GCN+ has been such a terrible rollout. Theyíre using the Eurosport player and their links redirect to Eurosport but Eurosport tech help has no idea that GCN is using them and just keeps saying that Eurosport isnít available in the USA. I tried a VPN then saw this:



Its working fine on Eurosport itself so it must be on their software side.

Van Der Poel looks ridiculously strong. Omloop being a bunch sprint and KBK being smashed to bits is lol.

Itís definitely GCN. They show every race as available, even the ones they donít have the rights to air in the US. Seems very half baked.

Reminder that Van der Poel is here to do a lead out for his team.

I think Naesen is going to rip it up for Greg for a km. They're the only two I can think could bridge this looking at everyone elses legs.

Imagine breaking your collarbone 300 meters from the finish at KBK. If I was a professional cyclist, I would quite simply not do that

The GCN pass is just a wrapper around Eurosport coverage so I've stuck with Eurosport player and get to watch ski jumping and lawn bowls for free.

I love Mads's sprint form. Zero exaggerated movement in the upper body...just ducks his head down and thrashes his arms/bike to victory.

Pedersen owes Asgreen a few Carlsbergs (or whatever Danish people actually drink) for that one.

Edit: Seriously though, why did Asgreen bury himself there if not for a temporary Danish national alliance?

It wasnít just Asgreen either. As soon as Asgreen pulled up to the MvdP group, Soren Kragh Andersen put in a dig to keep the group stretched out around the final corner only to peel off before the sprint.

In Danish, we have a word which means that someone in uncontrollable, excessive, and defiant of regular civil norms - and Asgreen embodies being 'fandenivoldsk', because sometimes he just does poo poo like this for no apparent reason, and when he's interviewed about it afterwards he just said he had such a good time out there.
He's an absolute delight.

I do imagine Danes are beginning to focus on the spring classics, now that we've seen in the last years that they can be won by Danish talent, and would rather see it go to another Dane than someone they're on team with? There is a pretty strong sense of togetherness in the Danish collective spirit, as it underlies the whole 'hygge' we're completely failing to export to the rest of the world.
