Re: Contest #2 - Milan-Rome and Bissagne-Languedoc [Cat. 2]

Most of the pyrenean climb are impraticable. Valter 2000 si a well known ski station wich is salted every winter to allow tourist to get to the station. Even the lower ones like Marie Blanque are a reach (Peyresourde for example is fine due to the ski station, Mentè maybe too). I'd say anything abo...

Re: Contest #2 - Milan-Rome and Bissagne-Languedoc [Cat. 2]

To Belgian4444 and jajoejoe I would like to point out that you have entered Pyrenean climbs that were impracticable in March due to the altitude reached I don't think that there is much likelyhood of impracticability, in a couple of days the Volta a Catalunya is going to Vallter 2000, the region is...

Re: Contest #1 - Entry contest [Cat. 3] - Voting

First of all: You may shoot me, but if a Classics race had a Time Trial, i just didn't look at the rest. :ehmmm: There are no TT classics, and I really don't know why you would use a TT as a training for classics. So the BinckBank Tour is not a classic riders tour ? :asd: Basically any classics sta...

Re: Contest #8 - La Vuelta 2020 - VOTING

THIRD PLACE: jibivalverde Stage 3 to 16 is very good but the first two stages feel underwhelming and are very weird. The kind where the mountains are too far for attacks to happen (even in the break probably) but too hard maybe for sprinters to win and effectively chase. Stage 17 is also very weak ...

Re: Contest #8 - La Vuelta 2020 - VOTING

A bit OT but I would love if we had a Peace Race contest for next year. It used to be the Grand Tour of the Eastern Bloc during the Cold War. It involved Czechoslovakia, Poland and Eastern Germany. The race touched Prague, Warsaw and Berlin every year. It could be very interesting to make. It was a ...

Re: Contest #8 - La Vuelta 2020 - VOTING

I think the fairest thing would be for you to keep your route in the contest (which is quite good, by the way) but maybe change that stage as I think many of us would have planned a stage into Andorra otherwise. I think it's the correct trade off. Andorra offers many more opportunities but Val d'Ara...

Here is my Vuelta. The race will begin as the actual one a thuesday. There will be three rounds of 6 days of race separated by 2 rest days. This race is designed to be a nervous race with many stages where leaders can lose time or attack. Sprinters will however be welcome in many stages, giving the...

All regions get a stage start or finish. Andalucia, Casti...

The Torello stage with Coll de Bracons is great and so is the Rat de Penat climb as the first MTF and the Cuenca stage. Stage 8 to 1...

Re: Contest #4 - UCI Road World Cup

I think the rules are fine, different cyclists can have a different kind of season this way, each with a different recovery time. This way, a sprinter may have its recovery time for example around the Vuelta or the Giro if he doesn't partecipate while a climber may do it in February/March or right a...
