Not certain how many of you follow racing but I scan the scedules at this time of year to see when it is going to be on British Eurosport. San Remo is a one day event and to me takes all types of riding skills- Hills- speed- stamina and the finish.
Just suffice it to say that we are doomed- the younguns are improving. Going over the top of the last hill and a bunch of 60 riders- 30 of whom had a chance of winning. They were climbing the 9% 6 km hill faster than I ride on the flat and this was after 200 miles of racing. It did finish up as a sprint for the line and ********* won. and he won it well.
After his lack of showing so far this year -he proved that he is ready for the full seasons racing- but it still surprised me.
How many of you that follow racing would have given him a chance at the start?
