Men: https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/13900 Women: https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/13901 I always tried to make the women's race on the same roads as the men's race, with some small exceptions. I also made sure both races could be done the same day, with the womens finis...

Re: Contest #1 - European Pre-Season Races - VOTING

I used some of my own rules, for example routes with stages of 230 km I didn’t take even to consideration, because I think that’s never happening in races as these. 1) Benoit.guillot Didn't really see something wrong with it 2) Jibvalverde Just on the profiles you would have won. But there is a rail...

Re: Contest #1 - European Pre-Season Races

The first tour I made is a Giro di Sardegna. A 6-days stage race for sprinters and punchers, although there is one longer MTF and also a ITT. I think this tour looks a lot like Vuelta ao Algarve. https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/13842 The first two stages are normally for sprinters, wi...

Re: Contest #6 - Giro Upside Down

almost impossible to make a nice Giro with these rules. If I conclude it that are 6 regions with hardly any big mountains that we have to have a finish in in the last week. (because it would be pointless to start in these regions and then go back to calabria in the last week)

Re: Contest #4 - Voting

Ah so I assume the minimum of 5 stages in those countries means it is on all of them together, not a minimum of 5 stages in each This was never really answered i think? It was 5 stages in each country, not in all of them together. so 5 in france, 5 in italy, 5 in suisse, 5 in belgium for example, o...

Re: Contest #3 - Voting

Honestly, I can't vote on this one... I know I may always seem harsh but just as IamCeeKae I have some rules of my own. The most important thing for me is that the roads and finishes must be realistic, that is also the way I make my routes. And I can't find a lot of routes that have all the things O...

Re: Contest #4 - The Merckxian Grand Tour

Just to be sure, two half stages with a different finish count as two different finish places (for that 18)?

Re: Contest #4 - The Merckxian Grand Tour

Do you use the url or image-url? I think that's teh problem :)

easiest way to do it is uploading your images to this site: https://imgbb.com/

Then open the image, right click on it and copy image-url.

Re: Contest #4 - The Merckxian Grand Tour

At least 18 finishes must present the same finish (finish line positions / last climb if was a mountain stage / same finish if it was a classic) of a Merckx victory

How do we find those finish line positions? For some races it is on this site but 95% of his victories are not mapped i think.

A stage that starts in Italy and finishes in France for example, for which country does that stage count?

Re: Contest #3 - Tour de France 2019

- Gran Depart should be kept the same way (Stage 1 and 2 starts and finishing in Bruxelles, in same points. You can switch finish of stage 1 and 2 or also starts, but a finish point should remain a finish point and a start point should remain a start point) So this means we have to finish/start the...

Jibvalverde Het Edimbourg: Omloop het nieuwsblad is a quite rural race, this is a race almost the whole time in the city of Edinburgh. The cobbled sections are not really hard, but extremely dangereous as it rains a lot in that region. Bad roads + urban race + rain = riders protest :p Strade sauce ...
