I'm a huge sports fan, for time reasons I only manage to follow the TdF and the Giro each year. But the Ronde this year has convinced me that I ought to better myself. It was sheer madness...cobblestones...narrow roads....the climbs..or...all of it in some places. Hell! Had it not been for Europsport hopping back and forth to Italy in their coverage, I would have enjoyed it even more. Bad luck for Alaphilippe, it would have been an epic threesome at the end. But van der Poel deserved it all right.

    Great racing update Dan, done in your inimitable style as always. Just a heads-up...Strava has without notice, switched the default Flybys privacy setting to 'off'. This was allegedly done as a result of a person complaining that her privacy was infringed by this feature, which went viral. Her post was technically/factually incorrect but it didn't stop Strava going into damage control to correct it. Strava users now have go back into privacy settings to enable it and hope their friends do the same. This was a great feature and it needs resurrecting. DC Rainmaker posted a recent story on this. Hopefully this can get a mention in one of your GCN shows 👍

    Oh, the irony. Cyclist runs into the back of a motorbike and blames the motorbike. Just like how every time a car runs into a cyclist and the driver blames the cyclist. I still feel gutted for Alaphilippe. One of my favorite riders to watch. But, you have to pay attention. Blame should either be on Van Aert for drafting off the motorbike and then dodging at the last second, or Alaphilippe for not paying close enough attention. It's a very sad and unfortunately situation, regardless. Hope he heals up quick. Also, Van Aert may have been gracious to Van der Poel, but you could see his disappointment in every camera shot. Even on the podium. Kristoff was excited to get third. Van de Poel was over the moon to win. But Van Aert barely sprayed his champagne and you could tell by his body language just how disappointed he was not to have won.

    watching wout v vdp sprint, and have been watching cycling for 32 years....I realised for the first time that 150m in a slow start sprint there is no chance to slip stream. Not enough road. There is no time and the guy on the wheel is giving away a bike length. Basically if its slowing down with 200m to go you roll alongside or you preempt and kick yourself.

    Motorcycles should be forever to pull over either in the grass, a side road or driveway. Doesn’t matter how wide the road is if the last person can’t see over a taller rider he shouldn’t have to be surprised when his view opens up to the back of a motorcycle. New rules needed for motorbikes.
