    Classics!

    For the first time since the season began I have free time to watch a race. Very excited to get a chance to see both the Strade Bianche and Roma Maxima races this weekend. Seems like everyone is focusing on the Paris-Nice race next week but there's just something about the one day events that I enjoy more than the stage races.

    Why no Tour of Flanders on NBC Sports?

    You could fall off a cliff and die.
    You could get lost and die.
    You could hit a tree and die.
    OR YOU COULD STAY HOME AND FALL OFF THE COUCH AND DIE.

    Who knows. There's probably a dog show or something on April 6 I'm sure there will be plenty of options over on Steephill.

    I think they own Universal which carries Flanders. I used to get this but Comcast dropped Universal a few years ago. They showed a lot of racing. Giro, Vuelta, Tirreno-Adriatica, Tour of the Basque Country etc.

    Really miss it.

    Wish I could watch Strade Bianche. The Giro hit some of those roads a few years back and it was pretty exciting. I think one year Cadel won in a mudfest and then another year Nibali was attacking on downhills, how he stayed upright I'll never know. The guy seems fearless on a bike.

    This along with Roubaix are the most interesting one day races to watch IMO.

    NBC Sports this time of year? Hockey classics that early in the morning. Far more important than a bike race.

    I watched the Women's Tour Of Qatar. It was depressing. 80% of the few people along side the road were police. And I do mean few if it were a movie each police officer would have a spot on the credit roll.
    Perish any man who suspects that these men either did or suffered anything unseemly.
