Ok, here it is in a few words,
MSR, Nabli, what can you say, epic!, also Ewan has arrived big time, no doubt he will win it one day.

I haven't had a chance to watch yesterday, but sage made a statement about Flanders and Roubaix for sure.

I believe that Fubo TV will be carrying it.
They are pricy, but have a free 7 day trial.

NBCSN will show 3 hours of PR 6PM, Sunday the 8th.

They will show Volta a Catalunya, Stage 1 4:30 PM Sunday the 1st. I'm betting it's a synopsis.

Thanks for posting, will set the DVR.

BTW Catalunya was a cracker of a race, each stage was awesome, it's going to be tough to really get a feel for the whole race in one 90 minute show.

Tiz-cycling videos of Tour of Flanders

They have the full video and one of the last 30K. We watched the latter last night and it was great! 'Nuff said on that. The commentators are Carlton Kirby and Sean Kelley.

Were you able to watch it on Tiz? when I clicked I just got spam links.
I did find the final 30k on youtube (in English) but would like to watch the final 100k.
They actually have the full race from KM0 up on youtube but it's in dutch (or maybe flemish).

Paris-Roubaix

Eurosport were good enough to show the entire race from start to finish. For us the race starts at about 7pm and finishes around 1am, so we lost a bit of sleep. I was originally intending just to watch live up to the Arenberg cobble section and then catch up this morning with the recording, but one thing led to another and we watched live to the end. Well worth watching.

Great Race!

We watched the replay on NBC Sports Gold, skipping through most of the early parts, but watching the last 75K which was exciting. I thought it was a terrific outcome, well deserved by all three who finished on the podium.

Great Race

Watched the last 100 km on Eurosport but unlike Nick, for me the race was at normal hours. I couldn`t have been happier with the result, although it would have been a well deserved win for either rider. It really is a brutal race, and we will get to see some of the cobbles again in this years Tour.

I also tuned in at 100k to go.
With some waffles and Belgium beer for breakfast :).
I think it was a fantastic race, it was totally "on" and explosive from 70k out.
I thunk this one will go down in the books as one of the really good ones.

Who's ready to name names? It's Tuesday for cryin' out loud.

Nick, I heard on BBC this AM the Commonwealth Games TT's are being run in a heat wave. They interviewed the African who introduced Froome to the sport, in his fifth Games. Always the promoter, 👍👍.

I think it's safe to name names...

The max temp each day at the games has been high twenties Celcius, which is four or five degrees higher than the long term average for the Gold Coast at this time of year, but not really heat wave conditions.

A lot of Australia has had much warmer temps than normal recently - our max temperatures here so far this April have been about 10 degrees warmer than normal - 30C rather than the long term average of 20C, and there's been bugger-all rain for a couple of months. Good for cycling but not for farmers...

Naming names

I don't usually participate in race commentary, but there seems to be much gnashing of teeth over when you can discuss the specifics - all you have to do is put spoiler in the thread title and you can discuss whatever you want before, during and after the race, no?

I DVRed the NBCSN coverage and finished watching it this morning. My goal was to avoid seeing the results here and on the web. I did not make it. Yesterday afternoon I opened YouTube and on my recommended list was a picture of the smiling winner holding the pave' trophy, never mind.

What a strong and bold move and congrats to the winner.

Footnote: with the heavy usage of DVRs how long does the embargo of forum discussions of race results last?

How about a debate?

Ante up, this walking on eggshells gets old, robs the passion.

Okay, a starting point:
Euro races are usually over by 18:00 GMT
That's 5 standard hours from the east coast
ONE O'Clock PM Eastern time, EDT or EST day-of-the-race.

That's right, with this schedule the ink isn't even dry and we're talking about it.

Between creativity and civility we can find something.

The beauty and simplicity of the above plan is it avoids the looming stage race issue doesn't it. So that's two debates, one-day and stage races.

It seems I average 50% on geting spoiled in one way or the other.

I fanboy on Sagan enough it is easy enough to read my posting of a stage race he is in as a spoiler.

So how many days for me to stay silient? Note my loud silence in this thread. Especially the one day classics some of us get to it later, even on the second weekend is seaiy to have spoiled.

Debate

Read my post above. There is a VERY EASY answer to this. I don't even care, but the discussion wastes bandwidth.
