Not much CX chat itt but Namur was an absolute classic. The course was muddy, the weather was terrible, Iserbyt seems to have gotten hypothermia, just brutal conditions. Riders crashing left and right. Both the menís and womenís races were entertaining but the menís in particular was one of the best I can remember. Definitely check it out if you have access.

this poo poo was pretty transfixing. gotta feel bad for toon aerts though

You do. I saw this morning that he broke a rib so that sucks. He didnít look too bad on the podium so hopefully he can continue, especially now that heís the cup leader.

There have been some medical studies showing a relationship between elite cyclists and low bone density, so itís not out of the question.

Carmen (?) Alvarado lost the cx World Cup title by crashing during basically the last kilometer of the last lap of the last race of the season while she was on the front. Brutal

Need to see how this shakes out for US coverage vs. nbc gold and flobikes, especially for olympics next year.

I had been doing the eurosport sub with vpn, but they've locked that poo poo down so hard it's just too much of an annoyance.

As of now GCN doesn't have rights to any of the grand tours for the US market so it isn't really a good option. I'll stick with NBC Gold ad-free streams for what they cover and pick up the rest on Eurosport if I can be bothered to.

Cycling doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to testing so a third of the peloton probably has COVID.

He's still 2nd overall without being able to race this year and would be within a dozen points if he didn't get penalized for his bump on WVA. I think it's a little premature to put him out to pasture.

The worst thing about the doping spectre over this sport is that I can't watch a performance like that without wondering. Beyond the TT does Pogacar even have a supporting team this year?

Good to see porte on the podium finally, the year before he returns to working for someone else lol

The last round of doping scandals did a ton of damage to the sport so it's understandable but yeah pretty funny to watch everyone just dance around the issue.

There would probably be more "just asking questions" in the english language press if it were Froome or G who got blitzed off the mountain and not a Slovenian dude on a Dutch team.

We'll never know either way and it's a weird season anyway since everyone is fresh. I'm sure some people took advantage of the lockdown and the relative lack of testing but whatever, it was a still good race and an exciting finish and hopefully that continues.

Tom Pidcock to Ineos is a done deal

Look forward to the young rider known for his explosive rides to win 3 stages of the baby giro being relegated to pacing Thomas up climbs

I just learned this morning that Porte is headed back to ineos, and now this? Why must they ruin everything. Gonna be sky train vs jumbo train but at least this year was fun!

A standard bottle is 500 mL. Assuming randomly packed spherical lead shot with a density of 64% you can carry 320mL or 3.6 kilos of lead per bottle. With one bottle in the TT bike cage and an additional 9 in the vest you could add approximately one half of an Alaphillipe to your weight. Upgrade to tungsten and you could get an entire world champion on your back for the downhill TT.
