In the Tour de Romandie we have a tie between CyclingMonk and Wiscot, Chapeaux. The autobus was well formed behind the winners!

Overall CyclingMonk is looking a bit too strong for the chasing field.

The wheel seem to have fallen off my picks. I think I need to find a new coach!

Picks now open for The Giro.

In Liege Bastogne Liege Timmy42850 saves our collective blushes with a fine win and in a strong finish Chuckp takes the win in the Femmes. Chapeaux.

CyclingMonk responds to the chasing bunch with a slight increase in temp in the overall.

All subject to protest etc………

I’ll hold the Tour of Romandie open till the morning UK time to give you folk in the US time to enter this evening (after midnight UK time). I hope I remember to close it tomorrow morning!

Wow! What a win for Remco! That attack was Merckx or Hinault-like. And to win by 48 seconds against a quality field. Maybe the Remco haters will pipe down a bit now. Big Lefevere must be a bit happier – but worried about Alaphilippe. That was a seriously nasty crash.

My picks were the usual rubbish – a few NITROs and that was it.

Yes, that was a big crash. A shout out of respect goes to Bardet, who gave up his race chances to help Alaphilippe.

We have 2 clear winners in La Fleche Wallone with Timmy42850 taking a strong win in the Femmes and Wiscot taking his second clear win in the Men. Chapeaux.

Overall CyclingMonk retains a strong lead and with Teocalli appearing to puncture we now have a loose chasing group for the remaining podium places. Still a long way to go though!

All subject to the usual cockups and protests!

Two NITROs in each PR!

Another stupid spectator casing even more woes for Quick Step. If Cav shows any form at the Giro, I think they’ll pull him and send him to the Tour. They’ve had (by their standards) a piss-poor season. Just having Cav at the Tour and the possibility of #35 will get them plenty of PR. And if the wee man gets it, then its massive.

In the UK we have a term for this…….Bollocks! Will pick up before I go zzzzzs.

Then again – please try harder with your spelling!

I don’t want to be prescriptive but the way my scoring spreadsheet works is only on surnames so I have to edit all names to the lowest common denominator when I copy over to the scoring spreadsheet and edit out first names etc and check spelling (badly!). It’s a bit manual and somewhat prone to error and my eyesight!

I’ve fixed the points- part of it seemed to be me not being able to read in straight lines in copying the results from the spreadsheet to the result table for the Men. Fixed the missing spelling in the Femmes. I need to adjust the flags for the men but will do that tomorrow.

I think the points are correct now. Hopefully!

Not such a high scoring weekend for Amstel Gold. In the Mens’ race we pretty much all finished in the Autobus with Haldy34, Timmy42850 and Wiscot just nudging an extra gasp at the front of the Bus. In the Femmes we have a clear winner in Haldy34. Chapeaux. Just waiting on someone to spot my cockups for the week! (Now corrected) Overall we missed an opportunity to pull back some of CyclingMonk’s lead and the field is strung out down the road in pursuit. Picks now open for Paris Roubaix.

Ronde van Vlaanderen gives us two clear winners in Haldy34 in the Femmes and Timmy42850 pushes a tyre ahead of a bunch sprint. Chapeaux.

All pending my usual cock-ups!

That finish reminded me of the 1985 Liege Bastogne Liege when Roche and Criquelion were out in front with a 50-50 chance of winning and then started fannying about . . . until Moreno Argentin barrelled up behind them to steal the win. D’oh!!

Terrible racecraft from Pogacar. Totally boxed in. Strongest guy in the race too.

That race was really exciting to watch for this new cycling fan. Wild how van de Poel kept with Pogacar during those climbs when Pogacar was trying to pull away.

I think there might be some scoring discrepancies as I think I got 14 points in men along with the race winner flag since I had Stefan Kung and Pogacar in the wrong place with van de Poel winning. It looks like the women’s race also had some alternate spellings for Kopecky that gives Haldy and CyclingMonk an extra point.

Somehow there was an error in the calc sheet for the mens race and it was only giving 11 for a win. Corrected. For the spelling I correct them (usually) in the excel sheet I use but I copy into the results table the spelling you folk enter. Though sometimes you manage to confuse the heck out of me and other times I just miss the spelling. I think the women’s is correct now too. I could be wrong……..!
