2nd Monument - Tour Of Flanders

Postby great uncle bulgaria on Wed 28/Mar/12 1:38pm

96th Ronde Van Vlaanderen this Sunday.

Cobbles, vicious climbs, vast numbers of drunken spectators, a new route lapping horrible climbs, threats of tacking the new route in protest.

What more could we want? :thumbsup:

Will it be a showdown between Boonen and Cancellara?
Boonen is in fine fettle taking Ghent Wevelgem and E3 Harelbeke but can he match Cancellaras power on the cobbles?
Cancellara looked so strong again in the Milan San Remo, and in Ghent Wevelgem

What of Gilbert who has had some bad luck so far this year with crashes and punctures??

The possibilities go on!

Sagan , Friere, VanMarke, Pozzato, Chavanel . . . .

Whaddaya think?

Anybody know of any TV coverage?

Wooo, SBS says its live on SBS 1 at 10:30pm which means 8:30 our time I think. It also says 'live to Eastern states' I assume that includes Tassie where we get the signal from :eh:

To briefly summarise Mrs Cyclenutnz:
Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab Fab

There were nearly tears over that dirty aussie taking advantage of him in San Remo. Which is the problem with watching Oz coverage as she muted the gushing about how wonderful Gerro is when they covered the race on Sunday. If Cancellara gets rolled on Monday morning any of you in the Waikato will know the origin of the anguished scream at 4am.

If Quickstep can't pull it off I will be stunned, sooooooo much horsepower. I'm picking Chauvanel to do what Devolder did to Boonen a few years back.

My dark horse is Sagan.
