Can’t wait for it.

Van Aert, Van der Poel, Pogacar, Pidcock all appearance in very good form. Asgreen is getting there.

My best wish for this race is that Jumbo would not destroy it with its numbers.

Madouas, Pedersen, Turner, Matthews, Kristoff and many others.

Can’t anticipate it.

Van Aert, Van der Poel, Pogacar, Pidcock all look in superb form. Asgreen is getting there.

My only hope for this race is that Jumbo does not wreck it with its numbers.

The two Vans and Pogacar at least. A bit early to tell on Pidcock. Dwars is some distance from RVV.

Should probable get used to it, however to look the two-instances TdF-Champ Wunderkind as a RvV-Favorite is simply loopy…

If the final huge grand tour guarantees like Schleck and Quintana had introduced the entirety they regarded destined to, this of route would nonetheless have been completely absurd. Simply some other measurement, this guy…

I’ve been waiting so long for this thread to open as I even have so many questions for the CN experts.

I am going to my first ever Ronde this 12 months and getting an early train from Brussels to Oudenaarde Sunday morning. First off I am thinking will the trains be packed going to and from Brussels ?

But my huge query is will there be any kind of shipping to get to the likes of Paterberg or Oude Kwaremont or is it a case of either strolling or looking in Oudenaarde ?

I am so excited I can consider not anything else. I dream every night time of a van promoting chips w/curry sauce parked next to a van selling https://blue-story-streaming-vf-gratuit.tumblr.com/ beer.

Some thoughts: I would as an alternative go to kwaremont than Paterberg (greater space). If you’re top notch lazy, you may as nicely stay in Oudenaarde on the significant rectangular, there have to be many places in which you may follow the movement and the finish (and interviews and team buses and so forth) are all there.

In any way: you need to be capable of trap a bus to Kluisbergen from Oudenaarde (10K) and walk from there. Never carried out this on public delivery though. I must pick out a person up from the airport and will simplest maybe watch on the Paddestraat (and after that simply move home and watch on tv), however you ought to have a blast.

Van Aert, Van der Poel, Pogacar, Pidcock all look in excellent shape. Asgreen is getting there.

My best hope for this race is that Jumbo doesn’t smash it with its numbers.

there’s clearly a danger it occurs, yeah. For me, the extraordinary thing approximately the Ronde was once, that you may expect, stand up the street early on, get an advantage earlier than the big guys begin their attack, and stand a realistic chance to nonetheless make it to the lead to front, or at least with the favourites.

Van Aert’s and van der Poel’s superiority, combined with their choice to attack early on, already has a tendency to erase all tactical detail from the race. Now that Quickstep looks susceptible and Jumbo first rate strong, it can become a totally “boring” race, with almost no motion over the very last hour or .

  • #10

For the ladies’s race, I think you’d be silly to look beyond Van Vleuten. Because you would always be foolish to look beyond Van Vleuten. Vos of direction additionally can not be left out.

Balsamo and Wiebes are manifestly on pleasant shape, however… is the race perhaps a touch too difficult for them?

  • #eleven

Only element for sure is that the Belgian Pozzato doesn’t win

  • #12

I see Hotond as the plain area for Pog to attack.

I dont assume him to attend that long even though

  • #thirteen

I see a random Jumbo rider pulling a Devolder

  • #14

Sagan, Alaphillipe, Nibali and Remco not using. Pogacar will no longer win (it’ll flip out that he’s a gt rider after all). Asgreen and Bettiol are not in shape.

No opposition for MvdP. I’ll probably watch anyway at the off hazard that Jumbo make a race of it.

  • #15

Some thoughts: I might rather visit kwaremont than Paterberg (greater area). If you’re splendid lazy, you can as nicely stay in Oudenaarde at the significant square, there have to be many places in which you can comply with the action and the finish (and interviews and group buses and so forth) are all there.

In any manner: you should be capable of trap a bus to Kluisbergen from Oudenaarde (10K) and stroll from there. Never finished this on public shipping though. I must choose someone up from the airport and will only perhaps watch at the Paddestraat (and after that just move domestic and watch on tv), however you need to have a blast.
