    I'm lazy. Can we get a list (and possible US television) for the classics?
    Chesco United repped this.

    Looks like a few races cancelled today across the continent.

    Was only able to catch a bit of yesterday's race. The Sporza stream was really horrible.

    Don't really understand why K-B-K was canceled.
    We drove home from the Ardennes yesterday (passing through Kortrijk which is a stone's throw from Kuurne), and apart from the cold, there were no real issues on the road that would have prevented that race to proceed. I can only assume it was much worse around Brussels, otherwise that decision made no sense whatsoever.

    Well, the promoters were not insured as well, so they will be taking a bath.

    Nice to see young Yanks leading their teams at Paris-Nice.

    I love Strade Bianche. Awesome race.

    scarponi attacked but really not could get a good advantage. Talansky picks up the pace and stretches the lead bunch more. Brave!

    Now Porte attacks and makes a gap. Unfortunately no one wants to/or can help the yellow jersey.

    I think Porte is going to get it.

    Porte gets it and probably the race leadership. The others spending way too much time looking at each other.

    Menchov second
    Talansky Third
    Van Garderen Forth (no time bonuses for him)

    from CN ticker.

    Well, was Talansky too aggressive for his own good? Porte had the team support but he marked a number of attacks before unleashing an unbeatable move inside the final 3km.

    Maybe down to experience. Doesn't help that Garmin doesn't have good support for him as well.
