- Will4563 : Names are spelled incorrectly. I'm sorry, i'm not italian but danish. Maybe I just pressed wrong on my keyboard. Local authorities are one of the main drivers of sponsorships in professional cycling, l think that the minimum we can do in our presentations is to spell the places names c...

5TH PLACE - JoostvandeBeek : Giro dell'Emilia --> The final climb is too long, and the one in the circuit is too steep in any case. Tre Valli Varesine --> Even though there is not brief descent between he Lancusi and Gaiano climbs, I think it's a very good entry. Milano-Torino --> I would've avoided...

Re: Contest #8 - La Vuelta 2021 [Cat. 1] - Voting

5th BETTO --> Not thorougly convinced. Stage 19 is just too much. I also don't like the Gamoniteiru stage as the penultimate stage, with the ITT as the last one. The mid-part of the Vuelta would give place to many breakaways and little GC fight, in my opinion. The Les Planes de Hostoles stage is qui...

Which version of the Gran Piemonte shall we emulate? Over the years, it has been a sprinters classic, one for puncheurs, and even for pure climbers.

Vuelta a España 2021 https://www.la-flamme-rouge.eu/maps/tours/view/19510 I propose a route in the typical style of the Vuelta, with many uphill arrivals (8 in total) and steep asperities near the finish line. I also kept the underlying religious theme of the Vuelta, with many Christian hotspots in...

5th place lukkier --> Close call with Diego12Alpe for a place in the top5. I would've expected a different approach to your two mountain stages (which are nice, don't get me wrong). It's basically 4 sprint stages (stage 4 would most likely end in a sprint in my opinion), one ITT, and two - consecuti...

Micek_52 --> Col de Marie Blanque is a key point of the 2020 Tour Hey, I think the rules said, that you must not repeat key points of last year race, not that you can't use that climb whatsoever. So if I made the race that would end on Marie Blanque, or that would be the final climb, it would be ag...

5th place - IamCeeKae --> Some stage locations seem quite unrealistic: La Fouillade might not have the capabilities to host a TdF stage, Rieumontagné Tohapi is just a camping site, not a major touristic hub. Many of the downhill roads of stage 8 are not fit to be ridden, same thing can be said for t...

5th benoît.guillot --> I don't like that only one stage passes through Denmark (zero bunch starts), the minimum number for one country was 2 in my opinion. I also don't like that the two "GC stages" are in the middle (maybe steeper climbs in Lillehammer would've worked better), leaving the...

II would just like to bring to everyone's attention that several of you have reused key passages from the original Tour by climbing Portet, Mûr-de-Bretagne, Signal d'Uchon or Beixalis for example.

Re: Contest #4 - Giro d'Italia 2021 [Cat. 1] - Voting

To clarify the question, even if they are on the same map on our site, a "sterrato" and a "strada bianca" are two different things for their surface (strade bianche are more cured, sterrato is more rough) and the Strade Bianche stage was clearly intended to be done in Tuscany. o...

Re: Contest #4 - Giro d'Italia 2021 [Cat. 1] - Voting

BETTO . Stage 2 and 3 are both for all sprinters. I don't agree with you. Villar Perosa Stage can be a sprint but for sure it's not a massive one. The only difficulty of the day is half a Km with a steep gradient in a city center, more than 10 Km from the finish line. It's not long enough for sprin...

Re: Contest #4 - Giro d'Italia 2021 [Cat. 1] - Voting

Non mi pare che le regole richiedessero una tappa di strade bianche ispirata a quella del giro vero, bensì di inserire almeno una tappa in cui si debbono percorrere strade bianche. La tappa Canazei-Malaga San Giorgio del mio giro contiene un tratto di strada bianca di 15 Km potenzialmente decisivo ...
