Thanks! I really appreciate that!

Great. Another "flat" classic. I still have a problem while doing my calendar of racing. I instinctively choose "flat" classics. Then I realise it's not particulary flat. My role for this race was work at the head of the group for 30 kms. Four riders in a breakaway. Last big climb created some gaps in the peloton. 24 riders in main group (I was the only one from my team) and then peloton with 85 riders.

As I was the highest placed rider from TEAM Philips, I can say it was okay. But 17th place alone not that much.



i68.tinypic.com/25tkmye.jpg


Cobbles! Not that much, but still! Five guys up front with Van Goethem from Philips. Maximum +4'30. Everything ends easy with a mass sprint.

13th place from mass sprint is really nice. Still I have "only" 68 in sprint.



i63.tinypic.com/4l1qth.jpg


Le Samyn! Another classic with cobbles. This time it might be slightly better than in Kuurne. Just two riders up front, maximum +4'20. Will this ends via another mass sprint?

Last stage was also flat. Lars Boom was favourite to win this race after great prologue. My - and other teammates too - job was to protect the yellow jersey. Stage 3:

i68.tinypic.com/fva1ox.jpg


Oh yeah! First of my main three goals for this part of season. Let's look at the favourites:

i63.tinypic.com/rmpkee.jpg

No place for Boom, but I believe he can do his best here! Now, race: I decided to not go for a breakaway as my team wanted. They also wanted top 50 result by me. Big breakaway - 17 riders. They had maximum time at about +5'00. Still, nothing dangerous.

1Zdenek StybarQuick-Step Floors5h01'57
2Jens DebusschereLotto - Soudals.t.
3Florian SénéchalFDJs.t.
4Guillaume Van KeirsbulckLotto - Soudal+ 1'44
5John DegenkolbBora - Hansgrohes.t.

7Jasper StuyvenTrek - Segafredos.t.
8Yves LampaertQuick-Step Floorss.t.
9Adrien PetitCredit Agricoles.t.
10Edward TheunsTrek - Segafredos.t.
25Jonas DuurhuusTEAM Philips+ 5'24

Boom finished 16th. Decent performance, but I expected something better from him. Even looking at my stamina - which is like 66 now - I finished on very acceptable 25th place! Congrats Stybar for the win!

Only thing I'm waiting now is my first win this season Grin

i68.tinypic.com/jg5dub.jpg


Now E3! Can Stybar repeat his great victory from Dwars? Favourites:

i65.tinypic.com/34zbxvs.jpg

Again my objective was top 50. It's all very possible. I hope also for a top 15 by Boom here. Ten guys in a breakaway - maximum time at about +5'20. This race was even more selective than Dwars. I was doing my best but I lost my energy at about 30kms from the finish... And I was with Boom in second group of favourites!

1Peter SaganTrek - Segafredo4h42'43
2John DegenkolbBora - Hansgrohes.t.
3Greg Van AvermaetLotto - Soudals.t.

10Andrey AmadorFortuneo - Oscaro+ 1'36
37Jonas DuurhuusTEAM Philips+ 2'49

This time Boom was 19th. As I didn't have any more energy it's a miracle I finished 37th.

would be great if Jonas could receive the go for some breakaway action in one of those cobbles

To be honest usually when team wants from me something like finish in the top 50, they also wants a breakaway. Like in previous two races. But I believe (especially with my stamina not being that high enough) it's better to concentrate on good place at the end.



i66.tinypic.com/beh637.jpg


Not that much cobbles this time. I'm preticting mass sprint. Favourites:

i64.tinypic.com/2cel0mg.jpg

Four riders in a breakaway - +6'08 was maximum time I saw. Nothing exciting happened so it ended via mass sprint:

Yet I completely didn't expect this result from me. I'm very proud because I finished before many great riders that are better than me! It's great, I feel good.

Wow, great job! Just was about to say you have nothing to loose by trying to go for it via break, but now that appeares in a very different light!

Flat classic! Yahoo. This time I was a team-mate and I had to working at the front of peloton. It's all fine as it ended via mass sprint. It could and probably should been different. I attacked because peloton completely stopped working. Seriously. Breakaway easily increased they advantage, so I attacked. Because why not? Wrong...

Flat classic with some really nice cobble sections and +4 in RDC! Take a look at this: (Oops, a little preview on my stats)

I was only hoping that it'll end via mass sprint.

You know where that happen? 4 freaking kms from the finish! You know what's more frustrating? It was my second crash...

Usually I'm a team-mate, but sometimes after good results in the first stages I'm becoming a leader outsider or someone which goal is points classification.



i68.tinypic.com/29n6sdc.jpg


A little amount of hills with some cobbles. I don't think I can finish this in a main group, but who knows? Is it possible that team knows better? They are expecting top 5 from me... +6'00 for a breakaway - 11 riders. At some point even Boom decided to attack which was weird for some reason to me.

What a great finish! Seriously, I didn't expect to do top 5 as my team wanted. It seems that they know better my abilities than I. Also it was last days of my fitness peak. Just before La Fleche Wallonne and some break after it.



i68.tinypic.com/1trfoo.jpg


I took that race easy. Not my terrain. I was just protecting our leader, Wout Poels.

Results by photo, some troubles via export.

i65.tinypic.com/szxstj.jpg

I finished 168. +8'28"

Also. I'm thinking about something "weird" in future? What would you say for a one year with full calendar of racing in the World Tour? Only World Tour races, maybe even start in Grand Tour? (sadly I have same routes for every race every year...)
 
Croatia14
can't you bring in some more variants f.e. with emmeas pack of stages, so that it is going a lot more diverse in terms of routes?

I'll see what I can add. But as I'm in the middle of my 4th season (now you see my third Pfft), I don't know if it's worth it. Expansion Pack might be soon enough so I'll might just add stages from that.

Ah! The Yorkshire! Now it's this part of the season when I'll do "domestique" role. Not many good results to come I believe.

Stage 1: I was working at the head of the peloton. I also tried to give Wippert the best possible position for a final sprint, but he decided to sprint very early...

Belgium! It might be fun race. Probably again my role will be "work at the head of the group", but I'll try at some finishes for a top 10. It will be hard as I had a break and now I'm riding with fitness at about 80%.

Stage 3: Hilly stage... But actually it ended via mass sprint. Just look at FDJ here:

It ended via bunch sprint, but with not small peloton. Happy for De Kort, great finish!

Stage 5: Last stage and flat. C'mon Wippert!

TEAM Philips is strong. Superb win by Spengler: from the breakaway, almost caught at the finish. I was also very close.

Somehow I was the highest classified rider from my team. I don't know how. Maybe if I could ride that opening ITT better... Who knows?
