The Tour de Yorkshire pelotons served up a Double Dutch sprint fest in Doncaster, although technical issues left us with nowt but tantalising glimpses of the action. Over in Switzerland we were treated to a scintillating, if soggy, Tour de Romandie queen stage.
It’s a Saturday round up from the Tour de Romandie and the Tour de Yorkshire [note only one is French speaking]. Both fascinating races so let’s get right down to it.
There’s life in the old dogs yet with Samu Sanchez, Philippe Gilbert, Fabian Cancellara, Sylvain Chavanel and Tom Boonen all at the sharp end of their stages yesterday. We also had some young pups putting in impressive performances and we wrapped up a firecracker of a women’s race. Here are your Final KMs from yesterday’s Tour of Dubai, Ladies Tour of Qatar, Etoile de Besseges, Herald Sun Tour and Volta a la Comunitat Valenciana.
