I'm always impressed by the kind of weather he goes riding outside. I guess that's what you have to do if you want to live in Bergen and train, but I guarantee you he wouldn't have striked in the Giro

Something else for a change, here are two cycling songs by Alex Roeka:One from the perspective of a rider in the RVV:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PiZKXq0fVVQ&ab_channel=MattvanOosterhoutAnd one from the perspective of a domestique who suddenly finds a chance of actually being able to try for a win:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9gd7H2taFhA&ab_channel=AlexRoeka-TopicBoth Dutch though, but I hope some other Dutch/Flemish people can enjoy it. Especially the second one is nice imo.
Looks like NTT is not folding! Our boy Aru is saved. Going to Vini Zabu would have only led to an early retirement.
>>103978390The only reason sven nys didn't succeed on the road was because every one but him was doping at that time. https://sporza.be/nl/2019/04/01/wat-wout-en-mathieu-nu-doen-was-ten-tijden-van-nys-onmogelijk/He would have multiple Paris Roubaix if not
>>103978390Daily remind that Elia Viviani is 37th all time for career victories, between Philippe Gilbert and Felice Gimondi
>>103977365He's as dominant as van der Poel was with the juniors. Van Aert was a little boy with the juniors so didn't really win much.This season is a pain in the ass for juniors, all their races are cancelled. He has ridden with the pros a few times, but it's too early to see how he'll progress

>>103979639I'm thankful we have an objective measurement like the pcs rankings to end all discussion. Viviani had a pretty bad season but the European Champion was 2019's best sprinter, and he is still Olympic champion

Juraj SaganAsbjørn Kragh AndersenDavid van der PoelAntonio NibaliDayer QuintanaThere are more examples. How can these guys cope with the fact that they are useless, and only have a contract because of another reason than their cycling prowess. They are basically like Puck but worse, because women are incapable of understanding anything like honor anyway. These fuckers take up places in teams that could go to decent cyclists.
>>103980567Antonio nibz is actually not bad at all iirc
>>103980567A. Nibali and J. Sagan aren't too bad
>>103980567Well you say that but they're being paid to bike everyday, no pressure just carry bottle in the first 100k. Sounds pretty comfy to me

>>103981241I remember you said the same thing about Sunweb this season. They signed Aike Visbeek, whomst I rate, as performance director so I'm expecting them to turn it around.They also got Valerio Piva in from CCC/BMC, so it'll be a different team; not just Hilaire
>>103980808I actually do also think that, just didn't address it in that post. One thing at a time
How bad have you been? «For three days I had a fever of 39 °, the temperature did not drop despite taking the tachipirina in the morning, after lunch and in the evening. I felt broken bones and all the classic symptoms of the flu, for a week I had no taste and smell, which I have not recovered 100% yet. For the smells I did the tests with alcohol, for the flavors with mustard. Now I begin to feel the sweetness of honey, but when I drink the coffee I still don't feel the taste it should have ». How do you spend your days in quarantine? «I wake up late and eat late, play videogames and watch TV series. When the wi-fi doesn't work, I go out into the garden with the dog or start cooking, at the "hotel mamma" there is always something to learn ».Allow us the joke, it has been a very positive year for you. “In every sense, really. As far as work is concerned, I cannot complain about anything, for the rest, as for everyone, it was a particular and difficult year. Those who deny the seriousness of this virus that is upsetting the world and still insists on not respecting the rules that will allow us to defeat it should try it on their own skin. How much I have won in this atypical season, including the Oscar tutto BICI as the best Italian Under 25, makes me proud but now I just want me and my loved ones to get back to health. Sport is important, but in life there are other priorities ».
>>103983502He sounds like a very nice guy. Hopes he goes for the classic route so I can cheer for him

>>103994697How old is Shimano now?
>>103995507Damn, he actually still has some time then
>>103992986They have like 10 riders left. Watch them sign Cavendish and some other retards. We should really go back to relegation from the WT, this shitfest has nothing to do with top level cycling. They might be even worse than Wanty. Giro and Vuelta will be SEETHING that they have to leave local teams at home for this crap.
>>103996634has to be about the weakest defense there ever was
>>103996664For me it's epo to boost the rosiness of the athletes cheeks.
>>103996043Because the games is too easy and after a couple of years you're already a top rider, after 4 years you're maxedThey should make it harder to max your stats and add other game modes like lower potentials, harder gameplay, etc.Right now the only way to do that is with a database edit and I think once we finish with Shimano I will make another game where I remove some potential so even when you're maxed you have the stats of a quality domestique instead of a grand champion
>>103996634This guy has so many of these fantastical stories and explanations that it smells so much. I'm not really keen to suggest or accuse of doping but it feels like they're a Floyd Landis away from bringing the whole British cycling + Sky down, or at least greatly damage its integrity.In the case of Armstrong we were lucky to have such an aggressive WADA go after him; I get the feeling Sky going down would have so many ripple effects throughout the sport that there would be too many interests within cycling willing to turn a blind eye to the whole mess

July 2, 2003Museeuw: "A wasps' nest, can you work one out? I'm leaving on Wednesday for a training camp. I have no sight of the wasp. I have no control until 28/7."Landuyt: "Now I would take 80-100 wasps and at the start of the training camp a minimum of 40 and maximum of 60 wasps. Then completely clean from 19/7. It has to be in the inner tube. Test with washing machine."Museeuw: "Subcutaneously or in the nose?"Landuyt: "Always intravenously with wasp. Otherwise bingo. So certainly intravenously."July 27, 2003Museeuw: "I'm two above."Landuyt: "Take a bit of salt and drink. The washing machine always measures higher (1 or 2) than the real value. Everything in order?Museeuw: "Down to 49"July 28, 2003Landuyt: "Stand up and drink some more water. Everything OK?"Museeuw: "OK, no control."August 12, 2003Museeuw: "I arrived yesterday [in Denmark]. Had a WADA control. From Thursday afternoon 42. So no problem."Museeuw: "What is acyline?"Landuyt: "Don't touch."Museeuw: "Acclydine."Landuyt: "Found it. Too expensive. You have to take it for a long time and it's not proven that it works."
>>103996634>What do you mean, amphetamines boost performance? Blimey I didn't know anything about that!
>>103998137What, people in 2003 were doping? No way!!!!!
>>103998187I just wonder if they had any real belief if this "code" was going to be hard to decipher
>>103998464Funny bit from Michael Rasmussen's biography. At one point he rages because he was accused of being involved with some bust because one of the bags had a name on it that was related to him somehow (father's name or something, can't remember). And he was FURIOUS. Not because he was being accused, but because he wouldn't be that stupid and the implication that hee was made him ANGERY.
>>103998137Wasn't Landuyt a doctor for cows or something? Cyclists are so dumb.
>>103999086Sort of. He's a veterinarian lol

>>104000450Yeah... Also, check this out
>>104000515Imagine being worse than NTT
>>104000570Speaking of NTT; I haven't heard much about Nizzolo, even though he has no contract for next season, and he had quite a good season, a bit of a resurgence. Anyone know what's going to happen to our boy?
>>104000515Next year: Wanty - 0. Screencap this.
>>104001094I was going to make an inspired post that was totally going to DESTROY you but I don't see where a win would come from, definitely in the WT. Maybe a cheeky 1.1 win from my boy Van Poppel
>>103996634>We were a clean teamlel how can he say this if he doesn't even know what dirty is? Fucking clown. This is as good as an admission>>103996664It's a rock solid defence. Of course it's a complete fucking lie but they can't prove that.

>>104002437Kenyan athletes still train with EPO in 2020.
>>104000614Cyclingnews expects him to re-sign with Qhubeka-Assos (NTT). He and the team probably waited for the confirmation of the new sponsors.
One more weekend before cyclo cross becomes interesting again guys.
>>104000515big oofI'm sure they rank a bit higher if you go by points because while not getting victories they do finish in the top 10 a lot, but they're probably still second half
>>104007600I wanted to see team rankings based on points but I can't find it anywhere. On PCS I can only find team rankings with their own point system and UCI does individual and national rankings but not for teams (which is pretty weird considering by far most races are for clubs not national teams).
>>104007448It'll just be a mathieu parade lap every lap
>>104007840This is in 3 weeks though. Before that we’re going to laugh at iserbyrt believing he can beat won’t and pdicock
>>104007805It's autismo time. Calculate them!
>>104007875Well why would we expect him not to be beat pidcock? He was better than him most of the time last year
btw lads I finally decided to quit my job but not until the end of Feb. Hopefully the virus has fucked off by then and I will spend a few months cycling around Europe. Maybe go to a few races with my Pinot sign.
Lads, it's sunny, but also sub zero ;_;
>>104008467My cycling is way down because of poor weather. Today is looking good though. Just waiting for the roads to dry.
>The wheel operates on a system that coverts a cyclist’s weight/mass into power, via a mechanism in the rear wheel, that is converted into a boost for the bike that will make it travel at least 30 per cent faster, and possibly up to 50 per cent faster.Skellys btfowhat the hell is this?
>>104008500Sounds like someone invented a perpetual motion machine.
>>104008294Pidcock is 2 years younger and not a fraud winning only cyclo cross when the big boys are not here. I have a feeling he's going to be a much better cyclist than what Iserbyrt can dream of.>>104008383Good for you my friend. The vaccin thing looks promising, but you might have to inject yourself with a completely new type of vaccin developed in 8 months.>>104008500How many people will be stupid enough to think someone reinvented the wheel?
>>104008588>>>104008294>Pidcock is 2 years younger and not a fraud winning only cyclo cross when the big boys are not here. I have a feeling he's going to be a much better cyclist than what Iserbyrt can dream of.I think so too, Pidcock looks like he can become an elite climber/stage racer. I haven't seen much from Iserbyt on the road, but I think he's in his place with guys like Toon Aerts and Sweeck
My boy Henri Vandenanbeele has signed for Sunweb for the next 3 years2021 in their development team, 2022 & 2023 in their pro team. Pretty good news, he's a good talent

Who is the best rider without a major (Grand Tour stage/overall, classics, monuments, WC) win?
>>104009320Richie Porte maybe? He's had a great career with many gc and stage wins in WT races but never a stage win in a Grand Tour
>>104009320Some names:Guillaume MartinRichie PorteAleksandr VlasovWilco KeldermanJoão AlmeidaGeorge BennettFlorian SénéchalGiacomo NizzoloStefan KüngBenoît CosnefroyTim MerlierPatrick KonradBecause you didn't included one week world tour races
>>104009485Huh, I thought that my guy Richie won that 2013 Ax 3 Domaines finish only to do the reverse-Landis and lose 10 minutes the next day. Turns out he was 2nd after Sir Skeleton.
>>104009505Steven Kruijswijk too except for a TTT win in the TDF which is a bit of a grey area for countingAside from that his most major win is a stage in the Tour de Suisse (and overall win in Artic Race of Norway... yeah)
>>1040097432016 GiroStage 14:1. Chaves 6:00:162. Kruijswijk ""Stage 15 (ITT)1. Foliforov 28:392. Kruijswijk "" (I believe he lost by half a second)Stage 16:1. Valverde 2:58:542. Kruijswijk ""Poor Kruijswijk finished 2nd in the same time three times in a row. Obviously he was going for the overall win but just one win in those would've been supernice
>>104009505The most surprising here is Sénéchal. The guy looks so strong and he has almost 0 win.
>>104009505>Stefan KüngHe doesn't have any ITT win in any of the GTs? That's surprising to me tbqh
>>104009505>Stefan Küng>Giacomo NizzoloI don't accept these as they are both Eurpoean Champions
>>104009320You need to include the other WT stage races in your definition of a major win. Those are worth more than a single GT stage win.
>>104009902Kruijswijk deserves that TT win. Ebikers should be hanged.

>>104013817Riding with my bro
>>104013817>>104013906basedhow is cycling in benisland in summer? do you have to carry a mosquito net on your ride?
>>104013929I really like cycling in rural Finland. The only downside is that you gotta go north to have any climbing. Mosquito net is only required if you are bike packing and want to camp overnight. But glasses are required. And the mosquitoes get stuck in your downtube, and legs if you don't shave.
>>104013778its lots of fun
>>104013906That looks cold
>>104013817I had 24°C a couple of days ago.Fuck this, I want some cold desu.
Kinda surprised to see this, in light of how you hear all bikes are overpriced now due to covid>Eddy Merckx Lavaredo 68 Ultegra 2020>Full ultegra groupset (including the crank) with rim brakes>carbon frame>weight: 8.4kg >1600€https://www.12gobiking.nl/eddy-merckx-lavaredo-68-ultegra-2020What's the catch here? The weight?
>>104014729Weight seems alright too for the price
>>104013817>>104013906holy damn based
>>104014729Good price, but can't say I like the look
>>104019157I've been looking at the bike market the past weeks because I'm bored, and I'm so happy I decided to just not care about money and buy an entry level rim brake aeroad 2 years ago. I honestly couldn't wish for another bike, because I dont think they will be any better. Even the super high end stuff, all they got extra is electric shifting and maybe 500 grams less, but then you pay 3 times what I paid. With climbing wheels my bike weighs 7.0kg which is just great desu.
Teuns won and Shimano ended 10thMur de Huy is too much for Shimano, he loses terrain even at 99 effort, can't wait for the finish, next year I will try a long range attackLiege is next
>>104020412But hes 50kg, he should be good at that
>ywn scream at a bunch of shitters at the stelvio with your bros ;_;https://youtu.be/-zldlW-q62Q?t=374
>>104014729That is another overpriced bike. 3 grand for mechanical ultegra and cheap ass wheels. The only difference is it's on sale for nearly half price. It's a good deal now alright. Always good deals to be found if you're not fussy.

Is there anything more boring than doing sprint training bros? >1 hour training>55 minutes fucking around warming up, recuperating and cooling down>5 minutes of actual work
>>104044927I've started doing sweet spot ride on the trainer following and they're boring as well. Can you tell me a typical sprinting session, since the gyms are closed I might as well do some strength on the bike.

just got around to watching horner's new corner vid about shorts and ill be honest i had no idea that ur supposed to put cream on ur chamois before a ride. is that just a crusty old boomer butt thing or should i genuinely try it?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_qtAw3_kspQ
>>104057177Yeah, I always lube up. I use nivea cream on reasonably short rides, for longer rides and on holiday when I ride 6 hours every day I usually use assos which is better but also more expensiveIf you don't you'll end up with chafing, sores, infections and all kind of other stuff you don't want
>>104057177It's a thing. Only ever used it a for a couple of longer rides myself. Very rarely do I ever ride more than 3 hours though. Also it's just one of those thing that differs from person to person. Some people can't look at a saddle without needing to lubed up - others will never have an issue. Give it a shot - especially if you've had issues with comfort in any way.
Liege timeShimano at the start of the race goes in a breakaway with other 17 ridersLast 90kmhttps://streamable.com/ykv1l4
>>104057177I used to not do it until I did my first 200km ride. I remember that evening I went to a hot spring with some friends and my ass/gooch was raw and it stung so much when I entered the pool. Ever since then I lube up if my ride is gonna be longer than 2 hours. I also recommend that Assos Chamois Creme.
Fuck covid for killing australian races
>>104059304Poor manlet probably got distracted by that shitter Polanc shouting orders at him. Still, a decent top-10.
>>104057336>>104057399>>104060073yo thanks for the info ill give the nivea a try on zwift tmo and then invest in assos later if i like it
>>104057177always do it in rides over 1hUsually use the assos one because its the easiest to find here, but I've used a bunch and they all worked pretty good. Any very high fat cream works tbf. Putting it in the chamoix is better for longer rides, but just putting it on the skin is fine for 3-4h.
Everyone wants to know what I’m on.What am I on?I’m on my bike, busting my ass 6 hours a day.What are you on?
>>104068012My ass doesn't take well to putting the cream straight onto skin. I don't use any on rides shorter than 4 - 5 hours. Above that I might put very little into the chamoix. Also I find it that if I use cream I have to take a shower immediately after a ride or I get guaranteed saddle sores. Without any cream my ass is much more lenient to hanging out in shorts after the ride.

Superman joins Movistar tactics - i expect some big blunders. All other important Astana riders have renewed except Lutsenko who will be announced later they also snatched up the spanish u23 road champion and battistella who was u23 wrc in 2019

QUIZ TIME. Expert edition.It has only happened three times in history that a rider won a stage in all three Grand Tours in the same calendar year. One Spaniard in 1956, an Italian in 1958 and another Italian in 2003. Name them.
>>104098289bahamontes, coppi, petacchi
>>104098375Petacchi is correct!The other Italian had a son that was a sprinter in the nineties. The Spaniard won MSR twice and twenty Giro stages.
>>104098289I know the answer because it's in PCMWithout the game I would only guess Petacchi[spoiler]Johnny Glamour 2025[/spoiler]
>>104099164Based Johnny Glamour. It's sad we don't see him in the sport anymore, I think he could be a good coach for Shimano
>>104099164My hope was on you anon, I didn't think anyone else would know. Maybe with some more hints. The Italian is named Pierino and his son Adriano. The Spaniard is a legend and only Spanish monument winner until Oscar Freire. Miguel P.
