/ Tirreno - Adriatico
Quality racing. Tour contenders slugging it out on March. Brilliant.
Enjoying the racing but not enjoying the combination of that Lampre kit and those hideous Merida bikes. It's like some late 80's flashback gone bad.
Some steep climbs too ;-)
Bah aint the rake tho are they, or the Gap of Mamore :)
Reminds me of the last Kelloggs Tour when they went up Riber Hill, most of them were off & walking except for Yates & Phil Anderson who'd sussed it out and zipped up using nice big rear blocks then had time to stop at the top; change wheels and still have a lead.
