Data geek heaven at PCS

Not much news in the regular places (Cycling News text updates, various preview sites, etc.) so I was digging around to find anything more about the Bretagne Classic than a) it is on, b) all my Superclasico riders started, remarkably.

There is just a ton of wacky info here
https://www.procyclingstats.com/race...live/livestats

The data guys with a cycling problem sure found an outlet for their fetish. Or is it the cycling guys with a data problem? A la the Hash House Harriers -- the drinkers with a running problem.

I realized I forgot about this, so I checked the PCS link and of course Quinten Hermans has a minute on Alaphillipe and Pogacar! Only Vingegaard and Alaphillipe for me but that's better then nothing!

Really enjoying all that data they gather now, and the on-bike cameras are pretty neat also.

PCS has been my go to site for stats and other info about pro cyclists and races for quite a few years. Little links they have at the side of some of their race data and other things take you to some of their more interesting stats and things they've compiled.

In my professional life I'm a data geek, and for my own riding, I pay attention to numbers a fair bit, but for following bike racing, that site is TMI for me. It goes beyond the limits of my interest.
