Liege-Bastogne-Liege

Who's your favorite?

Rebellin looked top-notch in Fleche Wallone. Schleck I don't think has the kick that he needs. Cadel could pull it out if he doesn't go too early again. Sammy Sanchez has shown himself to be dangerous in these things.

Wish I could watch it, but I'll be at a race myself.

Is there a good linky for the team line-ups?


Speaking of team line-ups, it could be argued that a GT is won by the strongest team. How important are teams in the Classics?

Haussler? Maybe the last big noise he makes for a few months.

Is Frank back? I thought he had been sidelined for LBL. I think Rebbelin would be a sweet win.

TIVO or DVR can fix that problem

Cunego...had a good race last week and is coming into form.

I will be interested to see how Basso does. He won Trentino yesterday, and flew in to race today.

Good morning BF nation,

Does anyone have a working link to streaming video of the race. I've tried all the links on cyclingfans.con and none work for me.

Many thanks in advance,

LesMcLuffAlot

Gesink and Kroon will also be people to reckon with. Interesting that nobody mentions Valverde

We are celebrating in Luxembourg tonight - way to go Andy

My only issue is I was out riding and my Sky box (think Tivo in europe) didn't work - damn ... gotta wait until they replay it tomorrow afternoon to try a recording.

Bet if Andy faded Frank was ready for a go ... seemed he was up for this despite the crash

oh Andy what a break! And Rebellin's had quite the classics season. Poor Gilbert getting his doors blown off on home soil, ugh. General question: what/whose flags were those with the horizontal blue and white strips with the red lion. Is that a Luxo flag or is it Breton? cheers.

Actually it isn't the offical flag - the Lux flag looks more like the Flag of the Netherlands with a lighter shade of blue - a tri-color with horizontal red, white and pale blue stripes (Holland has same colors as France but on a horizontal plane).

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Flag_of_Luxembourg

The flag you see is the "popular flag" - it is based on the Duke's coat of arms. There is still a movement afoot (Initiativ Roude Liw) to change the offical flag. There are actually now versions of the Tri-Color that include the Red Lion ... a compromise type of model.


I love the Roude Liw myself. Actually have an old Lux national cycling team jersey in that pattern.
